Shows you how much power Snyder is hopefully gaining over at DC. Batman sales would be nowhere near where they are right now if another one of Jim Lee and Bob Harras's buddies were handling the writing duties.


No, but maybe the book would be readable, and we wouldnt have a toxic crossover ruining every other book.

There's a difference between not liking what someone is working on and wishing that they were no longer working. :smt011

It worked for us when we wished Chuck Austen into oblivion. I dont hear anyone complaining about that.

WTF is this rank?

I may actually have to try Red Hood. I like what I've read of Talon so far.

Considering Lobdell is currently writing four books, he probably just stepped away from one to focus on the others. What I read in Superman 13, he's got a halfway decent handle on the characters.

That's cause I'm not a confrontational person and it's easier to for me to shut up rather than argue with fantrolls. :P

I certainly don't know why Scott Lobdell is off "Red Hood," and it certainly is most likely that he just wanted to manage his workload after picking up Superman.

But one thing that has been touched on in this thread is absolutely true: If you move enough product in this line of work to the degree where you're "needed," at some point, you get to do whatever the fuck you want. Some guys turn it into their dream assignments, some guys turn it into creator-owned kingdoms, some guys turn it into power at a publisher.

But it's absolutely been that way ever since I was a kid, even moreso when Image was formed. So, yeah. There's no doubt in my mind that Scott Snyder is calling some shit over at DC. There's absolutely no doubt in my mind about that. He moves too much product for them for it to be otherwise -- keep in mind the last guy who moved as much product as Snyder is now DC's Chief Creative Officer, seewhatI'msaying?

Better that a group of "nobodies" who are as talented as Snyder's "friends" get to work on DC's book than a group of has-beens who trampled all over the industry in the 90's. :smt102

I don't have a problem with Scott Snyder getting his friends in the door if they're good writers
