I am not the biggest Superman fan (did you guys no
Should I drop this from my wish list? Not that ever have time to read....
I don't know, man (noticed how I spelled "know" correctly this time? WTF, Perry?
). If you have enjoyed any of the issues you have read before, it may be worth sticking around for. To me, and maybe I am just getting bad dialog vibes because I spell "know" as "no" now for some reason
, I was kinda surprised I liked it as much as I did at one time anyway. Jurgens is just hit and miss with me, writing wise, much less being a Supes centric title. I think I am gonna let you find out on your own with this one. You may really still enjoy it.
Myself, I am going to take the time I did enjoy this title, keep that as a fond memory and slowly back away from reading this. Again, after issue #976, when this four-part "Superman Reborn" crossover ends
Was able to get that arc started yesterday, but was too tired to finish the second, Action Comics part.Superman #18
- Good start to this, but ... no ... I shall wait until it is over. Don't want to say something just on speculation ... yet
At least we will finally find out
I hope. If they do this well, I am glad to see the return of the "long game" storytelling that use to be the norm in comics (not saying this is the only, recent example, just enjoy seeing it when it happens). Throw a shadowy figure's image in a scene and then see him again 3 months later and by the time he is revealed and his story is in full go, a year has past. That is the way you do comics!!
And remember when a character would show up in about 8 issues, various titles even, before they were elevated to their own comic? Would this Mosaic character done a little bit better with us had we, the readers, been able to see him, read about him in more than just 2 or 3 panels before he was thrust into his own "LOOK, DIVERSITY!" comic? You bet your ass. I am all for diversity, but the time for old companies to throw us a new title featuring a new character ... and expect anyone to buy that book, at $4 no less ... is gone.
Remember the text that use to look like this -
"Because you demanded it, BLAH-BLAH MAN"
Can we not wait until at least 3 people "demand" a character?
Okay, sidetrack over.
