Honestly, DC still has not completely earned back my trust but Rebirth, Reborn were enough of good steps in the right direction to make me start buying monthly again. So often the big hype around a celebrity creator coming on to a classic character is so often more about leaving their mark (or scorching the Earth). I want a creator who comes on to tell good Superman stories and I also want good (and consistent) art to bring it out and complete the package. Right now that’s worth far more for my continued monthly investment than the rock star reputation… Read more »

You make very salient point, and with good sound reasons and concerns hopefully, just like Superman being a symbol of hope, DC has learned more in the past seven years, then they have learned in seventy years, plus the overtures of the past year culminating with the restoring of the Superman’s all time “signature look” as this “NEW DIRECTION” is all set up to succeed. For me personally, along with what you mentioned I’d be happy with; 1). Compelling plots and (page-turning) stories, 2).

@jer. Well man I hope you’re right. But all the talk about “drastic changes” and “fallout” really leaves me cold. It’s in that vein of “Everything You Know Is Wrong!” “This Issue Someone Dies!” On and on. ..and for me it’s just like yeah modern comicbook writers have more than proven their ability to break the toys time and time again now. At the risk of over extending the toy metaphor, I think when comes to these characters we just have too many Sid’s in the business and not enough Andy’s basically. As for DC ability to learn from past… Read more »

Mattcomics and jer I agree with you two gentlemen. Rebirth and Reborn were exactly what we wanted and needed in order to get Superman back on track. For over a decade, he had been in a state of almost limbo. With creators throwing anything and everything at the wall, to see if it would stick. With Bendis, I’m having the same feeling I had when WB announced that Bryan Singer would be coming on board and making Superman Returns. The situation was very similar, a “creator” from the distinguished competition came on board and gave us “their vision/love letter” to… Read more »
