They’ve got to rework that “it was all just a dream” story after the backlash.

I wouldn’t be surprised.
The backlash on this was pretty loud. I follow DCcomics on instagram and that post had several thousand negative responses and insta is usually a pretty mellow place, I can only imagine the wash of hate that twitter got hit with.

Doomsday Clock is still quite ahead of continuity so its effects won’t be seen until later. Scott Snyder and James Tynion confirmed this in JL 31 since the JSA don’t exist in present day and aren’t remembered by anyone in the League, with them only appearing thanks to Hypertime time travel.

I’m so sad for Ivan Reis. One of the greatest Superman artists of the decade teaming up with one of the worst writers of any era.

Yes, just compare this cover versus Action Comics #1018’s cover…That is the art Bendis deserves.

Exactly what I was thinking. Bendis and Romita are a perfect match for their run.

I’m really hoping that Doomsday clock is Rebirth Part 2. I don’t want to see Ma and Pa gone again.
