DC if youre reading this, please bring back Tomasi/Jurgens on Superman. Brian Bendis is ruining this great character.

So disappointing. The Legion is my favorite group in comics and has been for many, many years. I was very happy when it was announced that they were finally coming back and now, I'm very disappointed in this mess that Bendis has delivered.

I HATE the changes made to all of the characters (changing their race, etc.). It just makes no sense. The Legion has always been diverse, with ch more

THE GOOD:

-Okay. So. I don't know much about Constantine. I decided to read this… well, because my friend recommended it. His recommendations are usually pretty trustworthy and it shows here. I really liked this issue.

-Right off the bat, I was in love with the art. It's perfectly dark and gritty, but not at the expense of being easy to understand.

Milligan's run is 250 - 300. So you've got a solid 250 issues to read, plus an annual. Have fun.

As happened in the preview issues, the art is very good, one of the best this title had in the Rebirth era. But the story and the character characterization, in my opinion, are not going well. One thing that is really bothering me in this arc is that Nightwing is suing absolutely nothing of the arsenal/resources he has in his costume. The costume (that is bullet proof and impact resistant accordin more
