Hi there, Egon244. Arslan here, Hope you are doing well today. There is a question that I'm interested to ask your opinion regarding Two old Superman stories from the pre-crisis Era of DC. Please let me know if you are interested.

It's a good story and I think it does still holds up today. I especially enjoyed the scenes with Mongul and Moore really sold the subsequent anger of Superman, after he woke up. For the negatives, I'd say that the jumps between reality and dream Krypton were a little bit jarring at times and the epilogue were everyone, especially Superman, were suddenly, miraculously ok was a bit odd. But it's the first pre-crisis story I ever read, so maybe it was a thing back then.

egon244 - Nov 30, 2019

As I said, it's a good story, nothing groundbreaking but definitely worth checking out. If I were to use the rating system of this site I would give it 7,5/10. Oh, I haven't mentioned Gibbons' art. Well, it looks great. That part definitely still holds up today.

You know what pisses me off? The sheer fact we've got two meaningless comics intended to set up this series, but Bendis did nothing to really lay down any foundation that would prepare us, readers, for what's to come.
It's a messy issue, and I expected it to be messy, considering how many characters is going to be featured in the series. I remember feeling the same back when I was first watch more

As always, you should come to your own opinion, but the Legion is not up to much.

It’s trash-tier writing, might as well say this Legion’s flight rings malfunctioned and never took off.

THE GOOD:

-Gary Frank is such a wonderful artist. I need some of these panels hanging in my room.

-I really like the storytelling here. It can feel a bit staccato at once, especially with the dialogue voiceovers constantly changing, but it keeps an otherwise boring issue interesting.

-Lex Luthor was perfectly written here.

I ask this because Zach Synder's Man of steel tries to build a modern deconstructive take on Superman. But, for some reason it comes across seriously off. Note: Sorry for the delay response, kinda been occupied with other stuff.

ohhaimark - Oct 13, 2019

Hey, no problem. Yeah, I agree about Man of Steel. I actually enjoy the film, but that's purely subjective. I'm not like one of those crazy Snyder fanboys who thinks everything he does is a work of art. The film just entertained me, despite all its flaws.

Didn't really like anything about this issue. Damian is written overly sappy and out of character. The reunion was too short, and just reminded me of the decision to end super sons too much. I also didn't like the art, it looked a lot like manga/anime, which is fine for some people, but I'm not really a fan of it.

I don't think that bendis is a bad/incompetent writer. But, I think it's safe to say, he the under the weather these days. As some his work is quite good. The Example being ultimate Spiderman run from the 2000's. I think he works best with street level heroes. If, I were working at DC, I would suggest the editor team to give him a comic run regarding street-level heroes like The Question or green arrow in an out-of-continuity story. And, let him be creative or crazy on it.

Nihilist - Oct 3, 2019

I don't find him a bad/incompetent writer either. Maybe an unfitting for certain series he's chosen to write, and most definitely one that should be kept in control by the editorial, which doesn't happen. Not sure about Question, since he's a Z-list character. Maybe he'd be a good pick, but Bendis seems to be in this tough spot where he has name recognition and respect, so DC can't say "no" to him, but at the same time writes shit these days. Kinda like Miller, Azzarello or King.

speaking for myself, a mild DC enthusiast, an absolute Batman fanatic, i'm pretty disgusted by the current state of DC comics. Tom King has been trashing Batman since 2016. and now Bendis has all but ruined all the good things Dan Jurgens and Peter Tomasi had done for Superman. i'm so far beyond caring anymore that i haven't bothered with any of their events, Year of the Villain, DCeased or Leviathan. just not going to waste the money or time.

I believe so, it really shows in the last issue. It reeks of editorial meddling, completely rushed with nearly every story getting an unsatisfying ending and quickly rushed up, Black Adam gets punched by Superman, Saturn Girl gets erased, Batman just stops the nuke out of nowhere. The pacing of the story was relatively normal until that last issue; issue 10 was probably the best issue DC has put out in years, which was right before 11, the rushed one. And it shows a lot

... etc. That's something core DC fans aren't interested in, from what I've seen so far. Can't say they are disappointed, they're just not the target audience for these releases. I also forgot to mention about quality drop related to some long running series, like Deathstroke, which was one of Rebirth's biggest highlights, and now is somewhat mediocre. That's a natural state - it's impossible to keep the original quality forever. Then again, combined with poor reception of Batman, Superman...

Nihilist - Sep 25, 2019

... Utter disasters in form of Heroes in Crisis or Batman #50, and failed experiment New Age of Heroes was, I think fan disappointment is growing over time. There's still plenty of great series to read, but overall we can observe DC is struggling more and more.

No, I wasn't underwhelmed. At first, I was half-expecting some big fight between Diana and Adam, but what I got was satisfying just the same. Seeing how Luthor was piecing all of it together and learning just how crazy Ozzy is was really good. And it all set the perfect stage for the finale. I never felt the book had pacing problems, its release schedule, sure, but the book itself, no. It's very story-driven and it takes its time telling it, but I was never bored.

Hi there, Nice overall review. But, I was scrolling down the following comic reviews and I've noticed that some are quite underwhelmed by this issue of Doomsday clock. Some of them suggest that the story itself was largely an info-dump, and revealed some of the pacing problems. So, I'm curious to ask, Do you find some the problems as well or maybe you see it differently?
