I don’t think I said anything about blaming anyone. I also never said you should rate anything to shield creators. Those are simply straw man arguments because they don’t address the only point I made. What I said was, I think you should consider a new hobby if 2.1 is the average enjoyment you get out of it. It certainly can’t be fulfilling to read comics that you rate so low month after month.

Ultimate Goblin - Aug 14, 2022 (edited)

I'm not judging as well, but why not rate some old stuff you love or something like that as well as the new bad comics...

Thank you for the concern on how I spend my money, however completion of a run is important and I'm optimistic that things will improve eventually. Bendis at least understood the character of Superman and knew to keep stories short to appeal to a large audience. The formula is simple 3 stories that are 4 issues each that tie into a larger story arc to be resolved during the summer annual season. This is just banking on trade paperback sales. I understand their shift but I don't have to like it

Amazing Psycamorean - Aug 13, 2022

...I mean, have you been out of comics since the late 90s? Cause that's when the trade paperbacks really began to play a role in the construction of stories in the ongoing titles. Bendis' run had long arcs, but they were incoherent, which is why you thought it didn't.

This issue feels like the plot is really beginning to coalesce. After months of build up, the steps taken in this issue feel earned. I was critical of the early parts of PKJ's run, and I stand by that because this current arc sort of cements my problems with those early issues. Those issues tried to tell a higher concept story but without the methodical pacing of this arc. We were thrown into the more

Oh I buy read every single issue, that doesn't change the fact that the story arc has been going on for 15 months is complete edgelord crap. Hopefully things will get better post issue 1050

Amazing Psycamorean - Aug 13, 2022

I think the story is actually very hopeful in its themes. Sure, Warworld is edgy and dark, but the point of the story is that in the face of oppression, torture, genocide and death on a planet wide scale, with little to no recourse, Superman is still a symbol for hope and is still fighting to change things.

LOL This is the most hilarious issue I’ve ever read in years. So while in Superman’s tie-in he dreams that he could spend time with his son, John Stewart wants a world without anyone better than him, like the Trinity, and Hal Jordan. Thus he will be praised as the greatest hero the world’s ever seen, by his mother. What does the writer want to say? John Stewart is such a man of vanity? Or it more

Damn!! i was trying to stay away from spoilers of DC vs Vampires, but you pretty much just saved me the trouble of trade waiting a turd sandwich. --- from what you've said of Bruce and Dick Grayson's interaction in 'Tec 1062 it sounds like i might be better off avoiding this issue as well. I've noticed there is a recent resurgence of prominent subjects from Grant Morrison's Batman now with Williamson, Zdarsky, Ram V. --- so it's safe to assume that these are all just Editorial tampering.

Because he is supposed to be the world’s greatest detective. Sherlock Holmes, not Dirty Harry. I get that it is hard to write a really smart character, but that’s what Batman writers sign up for. A stupid thug Batman doesn’t interest me, but I could be wrong.

There are lots of stupid thug characters in comics, especially in sci-fi-based Marvel Comics. Almost every problem is solved with "super-powers" and knuckles. But that is NOT the Batman nor is it Bruce Wayne. Sad how many "comics fans" (and of course post-modern writers) have no idea who the character is.

The old frame-up plot is literally 100 years old in illustrated stories.
I can't even count the number of times it was done to Batman.
But Canadian writer Chip Zdarsky and some reviewers believe it is fresh, new, and innovative.
