So Scott Snyder made an unreadable mess with the Dark Metal crap and they had to bring in Jurgens to clean it up. Got it. Over all this book was pretty good.

Generations: Forged #1

Dispersed through time by the villain Dominus, our ragtag team of generational heroes-featuring 1939 Batman, Kamandi, Superboy, Steel, Starfire, Sinestro, Booster Gold, and Dr. Light-must find a way to restore the timeline…and what they ultimately discover is something far, far greater.

I don't get how people get to claim that "Superman is in good hands" when this is the third story from PKJ when SUPERMAN IS BARELY IN IT. How can he be in good hands when he's not in the story? It looks like PKJ got a note from Bendis and he's applying the same system: doesn't care about Superman at all, he just tries to build other characters that maybe will pay off one day and he'll get the mone more

I’ll give action/Superman a few issues and then drop it, same goes for the whole infinite frontier line

Nihilist - Feb 23, 2021

Hard to compare a stand-alone elseworld future title with regular main continuity series. We'll see what happens. Odds of Johnson being worse than Bendis are pretty low. The worst thing that could happen is him directly continuing Bendis' plot and accept his retcons as well as changes people generally hate (like rapid aged Superboy), resulting in immediate cold shoulder from fans even though he himself would not be directly guilty of anything bad. Give the guy a chance and see what happens.

Politics are a very tough subject to write about. Not only because they're so complex, dirty and interconnected, but also because most people are completey ignorant about them and prefer easy answers to questions that can't be answered easily. Think of any big political crisis, and ask yourself is there a simple explanation to it. What caused Brexit? And the 2008 Great Recession? Or 9/11? Or both more

I think you give Russell too much credit as a writer. The book is just him writing the same tired/lame story he's told over and over previously. It's time to change the channel but he won't because it's what makes him feel that he's doing something important when in reality he's writing a comic book that should entertain rather than preach at people.

Nihilist - Feb 23, 2021

I don't feel it preaches AT people. It tries to make some simple points we already know and hold dear because they're universally good, like "have each others' backs". Problem here is how Russell simplifies very complex themes that would be better off explored in a super deep, mature way, like Moore used to do. He touches their surface, but that's about it.

Psycamorean - for the idea that "comic book publishers don't really regard digital sales the way they regard physical sales" - DC Comics is definitely driving its future issues based on digital distribution.

Psycamorean - Feb 18, 2021

Well, we know that digital sales are low, and didn't boost at all during the pandemic despite a renewed focus on it, and that DC has cut back on its digital distribution plans because of that. We know that digital sales can't compete with physical sales, and therefore, they're not looked at as the main source of the profits, but rather extra on top.

Superheroes took the place of mythological gods. They're the ones we tell stories about, not Thor, not Zeus, not Chernobog, not Ra. They're the ones that teach us the timeless lessons of doing what's right, of never giving up and always trying to improve and overcome what life throws at us, beating demons both external and internal.

The majority of the book is filler. I wouldn't classify it as a Superman comic at all.

I wouldn't go as far as calling it straight up filler, but I feel you. Indeed the Earth cult plot lacks any real plot, and is used to offer us a personal anchor point to unravel the article paralleling Superman's fight.

There's a trend going around on Tik Tok that asks, "what seems like a cult but isn't..." That's all I could think about while reading the Superman story in this.
