Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Oh, I tried to post earlier, but it ate it:

Point 1: Krypto is a God damned abomination.

Point 2: Grant Morrison is going to do a Golden Age/Marstonesque take on Wonder Woman in 2012. I am cautiously optimistic. I hope it's the Morrison of old--the Morrison of Invisibles, of The Filth, of the New X-Men, of JLA--and not the Morrison of Batman, Final Crisis, and Action Comics. I've hated to see him go from the second best writer in comics (for all his bluster, he was never going to overtake Alan Moore, not on his best day) to basically a very competent one.

But we can rest assured: it's Grant Morrison, so it'll be fine. The question is, whether it can do more than that and justify his pretentions. (And I'm not just making a blanket statement. In the statement I read, he was very pretentious. "Immersing [himself] in feminist theory." Fine and good. Maybe he'll be able to write more than two woman character types now.)
