Also, Fairchild? Why? I bought like two issues of Gen13 so maybe I'm just ignorant. Anyway, Freefall was hotter.
I dunno - I only read a few issues myself, and thought she was adorable. She's a kind of withdrawn science nerd who evolves in like three seconds into a super-powered stripper and starts ordering all the dimmer bulbs around.

Redhead, too.

So poor Krypto wasn't a sufficient sacrifice?

I don't understand the recent "Save Krypto" thing that seems to be going around. Yeah, I love Krypto, but this isn't the first time that he "didn't survive" Krypton in the comics. The Byrne/Wolfman reboot in the '80s eliminated Krypto as well.

He eventually came back. Just like he will again down the line.

George Perez, while a fine human being and with some competent projects in the past, has never been considered a writer of particularly great note.
People who read the first few years of the Post-Crisis Wonder Woman would beg to differ.

Comics readers of that era are all so old and toothless that their opinions are as nearly worthless as their memories...

...uh, fuck. Was I going to post something? I've lost my train of thought.

Lindeloff isn't a good comics writers.
He's written comics before?
I never read it, so I don't know if it's any good, but he did write an Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk series a couple years ago.

It was quite fun but the almost 2 year long break between issues killed the mood.

George wasn't writing straight out of the gate with postcrisis Wonder Woman. It was a fellah called Greg Potter. They probably collaborated and then George thought he was ready for the book on his own when Potter wanted to head off.

I don't understand the Save Krypto thing either and I'm a fan. He'll be eventually and it's not like he didn't exist entirely. I kind of like that he was Jor-El's dog.

We might not be seeing Krypto soon, but there's no way hat we are not going to see a dozen bizarro Kryptos attacking Superman on Luthors orders some time in the next 6 months.

I wonder if they could have killed him off if his cartoon was still running?

Of course, this is Morrison we are talking about.

Meh, didn't look a thing like him.

Krytonians look exactly like human beings. Their dogs look like little pigs in Klingon drag.

^Hmm...maybe I should check out Action Comics #2. I was in my LCS earlier tonight and noticed they still had a large stack of them sitting on the shelves.

Perez co-wrote the first two issues with Potter. Potter then left (either by choice, or by force - sources vary), and Perez took full control with scripts being done by Len Wein.

It's a $4, 20 story page ripoff. Punish them for their temerity. Punish them for me.
