Just Action Comics #13 (three more issues until Morrison's departure) DC wise today.

I was only in for the first arc, but if I'd known that Morrison was going to wrap-up so quickly, I probably would've stuck to the end.

I'm assuming we will find out who will be following Morrison next weekend at NYCC...the rumours have been Andy Diggle for weeks now. If that happens to be the case, I'll probably still stick around. Oh and I think we're supposed to find out who the Little Man is pretty soon.

Garsh and sniffles. I would have thought no Krypto story could ever be as beautiful and wrenching as the one that followed the death of Connor Kent, but Morrison just gave it a decent shot. And Sholly Fisch might actually have pulled it off.

Good issue of Detective. Looks like we'll be seeing great things from both ongoings now.

i picked up Action 13 and Detective 13. Haven't read Action yet, but just got done with Detective. Wow, what an issue! By far the best issue of the Tec since the new52 began. I'm really looking forward to the rest of this run.

This is the first time since Paul Dini and Grant Morrison that we have had two strong writers on Batman and Detective.

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

I've been wondering lately if it's worth picking up the GLC: Fearsome trade. I know some bits related to the Third Army storyline but I'm not entirely sure if it's a segment or not.

Man, the backup story in Action Comics almost brought a tear to my eye.

I really enjoyed All-Star Western #0 and was a bit surprised to see TN landmarks used in the story. Those would be Fort Donelson and the Cumberland River for those who might've read it.

Thought Aquaman #0 was also good but it did end without being as much a complete story imo. Left avenues open to explore when we jump back into regular numbering like all the #0 issues it just felt less complete a story in and of itself.

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

Aquaman #0 was basically Arthur's origin story and it teases the origins of the current Who Sunk Atlantis story...that's probably why it might've felt incomplete (I disagree in this case).

Read "Action."

Really enjoyed it. Both the primary story and the secondary one.

... Did I miss where/when the FoS went from the BRAINIAC ship in orbit to being the crystalline fortress we all know and love in the arctic?

Welcome to the writing of Grant Morrison. If you don't feel like you missed an issue, then you weren't paying attention.

Action Comics #13 was probably the first time that I can say that I teared up during a Morrison written story. KRYPTO!!!
