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

The thing is, Damian isn't just Morrison's any more. He's been around for years, has been written by multiple people, and has become a seriously popular character with fans. It is incredibly difficult to introduce a new character in comics and have them be almost universally accepted, and be good enough to stick around. If this is the end for him, then I feel like it's a waste.

Yeah that's the biggest reason why I'm nervous haha. I don't want him to go yet...especially after he's made so much progression (depending on who has written him) and changed a lot of fans minds! He still obviously has his detractors and haters but not as many.

Maybe fandom's dreams will be answered he'll be replaced by Stephanie Brown.

If only Some have speculated that perhaps Harper Row was created to be the "new" Stephanie Brown and that's why editorial refuses to use her. *Shrugs*.

Ha, I think that unlikely. Evidence seems to point to Harper Row being his replacement if he does indeed meet his demise.

I'm looking forward to seeing her in next month's Batman #18. I've been enjoying her character so far.

I've said before that Morrison's writing style is ill suited to a monthly publication format. The nature of comics being what they are, I should not have to go back and re-read the entire run to remember the tiniest minutia that he's touched on. A good comic can tell a lengthy story, but with Morrison's I come in every month thinking I've skipped an issue, or not remembering at all just what the heck was going on, and the issue does nothing to jog my memory. I do not have this problem with any other title that I read.
Thank God I'm not the only one. Reading his runs makes me feel like I am reading William S Burroughs.

That said, I like to go back and read from the beginning and it makes more sense.

I just wish to hell he would respect the continuity of other books in the DC universe--I still have not forgiven DC for the Countdown/Final Crisis fiasco.

So, you're saying heroin would help?

i enjoy Morrison's Action Comics, but the storytelling has been very fractured. it jumps around so much that it is hard to remember certain plot points. the only Morrison story that i read and didn't care for was Final Crisis.

As confusing as it is, I enjoy Morrison books... except for Final Crisis. That was a mess. If it'd been it's own little Elseworlds story it would be okay, but not as the big summer tentpole crossover they spent a year building up to.

I wonder if anyone has ever said that, "I got into heroin so I could understand comic books."

Okay, I just read all the Hell on Earth issues! Ugh, there was a single issue that hadn't come out yet! This is definitely the best non-Morrison New 52 Superman story. I actually care about the story. I love that it's one huge story involving Superman AND Superboy AND Supergirl AND the Justice League!

H'El on Earth ends next week with Superman. I agree though this has been a great story (and a lot easier to follow and more coherent than want Morrison's been doing in Action for the last few months) with a great use of Supergirl and Superboy. (I actually find him to be an interesting character!)

I'm only missing one issue of Superboy in the arc and all of my LCS's are out of it so I had to resort to buying an issue off eBay in order to get it. (Wasn't much more than cover price, plus shipping.)

Along the same lines, I liked the use of the JL in the Throne of Atlantis storyline in Aquaman/Justice League. Almost to the point where I may continue to follow Justice League.

I like Morrison's storytelling. The fact that you get a lot out of going back and rereading gives you more bang for your buck.
