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

"Superman and the Legion of Superheroes" from Johns Action Comics run along with the Final Crisis tie-ins were the best stories Johns did. Levitz "best" work during his run over the last two years is probably the "Legion of Superheroes: Secret Origin" along with "Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes: The Early Years" opening arc from his pre-New 52 run (the only trade I own of his run) (even though I think there were still a couple of plot points he introduced that were never touched on again).


So I just read the preview for Action Comics #19 and noticed something that I didn't know before...this is still taking place in the past? Jon Carroll is introduced and Clark is still working for the Daily Planet. For some reason I just assumed that Diggle/Daniel would have taken their arc to the present. The artwork is gorgeous.

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

I was trapped in town a few weeks ago, I had 5 hours to kill, so a trundled into the public library and devoured 5 or 6 trade paperbacks, a lot of which were legion related stuff where I was comparing the Johns stuff to the Levitz, but here's the cool thing...

The night before I had read the (first)Crisis Cosmic Boy crossover by Levitz from 1986 where Cosmic boy is trapped in the present as everything is switching form silver age to postcrisis... It was weird seeing how Levitz had changed or stayed the same, but what was really weird was how quickly they managed to include the Challenger Accident into the story to as the pinacle landmark to tell cosmic boy that he was in an alternate timeline, spookily easily the 911 of the 20th century.

I like it.

It's a nice mix of the 80s Superhero costume and what we have come to expect over the last couple years.

I like it as well...along with the cape.

I flipped through Detective Comics #19...and thought it wasn't bad at all. It's much better than what Daniel's was doing before Layman. Not sure if I will be checking this out or not, but I did enjoy this issue with the Langstrom's and their New 52 origin I'm assuming. The stuff with Bane was interesting in one of the back up stories.

I also flipped through Action Comics #19 out of curiosity and actually was pleasantly surprised by it. I'm assuming that Daniel is responsible for writing out what Diggle had already wrote before he departed the book? Luthor's latest plan is interesting, as well as where is right now, interesting that he was only referred to as "Mister Luthor" and not "Doctor Luthor" by the psychologist, I also found that interesting that Lex hired someone to psychoanalyze him. The art is just simply gorgeous. Also I didn't see the "one year ago" header in the preview when I stated my previous comments regarding Lois and Jon. I might actually continue with this.

I'm mixed on the cape. I get it from a stage production as part of her profession, the theatrics of it.
They may find a way to work it in as useful in her heroics aspect as well.

Did i miss something?

Last week Lex was in a Super Jail cell, now he's wandering free... Oh? He's doing a Mad Thinker by transmitting his mind into a robot/clone to live out a normal life in tandem with his life sentence.

Have we "seen" moment where he transitions from heroindustrialistmessiah to puppykickingsupervillian yet or is that still some where in the inbetween times?

How sad. My biggest exposure to his work was actually on Marvel's Star Wars comics. He was the regular artist from issue 11 till 37, with a few few issues after that.

I think this issue takes place before the events in the previous arc. Which, yeah, doesn't make a lot of sense, but, comic books.
