The Mormons.

If God wasn't such a wussy he should have eaten the bullet and saved us from the tediousness that is Mormonism, but when has God ever sacrificed himself personally to save all of us?

Morrison is not so humble.

Morrison should take a page from Gods book and quit when he's ahead.
Guy! Where the hell did that rant come from?

As for Morrison--his first year on Action was pretty good, especially the first arc. I don't know where this more recent acid trek arc came from but it made less sense than Final Crisis. Once I am on vacation, I am going to sit down and read the first 18 issues from the beginning and see if I can understand them.

Morrison is awesome because thanks to his style of storytelling, I can experience the effects of psychadelic drugs without having to take said drugs myself.

Morrison needs a good editor, someone to tell him when he's gotten too far afield. Unfortunately, DC doesn't have any good editors any more.

Do you mean, did I lift it from somewhere else, or why did I say it?

"Type fucker type" is too much Chapelle, the rest is me, well they're both me, it's not like Chapelle has propriety rights on calling someone a fucker while cackling... Although I did see Jesus Christ Superstar recently even if the message there was wrong era buddy, and not stop sending prophets. My Muslim flatmate years ago confided in me that Mohammed assured the world that he was the very last prophet of god and if anyone else turned up claiming that they were a prophet of god, trying to reverse or distort his message, that they, his beloved devotees should resort to the usual recourse when lying flimmflamm men try to grift them.

Convenient, no?

But the rant was in response to this from the Seeker.

I enjoyed this single issue of Action Comics more than all the ones that preceded it. I know Morrison is a God to some but I am very happy his stint is over.
I watched Frequently Asked Questions about time travel last night where they flit about through time pruning the ancillary years off geniuses barely moments after the creation of the finest master piece to reduce brand degradation... You know, like killing Kevin Costner straight after he made Dances with Wolves.

So to make the world better, would you kill Morrison Now, Straight after his run on the JLA, straight after Doom patrol or straight after the Invisibles?

While I enjoyed his work on Batman, pre-New 52, I think the best choice would be after All-Star Superman ended. We'd lose his run on Batman and Robin, but the only real shame would be the loss of the first three issues. The rest were, meh.

After reading what Peter Tomasai thoughts about his plans for Carrie Kelly...I'm honestly excited to see what he's going to be doing with her in the book. At the very least another reason to read "Batman and Robin" again.

Finished up the first WW volume today.
My thoughts from Shelfari:
My Shelfari review wrote:
*****/*****
This was my first WW comic and I loved it. It had a great lead in Diana, she had a really cool group of characters around her, and Hera was a great villain. I'm a huge fan of ancient mythology, and I really liked this version of the Greek Gods. I loved the art, especially the designs for the Gods, they were very unique.

I feel robbed.

With what you say there, I thought Matt Wagner was producing a sequel to Trinity.

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

Jeff Lemaire co-writing Justice League of America has me intrigued to be honest, as well as writing "Justice League Dark" I'll be checking this out since it's DC first major event since Flashpoint, but I'm not expecting very much out of it. Looks like it will also be just contained in the Justice League books which is a good thing.

I've only been reading Justice League so far but I'll buy the crossover books so they'll get at least a short term sales boost out of me.

I gave up on Earth 2, but decided to pick up issues 10 and 11 because of the Dr. Fate arc. Now I have to go back and find #9.
