So like all the way back to the late 40's or so?

You mean back when he had that speaking tick where he had to say "tactile telekinesis" every other sentence?

That damn tick was worse than Cannonball's "invulnerable when I'm blastin" problem.

Like some weird form of tourettes syndrome.

That's still in continuity post new 52. Clark did have adventures with the Legion when he was a boy, and in the present interacts with their adult selves as well.

I think it's called Claremont's Syndrome.

Finished reading Batman #19 and thought it was really good. Capullo's artwork as well was spectacular as usual. I think this is the "Batman Animated Series" two parter homage that Snyder teased at Wonder Con. The Batman/Superman back up story from Tynion IV and Alex Maleev was awesome as well.

I gave up on Aquaman because I want to be selective about what I read, but I found it to be one of the best written titles if not the best. The Throne of Atlantis arc looked good, but I stopped before that because I didn't want to get sucked in and have to commit to several more months and issues. And yeah, it crossed over to other titles. That I don't like.
I so get this. I've liked Aquaman but dropped it right as the Throne of Atlantis arc started because I didn't want to get completely hooked. I also didn't like the crossover with the more expensive Justice League books either.

That being said, I've enjoyed the run on Aquaman thus far and would like to read the trades on down the line.

I read all of Firestorm the Nuclear Men the other day because in the 80s that was my go-to book.

There was some nice stuff with spies and secret empires and corporations, but over all, it's a little bit shit.

I'd like this title cancelled.

Although it was funny looking at the advertising month after month (20 minutes after 20 minutes?) demanding that I buy Blue Beetle because it's the best book ever... RIP.

And seriously.

You're Firestorm, home to Felicity Smoak, who is on TV... USE HER!

It's just bad.

The Justice league International turned up briefly... RIP.

Advise your enemies to read this book because its awful.

It's a shame. All three titles you mentioned had so much potential.

Read Action #19. Judging by this issue, I would've gladly stayed on for Andy Diggle. Aside from some of Morrison's issues, I haven't enjoyed reading a Superman book this much since the New 52. The scene with Lois and Clark at the beginning was great, Luthor's scene with the therapist was brilliantly creepy, and the actual plot was also quite intriguing. And to think Diggle would've given us a whole run, but thanks to editorial, he's already gone.

On that note, I still haven't figured out if Diggle is the writer of the following two issues, or if someone else will conclude the arc. I'd like to know if I can cancel my subscription now or if there's still two issues of Diggle's work to look forward to. Anybody know?!

I believe that the next two issues are scripted to Diggle's plot.
