Well I certainly hope they're doing better off two years in, but that's what all those departures in the first year were about. Editorial couldn't answer the writers' questions about what was in continuity or not anymore. And they would agree to storylines, only to change them at the last possible moment. Poor Rob Liefeld

Greg Pak is to be the new writer of Action Comics. We'll see how long he lasts.

Seriously, good for him. I loved his Marvel work, and if they weren't smart enough to give him a plum assignment, then I'm glad DC has given him one.
I'm looking forward to his Eternal Warrior book at VALIANT, this not so much. DCs revolving door of creators doesn't have me convinced he could adequately finish whatever plans he sets out.

Greg Pak seems to be one of their new go to guys. They gave him Batman/Superman right away which is I think supposed to be one of their new intended marquee book (the preview seems excellent btw) and now Action Comics, so unless something totally breaks down between him and editorial...I'd say he should have a nice long run. After all Scott Lobdell has actually stabilized "Superman" to the point where I'm reading it again, and I never thought I would lol.

I think Superman has been on a pretty good run for almost a year now.

Got Larfleeze #1. Can't wait to look at that.

Batman Superman #1 was intriguing, but I don't think Jae Lee's art fits a mainstream book like this. I thought Bruce Wayne sitting on a bench was a multi tentacled plant monster for the first several pages

So word is that DC will be publishing an ongoing Sinestro Corps title. This will be the sixth ongoing Lantern book at once alongside Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, Green Lantern New Guardians, Red Lanterns, and Larfleeze. Holy cow!

As much as I like Larfleeze in some of the arcs, I'm not really sure if I'm interested in picking up a solo title. Same might be true with the Sinestro Corps, but I'll keep an open mind.

I have reservations about Larfleeze in a solo title as well, but the fact that it is being written by Giffen ad Dematteis gives me a lot of hope. They're responsible for one of my favorite comic runs ever, in Justice League International. The first issue actually was pretty good. There's one moment in particular that made me laugh and cover my mouth in shock at the same time.

I feel that these other Corps are not interesting enough to sustain an ongoing series... I couldn't stand Red Lanterns...

Uh-Oh. This probably won't turn out so well.

Interesting, especially the part about the Crime Syndicate. I'm particularly looking forward to that book.

I'm wondering about that, since the Secret Society has been given the big push in JLA recently and assume will be a big part of Forever Evil. Will the CSA be showing up or is that a mistake? They've laid some ground work for that with Volthoom and Thomas Wayne, jr.
