You're absolutely right... but for what it's worth, it's an accurate depiction of the memorial as it originally appeared back in the Silver Age...

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

I thought both Aquaman #2 was very good and Superman #2 was a tremendous improvement over the first issue but the dialogue is still atrocious. I'm glad that General Lane doesn't seem to be a total ass hole towards Superman but is merely concerned about his presence from a purely national security standpoint. The previous continuities Lane always had a personal hatred towards Superman. The conversation between the two of them about Lois and his continued presence on Earth was very well done.

I have heard and read that the art is worth getting the book for.

Teen Titans is still the best story so far.

I would disagree with that big time, although I will say that Teen Titans does have an interesting story. The best stories so far are "Action Comics" and "Batman"

I don't like the change with Cassie at all. One thing that seems to have carried over from the previous continuity is Tim's attraction to her. The NoWhere story line carrying over from Superboy is the interesting part of Teen Titans. It is clear now why they have Lobdell on both books. My guess is that they will have some kind of big confrontation between Superboy and Red Robin when they eventually meet or Superboy and Wonder Girl.

The Dark Knight:

I'm really not digging this comic, the art isn't great and almost Liefeldian, most notably on splash panels featuring the characters who are often shown to be overly muscular, it's almost like everyone does a line of Venom before hitting the gym. Though I did like the use of the Batmobile and Batman's and Alfred's banter over the com.

Superman's self-titled book I really like with good artwork, internal narration from Superman and and so-far an interesting storyline.

Lol, no.

Batman > Action > Swamp Thing/Animal Man/Frankenstein > Wonder Woman

The "alien threat" is only serviceable, but other than that I'm loving most everything about the new Superman - especially the new Lois and Clark - except the prose. It's overwritten crap, virtually nothing other than the writer using narration and dialogue to tell the reader what's happening and make sure that absolutely no detail is left unresolved (as far as the writer is aware, of course). I mean, I'm not giving a fuck about how Superman cased the electronics store before he chased the monster in there. If I want to go all nerdy and need to make up some stuff about insurance and it being deserted I can do that for myself.

"Solitude can be such a lonely place" is probably intended to be kind of poignant and all, but its just self-evident and clumsy doggerel. Did Perez think there was some clever subtext in having Lois use that word unknowingly as Supes sits in his Fortress? Probably not, since he's evidently never met a bit of subtext that he didn't want to paint in fifty foot red letters on the side of a building.

Christ, I can so not wait until he's off this title as the writer.

Perez was probably not the best choice for the job.

I'm totally on board with the new costume design now, and I'd hate to see them retreat to anything like the original. The belt's the only thing about it that's maybe less than ideal; they could vary that and the boots a bit...and almost certainly will over time.

Yeah, the new suit/"battle armor" is pretty good. I don't much like Clark Kent's "Harry Potter glasses" but I do think that coupled with his tussled hair they do a good job of concealing his "true identity."

And I will agree the dialogue, internal monologues and such are all a bit heavy handed, but the artwork in the comic is pretty good.

(I would argue that if Superman couldn't see the monster with his own eyes, seeing it through the TV wouldn't be greatly different. Either way he's using his own eyes to look at the same object, the fact that one way is through a camera lens and a TV screen shouldn't matter.)

The only thing I don't like about the new costume is the high collar...the rest of it is okay.

I don't mind the collar/sleeves. The style of the belt and boots is pretty lame and looks dated already.
