Like with the end of Catwoman #1 there was a colossal overreaction to Starfire lol. Red Hood has been okay but I'm not really feeling it. It is clear that Winnick loves writing Jason Todd and has chosen to make him the star of the book, as well he should, but I don't think he is doing a good job of integrating Kori and Roy. There's a lot we don't know about Roy yet or Kori but has only been teased so far while we're focusing on Jason. The art is pretty good though.
In the end, the "sexy teases" of the number ones was a smart business move that paid off for DC. People checked out the comics and then came back for issue two and now, it seems, three.

Indeed, I picked up Catwoman #1 out of curiosity of the titillation factor and actually ended up liking the comic as a whole and have stuck with it.

Trekker, according to Diamond TMNT #4 is not solicited(cause I'm getting it also). They do however finally have the first collected HC coming out, about 2 months later than first solicited.

Then I'm guessing TMNT #4 is next week? Because I don't think there's been a November book yet.

I picked up Red Hood and the Outlaws for the same reason. I wanted to see what all the hype was about. It wasn't for me though and I dropped the title, but picked up issue #3 yesterday after some of the comments here.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #3: The ending is indeed very poignant. It was a good read.

Green Lantern: Larfleeze Christmas Special: Another good read. Larfleeze worked pretty well as your typical curmudgeony/greedy/selfish protagonist who learns something of the spirit of Christmas. Loved that little comic strip at the end too. And the nicest surprise? Larfleeze's Orange Lantern Cookie recipe. Makes two dozen, or one serving. Christmas is now complete.

I finished "Red Son" and really enjoyed it, fantastic book. I sort of wish the ending had the rocketship crashing in a universe/timeline where it ends up in Kansas. Or perhaps, as Ike said in the first few pages "had the ship landed a few hours later it would've been in America", Brainiac or whatever power Luthor designed realized this and some how delayed Jor-El's launch and caused to happen in a manner to allow this.

But the pre-destination paradox was a great ending too, I just think having it end starting a "regular continuity" starting would've made for a nice way of showing that Superman's real goal was achieved.

It was interesting to mostly see Superman cast as something of a "bad guy" -with good intentions- and Luthor as more of a "good guy."

Fantastic book, really enjoyed it.

The way the story goes about the ending I believe is that Grant Morrison is the one who suggested it to Millar in the first place. He's made remarks about as recent as a few months ago when the topic of their fall out comes up. Someone else can correct me but I believe Grant has said he regretted not saving that ending for himself to use because that was one of his most favourite ideas.

Depending on the creative team, I'd be into a Red Son ongoing. That world could be explored at far greater length.

An on-going would certainly be interesting. The book itself spans fifty years or so, excluding of course the centuries or eons-long epilogue.

So there's quite a bit of stuff that could be done or shown in there.

I'd be up for a mini-series. I don't think an ongoing would work. Same thing as much as I'd want an ongoing for All Star Superman in that continuity...it would take away from the original I think. I think this is partly why we never got the spin offs or the Year One prequel that Grant wanted to do.

Kurt Busiek also used something similar for his Superman analogue in Astro City.

I agree that All-Star Superman wouldn`t work, mostly because I see it as an elegy that depends on the existence of an earlier career - it`s the end of a life, not an alternate take on a life that has a `canonical` version.
