It's really really unfortunate that Paul Cornell is off the book.

#4 was when it really hit its stride.



Sigh.

As for Animal Man/Swamp Thing, they are really developing the mythology between the Red/Green/Rot. I like they show how all the Arcanes even Abby is tied with the Dark/Rot/Other like Alec and Maxine are inherently tied with their elements.

Action was good again this month. Liked the Steel appearance. What's powering Corben, not Kryptonite?

I don't think it's Kryptonite...or if it is I don't think they've called it that. I'll have to go back and re-read to see if it's mentioned because I've already forgotten.

Damn...I didn't know Cornell is off Stormwatch already. I don't know that anyone else other than him would be able to handle such an ambitious book and make it good.

Clearly it's called meteor rock.

^ LOL. I'm dropping Justice League International. Not feeling it at all...it is the pacing of the arc that has bothered me more than anything else but also a non interesting villain as well. I had high hopes for this book and the team roster but it's just meh right now.

What What WHAT?!?!?

I was just at his blog today and didn't see anything about this.

Admiral Young, I still feel guilty for dropping JLI after the second issue. But it had to be done.

How many of the original 52 books have gone through creative changes already?

Is he leaving Stormwatch? I was under the impression that Paul Jenkins is writing a couple issues and then Cornell will be back.

Here is the story...and I had no idea that Purple Lady is supposed to be a focus on Stormwatch. She's not showed up yet. Also Paul Jenkins doesn't exactly thrill me as Cornell's replacement.

One can hope he's clearing his schedule to take the reins of Superman.

That would be a great trade-off. On a non nu52 note, I'm looking forward to Saucer Country. Should be Cornell at his best.

It's not clear yet when Kryptonite makes its first appearance - it's even possible that it's not until the present day, when Supergirl brings it with her somehow.

Or, better yet, "meteor sh-t".

Action #4 I really liked as it seemed, to me, like something was finally to start to happen a little bit. Interesting place to put a cliffhanger.

Yeah it can be confusing...Action Comics takes place even further back than Justice League which is "Five Years Ago". Morrison hasn't clarified exactly when Action takes place but I have assumed it's a couple of years or so before Justice League.
I can't find the interview, but I'm pretty sure "Action Comics" is supposed to be set only a few months/half a year before "Justice League" for their first arcs.
