I've not been reading it but "The Flash" would be one of the success stories of an artist making the transition to writing wouldn't it?

It's well written. Better than some by guys who are just writers.

Yeah, I've been really enjoying The Flash. I'm still not convinced that it was necessary to make the Rogues into meta-humans, but the book has still been fairly strong.

Oh, there are lots of success stories, people like John Byrne, Walt Simonson, Frank Miller, Brian Bendis, Matt Fraction... but not everyone has the skills.

I love Batman and Batman & Robin (well that second arc was a little weak). Detective is completely uninteresting and I don't even like the art. I'm getting Dark Knight purely for the art, the story is crap.

I haven't read much of The Flash, but I really don't care about this new book. Again, I'm pretty much getting it for the art. I did enjoy Flash Rebirth and the 12 issue series after that.

The art in "Flash" is really fantastic. The story is "meh" so far. I'm not even sure I've a good "grasp" on what the story is (and aren't there still people stuck in the "Speed Force Zone or Whatever) and I don't even think we've seen that much of The Flash in his civilian identity either.

In the 52'Verse Lois and Clark are "never likely to date".

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

As much as I'm intrigued about Diana and Clark and the ramifications of their relationship will have upon the entire 52'Verse, I can't help but think that one of the reasons why Lois and Clark was dissolved so that this would happen. Remember in the news thread we had it was pretty heavily discussed as probably the biggest rumour at the time. Now they're doing it...it's going to be interesting. I don't like how they've treated Lois and Clark though. Kind of reminds me of how Marvel treated MJ and Peter.

I doubt very much that Clark & Lois will never date again. Sure they might not have any plans for it to happen in the near future, but I have no doubt that either they will change their minds eventually, or one of the next writers for JL will get them together. It's been such a huge part of the mythology for so long that I find it very hard to believe it will never happen again.

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

yeah, i have no faith in their statement either. they will date again some day...just not in the foreseeable future. and when they do date DC will make a big deal out of it.

I for one am happy they wont date anytime soon. Its been played out for decades now and time for something new and relatively untried. Let see what kind of fun we can have in the Fortress of Love.

Lois and Clark are "THE" comic book relationship. To suggest that they'll never date or that there'll never be an attraction or flirtations and such there is just stupid. It may not be planned now because they want to this decades old fan-service of having Supes and WW together but sooner or later Lois and Clark will be an "item" in some fashion again.

I mean, it's Lois Lane and Clark Kent! There's no other couple in the history of fiction more destined to always be together no matter what.

Does that mean she is attracted to Superman, but not to Clark?
