I wonder if there's endless confusion, particularly for the few surviving comic book stores, over the similar named titles like "Fantastic Four" and "FF" and now "Justice League" and "Justice League of America"...
Yet not by the five million Avengers, X-Men, Batman and Superman titles?

BTW, for you Bat-fans out there, Kevin Smith has been interviewing comic book writers like Scott Snyder (Batman), Kyle Higgins (Nightwing), and Grant Morrison (Batman Inc) on his webcast, and they're extremely entertaining and informative! This entire series is devoted to Batman, mainly the comic book and 90s animated series variety. He's also done commentary tracks for classic episodes with the creators and of the new Dark Knight Returns movies. I love these things!

Good stuff. The Scott Snyder one was funny especially how he wanted to go to Disneyland Tokyo to play Prince Charming instead of Graduate School.

The Morrison one with Smith was fantastic...Grant's a fascinating man. I will have to listen to the Snyder one.

Geoff Johns should write Giant-Sized Swamp Thing.
He should write the Justice League movie, now that they're starting over with a new script. Base it on the first arc of his JL run and most of the work is already done.

The trouble with that is that they based "Green Lantern" on Johns excellent Secret Origin story and we all know how that turned out...not to mention that first Justice League arc was crap, thanks to Jim Lee's co-plotting. It probably would have been as good as the book is now had Johns just been able to write solo, and Lee just focusing on art.


Maybe something progressive coming out of the creative retreat this week...

The Green Lantern movie does not resemble Secret Origin in the slightest. I wish it had. That could have been an awesome movie. Also, basing the Justice League movie off of the wretched first arc of Johns's run is a terrible idea.

It didn't resemble Secret Origins because they meshed it with their original draft...but they did attempt to include stuff from it in the fillm, I forget what writer stated it, but they read it when it came out and were inspired by elements of it. Anyway. Yeah stay away from that Origins Arc.

Also apparently the same person who leaked Amazing Spider-Man #700 is at it again with Batman Incorporated #8...

The story beats and structure were fine. Fleshing it out along a different tangent wouldn't be hard at all. Swap out Darkseid with Brainiac and the parademons with an army of extraterrestrial machines.

What's wrong with Darkseid? It's just the way they went about it.

About the only thing the movie has in common with Secret Origin is that an alien named Abin Sur crash lands on Earth and gives Hal Jordan a ring. I think they're full of crap, just like the movie.

Has anyone read the Superman Hell on Earth crossover, and is it any good? I only read part one. Aside from Morrison's Action Comics, I really don't like anything they did with the Superman reboot...

I've really enjoyed the H'Ell on Earth books, I even picked up the Superboy books to get "more of the story."

Is it a literal crossover or are the Supergirl and Superboy books tie-ins to the main story?

I skipped over the H'ell arc. Not really interested in it.
