    That cover's actually not bad. I had very low expectations from 2 of my least favourite "superstsr" artists working in the biz right now (not including Liefeld).

    So is this going to be canon to the rest of the comics? I thought the Black Label stuff was all supposed to be non-canon.
    Pretty much everything I've heard about recent stuff Frank Miller has written has pretty much killed any interest I have in new stuff from him. He was great a long time ago, but it sounds like he's gone down hill a lot since his Batman: Year One and Daredevil days.

    Every origin story is canon until it's not. We'll get another definitive origin in a few years again.

    Sure, but I thought the whole point of the Black Label stuff was that it was non-canon so they had the freedom to do more drastic stuff.
    I'm a little afraid of the books having to use something Frank Miller wrote as the origin story for Superman.

    I just hope DC can convince Frank to not make Lois Lane, or maybe Lana Lang if its an origin story, into a prostitute. It took an entire DC event to delete Frank Miller turning Catwoman into a prostitute (although, to be fair, DC didn't make Zero Hour to do that specifically, it was just a benefit).

    You'd think after the shit that was Dark Knight Strikes Again, and the offensive shit that was All Star Batman and the (non DC, but fairly well known) Holy Terror that Miller would stop getting mainstream work. Then again, this is a company run by idiots like Bob Harras, so having a racist, misogynistic prick keep getting work because he was popular in the 80s checks out. Hell, DC has a history of keeping people they know are terrible employed (look up former DC editor Eddie Berganza to see what kind of people DC will employ)

    Yeah I think this is just alternate universe stuff. Set in the same universe as the Dark Knight Returns trilogy.

    Saw the Bat-a-wang in Batman: Damned maybe we'll see the Super-manhood in this?

    I remember loving Hitch back in the Ultimates days, but haven't been much of a fan of his Hawkman. Stiff character work and the helmet design hasn't quite grown on me yet.

    I'm looking forward to a new artist. It's the story that keeps bringing me back right now.

    Wow, that's almost a bit retro, look like something out of the '60s or '70s to me.
     
    N-121973 and Allyn Gibson like this.

    That Detective Comics 1000 was a massive disappointment. I was expecting a big, epic story. Not a series of boring mini ones. For a milestone, it felt very half arsed.

    Yeah, I as pretty disapointed as well. There were some okay stories but nothing particularly standout.
