So, as I'm sure all of us know, there's this guy named Scott Lobdell out there writing a handful of New52 titles, and in my humble opinion, he and all of his books have been complete and utter garbage since he's put his pen to the paper. I'm not too familiar with his works before New52 but I have read enough of his titles recently to know he's probably one of the worst in the business.
I'm not sure where to begin... The turning of Starfire from a beloved and powerful female character to a sex toy for Rocafort to draw in all sorts of overly sexualized poses while acting downright unintelligent. Or maybe the destruction and de-personalization of the BEST teen team. OR MAYBE we'll talk about how much of a tool Roy Harper has become, not to mention the sad excuse called Jason Todd now that we have. Lastly, his Superman... Oh god, his Superman. I'll skip over Superboy because he wasn't on that too too long, but I've got to say, I've never hated a Superman comic more than I do now.
I get this is a universe reboot and some characters are fairly young, but seriously... Superman doesn't act the way he's supposed to anymore. When I'm reading Lobdell's work, I can hardly recognize the guy and it makes me sick. I'm surprised he's been on the book so long considering he's butchering the character. Dialogue, morals and the overall element of Superman is gone and has been replaced by something I couldn't even describe in kind words. I mean, there's a point in time when Clark's contemplating between Lana, Lois and Diana!! I don't remember Superman thinking about which girl he wants to be with more or being a d*ck about women since his superdickery days!
Also, whats up with the omnipresent narrarator? I'm shocked that a guy like Lobdell has so many titles considering he writes like he's stuck in the 80s, with thought bubbles and a complete lack of cinematics. That, along with Rocaforts displeasing art (in my opinion) completely turns me off of titles that I'd love to read considering these are some of my favorite characters in all of comics.
I'm disheartened to see Teen Titans end, I'd really love if it didn't, but at least we don't have to deal with Lobdells bull anymore, and once he's off Superman, between Johns and Pak, we may just have Superman back in form.
As a side note, the reason I dislike Rocafort:
Bottom left corner... what is she doing? Do women EVER do that? Nope. I can't stand Rocaforts epic oversexualization of females, it looks really bad.
