Cool interview. I might pick Superman up if it continues to be good.

Character driven stories ftw

I've never seen a Klaus Janson interview, he's great. Would love to see a one-on-one interview with him.

The art is awful and the story has been lackluster IMO. I hope this isn't an extended stay on Superman.

what really? I am not a fan of Suprman at all. Everything I read from him I found boring, but this is the first time I'm actually loving reading Superman.

It's just a personal taste issue. My preference is unique to me and the same goes for everyone. I'm glad others are enjoying it. I'm more inclined to enjoy Pak's Action Comics than this.

Finally a creative team on a Superman run that I can really get behind. Since Unchained is only a limited series, I was worried about where Superman would go after Snyder's miniseries finished. Thankfully, Johns' return to The Man of Steel has restored and revitalised the Superman universe. And this interview has all the right things. From making the story more character driven to contrasting Superman and Clark Kent's identity to bringing back The Daily Planet supporting cast and introducing Ulysses to the title, this has felt like a classic yet fresh Superman title. Not since Grant Morrison's run has a writer at the current DC staff captured Superman and his universe so well.

Granted, the art could be better and Romita Jr isn't at his best but the story more than makes up for it. I'm glad Johns is on board and hope he stays for a long time.

YOUR OPINION IS WRONG!

@madeinbangladesh: he no like Geoff Johns, but you should really check out Pak's Action Comics 25-29. Trust me, you'll love it.

#18 Posted by Superguy1591 (3370 posts) - - Show Bio

I love Pak's Action Comics because it makes Superman more human and relatable, he has flaws and he's easily embarrassed. He make me think of myself, if I was superpowered, and how I would goof up a million times. I can't wait for Doom to end so that we can get back to Clark being the focus and not Doomsday.

I like Geoff's Superman because Geoff came at the story with a sense of intrigue imbedded in it to keep us captivated. Bringing back the Planet was also good, but he's gotta find a way to make them interesting. I like how he's writing Perry as Clark's Alfred, but Jimmy, Lois, Steve, Ron and the new black lady need to be used well.

Someone said to use the Daily Planet like the TV show Newsroom and I agree. The Daily Planet should be used to incorporate current events into the book, but they need to be used better.

Great run so far. I really hope they deliver.

Two issues in and I'm definitely enjoying it!

#22 Posted by JoshuaDBr (405 posts) - - Show Bio

I can see fear in Geoff Johns' face every time they start talking about the mysterious character. I'm pretty sure he doesn't want anything given away. And by the excitement John Romita shows, this is going to be very good!

The art hurts my eyes and not liking the whole Ulysses thing.

#24 Posted by Superguy1591 (3370 posts) - - Show Bio

@dernman: wow, Ulysses is a genius character.

Guess you can't please everyone.

How so? We've seen barely anything of him. What we do know is it's just another character that parallels Superman's origin that he can bond with. It's been done before. Just off the top of my head Ultraa's original origin. IIRC Even the last Earther being sent to another planet spin has been done before in Superman's stories.

#26 Edited by Superguy1591 (3370 posts) - - Show Bio

@dernman: Though he draws parallels with Superman, his origin is unique in its own right.

Like the mythical Ulysses from the Odyssey, this man is a man lost in the darkness looking for his way home to a world he no longer is sure exists. Then you add into it that he's Superman like and you have a great character.

Plus, the way he's giving Clark someone to relate to and feel one with makes cool character to me.

There really isn't anything unique about it. Plus It's pretty common in Superman's history for him to come across a character that parallels his origin, and/or being Superman like so he can relate. It's up there in the list of Superman's retreads. The first thought that crossed my mind was "this again?" and that's from someone who's very forgiving of retreading. It's made even worse when they're currently doing a story with Wraith over in unchained.

@dernman: too hard to explain the intrigue of the book. We'll just chuck it up to differing tastes.

"It's still John so yeah, you will see some things blowing up"

So is John Romita now the Michael Bay of comics?

I love what these guys are doing on Superman! Keep up the great work John, Klaus, and Geoff!

Agreed on all points. I'm really liking Ulysses and I hope he doesn't break bad or die, I'd kinda like him to be a regular part of the Superman Family.

Johns has said he'll become a supporting cast member of the Superman title for some time as someone for Superman to connect to so that's hopeful news that Ulysses will be sticking around for a while. Which is a good thing in my book.

So many news to catch up to.

Anyway it was an ok interview (that goes for every video featuring this team in SDCC not only this one) since they didn't reveal anything about the direction and the characters and they only repeated the same things they have already said.
