I'm really enjoying this miniseries. Darwyn Cooke is really one of the best talents out there for this kind of old-fashioned yet incredibly dark story both in terms of writing and art.

This is very exciting. I'm glad they finally got this off the ground. We could always use more fun, funny all-ages comics.

Also, that gap-toothed Bane makes me smile. Like a cartoon baby whale.

My God, this issue has 17 variant covers?! Show some restraint, Marvel! Sheesh!

@sweatboy: He doesn't usually have the silly Wolverine outfit.

So... he took a bad story and somehow managed to make it worse? That is... impressive.

Hopefully, we'll get to see Aunt May slap the bejeezus out of Captain America again.

Nowadays, I have a hard time taking any comic book wedding seriously when both of the big publishers have gone out of their way on multiple occasions to explicitly express their belief that being married makes characters old, boring, and unrelatable, and that it's completely impossible to write compelling stories with married characters.

I have to agree with @Icon here. It's not very fair to knock a book for not being (and clearly not trying to be) something else that you could potentially want more. Would I really like Marcus To to be drawing Teen Titans? Very much so, but I'm not going to mark down an issue of Batwing because he's drawing that instead of Teen Titans. I know that's not the same situation, but it's not much more unreasonable than saying "Hey, a fun all-ages Superman book is cool and all, but you know what would be better? Batman!"

Also, judging by how they referenced a whole bunch of goofy stuff from past Superman media in the book (super-pets, the Clark Kent wink from the Max Fleischer cartoons, silly Silver-Age/Superfriends-era "mad scientist" Lex Luthor), you know that a light-hearted, all-ages Batman Family Adventures book would be throwing a whole bunch of references to the '60s Adam West show and the Schumacher films. Now, I think that'd be fantastic, but are a lot of people, who like their Batman to be a darker, more serious character, going to think those jokes are as amazing? And didn't they already do a bunch of that in "The Brave and the Bold?"

Superman and his "family" of characters are a good fit for a Baltazar & Franco book, and they are clearly having fun with them. Give them a chance to find their groove before you knock the book for not having a gigantic cast of characters and that it's not yet another Batman book. God knows we've enough of those to fill our gullets at the moment.

Hearing Nolan North voicing Superboy in this show will never cease to weird me out. Not that he's bad at it; Nolan North is always good, but he just clearly sounds like Nolan North. On another note, Danica McKellar continues to be pretty great as Miss Martian.
