Didn't we just have this with spider-island? Or is this Ultimate spider-island? More Spider-clones?

If Bendis is involved I'll give it a chance.

Not a fan of Watchmen nor do I buy comics based on their creative teams. Pass.

Why not buy a comic based on it's creative team?

The character is just that. A character. They have nothin' to do with the quality of the comic. That's down to the creative team. If you want comics you'll enjoy buy the creators you like.

I learned this lesson myself after year of blind loyalty to characters who often disappointed.

Also, why even bother readin' this article if you're not a Watchmen fan? Just to post negativity?

I don't like the idea of more Watchmen. I like the original and think it stands well on it's own. These do look promising though. Not sure about Jae Lee on Ozymandias though. His work never appealed to me and I think his style would probavbly be more suited to Rorschach.

If a character doesn't interest me, I'm not picking up the series. Period. The main reason anyone picked up a comic book in the first place is because of a character they found interesting. I've just never been the type of comic fan who follows around writers and creative teams. Prime example, I'm a fan of Gail Simone but I will not touch Fury of Firestorm. I've never found the character interesting in the slightest. If a series that interests me ends up being mediocre or bad like Static and Blue Beetle, I'll drop it. Lord knows I had to do this with quite a few New52 titles unfortunately.

You seem way too personally invested in my opinion. And it's funny because I've seen worst responses to this very topic on other message boards. Chill out man.

lol

Not personally invested at all really. Not even a huge Watchmen fan but it is a good read.

Just seems odd to me someone would even read an article about something they're not a fan of and then go on to comment nothin' particularly constructive. See a lot of that online though so nothin' new there.

@chalkshark: the words of a true fan :)

Lovin' Johns work on Aquaman right now but that interview reads like he's the first writer ever to work on the character.

I kinda think morrisons Batman run was written by a crazy person. i'd have prefered some decent crime stories rather than rehashes of crazy silver age nonsense that was written out of continuity because it was crazy and an urban vigilante lost in time.

You're entitled to your articulately expressed opinion though :P

Agreed.

Except I fully support the return of the Silver Age Huntress. Of course that wasn't Morrison's doing.

Silver age Huntress is just a silver age character though. She doesn't have any of the silver age craziness I'm talkin' about. The Batman of Zur en raar, The hero club or whatever it was called. One issue of Morrison's run even had an alien living dumper truck or something as a prisoner in the tower of londons super prison. It's like some wacky elseworlds or something.

@InnerVenom123: I'd prefer mystery stories where you actually get rewarded(like Morrisons stuff).

Morrisons stories aren't mystery stories. They're mysterious stories. They're not suited to Batman is all I'm sayin' here. I've enjoyed Morrison i nthe past and probably will again but he's not a crime writer and Batman works best with an element of crime. Down to earth, grounded crime. Not a supervillain casting a superhero adrift in the timestream.

@Gylan Thomas:

Morrisson's work is excellent, but I'm not sad if he's done with Batman. I think what we've seen in the last 10 years is that to keep characters fresh and evolving, you have to rotate the creative team, including the writer. I like Morrisson's head-trip, gotta read it twice sometimes stories.... but it doesnt need to go on forever. Batman Inc is surprisingly better than it sounds.

Snyder is killing it now though with a great style.

Finch and Daniel though... meh.

I don't dislike Morrison. I just don't think he was writing a Batman story. Any other Superhero and it would've worked much better for me. Batman needs to be more grounded though.

I hope he takes Batman Inc with him. >:(

Wooohoo! :D

I can not express how happy this makes me as a Batfan. Morrisons Batwork put me right off the character.

I do like Morrison but don't enjoy his work on the big characters. He's just too far out. i'm enjoying the current Batman and Batman and Robin series far more than I ever could've Morrisons run.

Pleased to see most posters here seem to agree with me too :D
