Thoughts on the DCnU So Far?

Man new readers felt overwhelmed. Like "Why does Batman have a son?!" overwhelmed

So now that we're halfway through the DCnU's first month I've been reading some new reader reactions to the titles. It's certainly been a mixed bag and interesting to see them. One common thread I noticed was that almost all of the new readers wanted to get an Origin issue for the #1. As a longtime reader that's the total opposite of what I wanted. In fact, had that been the case I'd have likely dropped the books or at the very least hated every moment of reading the new stories. I do agree that going with a "soft reboot" was a terrible idea, but all things considered DC's really in a tough place. I mean, is there any way to truly satisfy loyal, longtime readers while being totally accessible and appealing to new buyers?

Why David Tran Should be penciling Uncanny!!!

Because if Logan/Pete can be all over the place, why not?!
Could do without that helmet

Better than any Jubilee redesign in years, and the hoodie/shades are a nice nod to her classic look
This Shatterstar looks great
Deadpool? AoX Ben Riley? Me no know, but me likey!

Seriously frak a Greg Land, Pacheco's solid and can look good with proper inking/coloring. but this dude? I love what this guy's doing! He needs a job illustrating something I love as much and is as important as Uncanny X-Men!
