Anyone who calls inkwash and watercolors something new to comics clearly needs to get themselves out of the tiny box they've locked themselves into.

I wonder if they'll ever make an all male superhero team. Probably not, that would be sexist. -__-

That's a stupid thing to say, dude. Seriously.

Anyway, since when did Poison Ivy become a heroine? Is this another retcon? Does that mean she was never a villain?

Wow, these are some good artists if they can make a glowing purple woman blend into the background so easily that I need someone to point her out to me.

I don't see it lasting.

And no, I don't see anything related to the superhero genre being positive for the industry. It can be good for the superhero genre, sure. But that only means it'll serve as a detriment to the medium itself, because it does nothing but continue the 50 year old public perception of the word "comic book" referring to the superhero genre, which has done nothing but hurt comic books as a whole for a very long time.

I LOVED the subtle references throughout to the original Action Comics #1.

The preview alone is what made me want to pick up the story in the first place, but at the end, I'm not sure what to make of it, but I will stay tuned for as long as Morrison is in control.
 
And I love the goofy costume because of it's goofiness. It's better than the stupid armor he's gonna be wearing soon.

@elayem98: Wait, so who did I mistake him with?

Now Scott Snyder is an artist I do not like from the get go.
 
He's professional, no doubt. But he's such an obvious Image alumni. And I don't like artists like Todd McFarland and Jim Lee, regardless of how skilled they may be.
 
I don't like the way they go about texture. I just don't like their styles, period.
 
That said I LOVE his analysis on the characters.

Ok, I want Morrison to finish what he was doing, but this actually looks like at least a disposable but enjoyable read. it doesn't look like anything special by any means, but it looks like quick fun to get my Batman vs Joker fix.
 
Anyone else get the feeling that this might be trying to be in line with the way the Dark Knight ended? I don't know. It makes sense. If it's supposed to get new readers, those readers most likely watched the Dark Knight. EVERYONE did.

@Jodin20723: Anyone who complains about superheroes, ESPECIALLY DC heroes like Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman; being unrelatable are completely missing the point of the characters.

I can honestly see him like a westernized version of Goku from Dragonball now.
You're kidding, right?
