I liked the book. And all the hate lobdell gets I'm sure is because to moaning tim drake fans and people who just jump on the band wagon.
Um no. have you actually taken a literature class or anything? Lobdell's writing is very bad. and whats bad about it is that usually it all feels like he has no direction for his stories. its clear that plot and dialogue is made up as he goes along. Moreso, every character is contrived. Clark comes off as a good hearted person but then he turns around is a complete douche to everyone as superman. it makes no sense.
