June 14, 2013 9:31 am Pleasantly surprised that Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez is still working. Love his stuff. Lois's skirt is scandalously short, though!
June 13, 2013 11:21 am His little corner of 52 was pretty amazing, but difficult to suggest for this article I guess, since there's no way to parse out just his story. But yeah. 52.
June 11, 2013 1:14 pm He is a good character, but I think the same argument that's brought to bear against classic (versus Ultimate) Nick Fury is applicable to Hal. He's just not as relevant as he was. In 1960, if Chuck Yeager walked into a room he was the coolest guy you'd ever meet. In 2013, he's an old man with an eye-rollingly young wife and some good stories. I know, I met him. Maybe if something changed in the real world, like a manned Mars mission or something like that, that really rejuvenated space exploration or aeronautic development. But as it stands I think John Stewart has more potential as a reflection of the society at large.

June 11, 2013 12:40 pm Why? The cult of Hal has always puzzled me. He's a hero of a bygone era when kids actually cared about test pilots and the promising and exciting future of jets and rockets and what not. It's not the '60s anymore.
June 11, 2013 12:01 pm It could be pretty awesome showing the Flash moving at normal speed with everyone else around him nearly at a stand-still.
June 11, 2013 9:38 am Love the Teen Titans and Justice League ideas, but I think we need more lead up to those. Give us the Flash and Martian Manhunter movies. I feel like Flash is vital to building a set of heroes for the Titans to emulate. Superman is great, but Superman *and* Flash *and* GL *and* Wonder Woman? That's inspiring.
June 10, 2013 1:33 pm Oh I guess he wrote TT longer than I was thinking. I don't think I read it for more than a year, though.
June 10, 2013 1:31 pm She-Hulk! Identify Crisis. I read District X later and it was pretty good. I recall reading Johns's Teen Titans, but I know I left when he did, or shortly before. That issue might have been the last I read.
June 10, 2013 12:33 pm heh, I graduated a while back. But I took, if I recall, an Epic Science Fiction and Fantasy course, Contemporary American Writing and Film course, and I know some others. (It's always classes that don't really count much toward your degree even though they're totally English courses and maybe this is why I took a leisurely 7 years to graduate.) As with any way-too-close analysis of a medium or genre, it both hurts and helps. It all depends on how much you let the philosophy of a work interfere with your own philosophies and enjoyment thereof.
