March 31, 2017 2:02 pm Conor, I'm glad to hear you liked Armageddon 2001. The internet tries to tell me that it was not good, but I loved it. That said, I thought Flash Annual #4 was pretty weak, and I hate that it precedes Born to Run in this collection. I've been looking forward to handing this book to people and saying "THIS is why Wally is the best Flash and Mark Waid is his best writer," but I feel that including that annual so early in the book seriously waters down its impact on new readers.
March 26, 2017 12:44 pm Josh, thanks for having the guts to call out that Reborn is kind of dumb. Are people just star-struck by it, or what? Also: I'm not even sure why you mentioned it, but I was just thinking about Superman in A Death in the Family this morning!
October 22, 2016 7:31 pm Great interview, thanks.
August 21, 2016 10:53 pm I was also surprised to hear that, because I feel MORE connected to Superman than I have in a long time. I feel like the real Superman is back, and I don't really care what the state of the universe around him is (but, thankfully, it's also good).
May 29, 2016 7:57 pm For a minute there, I really thought Wally was going to die, and I had the thought "At least now we get a goodbye." But then he lived! And just when I was starting to like New Wally ... I guess I'm excited to go from zero Wally to two Wallies.
April 3, 2016 4:21 pm I don't think "Batman v Superman" has permanently ruined Superman for me, but I tried to calm my jangled nerves by reading "Birthright" and couldn't get through it. I couldn't even look at Jimmy Olsen without thinking of Zack Snyder's "fun" announcement. The "Rebirth" line-up might not be revolutionary, but it did my mental health a world of good to see Dan DiDio admit to his mistakes. I only hope he passes what he's learned onto David Goyer.
March 26, 2016 4:50 pm So ... it's not too late to stop it?
March 26, 2016 4:10 pm I love that Snyder thinks that dismissively killing off Jimmy Olsen off is "fun". And by "love" I mean "I'm going freak the fuck out if this guy ever touches these characters again".
March 26, 2016 3:48 pm I've been eagerly anticipating your review because, despite all the negative criticism, I didn't feel I'd heard anyone properly articulate what made this film so bad (the "steaming pile of garbage" style of review is not helpful). I came out of that movie knowing I didn't like it, so I appreciate your ability to help me clarify what it is I didn't like.
February 28, 2016 3:14 pm I came out of "Superman Returns" merely underwhelmed; the more I watch it, I think it's the worst of the 6. The bigger issue, though, is: Why can't we have a good Superman movie?
