Sorry again for the other topic opened yesterday...!

Good news. I'm glad to buy only 2 titles (but 2 good ones), and the return of the original SUPERMAN Vol. I... Well, that's a nice idea.

I have always hoped these 2 things.
Now I want to know who will be the authors! Johns? Waid? Pacheco? I'm sure they will begin a new era of greatness for my favorite hero #2.

Wow, this sounds exciting! I'd love to be able to get to the comic book shop and tap dance.

Quote from: "Dan Didio"
DD: Absolutely. One of the things that I felt very strongly about was that our four premiere books, which I always feel set the style and tone for the DCU: Superman, Batman, Action Comics and Detective Comics should have their original numbering. They’re very special series, both given their characters and historically, and they should be treated as such.


This gladdens my heart. Watching a piece of comics history be restored in a small way, like the numbering on SUPERMAN, is a step in the right direction. Appreciation for the past uplifts us all, whether it be in small, trivial ways like restoring the numbering on a classic comic like SUPERMAN, or in larger ways like restoring old buildings. Numbering may be a very little thing, but it's a step in the right direction for the Superman titles. Didio may not know from shinola when it comes to television, but an old fanboy like him is the best sort of person to run a comic book company.

Ditto for the HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE that's going on in 52: hopefully, they'll stick to it the second time around!

Hopefully, they'll view this as an opportunity to restore to the DC Universe some of the amazing stories of the past to leave open for future story potential and sequels to be told in the present: the great classic stuff by John Broome, Nelson Bridwell, and maybe the best of them all, the amazing Gardner Fox!

Your posts are nice to read.

However, the contemporary art will probably remain the same - Superman "changing" looks in every panel...  I will have to see these to believe it...

Quote from: "Captain Kal"
While I'm happy the AOS is returning to its original name of Superman, I'm saddened that we're only going to have 2 main superbooks.

OTOH, maybe All-Star Superman is supposed to be that third -- albeit out of continuity -- book, so it balances out to 3 still.

It's a bit mean-spirited of me, but the Dreaded-One-whose-name-is-mentioned-far-too-often-here got the new 'Superman' book as one of his perks when rebooting the character, so it's kind of fitting that that book bites the dust at last.  Yet another remnant of that terrible retcon is gone.


While many people feel Superman got 'Byrned' (you can start groaning at the bad pun now) his rewrite was a breath of fresh air for a character that had really become uneven through the years.

There was the 'Krypton was wonderful but the Science council were idiots' and yet as the Nightwing and Firebird story showd Superman was not above doing similar boneheaded things. Then there was Superman's power level which had gotten ridiculous. A common joke we have for the Silver Age was:

Superman saves a forgotten civilization in the Andromida galaxy, then  moves a planet out of the way of a comet in Quazar 26 100 million light  years from Earth, and finally saves Lois Lane from Lex Luthor all in 2.2  seconds.  'Slow Day' thinks Superman.

The Sand Superman saga which was supposed to fix this was quickly ignored and Superman was again just one step below being a god. Magic, superscience, and kryptonite were coming out fo the woodwork and many times Superman seemed to have forgotten his superbrain at home. Though the cartoons were far worse than the comics in this reguard.

No matter what happens to Earth-2 (I'm skeptical) this is good news. It's something we've only dreamed of, and now it's happening.

A couple of things do still worry me, though. The first is the direction of Crisis...is Kal-L going to be portrayed as a Watchmen-style old Nazi? And the second involves our earth...what happens when Jeph Loeb leaves?

Jeph is a good friend of Elliot S! Maggin's, and his are the only Superman comics I can stand to read- he writes Supergirl and Superman/Batman. Granted, I haven't read All-Star Superman yet.


...no pun intended.

It is usually a better translator than Google.

Welcome, friend!
