My issue with brian azzarello's writing(style)

Is that it's almost never present. You'll have superman fighting 4 big villains with strong personal ties to the character and batman right there shoving a knife in his back and lois falling from a building and the only dialogue throughout the entire situation, the entire $5 dollar issue is this thought bubble diatribe about what it means to be a good friend.

Drive's me nuts.

Morrison had Superman fight an arch angel once, it was great...Azzarello probably has fantasy's about the thought bubble's he could have lectured us with.

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
