Lobdell is honestly one of my least-favorite writers I've ever encountered on any comic. I have a general rule now to avoid him at all costs, and I'm only making an exception this time so I'm not lost when Pak begins his run.

On the flip side, I think Grant Morrison is a genius, and one of the most imaginative writers in all of superhero comics. I just love his writing to bits, Action Comics included. He and Mark Waid are probably my favorite current superhero writers.

As for Pak, he was one of Marvel's best, imo, so I have high hopes for him on DC.

And thanks for the clarification. That makes much more sense.
So the guy on the boat ISN'T Perry's uncle? The great uncle who found the binos. We don't know who it is at this point right?
Yeah, I don't think either of those characters is Perry's uncle, and we're not supposed to know who the guy on the boat is yet.

We didn't need the addition of that little cultural jab that's been done to death.
I honestly didn't even think about that, lol. I just really like the character dynamics so far, and am intrigued by the direction it's apparently going in.
