Well, lets see. I paid 25 bucks for 12 issues.

Normally they sell for like 4 bucks a pop, so that would be 48 bucks. So a discount of about half.

Dang. Most places do like 10-20%. Um... suck it up and think of that discount over the weeks you're waiting for your comics to arrive?

Doesn't Marvel only offer like 10 of their books for subscription, though?

I always thought that was kinda dumb. DC had least puts most of their stable of titles up.

Grant Morrison's leaving Action Comics

http://uk.ign.com/articles/2012/07/2...-action-comics

I kinda hoped that he would stay in Action comics for more than 16 issues and that he would develop Superman as much as he did Batman

Morales also wasn't too hot this issue; a lot of the pencils looked rushed like they could've used extra finesse. However the first 2 issues were the bee's knees and totally wiping out the Superman I grew up with (post-crisis) out of the new continuity was worth it cause of those books if you ask me.
well Krypto's Ghost was explained in #5 that he was stuck in the Phantom Zone as well as the fact that the Solict for #13 says he will reappear is a nice follow-up to me. I like #3 because it showed more of Clark Kent outside of Superman, Krypton scenes showing the threat of The Collector/Brainiac as well as Metallo, More of how the Public veiw Superman and some of the ramifications of #1. Yeah some scenes felt cut together and was the only bad part but it had scenes like Superman saving the cat and stopping the truck from hitting the little gun at the same time only for people to chase him away showcasing while he is helping people and stopping criminals he still has some way to go turn from Superpowered vigilante/outlaw to World's greatest hero which is awesome.

Yeah which makes issue 3 a better read in retrospect but that doesn't change the fact that during the initial read it felt like a mess.

With the way comics are being written for trade, you should be used to it by now.

True true. But Morrison's always been better than most at bringing up threads and then resolving them in a single issue.

And sometimes he hasn't. This being one particular case. Guess he was sober when he wrote that issue.

From CA Feb 6th 2013:
Grant Morrison: The 'Action Comics' Exit Interview
Quote:
Originally Posted by Brian Compton
There is no denying Grant Morrison is one of the premiere voices in the comic book industry today. Whether he is crafting stories about interdimensional, alien gods enslaving humanity or just reinventing the Justice League for a new generation, it is clear the man is a visionary. Particularly with respect to Superman, of whom Morrison had been telling a distinct, independently consistent saga for a number of years throughout a plethora of titles like JLA, DC One Million and Superman Beyond, concluding with what's arguably the writer's most beloved superhero work, All-Star Superman. But Morrison returned to the Man of Steel in 2011, writing the reboot of Action Comics for DC Comics' New 52 line, with the stated intention of taking a different look at Superman's early years, taking specific inspiration from the "New Deal" era of America in which the character was originally created by Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel.

With his run of Action Comics coming to an end in March, we thought this was the best time to chat with Morrison about his latest work with the Man of Steel.

I have a question for you guys about Action Comics. I know the first few issues take place in Superman's "past." Is there a time jump in Action Comics to make it in sync with other books, or does Morrison's run take place several years behind the rest if DC's books?

After the first arc it's after the first Justice League arc, but still behind everything else.

It jumps around in time for a few issues too. Honestly, the timeline is really hard to follow in Action Comics because parts of it take place non-linearly and such. Morrison's crazy brain in action, you know.

Is the first arc of Action Comics the definitive New 52 Superman origin, or is Birthright still applicable?

Birthright couldn't have happened. The Kents died before he became Superman now (again).

Besides, Birthright was only ever in continuity for like a few years. Hell, months really. I mean there's been like 3 other origin stories and a reboot since then.
