Isn't that the one issue Diggle was allowed to write?

I'm anxsciously awaiting my AC #19 in the post, the preview with Clark and Lois made it an insta purchase.

Anyways it looks like Lobdell is taking over writing duties on issue 22 as part of a different creative team. Such a friggin shame.

So Diggle's only doing 3 issues? Boo. I haven't read #19 yet, but I like Diggle and am hearing good things about his issue. I don't care for Lobdell at all.

Really? I haven't read it (gave up on the New 52 Superman title early on), but you're the first person I've heard say that.

I like Lobdell, He writes the two books I am most excited for every month. Superman and Teen Titans. I don't know why but I look foward to Teen Titans every month more-so than almost every other book I read. (However, having Brett Booth on Art always helps)

I can also imagine that having him write both Action and Superman can contribute to a more cohesive continuity which will be tough as it is considering Superman will be spread between 5 books. (Justice League, Action, Superman, Superman/Batman, and Superman Unchained)

I haven't seen many people complain about it. Most people were impressed, at least by Lobdell standards. But I never went looking for reactions.

There's some questionable stuff, like Superman saying telling H'El he was going to kick his butt and he was kind of a dick last issue. But overall it's held my interest and is the best the title has been in the New 52.

I don't think Diggle's doing all three. Daniels said he would take over writing duties, so maybe #20 and 21 are done by him...? It'd be nice if DC gave even a short statement for what's going on with Action.

I've just seen some pretty negative comments on other forums and assumed it featured the same kind of s****y characterization and plotting that made me hate his writing in the first place in Teen Titans and Red Hood.

Figured as much. Action Comics has been my go-to Superman title for the last year, so I'll be sad if it falls downhill after this Diggle issue. At least Unchained is on its way, though.

I have a question regarding Superman's powers. If he was pushed into the deepest depths of the ocean with no sun able to reach him will he die from the pressure being under there long enough? Seeing as how the sun powers his abilities.

Superman doesn't really need constant Sun exposure to keep his powers. His body doesn't need replenishment very often. There was an issue maybe five months ago where he was away from the Sun for an entire week and he wasn't slowing at all, he was still capable of benchpressing the earth with little effort.

I would say Superman would die of suffocation LONG before he died from the pressure.

According to issue #12 of Supergirl, Kryptonians don't need to breathe while they still have solar energy stored up.

I would say that Supergirl #12 proved the exact opposite of what you are saying. Diving into the water Supergirl was saying how she has to hold her breathe just like going into space, then while under water she kept thinking to herself, "I wish I could take a breathe" and reminding herself not to breath out. Then when she was attacked she was panicking because she was thinking to herself that she needs to escape before she runs out of breathe. It wasn't until she was in close proximity with her fortress where she no longer felt the need to breath.

So is everyone here in agreement that DCNU Superman is written better and is all around much better than he has been in years before the reboot?

Just curious since im new to this forum. I for one appreciate the Supes and his adventures far more now than i have ages. Great writing so far!

Well Superman (the title) was kind of directionless for a while, but I do quite like what Lobdell has been doing.

I would say that I am extremely optimistic for the future of Superman books. The only problem I have right now is that in the last issue of Superman, Clark was being a total douche

I wasn't too fond of the H'el on Earth issues, but outside of those, Lobdell's Superman issues were actually pretty decent. And this is coming from someone who thinks of him as the Anti-Christ for what he's done to the Titans.

The way I took it is up until then, she had never realized that she didn't need to breathe, and it was only upon running out of air that she realized she could survive without it. In other words, her reaction, blacking out was all psychosomatic, sort of like Ursa in Superman II reacting to being bitten by that snake even though she was impervious to its bite.
