What is the better of the two books again? I heard Action Comics but I've read Superman #1 and I liked it. Haven't read the rest though

I'm looking forward to seeing what Morrison has planned next now that the first arc is finished

Preview for Action Comics #9.

If he doesn't stop the Birthers from finding out his true origin then he's secret identity is revealed and the world is doom!

I wonder if this is set up for Multerversity. Like how Seven Soldiers and Batman planted the seeds for Final Crisis.

I've come to the conclusion that Lobdell is clearly doing some kind of sexual favors to someone that is high up within DC. That's the only explanation I can come up with on why he's getting so much work when all of it is pure crap to begin with.

Meanwhile Brian Wood, Mark Waid, and Greg Rucka all two-step far far away fromDC's overview.

It's enough to make you want to punch a kitten.

After reading this issue of Action Comics part of me wishes that Earth 23 Superman was the main Superman for this new 52 with some minor work done with his job (meaning him not being president) and his Secret Identity name. However speaking as an African-American it was nice to see a diverse Superman and would have love it if when DC decided to do this reboot you saw more of that through out the books kind of like what was suppose to happen after COIE.

Oh, how I would love a the younger, brash Superman by Brian Wood. The would seem like something that could be fresh and creative. Something that the reboot should have taken care of instead of giving us 90's X-Men writers.

So, Super-Doom. When do you think we'll see him again?

It might be too obvious if you know much about Morrison and Superman's history, but "The Curse of Superman" was an instant favorite for me.

I still don't understand why DC hasn't put Fisch on Superman. The man's a genius in his own right, and he's already working on Action.

What?! But Lobdell is doing such awesome work right now. How can you not want the pen of Superboy to try his hand at Superman?

...

If I don't laugh I'll cry.

While, ironically, Wood goes off and becomes an X-Men writer.

And the best damn writer of Conan the Barabarian ever.

Action Comics was good this week, nice to see Morrison doing some more of these multiverse stories

Wait Superman is getting a new writer again

Is there a rule that series can't have the same writer for more than six issues

Brian Wood writing two X-Men books. Strange. I don't think I could buy more than one X-Men book. I would feel dirty.
