    Something like probably wouldn't sell much, but I guess it could be interesting if done correctly.

    That's why I'd like to see Action Comics become a Superman centric anthology series. It really would allow Superman's supporting cast like Lex Luthor, Jimmy Olsen, Lois Lane, and Steel to really shine.

    That might be neat would be something pretty intetesting to do in Action Comics when the Lex story ends

    Though I wish it would never end :csad:

    Yeah, if Spencer and Silva could do it, I'd love a Jimmy Olsen ongoing.

    I'm disappointed in the overall talent there, honestly. Obviously, I'm looking forward to the Cornell/Woods story, but couldn't they have found some comic talent to fill out that instead of Donner, Goyer and Lindelof? I mean, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Mark Waid, Greg Rucka (I know the latter two aren't on good terms with DC, but surely for such a big anniversary thing they could offer up a short or something). They don't mention the art, so hopefully that will deliver (maybe some art from Quietly, Frank, maybe even a bit of Alan Davis). Though, I guess you never know, those movie folk could surprise, but it seems like they need to go all out for this kind of thing like Marvel did with their anniversary issues (except Cap, oh Lord, except Cap).

    I don't think DC cares enough about Action Comics to get people as good as that.

    I meant Geoff Johns. Sorry, had to write that in a hurry as I was leaving awhile ago.

    Anyway, finally got around to reading Superman 707 thanks to JTStarkiller. Honestly, it didn't seem as bad as many made out. I won't go as far as saying it was good or anything, and sure, the stuff with Lois did kind of upset, but it was blatantly obvious there was some kind of mind control going on. I mean, the chick was even voicing his exact words. It wasn't the total turnaround people were hoping for, but I remain fairly optimistic after this issue.

    Greg Johns= Geoff John's goatee-donning evil twin.

    I am excited about the apperence of the [BLACKOUT]Superman Squad[/BLACKOUT] and the latest solicitation's revealing a teenage Batman and Superman team-up. Still, unsure if I can drop this.
