"No weapon formed against them could prosper."
And there are people who are not even buying it but claim the right to come month after month to pan it. Let's face it, if after 15 issues they are still doing this, it is about trolling.
If DC took on board the moaners on the net we'd never have a reboot, so they don't pay any mind to them. They pay attention to sales and this book brings in the sales.
I don't think its always just about trolling, I know anything I say regarding the quality of this book tends to stem from the back that I really want to like it.
That being said, I haven't been a fan of most of the issues so far (I did like a few though), but I'm optimistic that Johns will step his game up now that he's with his old pal Reis.
Ha admittedly I really do flip through it at the shop, probably since a few issues after origins.
And Johns certainly has his issues, but I think part of it might be Lee, considering the best parts of the series imo had others on art.
Has it been said to what degree Lee is involved with plotting?
I like what DC is doing with this book, I understand that this is the company's flagship book and it reads that way to me. What I mean is a person can pick it up and read it and you get a decent idea of who the characters are, Johns walks a fine line with his writing, he makes the characters fun, keeps some tension between certain members (Batman and Aquaman) but doesn't try to force things with the characters. You can actually jump on at almost any point and as long as you have a bsic understanding of the characters you should be fine.
I wish sometimes Johns would push it but I understand why he doesn't. I really enjoy this book for what it is and I love the Shazam back up.l
