Anyone who thinks DC is bringing back the Silver Age doesn't know what the Silver Age is.
There is no such word as "persay," it's per se, two words, from the Latin.
This looks absolutely fabulous.. and to get Jay and Alan 'young'.. that's a dream come true for me. Alan's always been my favorite Green Lantern character (but what.. I ask.. WHAT will his uniform look like?!?!?!?) I've never had a problem with Robison's writing style, I guess I can appreciate where others are coming from.. but it works just fine for me. I get the Clark/Diana vibe, too.. as someone noted. The article mentions that the Trinity won't be the focus, and that's fine but it drives me crazy when alternate reality versions of characters are more interesting with the 'regular' ones. At least on the surface. Maybe that's easy to do if you don't have to keep them around and maintain that level of interest in them.
My only quibble with this book is I've gone completely digital but it looks like something I'd want in print. Oh well.. if it's good enough there's room on the TPB shelf I guess.
Meh, I just hope they don't keep making Darkseid some dumb warlord.
This preview pretty much proved out my anxieties about Robinson writing this title.
His JLA (and Cry for Justice) wasn't a fluke. He's bad at writing superhero comics. His prose is maximum purple and he only writes in prose. I wanted to love this book.
Well there goes the Thomas theories...
"Tt..You can't just build a boat and hope darkness magically sails away with it."
"Why not? It's my boat."
It really doesn't necessarily have to mean anything. Considering their history in alternate universes, I can get why minds would go there, but just to play devil's advocate right now its quite getting ahead of ourselves.
Especially when we consider that they are not playing a huge role in this book, despite the play they've been getting in the lead-up. Which I feel is deliberate. I think its the Doyle-effect, honestly. Referring of course to the character Doyle in the series Angel, and how in the first season he was given lead character status even though he was planned, from the very start, to be killed off halfway through the season. It was done to give the illusion of longevity and importance to the character to make it shocking when he was killed off. I think the trinity here are being hyped up to no end so it'll be rather jolting to fans when they make their exit. I mean, they've made no bones that characters like Jay and Alan are indeed coming, but I think what puts them at the forefront is going to be quite significant and will have to do with the trinity leaving that forefront. Be it by dying, maiming, leaving the planet, leaving the universe, or something other means.

Eh might be a bit late but... Who's Robin supposed to be? Bruce's daughter? I thought Helen was his only child on Earth-2 or is that her?
Which I'm fine with personally, I've been longing for something different like this. As far as Robinson's writing is concerned, I'm waiting to read more of this. I'm not necessarily turned off by what I see, I just want to see more before I condemn it.
