    That ended how long ago? It's like saying an actress is good at playing a high school student even ten years later because she use to play that part in the past.

    I suffered through almost all of his JLA run, and no matter how much you argue editorial interference and what not, those issues were painful to read from even the dialogue stand point. Nobody held a gun to his head and forced him to write such painful garbage for Donna and the others.

    Which is why I bring up The Shade, which is being written now.

    (And no one held a gun to your head and forced you to read his run. If you didn't like it, you should've dropped it.)

    Starman ended in 01. Not that long ago if you think about it. Not to mention The Golden Age, various JSA titles and many others, he is a good writer. I didn't defend JLA at all. Yes, it was not that great. Was it terrible? No, as I said there have been much worse written comics out there recently. And have you even read Starman? Its utterly fantastic. And the Shade mini going on right now is as well. So no, I will not stop bringing up Starman as an example. If it was written 40 years ago, then your point is valid. 11 years is not that long ago. Every writer writes crap every once in a while, its just how it is. You can't base one not so great book off their entire career.

    Nah. I mean, they need to do that, otherwise they'll have people saying thta Robinson didn't actually wrote it and it's all a conspiracy etc etc. I saw that.

    Well, I thought his Blackest Night tie-in was pretty great despite the art (BagleyARGH). For rest, yeah, I can kind of agree.

    Well, since I was pretty much a regular reader between Crisis on Infinite Earths until about a year after Zero Hour, yes, I have read some of Starman. What I read was enjoyable. (And, by the way, prior to CoIE, I was a regular reader of many DC and Marvel books from around 1972 - 1983ish, when money got tight after college.)

    But anything new I read of his when I started getting back into comic books again (2009-2010) until the start of the DCnU seemed like guano.
