"'Kirby got a shitty contract too, so get over it' isn't a great tagline."
You know, I enjoyed his first arc a lot, but......george, I just think you are making excuses out of you super unpopular superman run.....
Artists. Are. Tempermental. (Throws computer across room.) Security guy can probably agree on that point.
"Make yourself comfortable, I haven’t time to attend to it." - With these words, a legend was born.
'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."
That's going to be the reason why the New 52 was created. It was a ploy by the people of DC comics to hype up Man of Steel. That is what people will be saying after Perez's statements.
I'm glad he spoke the way he did, because I've been wondering how the New 52 fell apart so quickly.

I just find Perez's writing to be really typical. The editorial restriction here seems more like it would have affected the plotting, not the writing style that I find to be unremarkable.
I wonder if one of the aspects they kept going back and forth on was whether or not Lois knew Clark was Superman. It could explain why the hinting was laid on heavily without committing one way or another, but ultimately ended up being unmentioned/unresolved by arc's end.
I hate to say it being a fan of George Perez...but whatever the reason, he gave us an extremely weak run on Superman. If that was the best he could do under those conditions then frankly I'm glad he's off the book, because it was pretty lame.
Life looks better in black and white.
Look up the video where Kevin Smith talks about the time when he was hired to write the Superman script.
