    And it's interesting that a writer talks openly about making things up along the way. Like some other people have said other writers have done this to great success, like Morrison and I think Waid. Perhaps this is the medicine the Superbooks needed. Superman #13 made me smile.
    Yeah. Same here. Looking forward to this week's issue of Superboy. I admit, it'll be the first issue of Superboy I've bought since the relaunch ... come to think of it, it'll be the first crossover event I've checked out in a long time. I wonder if we'll discover more about H'El or if he'll still be lurking in the background, like the last page of Superman #13 ...

    to be fair, no one gets along with Waid.

    I'm thinking the H'El reveal will happen in Superboy #13. He'll kick Superboy's ass, and then, seeing Kara's feelings about Krypton and Earth, he'll try to sway her to his side. I'm still curious about the dead Kryptonian dragon thingy.

    Goodbye León (november 16th, 1993 - june 12th, 2009). You were, are and always will be the best friend I ever had. I will always love you and never forget you. And please, please forgive me.

    Thank you for teaching me about love, patience and caring. Rest in Peace, my friend. I hope that wherever it is you are now, you can run and play as much as you want.

While this can be percieved as risky, I'd argue that it's quite courageous; and there have been many artists, writers, performers, etc who have utilised spontaneity to great dramatic effect in various artistic fields because it can liven up the senses when used well; also in the cut-throat world of monlthy mainstream comics, deadlines, etc, the ability to constantly stay on one's toes and think fast is a definite asset.

    Lobdell stated, "[T]he New 52 gave us fresh chances. In 'Superman' #13 when Clark quits the Daily Planet, you could have started the New 52 in that moment. I would hate for in two years if people are like, 'Oh, I liked the New 52 when it came out, but now it's more of the same thing.'"

    This is the kind of approach, I believe, the Superman title needed. Unpredictability. The first 12 issues obviously copped criticism for being stale (I dropped the title after #8). Lobdell and Rocafort, with their energy and freshness, have given a shot of adrenaline to the man of steel, judging from #0 and #13.
    Agreed. This is the "New 52" and there will be plenty of time for these characters to grow and, in the case of Lois and Clark, grow together.

    I'm not currently buying Superman, but I'm strongly considering dropping Action after Morrison leaves, and then picking up Lobdell's Superman. I didn't really care for Perez's or Giffen's Superman issues.

    At least give Action a try. Don't leave because Morrison is leaving. That is the worst thing you could do to the character. After all it's the character and his success that should really matter not who is writing it. If you try it and not like it after a issue or 2 then by all means give it up.

    Well, I was definitely going to keep an eye on it and the reviews, but the only thing I've read from Diggle was his Batman Confidential issues, and I didn't like it. Tony Daniel on art isn't a plus either, IMO.

    We'll see. I was only planning on getting one Superman book, and this seemed like a good time to transition from Action to Superman.

    I can't disagree more strongly.

    If I stay with the book, it's because I also like Diggle, not because the character is the only (or even the most) important thing.

    He was quite a pleasant guy when I spoke w/ him at SDCC!!!
    Comics were happier before the Internet turned writing superhero stories into fruitless attempts to impress/entertain a small group of ppl who appear to hate comics and their creators.
