Another cop-out. I'm sorry, but in this day and age, when information and updates can be shared and coordinated within moments, the excuse of them not exchanging scripts doesn't work - it's what editors are for (they're the 'guiding hand').JL comes out before SM. Johns and Lobdell maybe don't exchange scripts but it is more than likely all the writers have a jist what is going on and will fit the status quo in their stories. Lobdell is on record to say he is interested in writing/progressing the status quo, not showing how it started. That is Johns job. It's no more difficult to get than what goes on in many titles across the DCU and the new 52.
Then why claim someone is 'bitter'?It's up to you to nit pick if you want though.
