I still own a sealed Death of Superman comic. Still remember walking into the store to get it and the queues were super long.

Superman unchained by Snyder and Lee, any good?
I'm picking it up this week

The reviews have been pretty mediocre. I was planning on getting it this week, but it's $4.99 and I can't justify spending that much on a comic book that isn't getting the best reviews.

Just bought Batman/Superman #1. I can't wait to read it! I'll post my thoughts on it here after doing so! :)

Still waiting on that price drop for Superman Unchained #1, too.

So the Brian Michael Bendis era of Superman is coming. What's your thoughts? I'm a fan of old-school Bendis (Powers, Jinx, Torso, Alias, Daredevil, Ultimate Spider-Man), but his newer stuff hasn't been too enjoyable. I was curious to whether I'd like his Superman or not, so I tried Action Comics #1000 and DC Nation #0. My thoughts on Action 1000...






After reading Action 1000, I went into Bendis' DC Nation #0 story quite skeptical. I found it to be quite boring. I told my friend that it felt weird and he said that it's Bendis doing 1970s Superman. I couldn't agree more.

So, I'm likely staying away from the Man of Steel mini-series. I wish Bendis would've went street-level with a Batman book.

Yeah, a Batman book ala Daredevil he did a few years ago would be awesome. Superman is boring.
