Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country.

Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples. Just finished Books 1-3 which contain issues 1-54. Amazing stuff here. If you haven't read it, give it a chance.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Enter Bendis. His plotting, story progression, character development and writing style just is a complete mismatch for Superman. He’s boring, plodding and dull here. The sooner he’s off these books the better.

IMHO.
I am actually enjoying his Superman and Action run. I do think that the revealing of the Secret Identity will be reversed either at the end of his run or when a new team takes over.

I only hope that he does not stay too long at the party though. I think he was on the Avengers books way too long and I would be fine if he remained on the title for another year and then depart (I also like the fact that he said that when he wanted to take over the books that he wanted them on a monthly only schedule and not twice a month. I think more books need to do that.)

I highlighted because I started to read the Mark Waid run of the FF which is hailed as one of the best and embodies the spirit of the Kirby/Lee run. I must confess I only read the first 3 issues but man it just reminds me of a middling family superhero show that would be on TGIF on ABC in the 90's. It's just missing the laugh track. I was a teenager in the 90's and I wouldn't have like this then. I think this was aimed at those that loved the OG run from their childhood in the 60's (I wasn't even born). So before I get too off track. I think the family dynamic of the FF is important and Superman strong moral compass is important to that character. But copying the tone of those original runs from the 50's and 60's for me sometimes miss the mark. So not to derail the thread totally. I'm enjoying immortal Hulk (I know me and everyone else).
