Western comics as a whole are in a pretty bad place now, I don't bother with them anymore.

I even was hopeful for Bendisí turn on Superman but itís turned into navel gazing drivel.

Yeah I was about to say, Iím a millennial. The dudes that write this stuff are definitely an older generation. Gen X I think most of them are? Older white men for the most part.

Iíd rather more millennials were writing. Then characters like Nightwing, Wally and Tim Drake would get the respect they deserve lol. I think Marvel is a bit better with diversity overall, including representations of age, ethnicity, sex, etc amongst its creators and comic characters. To varying degrees of representation and success.

You can be 39 and be a Millennial. Bad writing is bad writing anyway.

...also, I've heard they are cancelling the Byrne Man of Steel omnibus. Another reason to not like them.

Have you reread Byrneís Superman? I have all the trades and reread them recently. I was really surprised that, for a series I loved back in the Ď80s, the writing jus doesnít hold up.

Yeah itís a little dated, I want that series for nostalgia reasons. It was when I started collecting comics on a consistent basis.

When did Superman kill outside of an Injustice style storyline? Did I miss one?

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

He's no longer Flash, first they erased him from continuity in new 52 to establish barry... then he came back with Rebirth One shot, but not his family... his wife and children and Jay Garrick the all Flash Family were erased from continueity then they made Wally kill people in Heroes in Crisis event to show he's not fit to be Flash...

Basicly DC took this huge dump on him...
