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.

Enter Bendis. His plotting, story progression, character development and writing style just is a complete mismatch for Superman. Heís boring, plodding and dull here. The sooner heís 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).

Interesting. I think Waidís run on FF was terrific and highly innovative. Your choice but I think you should give it more than 3 issues. As to Immortal Hulk, personally, I read the first 10 issues and stopped. It just didnít hold my interest.

Donny Cates’ Thor, first six issue arc, really finished strong. Have to admit, not a big fan of this artist, felt this arc could have taken another few issues to make the resolution feel less rushed, and Thor’s big revelation felt a bit like pandering to the MCU. But, that said, it really stuck with me.

Joker HC - Brian Azzarello /Lee Bermejo
Batman Damned - “/“
9/10 for me.

I mean the art is without question eye watering good. Bermejo’s Gothic style really does it for me. Joker especially is absolutely amazing, I refuse to beleive that TDK didn't base Ledgers Joker look on this art. Although this Joker is easily the Darkest form of this charachter I have ever read, and I love it. And perfect antithesis to Batman. Damned wasn’t as good but it wrapped it up real well and the writing was entertaining.

After reading these I had to order the statues. The story is going to stick with me like any good Batman story.
