I have heard a lot of REALLY bad things about this run mostly associated with a lot of dislike for Ausen's writing. I have read some of his stuff in other titles and other companies and didn't really care for most of it myself but it wasn't awful. I also heard that he wasn't even allowed to finish his own story or that he finished the story under a pseudonym. Can someone explain to me exactly what this was all about and what was wrong with these books or this story. I notice that they are reprinted in trade and that the individual issues themselves seem to be somewhat hard to find in my area so I was just kind of curious what the grumblings were all about.
I found that Austen's work on Action Comics was among his best work. He was terrible on the Avengers and the X-Men, however his Action run wasn't bad ...... what really helped the run was the art by Ivan Reis.
