Wow, the POWER GIRL preview looks rather mundane; did Palmiotti and Gray write this predictable scenario in their sleep? And BTW, both covers for this issue look hideous as well.

And I still don't know why DC is wasting trees on a Magog series; that'll probably go straight into the quarter bin in about six months.

    CBR has another Geoff Johns Prime session with, well, Geoff Johns. Topics this session include SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN, ADVENTURE COMICS and Johns' approach to the Clark-Superman duality.
    And my approach to Clark and Superman as far as the duality is a mix of both. He is both Clark Kent and Superman. The awkwardness of young Clark Kent grows from dealing with the emergence of his Kryptonian abilities while the heroics of Superboy are an extension of everything he’s taken from Ma and Pa Kent.

Sounds like Johns couldn't decide which aspect of Superman to fetishize more, so it'll probably turn out to be a awkward mash-up of Donner and the Silver Age LSH. Oh well, at least the artwork by Gary Frank should be nice.

    There's also the obligatory question about PAD's Supergirl. Why can't people let it die? The character had a definite ending to her story. Yes, there are more stories that could be told, but none that need to be told.

And certainly not by Geoff Johns, who (outside of Courtney Whitmore) can't write heroic female characters very well at all.
