      On the one hand, I've been wanting to see Scott Lobdell get back into mainstream comics. So while I have no interest in any of these Post Crisis-Zero Hour-Infinite Crisis-Final Crisis-Flashpoint revamps; I'm glad he's getting steady work.

    Even though I'm against a new Continuity for DC, and WILL voice this to DC themselves, I'll keep an open mind...for now. Mostly because of what RC said that Perez writes a low-powered Superman. Since I HATE how ludicrously powerful Superman is nowadays, I'm interested to see him powered down where he should be.

I want to give them the chance, but this will be the FOURTH time they've rebooted Superman (Birthright, Secret Origin and Earth 1) to be younger and 'hipper'... and since they seem to never be able to grasp the lesson of COIE; I just don't see the point in spending any money on something I know they'll just retcon anyways.

I'd probably be more accepting of it if they did a line-wide ending (in essence, give every character their own "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow") and then started fresh... but since it looks like they'll again be cherry-picking elements to keep and throw out, I don't want to spend money on something that's so disposable. But that's just me!


      But on the other hand, this will be the third try at a mainstream Superboy book, when their previous try didn't even make it past issue 10! I mean, what the hell?


        And on the final hand, dear lord, the costume is god-awful. Here I thought they couldn't do worse than the plains clothes look...

    No kidding. And STILL black! And there's the dumb tattoo. *Shudders*

Yep. Although, I will admit, that while I don't love the costume on him in the Superboy#1, I'm happy at least to see him back in something that RESEMBLES a costume...
