I find it such an odd tagline when Morrison's take on Superman is pretty clear both in his various uses of the character and what he says in his book. Cynisism is about as far away from Morrison's Clark as you can get. Makes me wonder if this is more editorial mandate or just a misleading, eye grabbing tagline.

Seems like a desperate bid for attention and notereity to me. Hopefully it generates as much actual interest as that other bid for attention and notereity, the Comic-Con protest march.

Agreed.

I read it as the noise you make when the air gets knocked out of your lungs. Nothing suggests this has anything to do with religion at all. This guy wants to be the next guy to boycott the Beatles or something. Not to mention that this store is going to have even more problems what with not stocking a popular relaunch title and any other books by Morrison which usually sell really well. Hope he gets financially bitchslapped for this.

With names like that you would think it would be obvious.

This guy goes out of business in three to six months. We don't need shitty comic stores like that anyways.

I wrote a couple of comments on the bewing dispute on the shop's Facebook page. But when the guy posted "Keep that fan mail comin'!" and then made it so you had to Like the page to post there, it became clear this is all about drumming up publicity for him. So I certainly didn't bother liking the page, and gave up on what was a one-sided discussion anyways.

Why? Because Morrison said he was too disconnected from the world, and readers had trouble relating to him.
Yeah, the reason people don't relate to Superman is because he doesn't bleed.

The t-shirt and jeans? ... Meh, whatever. I can deal with it.

A cape attached to the fucking t-shirt? What the fuck were they smoking, it looks disgusting.

This book just didn't feel like superman, but hey.. I guess that's what Morrison is going for. I'll give it a few more tries. Hopefully he doesn't go RIP, return of bruce wayne, or final crisis on us with this book and actually makes coherent sense...

( this is me holding my breath... )

Don't like the look but the story wasn't bad.

Anyone else catch the Will Eisner tribute? Page 22, first panel: when Clark's on the cell with I guess his boss, in the background there is a graffiti-tagged porch with WE in the style of Eisner's signature.
