I'm pretty sure I've heard that from him on more than one occasion, as well, but I'm too lazy (and don't care enough) to hunt it up, so I'll just take his word by default.

So you aren't willing to pay even for the stuff you DO like (well, except sex).

Ah, well, that's MUCH better...

Doomsday Clock > Heroes in Crisis

Daaaaaaamn Geoff Johns! The Metaverse? At first I thought this was gonna be some messy shit like HiC but when it started playing out, beginning with Superman appearing in 1938 and how the constant changing of the DCU in the future was messing with Manhattan's time vision.... fucking incredible. Then he decided to change the universe around Superman in his own way to see what all could change in the mainstream universe as well as the rest of the Multiverse because he hadn't felt that kind of sensation?! Even the Nathaniel Dusk stuff playing out the way it did, and Johnny Thunder being the coffee guy who got fired... and the JSA!! Oh man how it went from the 40's and Superman existing to the universe changing and the scene playing out differently. And Hourman's "No pictures Johnny, I'm still working on my suit..." I LOVED it!

Superman's gonna whoop that blue ass! But HOW MUCH will the universe be changed afterwards?! It WILL be changed, because DC will no doubt bring back the Legion and JSA.... but what else could happen? We were teased early on about Ozymandias teaming with Lex Luthor and that hasn't happened. There's already a new Rorschach running around. Will the remnants of the Watchmen universe stay in what will become the modern day DCU? Will they go back to continue a new Watchmen future?

And WTF is gonna go down with the Supermen Theory, Black Adam invading the United Nations, and all of the heroes and villains who're secretly government pawns?!?

I admit, that wasn't a bad issue or way of going about things.

So... What was the very important reason to postpone Heroes in Crisis #9 for people to read Doomsday Clock first?

Maybe to soften the blow of HiC. Imagine that being the only DC comic you read on a Wednesday.

Just skimmed over #11. Holy moley, that's a whole lot of exposition. In fact, that's like all that happened.

It's been over two months since the last issue. Wasn't this supposed to be a bi-monthly book?

The last issue is supposed to come out on December 18.

Originally it was supposed to be monthly and end in December 2018.

All depends on if Johns lands the ending or not.

Even if he doesn't land the ending, there are still certainly things I'd like to see happen in the rest of the DCU. The Supermen Theory changes the landscape quite a bit, as well as Black Adam vs Wonder Woman, the characters confirmed to have been somewhat created on purpose by the government... and I'm gonna go ahead and say it... I LOVE the Sandstorm character. The Billy Batson-ish dynamic, the look, and the powers being a weird combo of Marvel's Sandman and DC's Red Tornado... it's everything I didn't know I wanted in a character. He has the potential to be a better character than Kamala Khan, especially since he didn't have to take the name/logo of an existing character.

With everything that's changed in the DCU since this series began, I have every reason to believe Saturn Girl was Marty McFly'ed out of existence because the LoSH were being given to another creative team. Same thing with the downplayed involvement of the JSA in this series.

I haven't got caught up on the Justice League book, but everything with the JSA coming back there seems like it isn't catching as many eyes as it should be. Post Doomsday Clock will the JSA return to the golden age of the prime Earth, or simply be from another Earth entirely? It's like everything with the Batman Who Laughs and the Doom War, hell even Leviathan is taking away from one of the potentially biggest comebacks in DC's history.

Yea but it seems very unlikely that we're going to see any big ripples from this story into the rest of the DCU though, the delays killed that. Snyder, Bendis and King are running the main universe now so the only reason to read this, if you haven't been already, is if it works as a self contained story.

So far the only standout issue has been #10, everything else while not bad has been kind of forgettable. If he doesn't nail the ending the entire thing ends up being kind of irrelevant due to Johns not being able to stick to a schedule.

Beyond that, Geoff has lost his clout. For a long time he had only to say it, and it was law. Not now.

Now he can only make suggestions.

Yo.

I read this over the wk-end, and I thought it was an interesting look at a DCU with a deeper smidgen of politics affecting it than *I* can recall ever seeing previously. but I'll admit to finding it lol-worthy that the Doc pimp-smacks 4 GLs, Cap Marvel & his crew, AND S-girl.....but somehow S-man alone is an issue??

I mean, Ive been reading comics (and DC) long enuff that its not really unexpected, but this just seemed like such a knob-polishing I couldn't help but giggle when I was going thru the last 2 books....

I was able to "find" it and read it earlier today, so it must be.

Meh. For Geoff, it wasn't terrible. Though with as much shit as I give him about issues chock full of double and single splash pages, I couldn't help but sigh when he had 2 1/2 pages of nothing but black with no captions. Obviously he did it for effect, but c'mon. Let the artsy writers do that. That's not you, man.

It gave us our answer about 5G -- it's just another Earth. So whatever happens on it, it'll be a big "who cares."

Doomsday Clock had a very intriguing conclusion.

Like all of Geoff's events, it just set up more events. And it took two years to do that.

As John Wayne said angrily to a preacher who was preaching too long at a funeral in The Searchers -- "Put an amen to it!"

The way the series ended and how it's ending lined up as well as showed similarities to the new tv series' finale.... makes me think Geoff wasn't the reason for the delays. It also went from being his way of bringing back the Legion and JSA into ALSO setting up the 5G sub-plot, possible future Crisis events, and a new future in the Watchmen world.

Rather than setting up future events, I'd have used the page space to really get into the metahuman brawl between Black Adam's forces, Russia's heroes, and Superman. Or make it a bit clearer that Superman being God-like but still retaining his humanity was what made Manhattan have a change in his perspective.

I still want to see more of the Sandstorm character.... and unless Wonder Woman herself is leading the team, I'm not sure another Global Guardians would be given the talent or time of day to actually be successful. Doc M should've commented on how Superman had already changed again since the beginning of the narrative, going from Superman w/red belt to Superman w/red undies again. Especially considering if the New52 is just Earth52 now... Superman is currently the prime Earth Supes merged with another Clark from another Earth!
