REAL TALK! He's like a magician that turns lemonade into lemons.
Sweet Jesus you're right! How didn't I see this before?! It's like Phil says... Somehow he took Batman and Superman, put them into the SAME BOOK TOGETHER and made it unreadable!I bet it was even his fault that they didn't title it "World's Finest"...
Geoff takes random sets of DC characters and lets ingenious plots develop from them.Jeph takes random plots and stuffs DC characters into them without regard to characterization.
Why...why it all makes SENSE now!
I don't know where all of the hate is coming from! That song "Stay" was great and those little librarian glasses are so adorable!Or is that a different Loeb?Which one dated Ethan Hawke?
So Loeb creates new characters and doesn't specialize in erasing the last 15 years of continuity?
Oh, my, yes, like... like HUSH! And HOLIDAY!
Wait, wait... Who's erasing the last 15 years of continuity? Surely you can't mean Geoff Johns, a writer who bends in spectacular contortions to makes sure that *everything* he does somehow fits into continuity no matter how little it actually relates to some story that was published 15 years ago?
This is absolutely true. Plus the fact that you can't read an entire Geoff Johns comic from start to finish while taking a piss.
In which comics does Loeb recapitate characters?
Geoff loves taking characters with promise that have been made boring by other writers (GL, JSA, Superman) and revving them back up, reinserting a sense of wonder. Loeb loves taking characters that are well known (Superman, Batman, the Ultimates), slowing down the pacing and turning them into uninteresting stereotypes of themselves.
By the way, are ya'll watching Heroes? Loeb is doing the same thing there. Slower stories, rehashed material, characters becoming caricatures.
Actually, it's exactly that which sparked this realization, JD. As hot as Randy Mohinder was, it was all so embarrassingly copied from "The Fly" remake that I cringed. I half-expected Hiro to walk in and say, "Be afraid; be very afraid."
This is slightly off-topic, but it got me thinking. I don't go to comic conventions, so I could be wrong, but: has anyone ever seen Joe Quesada and Dan Didio together? Since they each seem hell-bent on destroying a major comic book publisher, I have no reason to believe they're not the same person. Until told otherwise, I will refer to them by the portmanteaunym of Quesidio.
I LOVED Sean Connery in "Quesidio!" Mark Harmon was pretty good, too.
Is Bruce Jones the Bizarro Ed Brubaker or Greg Rucka?
