Not quite a talented trio

The Philadelphia Daily News talks about Geoff Johns's, Richard Donner's and Adam Kubert's take on Action Comics:
When it was announced that DC superstar writer Geoff Johns and "Superman: The Movie" director Richard Donner were teaming up to write the Man of Steel's comic book adventures, most fans were giddy with glee.
Well, I'll hand it to them there, that they admit that it was most fans, which probably means not all. Because no, I can't say I'm one of those who looked forward to this run. Not after what Johns did with the Turtle in the pages of the Flash, Captain Carrot's Zoo Crew in the pages of Teen Titans, and couple of other things to boot. Put another way, I've lost faith in Johns as a writer, because I realize he's no different, and thus, no better, than a lot of other recent writers.

Is it any wonder I can't get as excited about Johns' and Donner's run on Action Comics as I'd like to be?

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
