Because Forerunner can only be nu-Harbinger (someone owns a thesaurus), and that brings to mind PARIAH, and how about, um, Susan Powter Lady, not to mention SEXLESS Lois Lane in a purple dress, and, um, okay issue #8 was classic when the Flash DIED, and Spectre hand was cool, but COME ON.

Not nearly enough Haunted Tank.

Also, the Monitors have Osborn hair.

There was way too much '80s hair among the major players in COIE.

Also: NO GREEN ARROW FINGER (I think).

My mom actually bought me the entire mini for my birthday when I was 10-ish. This is not a reason to hate on this.

At least in Millennium and Zero Hour, GA would say something, "Um, hey guys, I just shoot arrows, mmmkay?"

Dr. Superman, Wednesday, 16 May 2007 04:46 (twelve years ago) link

and then "What right do we have to judge if this 'Earth-Prime'-privelidged narrative is more or less valid than our own?"

This is the thread where I say I had my fill of George Perez by 1980. Fuckin' hate that guy.

That Dead Supergirl cover that won greatest comic cover ever in some poll recently - well, it actually kinda sucks.

Wasn't that the DC Nation poll? Figures.

Also, the novelization is worse.

The greatest comic cover ever involves a choice between drowning and a certain group of giant scorpions I could mention.

A-true.

A friend bought me Crisis as a present in a "this will really knock your socks off" kind of way. I found it literally unreadable. The art is quite pleasant in and of itself, but the fussy layouts make trying to extract meaning from the pages an uphill struggle.

You mean this one?

I think he does.

an aside - that cover becomes even better if, using the magic of photo shop, you remove the words GIANT SCORPIONS and replace them with the name of one of your friends.

lol, yep

I was looking at CRISIS last night... mainly thinking about whether I would try and read it again or just give it to charidee. Me beour looked at it and commented "It's very emo".
