Henceforth, Jacowboy, I shall call thee brother :facepunch:t3:

It’s absolutely a relationship. The problem is, it’s a parasocial one:

And it’s always going to mostly remain one-sided, why?

  • Don’t buy the book as consumer / fan: Sales go down, company cancels the book - you no longer have stories of that character to buy.
  • Buy the book despite misgivings: Company makes money and the profit validates the very decision you disagree with.
  • Buy the book without sense of attachment: Sounds like it might be a good idea, except it’s a very passive setting, you’ll take what you’re given. Company makes money.

There is perhaps one safe path through this minefield - buy the runs you like, ignore the continuity whirl, because that’s another device to keep you in - so you flip it from engaging with the material on the company provider terms and instead do so on your own. In effect you’re still a fan of character X, but you’re putting your consumer aspect first and fan second, so as to avoid buying anything uncritically.

This is basically what I try to do, while having some self-admitted blind spots where I’ll give them more of a chance than maybe I should.

They teased this in the last issue of Superman. I’m really liking Bendis on the Superman books but this makes me a little wary. I really love Jon and the family aspect that was introduced in the books with Rebirth and his relationship with Damian. I don’t want to see that wasted.

The current Adventures of the Super Sons all takes place between the end of their previous series, Super Sons #16, and the wrap up book for Rebirth era Superman, Superman Special #1. So it all takes place in the past. See the note in the bottom right corner from issue #1.

Solicitations for February 2019 (w/Previews Text)

Is Female Furies meant to be the follow up to Mister Miracle?


#4732

Don’t think so.
That joke at the end of the Mister Miracle #12 was just a reference to the original final issue of Mister Miracle, which ended with the same announcement.

It really is a short break, two issues or one month with the double shipping. The sub heading makes it sound like he may eventually return one day. :smile:

Until the next storyline…


#4738

That’s what “forever” means in comics.


#4739

Are we all agreed that Jim Gordon as Batman never, ever happened?


#4740

If it removes the Gordon mohawk too, yeah.


#4741

Oh, that goes without saying…!
