So is it just me, or is the Action Comics title just all over the place and confusing? I had really high hopes for it being written by Grant Morrison, but to me it seems like there's no real story from one issue to the next. It started off kind of cool as like a Superman: Year One kind of thing, but now it seems to jump all over the place.

I hope it starts to gel more and provide a smoother story arc.

Haven't read any Action Comics since the relaunch. I have picked up the odd issue of Superman and am liking what I see there. I can imagine being the writer of Sups is a stressful job. Because he's one of those characters that so beloved that you run the risk of pissing everyone off if you don't do a good story.

So, I've read through issue 9 of Action Comics, and I still am not liking it. It's Grant Morrison, it's Superman, so I feel like I have to read it. But it's still all over the place. It's been just a series of one shots to me. I need something to look forward to, and this doesn't do it. I hope it gets going, and fast.

Still feel this way after issue 11. I miss Superman. And I miss giving a shit about Superman. Now I really don't.

I still haven't read any issues of AC but have read most of Superman 1-11. I'm missing issues 3-5. And am really liking it alot. and I was never a big Sups reader before. I may add it to the pull list nexct trip to the shop.

I think I like Superman better than Action, but even it isn't really grabbing me. I mean, he's freaking Superman. He's the reason there are superheroes. So you would think DC would pull out all the stops to make it the best books of their line.

The above post should be deleated as it annoyes me. Now moving along.

Dang it ifI'm not getting into Superman now. The current storyline, that started in issue #9 when Sups saved that Russian sub, is getting very good. I'm liking the whole running gag wuth Clark not being able to hook up with Lois' sister Lucy. And the end when we don't know if The Man From Tomorrow is gong to live is a great cliffhanger. I need to pick up issue 12 and see what happens next.

Oh and i know alot of people will be pissed about the way he puts his suit on now. With "Kryptonian Biotech". But I like it. It's different. But it does take away the whole "Phone Booth" thing.
