>Dan Jurgensconfirmed Lois & Clark is only an 8 issues mini
When were you when Pre-Flashpoint storylines die?
I was sat at home reading Nu52 trades when Didio ring
'Post-Crisis is kill'
(I bet it's because the same fags who whine about muh previous continuity never bought this book to begin with ah!)
>I bet it's because the same fags who whine about muh previous continuity never bought this book to begin with ah!)
This, none of those people were willing to put their money where their mouths are
It's going to cross over with Superman before it's done. I just hop they don't kill off Supes, it's nice having two Clarks flying about.
They can kill nu-Lois and replace her with milf Lois though.

To be fair, those people may have not known about the book, thanks to DC's spectacular marketing.
Nothing on it yet, but it may be used to reboot the Teen Titans yet (especially since it has been confirmed DC will restart existing books under a new name at #1 in May). Time will tell.
You just KNOW they're going to kill the book, let Old Clark linger into the continuity and then use him back in the next HUGE crisis (9 issues long!) where Old Clark will die in issue #7.
Then all the Nu52 heroes will be "this was a real human bean, let's counter the motherfuckers who did this" and this will be Didio's way of passing the baton from one continuity to another.
The book is written by Jurgens, who's extremely bland, and is set in the New 52 universe. Do you guys really think that the people who argue against the New 52 would buy this? Old Clark doesn't even wear the undies anymore.
I'm not saying this as someone who hates the Nu52, i'm just pointing out the obvious.
>I bet it's because the same fags who whine about muh previous continuity never bought this book to begin with ah!
And in this case I wouldn't blame them, since it's a very different and retarded concept than just telling stories with the previous continuity.
Or alternatively, we'll have new writers coming in that have a hankering for the Bronze Age rather than the Silver Age and we'll get some sweet Legacy characters back.
It'll happen sooner than you think

>"Destroy it all"
Yeah right. This book was DOA the minute they put Jurgens on the title honestly, you'd need a more popular writer to gather interest in this title really.
That actually goes for all the post-Convergence titles honestly (as much as I like Dan Abnett his name is not much of a draw to anyone).
It was also announced as a mini-series and those usually sell poorly as well and it probably didn't help attaching this project to Convergence, which most retailers were apparently burnt out on with having back issues that no one fucking bought.

I wish that were true, but you're delusional if you believe this will ever happen
COIE Kara is still MIA too
Then again I don't think anybody cares that much about another Kara or Barry, they aren't as different from their counterparts as Supes and Parallax are
It's weird to me because it seems most legacy characters seem to start off pretty strong but then have a hard crash as time goes on.
Meanwhile guys like Superman and Batman will have a rough patch here and there but normally manage to bounce back eventually.
Well Superman and Batman specifically are too well known and big of moneymakers to replace permanently or to be written like shit for too long.
But most legacy characters get some spotlight on them and that's when they start growing as a character because they barely have any character to begin with. And they HAVE to be written well or else fans will reject them. Of course they may get rejected regardless if the previous person who held the mantle is well liked and/or got removed/killed unjustly. And after while it just wears off, people upstairs decide to just end the book, the writer of their book finishes their run, something new comes along for fans to care about, etc.
So yeah typically a legacy character starts off strong but then they just hit a wall and get tossed into the main franchise's book, limbo, or a team book. If their individual sales stay strong then the next writer will undoubtedly just repeat the character arc from before or will just fuck them up in order to do something different.
I think its due to the fact legacy character are allowed to mature and evolve
Like Bruce must always be muh batman, whereas Dick can evolve from yougling robin to teenage nightwing to an adult Batman then an adult nightwing running a circus and then a city fair, and finally become a spy.
Same with Jason who can come back from death and then become an angry angsty rage-edge-meister (and could become a homeless transexual fire-inducing mutant if needed).
Legacy characters are awesome because they have a coherent storyline spanning for decades. Then when they hit the conclusion of this storyline (ie: Wally going from Kid Flash to Flash and from single man to family man) there should be the end, neat and sharp. But since Comic Companies need to sell, they use these characters past their coherent lifes and outlive their coherency, hence the shitty characters we end up with.
I'm assuming he must be pretty popular with the higher-ups at DC but certainly not with the comic book viewing audience at large. The sales of Convergence: Lois and Clark are a testament to that.
It's amazing how ASBAR is a tale of a broken Bats to happy to finally share what he has with a mind as juvenile as his own, but only fails to connect to it because of his maddened state
And drives said kid insane without really meaning to because the kid's 12, and then he doesn't know how to fix him.
>tfw accidentally fuck up a kid and the other dies
Someone that hasn't written her before? You do realize that every "best run" on a character is done by a new guy, not someone that previously worked on the character, took a break, and then came back, right?
Frankly, the only things that I genuinely liked from him were Checkmate and Batwoman, and the latter had Williams co plotting, so...
Rest I either find underwhelming as fuck, boring or just okay.
