LOL Fear itself SUCKED

Once they started adding decimal points, comic book numbering became truly meaningless. In a few years every issue will be #1, #0 or #0.1.

I don’t like renumbering. I like comics to have a sense of history. I like to think of them as the same publications that were once written by Stan Lee, Siegel, Kane, Finger etc.

There’s an unnecessary redundancy in your Jeph Loeb panel. It says “every terrible story I’ve ever done.” But every story written by Jeph Loeb in his life has been terrible, so that makes “terrible Jeph Loeb story” a redundant term. You could have just written “every story I’ve ever done.” That way it doesn’t give the mistaken implication that there have been non-terrible Jeph Loeb stories in existence.

T: Oh, come on man, surely Loeb handed in some terrific stories.
They couldn’t be ALL that bad.

I liked the Batman halloween books he did with Tim Sale and the Challengers of the Unknown.
The Witching Hour with Chris Bachalo and Batman: Hush with Jim Lee were good.

Now, the Superman/Batman series, errr, not good.

I liked Loeb’s Challengers of the Unknown. Annnnd … well, OK, that’s it. And lord knows it’s not because I haven’t read a lot of his other stuff.

Tom: Don’t get T started! :)

Good one, guys!

now fans know what joshs idea of hell is like to be trapped in. including jeph loeb wanting to write sequels. to all his bad stuff.

Batman Hush was good?!?! *Backs away slowly*

Loeb wrote Spider Man : Blue

Once upon a time he was a good writer

LOL’ed at the Granny Goodness thing, then cried at its plausibility.

That is totally how Granny Goodness would look in the new 52. Huh-larious.

@Captain Awesome

The quality of Spider-man Blue is evidence that Stan Lee was a good writer. Not Loeb. (Ditto on all of the colour titles)

Exactly. Anything good on the color titles came from the original writers. Loeb’s contributions sucked. I’d rather just read the original Lee/Romita issues than read the watered down Loeb renditions.

Ha! That was pretty good.

HAHAHAHAH!!! It’s funny because it’s true.

Sean and Brandon know us so well . . . .

I’m afraid someone at DC will read this and steal the Granny Goodness idea.
