@doc-holiday: I totally agree with you. Instead of placing a female in place of a male character, they should embrace a female character. What they're doing actually shows that they lack enough confidence in female characters to take risks with them instead of playing off of the success of other characters. However, I also believe that DC has a habit of making similar bad decisions.

@squalleon: That is very interesting. I looked in the forum, and I have to say that, if DC is only going to have one Superman, there's a rather odd split between a suit with a yellow belt and red boots and one with a red belt and blue boots. I personally like both belts equally, but I do like the red boots a bit more than the blue. However, the blue ones still have an interesting appeal.

That's just too bad about the artist. I'm not sure that I've seen enough to get a good idea of what art we'll see in Action Comics, but I really wish it would be the same artist as the cover. The art seems to be just perfect for Superman. It has a sort of cheery glow that just fills me with excitement for the story. It doesn't really seem to be a good fit for Batman to me, but maybe it will work great somehow. Which Batman book is the artist going to be working on? I might like to check it out just for the art.

@jonny_anonymous: I'm confused. Why are they blue in Action Comics? I really hope it's because one is New 52 Superman and because the other is pre-52.

@squalleon, @apokos7: Well, I personally hope that New 52 Superman sticks around. I'd love to get to know both New and Pre 52 versions. Anyway, other than which Superman we get, the main thing that I have to say about these covers is that I love the art. I especially love the cover for Action Comics. Superman looks amazing, and that includes the face. The main problem that I have with the art is that some of these artists just can't seem to draw faces. Like I said, though, that doesn't seem to be the case for the artist on Action Comics.

@laabitres: Are they really? Man, New 52 was when I started reading comics. That Superman has become my Superman. Do you know that they're getting rid of him, or do you just assume?

I haven't really been keeping up with DC or even comics in general, and I just have to say that DC is confusing me. They did "New 52," which was actually where I started comics. After that, they did something (I don't remember what) that ended it. Now they're doing this thing called "Rebirth," and I just have no idea what's going on. It seems like a big mess with constantly canceled plans, but, hopefully, I'm just not getting the picture. It would be awesome if they really knew what they were doing and had a real, slightly long term plan that would stick. I also hope that they don't have a super strict plan that will require the editorial to absolutely control the writers. I really like the idea of writers having the ability to make their stories and make them well.
