Greg Rucka talks sense* on the Superman/Wonder Woman pairing:
How I feel about the decisions Geoff and Jim have made on the book are entirely irrelevant and immaterial. What they have done is to decisively break with the past, and to run headlong into the “new.” Speaking as a writer, they’ve not only opened a can of worms, but they’ve also opened a vast arena of new stories to tell. Some of those stories may well be worth telling. Some of those stories may well be worth repeating, and even cherishing. And, yes, some of those stories may end up best forgotten. And some may argue they’re stories that never needed telling in the first place.
But to condemn DC, and Geoff Johns, and Jim Lee, for doing – at least with regards to Superman, Wonder Woman, and Lois – exactly what the branding of NEW demands seems to me counterproductive. DC is, at least in this instance, walking their talk.
The entire blog post is well worth reading, especially Rucka’s suggestion for what to do if you don’t like the current direction of DC’s titles. It’s good advice, and should be remembered for everything that you’re buying and not enjoying.
(* I tend to agree with Rucka so much that I’m tempted to just start a regular thing called “Greg Rucka Talks Sense” which I just randomly quote him about various topics. That wouldn’t be weird, right…?)
