It's been an honor and a privilege talking about best boy and his pals with you all for the last two years /co/mrades.

So real talk. Where does Kenan and the JLC go from here? Do they just get forgotten about? Will Bendis kill him off? Will Kenan just be regulated to occasional appearances until they stick him on a team book with the rest of the JLC forgotten about completely?

I really do feel like this is the end of an era. While I do applaud DC for cancelling the book for a few more issues I feel like they could've keep it keep going for a while more yet. Yes it's sales were pretty low (about 10k) but that's still more than all the YA and a bunch of minis and Cyborg sell. They could afford to have one more low selling book, ESPECIALLY when it's a diversity book that people actually love and could continue to set up things for a Chinese market. They should've spent more time and effort marketing the book, maybe even have it be involved with an actual book selling series. Should've done JL vs JLC or something.

I'm just really sad that it's ending and I seriously doubt we'll ever see their proper return ever again.

Also here's Yang's thoughts on the whole thing: http://geneyang.com/the-final-issue-of-new-super-man-comes-out-this-week

>>101082653
It's amazing how much more interesting this Aqua Man is then the original version; in origin, looks, and power set. Shame this is probably the last we'll see of him and the others.

This is such a brilliant idea. Yang would absolutely nail that delicate balance of humor and real heroism and pathos that Ted and Jaime were all about. And then we'd get more Booster, which is always good.

This is probably my second favorite message on how to deal with the end of a series that you love.

First being Legion's lesson at the end of X-Men Legacy that the only things that really matter are the things that are allowed to end.
>>
>>101085414
Hopefully we get some expansion on that, since it meant serious shit must have gone down for either the Great Ten to go rouge and join the JLC or for the JLC to have to team up with the Government again.
>>
>>101084715
i like this style

>>101082653
Yang really is the good mirror universe version of Te'Nashi Coates when it comes to celebrity authors brought into a cape comic to get press.
>>
>>101085515
Frankly he's one of the few wrieters who'd be able to pull off a new Justice League International series (which could easily have some of the JLC on the roster too).

I hope DC keeps Yang on the payroll beyond that Superman versus Klan story.
If Jim Lee is really taking over, he'll probably keep Yang around. I hope.

I know this may sound cheesy but I'm a Chinese American who despite being unable to get into the culture and language, I really appreciated how the book depicted the Chinese
Not glorifying or demonizing them as a whole and just have them be human beings with their own flaws and virtues like what I saw during my numerous family visits.
I also went up to my mother one day and asked her how do you say Grass Mud Horse in Chinese
She was pissed and we had a few laughs afterwards

I haven't read the Terrifics or any of the X-books to see if things leverage or skew things more, but it seems like DC is going down on quality while Marvel is going up again; and I'm probably ignoring/forgetting some other books's existence. I wonder if the looming shadow of Benis is the cause for this.
