    . . .but it puzzles me how and why critics anticipate what approach and philosophy a writer will take to an upcoming book and character when the fact of the matter is each book and character is usually quite different to the other.


      I would agree if were a writer like Roy Thomas, Chuck Dixon, Christopher Priest. They've displayed the ability to adapt to the character they work with, and have an elasticity of talent to do so. Bendis has not shown me that ability. His strength is dialogue and his stories are generally character driven. He writes super-humans, not super-heroes. He deconstructs well established characters. He rarely builds on what is there, as he avoids continuity. Now, a writer with Bendis' ability on Superman? A character who has been deconstructed ad infinitum and ad nauseam? A character where plot is equally necessary to drive the story? I hope you can see why precautious.

      Still, I'll be reading. It's what I do. ;\)
