I like big books.

Superman: Emperor Joker (Superman (DC Comics))

Superman: Emperor Joker - Jeph Loeb, J.M. DeMatteis, Mark Schultz, Joe Kelly, Ed McGuinness, Mike S. Miller, Doug Mahnke, Kano, Duncan Rouleau, Todd Nauck, Carlo Barberi, Scott McDaniel Campy and overrated. It seems unfair to give Loeb credit for all of this. Emperor Joker is a nine issue arc written by many different people. The Loeb parts live up to expectation and he writes some pretty good Joker dialogue as well as funnily and eerily re-imagines a world fashioned by the king of insanity. The rest... Well, the rest is puerile. I think I'm finally just going to have to accept that there are really only about five or six really good Superman stories out there, but man do those jewels shine. I don't understand how so many people could fail to do well with such a great character.
