moothemagiccow: Ok I've looked up four comic writers in the last hour and they always always look the exact same - chubby, bald and beard.

What the hell

Add Kurt Busiek to that list; also one of the best writers left in comics these days.

And yes, this does indeed suck. I wasn't exactly a fan of PAD's run on Supergirl, but he made the best of the turd sandwich that DC gave him with the whole Matrix situation.

Wish I could find a scan of the comics page from the first run of Young Justice, where the team has a campout while the adult heroes discuss the situation. While playing 'Truth or Dare', the team find out that Superboy isn't going to be growing any older; he's stuck at a physical age of 16. The girls all remark on how sad that his, but Kon just says 'Are you kidding? It's great! never having to grow up, never having to pay taxes', ect. ect.; he does the whole Peter Pan thing. Then, after the adults have had their conference and go to tell the kids of their decision, Superboy's the only one left awake. And one of the last panels after Nightwing leaves is Superboy sitting under a tree, musing 'To die would be the greatest adventure of all, I think'; one of Peter Pan's more (in)famous lines from the book.

That bit still gives me chills at how well it was all set up and written.
