"Back in Action" part 1! Superman is back, but is it really him? As Earth faces a powerful new menace, Superman contends with heroes wary that he might not be who he says he is. Guest-starring the Teen Titans, Nightwing and Firestorm!
In The End: Now that's how you end the first chapter of a story arc; a giant alien hovering next to the Golden Gate Bridge. In all seriousness, I thoroughly enjoyed this issue. The Dave Gibbons cover, with its mock tabloid appearance, was great, and the story had a good mix of humor and action. I will admit that I'm glad that Kurt handled the dialogue as I believe that he is the stronger of the two writers working on this story. Fabian is good, but to me Kurt is better. While Superman seems to be focusing on Clark in Metropolis and the world, this arc appears to be working on a more galactic level. As a reader of both titles, I appreciate the balance in that. While I am looking forward to seeing Geoff Johns and Richard Donner coming on to this title, I am equally looking forward to see how this story arc plays out. Read Full Review
Action Comics #841 is nice mindless brain candy. If you enjoy just a quick easy read involving a silver age style storyline then you will definitely enjoy this issue. I hope that the rest of this story arc will be more engaging. What I am really looking forward to is the next story arc beginning with Action Comics #844 by Richard Donner and Geoff Johns with art provided by Adam Kubert. It should be fantastic.
