Damn I feel relief and I am excited as well.We finally learn who is Creepy Kent.It's a really great twist most people won't expect who he is.My only problem is that we got only the twist and the answer we didn't get any clues or answers to other questions.But we got a great cliffhanger.I am so excited about this story like a kid waiting for his vacation to begin.

At last the revelation! It was completely unexpected and it didn't disappoint me at all. But the issue itself is also excellent and the form chosen (separating revelation and explanation) is very judicious. The art is gorgeous, specially those Doug Mahnke fighting scenes.

The event started slowly but now, it gets way more interesting! I really enjoyed the revelation of second Clark Kent and I wasn't disappointed at all. Also, this issue is specially well written, constructed and paced. As an anniversary special, the issue is over-sized and the second story is also great and intriguing. It's one of the best issues of the series!

Good people find shelter, bad people find the good people, bad people and good people fight each other, good people (mostly died) and repeat...The writing is good even though the monologues are somewhat repetitive, the art is excellent but after all these years it has been a lot of the same formula over and over again with cliffhanger after cliffh more

Gets a 2 point deduction from my actual score just for saying something is better than The Cure. (PS. Nothing is better than The Cure)
Gets a 0.5 point bonus for punching Hitler.

The dialogue goes from incredibly bad to outright cringe-y at times, with its only decent point being the art by Quinones.
