    So let's talk opinions. This was an awesome action-packed issue. Great fight scenes. I like the way the Plutonian was actually surprised at the beginning. He really thinks that no one anywhere can beat him. I guess one should never be overconfident. Leads to humbling defeats sometimes. So now with the Plutonian out of the picture, I assume Modeus will be the focus of the next batch of books. Should be interesting. I'm a big fan of intelligent enemies over super powered ones. Artistically it was pretty good, except the covers were kind of weak. The action scenes were drawn very nicely. Overall, a good book. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it. Read Full Review

    If anyone thought this series was just going to be an one-note, "evil Superman" series, Waid and Krause have taken this series in unexpected and sometime shocking directions - which is why this comic always pops to the top of my reading stack. Read Full Review

    If you hate decompressed storytelling and writing for the trade, this is an issue (and series) for you. Since slowing the car down to accept new readers around issue #12, Waid has made cool things happen about 5 issues in a row. Read Full Review

    This issue goes quickly, and possibly too quickly, but it does feel like the end of an act in the overall tale. When pondering its quality you have to realize it raises one massive question: What happens next? In this serialized medium, that question is sometimes the most important. Next you might ask yourself, do I really want to know? If the story is good enough, you will. I'll be back next month, so I guess we have our answer. The quality continues and the twists just keep coming. Read Full Review
