Thanks to Superman's intervention, the denizens of Bizarro World have turned on the ersatz Superman, and Bizarro is murderously vexed! But Pa Kent is a hostage, which means Superman's just painted himself into a corner! The 3-part ''Escape from Bizarro World'' continues with part 2!

    Overall, Johns and Donner deliver once more with this issue. Eric Powells artwork fits this story very well and helps bring all of the elements together. This issue and story-arc is a great example of how to utilize a superstar creative team. With all the different incarnations of Bizarro throughout all types of media, it is a bit refreshing to see a more classic version of the character. Read Full Review

    This issue left me wondering what other warped imaginings the creative team has up their sleeves for Bizarro. Ill tune in again next issue. Read Full Review

    Thankfully, Powell is on board to transform Johns' rather conventional and unsurprising script into twenty-two pages of beautiful comic book art. If a lesser artist had handled this book, I certainly wouldn't be following it with half the enthusiasm. In the long run, I think this book's greatest accomplishment will be making more people pick up Powell's endlessly hilarious Goon. Read Full Review
