    Action Comics #874 was a solid read that sets the stage for the exit of Superman from this title. While I have my issues with DC pulling Superman off of Action Comics, I have to say that I am intrigued by what they have in store for us. Action Comics #874 is a great jumping on point if you have decided to follow this story of what happens in Metropolis while Superman is gone. Read Full Review

Most of the focuses of these tales, particularly Guardian, feel shoehorned in to all this Blackest Night business, and I have a tough time believing the majority of these features will prove to be anything more than wastes of valuable pages and annoying interruptions. I hope I'm wrong. Read Full Review
