When Lois tries to run the story that will clear Flamebird and Nightwing once and for all, she finds herself blocked at every turn. With the world's anti-Kryptonian sentiment escalating to a near-frenzy, not even being General Lane's daughter will keep her safe!Plus, to the shock and horror of Flamebird, the problems with Nightwing's uncontrolled aging reach a critical juncture! And in part 6 of the new co-feature, Captain Atom squares off against his old adversary Major Force just as some troubling memories start to resurface one word: Monarch!

    Overall, Action Comics continues to deliver. Not only does it live up to the expectations of being one of DC Comics flagship titles, it continues to be one of the best written and drawn superhero books on the market. Read Full Review

    I do think that the rapid aging storyline was swept under the rock a bit too easily. If Chris is cured by this, why didn't he completely revert to his 10-year-old body rather than stopping at the 20-year-old version? And another "superpowerful yellow sun ray bath" as a cure? Seems a bit predictable. Still, there were more ups than downs here. And I really appreciate Pere Perez' clean style. Read Full Review

    Meh, this comic really wasn't anything to write home about. The only good to come out of this book was the fact that Nightwing was finally cured of his rapid aging problem. The stuff with Lois and the Daily Planet really didn't move me, nor did the stuff with Pillings and Flamebird Read Full Review

    At the end of the day, "Action Comics" #884 may be getting close to the end of the story of Nightwing and Flamebird, but I feel like it's a slightly missed opportunity. Continually shifting artists and crossovers certainly didn't help the title, and I feel like we're going to leave them knowing little more than we did at the start. Ah well. Read Full Review
