    In The End: I wrote something similar with Verheiden's last Superman issue, but the sentiment remains the same: I am going to miss Gail on this series. While I wasn't totally behind all of the stories she wrote, Gail proved that she had a clear handle on the character and knew what made him tick. Her stories were always character driven and had an honesty that I appreciated. This last issue may not have been her best, but it was still a great read. I'm going to miss Byrne as well. John Byrne was the reason I came into the Superman books and having him around for awhile was very nice. His work, inked mostly by Nelson, was a lot of fun and had a great deal of storytelling to it. Plus very few artists can handle an action sequence the way Byrne does. This has been a really excellent run on the series, and while I'm pretty jazzed at the next phase in the character's life, it is also a little sad to see this particular run end. Read Full Review
