    In The End: Y'all ready for some football? And by football I mean an epic confrontation between Superman and his arch-enemy Lex Luthor. The set-up has been beautiful, now I'm ready for the payoff. The addition of Zod's name brings up some intriguing questions about the Sunstone and its origins. It would have been nice for the writers to have provided a translation for the Kryptonese, but making us do some of the work is part of the fun. Kurt, Geoff, Pete and Renato have written and drawn a fantastic story, and I look forward to seeing how the events will play out. Read Full Review

Johns & Busiek are now streeeeeeeetching things out to fill 8 issues. So with two more parts to go, can we pick up the pace a bit here, guys, please? Read Full Review
