    "Adventures of Superman" #40 is yet another enjoyable celebration of Superman in this digital edition. While Landis and Jock may not be the top combination to tackle the first meeting between these characters, the story they deliver is certainly worth a read. As unexpected as this matchup is, this comic is able to provide some surprises along the way as it sets up an explosive cliffhanger dangling from the rooftop ledge of the Daily Planet. Luckily, readers only have to wait a week to find out what happens next. Read Full Review

    Adventures of Superman #40 gives us the Joker and the Man of Steel so what could go wrong?  Well, Max Landis' Joker seems a little to eager to prove his insanity, but Jock's art is stellar.  I hope the writing catches up next issue because if it does we'll have something really special.  For now, buy this issue and just stare at's worth it.

    Max Landis, for all his claims of being someone who really understands Superman, is unable to project his voice on page, or even the Joker's. Couple that with Jock's grunge kinetic artwork that fails to work with a story about two people talking, and you've got something that simply doesn't work. Even though Landis' story has some interesting ideas, it fails to take off and results in a dull affair, the mediocrity of it heightened by the fact that it is the work of two of the more talented people in their respective industries.
