When Sugar and Spike need a babysitter, this looks like a job for--Clark Kent? But when an explosion at Star Labs threatens the city, Clark must find a way to balance his newfound responsibilities with his duty to Metropolis as the Man of Steel!

    Adventures of Superman has been many things.  Serious, action-packed, thought provoking and now with chapter 42, Hilarious.  Clark babysitting Sugar and Spike is fun on it's own, but throw in Atomic skull and you get Adventures in Babysitting meets Bugs Bunny.  I really enjoyed this one-shot for what it was, good fun.

    Even though the conclusion to Superman's fight with the Atomic Skull is telegraphed, it's still fun to see for the sake of being fun. This might be one of the silliest installments of "Adventures of Superman" to date, but it certainly delivered on two fronts: it gave DC a chance to publish Sugar and Spike again; and it put Phil Hester in the artist's chair for a Superman adventure. I'm not necessarily feeling the need for another Sugar and Spike appearance any time too quickly, but if Hester wants to return for more "Adventures of Superman," I certainly won't object.
