After barely fighting off Intergang with the help of Metropolis, the city itself in the form of a dragon avatar, City Boy realizes the more he taps into his powers, the louder it is inside his head…hearing and feeling everything about the city and its history all at once, nonstop. So, he goes to ask for help from someone else who hears all of Metropolis all the time: Superman!

    Greg Pak's script is filled with compelling dialogue, although again, it falls into a frustrating rhythm in terms of revealing things about Cameron and his character. Minkyu Jung's art is still consistent, especially when the plot gets a bit more fantastical. Read Full Review
