    I cannot believe how much I enjoyed this issue of Superman. The Man of Steel while being sympathetic does not hold back to save the planet. Arion's role in the story hints at some unforeseen consequences, and the relationship between Callie and Superman along with a strong setting give the world greater weight than the cobbled together thing left behind after Infinite Crisis.

    Kurt Busiek & Carlos Pacheco have made this book among the best that DC has on the shelves today. Period. Anything else I can say to describe it may not be sufficient. This title is just that good. Read Full Review

    Superman #656 was a bit of a generic and uninteresting read for me. I always prefer excellent character development, dialogue and solid storytelling over a massive mindless brawl. Therefore, this issue was just not my cup of tea. Superman is still a good title. Every title has an issue that reads like filler and Superman #656 was that issue for me. I'm sure the next issue will be much more stimulating. Read Full Review
