It's a slam-bang, knockdown epic fight in the sewers of Metropolis in this fourth and final chapter of "Codename: Patriot"! What are the stakes, and who are the players? Everything and everyone, Superfans! Except one key player is missing Superman! He has to stop the shooter from taking yet another course of action that would cause the situation between Earth and New Krypton to grow exponentially worse. Which, of course, is just what General Lane wants

    The Superman Family of books are still the best on the market right now as far as mainstream superhero tales go. Theyve shown little sign of slowing down, and are building to a feverish climax.

    "Codename: Patriot" was supposed to pump up the Superman titles again and get things rolling, but it feels the other way around. It's made me feel less-than-charitable towards "Superman" and "Action Comics" and wish that "Supergirl" and "Superman: World of New Krypton" could somehow pull entirely free of their department-mates. This was a massive disappointment. Supposedly things are going to pick up with some more big stories, soon, and I sincerely hope that's the case. At the moment, though, "Superman" seems to be determined to make its readers really miss the titular character. Read Full Review
