    A perfect example of this is towards the end of the comic which features the use of a Superman sheet that features comic book panels. For many, the use of this sheet might be overlooked, but its coloring makes it stand out, almost screaming at the reader to be noticed. It's small details like this that adds so much to the story. Here, a symbol of American ideals, freedom, justice, AMERICAN way, can't be ignored and underlies a theme that's been threaded throughout a lot of the series. A perfect example of imagery that enhances the dialogue. Read Full Review
