The clark/jon part seemed way off to me. Clark is more in tune with jon than this and Jon is way off! Jon has become a kid who is constantly talking back and not listening, which may be normal for a 10 year old, but not yhis 10 year old. If he acted like this before, supes would have forbid him from "playing" with damian.

myconius - Jul 13, 2018

great point DC Stuff! this change in Jon's behavior did not feel at all organic. it was a sharp left turn that sacrificed characterization. i mean even if Jon was just freaking out over his "possible future" we'd still see some glimmer of the how he acted before. people just do NOT completely change into a WHOLE other being. it's just that Bendis didn't bother or care enough about Jon to do his homework on him is all. at least his version of Lois seemed ok.

some of the action panels in the beginning with the fight between Cassandra vs. Karma were laid out really cool,
but the art really does suffer very badly in this issue.
the heads and faces are particularly distracting.
also, some of the hands looked like wet spaghetti.

the story is developing slowly, but it does have me intrigued to know who Karma is, how he knows Bruce, more

i really enjoyed the pacing of this comic and the way it was written.
not particularly fond of the art. it's very inconsistent, and lacks a feel of solidity and structure. though the mood and tone of the comic were handled pretty well. not sure if that's more-so the inker and colorist though.

That is a very valid comparison with "The Crow"

seeing Eric Draven act as tortured is more suitable as his tragedy had just happened. Batman has had years to focus his grief into being disciplined. becoming a master detective, tactician, scientist, martial artist. he'd have never accomplished any of those things had he been wallowing in self pity the whole time.

Yeah, his take on Jon is a far cry from the great character a far better writer built up and developed. It reads as if bendis purposely misconstrued the work of more able people to force a ludicrous idea to fit into this book. I only hope his tenure on Action Comics and Superman is short.

Bendis's take on Jon is just horrible!!! did not like the treatment at all. it is pretty sad that Jurgens and Tomasi rescued Superman from the awful interpretation we were getting from the New 52, only to each be booted off their books at the 50 issue mark. any idea what they are planning to do with Tomasi or Jurgens now that they are no longer writing Superman?

It almost seems as the entire point of the mini was to leave a Superman without present attachments and somehow explain why the trunks are back. The former was a choice that basically negates the stellar work of Jurgens, Gleason and Tomasi in favor of whatever inane, banal, overly contrived and terrible stories bendis wants to tell. As far as the latter, there were ways to do this that were not nearly as absurd and dumb. But since it’s bendis here, continuity and characterization be damned.

myconius - Jul 5, 2018

i can definitely feel your frustration to what Bendis is doing to Superman. i haven't been reading Superman long enough to know all the history, but seeing the changes from the rare bits i've read of Tomasi's Superman to what Bendis is doing... i'm not thrilled with seeing Lois & Jon shipped off to god knows where. i'm still on the fence if i want to continue his run. MoS #6 left me with an enormous headache. though i'm sure Batman#50 also had a hand in that as well.
