Filler. More filler from King. At this point the entire 62 issue run has more filler than actual relevant content, and I wish that was a joke.
And also, 2 more public domain stories were just used as substitutes for this issue's lack of any story - one about three little pigs, and the other being the myth of Pygmalion and Galatea. Just put the series out of its misery, because there's 38 issu more

I appreciate Tom just lazily saying outright Harley is as good as Batman in only 2 issues of this, rather than limply trying to convince us as he did with Catwoman over 50 monotonous issues of Batman.

Sook's art is breathtaking, but even that can't save this dumpster fire. There are far too many plot holes. Lois' written completely out of character and her reasons for not telling Clark she's back are flimsy at best and ignores two years of continuity. Clark goes along with this barely questions anything. He doesn't really seem to care that his son is with a genocidal maniac. Neither of them co more

Yeah, being suspicious doesn’t really have anything to do with being fearful. Hadn’t really paid much attention to that but you’re right. Should definitely have been superstitious.
