One of my biggest surprise reads in years! By the time I started reading it, it was on Year 4, and I couldn't put it down until I was up to that point! If you enjoy Elseworlds tales, this one will be right up your alley as it centers on a Superman (and a few other mainstays) gone bad. If you enjoyed Mark Wade's Irredeemable, you won't have difficulty liking this one either. It doesn't require more

Brian K. Vaughan can do no wrong. Seriously though... there is a short list of comic writers who I anxiously await anything by them whether it be Marvel, DC, Image or another independent. Vaughan is one of those writers. This series keeps his streak alive! There's not much I can say that hasn't been covered already. It's a terrific sci-if drama with characterization done so well you can feel more

I did it again! Once again I plunged into the Teen Titans hoping to find that same magic I read in the 2003 series started by Geoff Johns. What has it been? Three new launches for this series? And everytime I make it less distance from Issue #1. Issue #3 is where I got off the Teen Titans bus this time. I was disappointed from the start but this issue slowed to a crawl as the Teen Titans trie more

Damian is still the best new character introduced by DC in the last decade and Jon (aka Superboy) might be close behind! Super Sons has the same potential as every great Damian team-up in the character's short life. If you enjoyed his earlier outbursts with Batgirl, Supergirl or The Teen Titans -- before the convoluted death and resurrection mess -- this series is more of the same comedy gold. more
