THE GOOD:

-This was good. I liked it. It's definitely my least favorite issue thus far, but still, not bad.

-The art was pretty great. I'm loving the look of this book.

-I think the first page was my favorite part. Amazing emotion, with very few words. Well done.

Only time will tell if this event is based on a shallow gimmick, or is it something surprisingly deep and complex. Look at Injustice - a simple concept quickly evolved into a long multiversal conflict. DCeased has all the potential to become a new elseworldwith its own mythos, but it also can end up being a self contained one-off story.

The story didn't progress much in this issue, whic more

This sure was a thing that exists. I think Lois is being insanely irresponsible, and her character usually isn't that. The stuff with Jimmy was fine, although Perry White comes across like J. Jonah Jameson, if he didn't know how to properly berate someone. The hell is "Out of this multiverse"? I'm severly uninterested in the plot revolving around the blue bombs, assumedly set by Leviathan. This is more

From the small shot of Jimmy’s tablet you can see him working in the Jameson/Parker dynamic. The blue bombs must also be silent because I don’t buy an entire building blowing up in Metropolis and Superman not even noticing what’s happening, it isn’t Gotham after all. The Lois/Sam Lane scene was pure contrived drama for the sake of “future” stories I bet, but feels so forced it just doesn’t work. You clip show analogy was particularly apt.

YourGreenMuse - Jan 31, 2019

I'm not too familiar with how Perry White should be written, but even if it is similar to JJJ, Bendis did a bad job here. And yeah, they made a big point of Superman's hearing in the first arc, so they must be silent. And yeah, I bet that Lois scene will cause all sorts of petty drama down the line.

This issue started off promising. Steve Epting is a solid choice and does a remarkable job of depicting the characters emoting. Seeing a snippet of Jimmy's crazy life was amazing. He's been MIA lately and I always appreciate when he's included. Jimmmy and Clark's interactions were amusing and I also enjoyed Perry and Jimmy's scene.

Superheroes for Hire - Jan 17, 2019

I dropped the series and Action Comics after the AC issue where Lois plays dumb about living a fake marriage. Bendis clearly didn't want to write about a functionally married Superman or about a fun-loving 10 year old son of the world's most recognized hero. And Lois for all her strong character was shown to have no care for either husband nor son. And to boot, Jon is now going to have to fit in with a universe he's now 7 years too old for. I'm out till a new team.

Agreed. It hurts to say this as a lifelong Superman fan, but I'm strongly leaning towards dropping these books as well. The books have been staying in my to read pile longer and longer because I dread what I'll see next.
