I really hope this book succeeds financially and hits the numbers. I want this ongoing to go forever. This is the best Jon has been written since Super Sons, and it's a perfect introduction to a new Superman for a new generation. It's like Tom Taylor listened to what the fans wanted and also catered to new Superman fans in order to show what Superman should be. It's literally everything I want more

Hey so, Merlyn's review is stupid, and here's why:

First he complains about Jon Kent not using the classic Superman phrase. Even though it shouldn't bother a human being as much as it bothers him, there's a good reason beyond just L E F T I S M.

Just as it's within his rights to criticize these comics however he wants to (I kind of disagree with this wording - we're on an internet forum and therefore subject to moderation. This is a private platform, not a public one - I get what you mean), it is within my rights to use my platform at my own discretion.

@Mingthemerciless Hey so, in light of the IPCC climate report, I just want to stress that continued dismissal of anthropogenic climate change will end in deadly consequences, almost assuredly now.
