No story to speak of. Lots of clumsy political posturing. More of the weirdly dysfunctional Lois and Clark relationship from the Bendis books. Dreadful art. Good luck to anyone who is planning to struggle through another 11 issues of this.

READ RUMBLE - Jul 3, 2019

Calling someone an ‘asshat’ because they have a different opinion than you is wrong. Pseudnik has a right to their opinion and they didn’t personally attack someone. Frankly, Bendis’ Lois and Clark relationship to me seems odd and out of character, so I stopped reading supe and action, but will give this a try due to Rucka. I think most people know Rucka is a pretty political guy and it will show in his stories, so I’m assuming this is what they meant by ‘political posturing’

Good issue, but some ideas / characterizations seem weird like why such a bad hairstyle for WW or I don’t really buy Ivy helping them. Or what’s the point of big baby GL? And what I also didn’t like is the treatment of Darkseid once again, whom we see beheaded just to make the newest villain Omega ( who might be one of the batfamily- hopefully Jason not Damien) look cool. At least Snyder gav more

Reminded how Lois abandons her family to write a book from a hotel room and now know to smoke and drink. Completely ignores the fact they are parents. The Supergirl part did not read well. I actually like the art overall.

Is it possible to rate this comic higher than a 10?

Juann Cabal is an excellent Spider-Man artist. His style and panelling brings the Marvel Universe to life in a unique and extraordinary way. Some of his action poses are stuff, but that's something to improve upon over time. And since this book is mostly monthly, I'm expecting him to be on the book for the long run and not alternate ar more
