So jumping onto this heap of garbage since it was an over-sized " anniversary " and has some spec potential . First off, for as atrocious Bendis Superman has been, Ivan Reis still kills it on the art as well as Ferreria's colors. Sad to see it wasted on this run.

But even with great art and colors, just from reading the first 3 pages of this comic, I already was not enjoying this new ar more

This has probably been the best issue in a while for me. I think I’ve discovered my issue with JRJR art is that he cannot do faces. I loved the double page at the end where the Superman family arrives at Whisper. There was another panel or two I really enjoyed, and that’s when I realized there were basically no faces in them.

This issue actually had some good plot movement, but m more

People seem to be spewing nepotism which I mean is a valid complaint but if anything the response indicates why this kinda stuff happens. Henry Abrams is being criticized quite intensely for his first outing, no doubt because of his lineage. I mean who wouldnt help their kid out though, its not like we know his writing sucks but he keeps getting books.

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’
