It's a gorgeous-looking, extremely well written book but what most disturbs me about it is the scene between Joker and Red Hood. Somehow, Johns has given Jason Todd his most emotional moment in the span of a few pages than Jason's had in his entire Red Hood run for the past nine years in his own title.

Bendis should not have both Action Comics and Superman. The whole point of having two books about the same character is so that there can be two different takes on the same character in case you're not into one. The only difference between Bendis' AC and Superman is that Action Comics has worse art and worse art than the flagship book.

I feel that they are giving red clud more importance than she has, do we really have to remember everything that happened before in all the chapters? It seems that action comics only serves to promote his other series and that he makes no effort to write this.

You know what I miss? Reading Superman comics. Please get Bendis off Superman and also JRJR either needs to just start doing covers or do a limited series where he can get tons of time to finish his art. This is some of the worst writing and art I've seen in a Superman book in a while. I didn't care for Bendis Superman, but now I think I'm starting to loathe it.

Well, the story is a convoluted mess of ideas that are poorly executed and most characters present do not seem to be acting and talking like themselves. The dialogue is poor, with some having clear errors. Lastly, JRJr’s art does the title no favors and make the issue as a whole mediocre.
