The first story was similar to Superman vs. Muhammad Ali, and it was great. The second story -- Lois made a perfectly logical decision. I enjoyed both, it felt very Bronze Age, like World's Finest.

Ugh, if they wrote Clark as any more of a door mat for Lois to use and abuse I don't know how they could do it. The B story was shoehorned in there to feature Lois, last time I checked she was a supporting character in a Superman book not the other way around. I'm glad you enjoyed it but for myself, there just wasn't enough there to rate the book as anything more that a "Filler" issue and story arc,

Seems like most Superman fans liked this issue -- great art, fun stories. Why did you hate it? It's a 3-part mostly out-of-continuity throwback story by a guest writer, so don't expect it to relate to Josh Williamson's series.

RKS - Jul 15, 2024

I'll start with the good. The art in the 1st story was good. That's about it. The art in the back up story was bad. I'm more a fan of detailed realistic styles of the late 1990's though. As for the story. It's a flawed concept as it is a flashback story basically you know that there are no real risks as it is an out of continity story, I get they only have 3 issues but it felt rushed. As for the back up. If the goal was to make Lois unlikable then mission accomplished.

Pretty average issue really. What Williamson was thinking wasting about 4 perfectly good pages with a boring unnecessary talk between Superman and Lobo is beyond me though.

Honestly, if you think the art is bad, you may as well stare at a blank page because you'll get just as much out of that.

Birds of Prey #9

By: Kelly Thompson, Jonathan Case
Released: May 8, 2024

If the Birds of Prey have one mission, it's protect Barbara Gordon at all costs, and that mission is...not going great. Dinah and her team search for Barbara in this strange new world that seems specifically designed to trip them up. Many mysteries lurk in the dark of this world, and some of them don't even want to kill you...probably.

I took him getting a job more as he’s stuck on Earth after quitting to GLC and needs money, not that he’s specifically trying to maintain a secret identity.

Could be, so fair enough. But I still maintain that the whole going back to Ferris Air is just silly. I think Jusonemore gets it right. But I could be wrong. And let’s face it, Hal know a lot of people like Bruce Wayne, who can get him gainful employment without Hal being creepy around ex-girlfriend.
