The only "cosmos-shaking mystery" is why comic book writers don't realize that the more hugely the stakes, the less interesting the story. When was the last time anybody thought, "Oh my freakin' god! The very existence of the multiverse is at stake? Here, take my money."

I can't really say there are any spoilers in this review, as the writer, Peter Milligan, spoils the major mystery of this story from the get-go.

If you are old enough to remember the original series (as I am), you may very well be disappointed in this issue (as I am). The big problem with this new version is that The Village in which Patrick McGoohan's TV character awoke, is already a k more

This low rating is 100% due to the new kid on the block. Bendis's contribution to this issue was sadly out of place. Where the first six stories closed the book on the Man of Steel's first 80 years with love and appreciation, Bendis should have offered a story that welcomed Superman into the next 80 with hope and optimism. Instead we're offered this trite preview with a retcon gimmick, which shoul more

I'm a huge fan of the Black Hammer Universe that Jeff Lemire is creating, but even if you've never read a single Black Hammer related comic this is a great issue. Lots of comic say this, but in this case it's really true, Doctor Star is a great jumping on point for new readers.

What I love about this comic and much of Jeff Lemire's work is that he's able to bring pathos to a superhero more

For all the inspiration the writer claims to have gotten from countless cop shows, this is a very uninspired story. If this comic was a TV show, it would be cancelled after the first episode.
