Both are really bad ideas. They need to focus on stories of him as Superman, I would live to see them kill of Jon...Maybe have Superman IDing him in the morgue with an X ray showing where a villain stuffed Jon's cranium. lol

Let's dispense with the art, which is cartoonish and awful. Three things I hated/made no sense: 1) When Supes tells his son "You're better at this than I ev-" Based on WHAT??? Modesty notwithstanding, Jon hasn't been around long enough to prove himself At All.
2) Jon telling his father he doesn't have long to live (and can't change it). Really? Is that something to tell your father - especia more

Honestly I would give it a zero, this book has gone from bad to even worse. I didn't think that was even possible yet here we are. The art is laughable. Have a look on page 5, there is this thing called depth perspective. I don't know what is on page 22 but if that is intended to be mongul that's just horrible. I could draw better than this when I was in 3rd grade! Then there is the story that more

This was probably one of the most boring Batman comics i've read in a long time. It starts with a Mayor's speech (i'm bored already). Then the speech is broken up by an attack by Party Crashers.

Ok, I get it...According to some people being rich is bad. So we had to take the Wayne fortune away from Batman. Yeah, that was part of the escapism and part of the character he's a millionaire playboy. If the writers don't like that then go create your own character and watch it not sell. Anyway, this issue and story arc sucks. DC is just circling the drain at this point.
