This series is starting to find it's feet a little more, but I still don't buy Jon as Superman. I'll see how the next issue goes to determine whether or not I end up dropping this series. I just can't imagine coming back to a book that isn't for me every month just to go into a rage about it because one of the main characters likes both cock and pussy.
