In a week of strong contenders, I went with this as my “Pick of the Week” for three reasons.
1) Superman wasn’t struggling with his humanity; he was struggling with his super-ness. How much is too much? How far is too far? It all felt grounded in reality which made it all the more meaningful.
2) The conceit of “Clark Kent is dead!” Come on, that’s just a potentially fun concept!
3)Supes’ supporting cast being used to flesh out the story and showing the difference between a supporting cast and a bunch of people who happen to be in the same comic.
Both writers and artists just nailed it all for me this issue. The story actually made me feel for Clark/Superman. And when that happens, it’s some fine work, IMO.
I’m psyched to see where this goes next!
