  1. I feel like this should say, “Superman is still in for the fight of his life – AGAIN!”

  2. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh yes! One of the most bewildering tales in comic history continues!

  3. Sorry, Mr. Cornell, but I liked it better when you were telling me more about Lex Luthor instead of doomsday multiplied. Action 901 was my last issue until Morrison takes over.

    On a side note: PLEASE go back to Captain Britain and MI13!

  4. I’ll take this over the powerwalker any day

  5. @WHATTHEDAST  Going back to MI13’s not really Cornell’s call.

  6. Issue 901 and the bits of 900 that dealt with Doomsday did not feel as if they were written by the person who had written the last 12 months of Lex stories.  What happened?  I feel like Cornell is being forced to advance plot points dictated through editorial mandate.  Is anyone else getting the feeling that this is a different writer or tone from the previous stories?  I guess what I am saying is that I have faith that Cornell is a good writer and I am looking for an outside cause for all this non-goodness.

  7. Doomsday? Again? Has Superman flown a few laps around the planet and reversed time too?

  8. Just read a preview of this… The art is pretty. I might consider picking this up maybe… 

  9. I guess I’m fairly alone in this, but I’ve been in enjoying the reign of doomsday arc.  Disclaimer: Return of Superman/Reign of the Supermen was one of my first Superman stories and holds a place close to my nerdy heart.

  10. I dont think this is well written because he’s being forced to write an arc he obviously doesn’t want to write. Still it’s a shame he’s not coming back to write superman in the near future

  11. I picked up the last issue because I was looking forward to the art.  When the book switched up with a different artist, I was pretty disappointed.  I wish the other artist’s name was listed here as opposed to just Rocafort.  I wish he were doing the whole thing.

  12. I’m an avid comic fan, and I couldn’t tell you where this reign of doomsday story is. I honestly thought it was over.

  13. @CONOR

    Yeah, i can dream though. I think Paul Cornell’s exclusivity to DC was one of the biggest disappointments, until his first issue of Action came out of course.

    The biggest problem right now is that the Doomsday arc was just thrown at him, and he had to do something with it. I think Cornell is a great writer, but I don’t think he’s the kind of writer who can take a ball and run with it. He’s more meticulous, and likes to have a plan in advance of where he’s headed.

  14. Just wrote a review of this, but while I love Paul Cornell and want him to bear my children (wait, that wouldn’t work, right?), this just didn’t do it for me when it comes to the writing. A few bits that show the Cornell we’ve come to know and love, and the art was great, but the stakes weren’t well played up and all these goofy Doomsdays seem more comical than anything else.

  15. That’s a lot of doomsdays. Just call it Doomweeks

  16. Kenneth Rocafort is a badass, I hope he’s just trying to get ahead on the red hood series.  which would explain the half issues of art we’ve been getting.
