Liking it so far. He has Lois and Jon away, but for story reasons. It's fairly traditional Supes; not off the wall or anything.

I read the Man of Steel mini but didn't bother continuing with the ongoing titles after that wrapped up. Him getting rid of Lois and Jon just didn't sit right with me, even if they are for "story reasons", especially Lois. We just had an entire era without her in the New 52.

Yea, I read it, it was a disappointment. Reaffirmed my thought that Bendis is not interested in writing Lois, plus "I left our son with your genocidal maniac of a father who has been known to manipulate people so I could come back and work on my career in secret" is a bad take on the character. Maybe this leads to a Lois solo but meh.

Sook's art was a treat as always though.

I liked that in the latest Action issue a kid in Metropolis was wearing a GL shirt and reading a GL comic when he spots Superman. Nice touch. I suppose it would've been a bit too much for him to say "aren't you that guy who fights with Green Lantern sometimes?"

And in Superman #7 a Xudarian is seen in the background of a spaceport. I thought that was a nice touch.

Looks like this won't be a black label book, plus a Matt Fraction/Steve Lieber Jimmy Olsen book.

That feels like a weird subject for black label.

I think DC shot themselves with the messaging on "Black Label" by announcing it as a mature reader focused from the beginning and then following it up with batjunk. A few months after the initial announcement they retroactively added things like All Star Superman and New Frontier to the "Black Label" line, which is what it should've been from the beginning, self-contained work from high profile creators.

Well, if it ends up like that, I will gladly pick it up later. I didn't get the Bat book, though, and a big reason is that oversize book isn't going to fit in my boxes.

I was pleasantly pleased to find Ms Tessmacher in canon with this week's Jimmy Olsen #3. I'm a sucker for Donner references.

Really enjoyed this weeks Luthor one shot written by Latour. Would like to see him do more Superman work.

Did I miss a good one? I wasn't planning to get the villain one-shots and this week was already a big one for me, so I skipped it.

I really liked it but I will admit that I am a sucker for multiverse stories.
