Superman and Son the story arc is over but Superman and Son the adventure continues, as Clark and Jon are transported to Dinosaur Island. Exactly how, they don’t know, it was a quiet enough father and son garden shed bonding session which, when you’re Superman and Son, means you’re in the Fortress of Solitude. Building a mini-UFO […]

Batman/Superman #32 review

That’s more like it. After last week’s enjoyment blip in the Final Days of Superman storyline, this issue sees things back on an even keel.
