It’s two months since Superman defeated Brainiac in the far reaches of space, pushing him into a black hole.

Action Comics #32 review

The Superman Doomed event enters a new stage this issue, with an Enemy of the State banner added to the cover. I’m not sure why the title needs a subtitle as the story continues without any obvious new starting point, but there you go.

My Greatest Adventure #1 review

Last year DC gave us the Weird Worlds anthology, six issues of great-looking, flighty fun. Here’s the sequel, with two of the three stars of that book back, while the irritating Lobo is, happily, gone.
