Superman #20 - 25, “Black Dawn”, by Tomasi, Gleason and Mahnke was a great arc. Probably my favourite since the first, and a brilliant way to wrap up the first year of this book.
Hamilton always felt like a poor man’s Smallville, but events conspire to make it so much more. The return of Manchester Black & the Elite was nicely done, providing a thematic sequel to their infamous earlier appearance.
The art team were firing on all cylinders this arc. A perfect tag team. And Tomasi wrote some genuinely tense and emotional scenes to match.
I’m sad to see this era of the title come to a close, to be honest, but I have a lot of faith in this creative team, and look forward to where they will take us next (following the next 3 fill in issues, that is!).
