Dark Nights: Metal #1 - There’s a lot going on in this issue. The cold open action scene was a bit disconnected from the main story but felt like the opening of a great film that kind of sets the tone for the whole story. I love @GregCapullo’s art and designs. @ssnyder1835’s story seems to be setting up a lot of piece that I hope will have a big payoff. I did not expect that last page reveal. Curious to see where this story goes.
Justice League #27 - Like I said, I’m a sucker for these kind of stories. This issue was a lot of exposition with the Justice League finding out what happened in the future to cause their children to come back in time to try to find them. I highly suspect that Sovereign is Wonder Woman or Hunter’s female sister (possibly twin). It’s also not clear yet who Hunter’s father is but I did like that the Kents fostered him as their son along side Jon. I really love the Aquaman design in this book too. It’s like a crazy Cable version of the character with augmented powers taken from others. @bryanhitch’s Justice League and JLA have been one of my favorite DC books for a while. So I will be sad to see him go once this arc is finished. However, I am excited to see him leave with a bang and look forward to his next writing and/or art project.
Super Sons #7 - This was just a great fun story that introduces Jon to the Teen Titans. This book continues to be fun and compelling and set itself apart from the main Superman book while sharing some of the same characters.
Superman #29 - I love that this book isn’t afraid to try things and tell stories of different lengths. This issue kicks off a new story that starts with Superman tracking missing children and ends with a discovery that it’s Parallax. Leading Superman to trade himself for the children. The last page promises a fun match-up in the next issue.
