A weird couple of reads:
Superman Rebirth: Volume 3: Multiplicity
In a way, that great cover the first issue of this arc had was its undoing for the story couldn’t live up to it. The other problems I had was it all felt inconclusive, as if there were stories before this I should have read and it ends on a to be continued note. Why as Prophecy doing what he was and how? Dunno. Who’s on that last page? Dunno. It also wasn’t helped by Red Son making reference to an Annual story that wasn’t collected here, an odd omission. It was Ok, but compared to the prior two volumes OK is way down for this book. Hopefully the next volume will be a return to form.
Descender: Volume 4
First, the good: Ngyuen’s watercolours remain superb and the characters finally get off the damn moon. After this? The problem is too many strands with too little room for each to really build and continue - Lemire tries to do that, but it ends up as a couple of moves on each and the volume then ends on a set of cliffhangers. I’m wondering if this will read better a couple of trades at a time but that spins out the story and volume 3 had already slowed it down a lot, though I understand the reasoning for it.
