I'll post my review of Superman tonight when I get home.

On a side note, anyone hear from Ryan? I know his pc blew up and all but has he come back yet? Anyone know if he'll convert to here as well? His reviews were the one bright spot on the Rama after all the shit hit the fan.

He's got his PC situation worked out, but he's taking a break from reviews for a bit. He knows we've moved and he said he'd come back to the group eventually.

Amlah is the only one to vote for Rocka, so I'm pretty confident I am right.

or there is an abnormally number of you guys wrong.
Robinson & Rucka is the only right answer, although after this book. Suckason would be acceptable.

Superman Review

Ok so now I remember why I dropped all Superman books. I followed the New Krypton arc from the beginning all the way thru the part where the Kryptonians up and left with no explanation. I vowed to not let any Superman stories suck me in only to be let down by the ending. This issue is another perfect example of why I dropped the titles. Since when does Superman give up on Earth? Why is he abandoning earth? Last issue I read he was fighting his aunt to bring some bad guys to justice for committing a crime and now all of a sudden he shows up and his aunt welcomes him home and says basically "now lets get you a job". Out of nowhere it seems he's abandoned his home and his friends to come out and hang with these people who outright broke Earths laws and are under the military command of damn ZOD of all people?!?! Totally unbelievable. Art wasn't anything spectacular either. Story was even worse. I really dislike this whole New Krypton thing now and am glad I am no longer being sucked in. Also, why the hell are they still using the triangle numbering? I thought this was like a 12 or 13 issue thing, but now we're up 16????

Story 3
Art 4.5
Overal 3.75

Gotta give everyone time to post their reviews. I've got it ready to go, but I'm going to give it a few more hours before I submit it.

Update (10:30pm CST): I've submitted this week's article. Should be up sometime tomorrow.

I have of course edited everyone's reviews and replaced any mention of James Robinson and Greg Rucka with Rocka. :twisted: (not really)

Okay, I'll concede my wrongness on the Rocka thing if Sire's going to side with me. :x :P
