I think the ending of this book is what upsets me the most about the DC reboot, it’s obvious there’s so much more Lemire wants to do with Superboy, Simon Valentine and all the other weird Smallville residents. We didn’t even get a wrap-up of the Psionic Lad plot! At least Lemire managed to finish the Hollow Men story, and he did it well here, every one of the characters he’s used in the run got a chance to shine, and it wrapped up in a nice mirror image of #1. All of that plus top-notch art from Pier Gallo. Scott Lobdell has a lot to live up to, I can’t imagine his new book being as good as this one was. Is it too much to ask for Animal Man to meet some Parasite Frogs?
