Superman #8 (Don't do despot Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sun Apr 29, 2012 3:00 pm

Another pretty good issue of Superman, I have to say I’m liking the Jurgens/Giffen take way better than the Perez one, and this is only after 2 issues. It was obvious that the opening stuff with Superman being on the run was a Helspont-induced hallucination, but it was a well-done action sequence nonetheless, and it looks like the fears on show here will play a big role in the coming months. Helspont is a decent villain, but he is annoyingly verbose, I was glad when he shut up and started to fight. It was interesting to see Lucy Lane show-up, I wonder what her characterisation will be like, will she be the more militaristic Daddy’s girl like she was when she became Superwoman? Or will she get married to Ron Troupe? I noticed she’s not blind here.

Maybe she'll start dating Clark.

Was that it to the arc then? Superman wouldn't fall to the dark side, slapped around Heelspont then back to Metropolis for dinner?
