Another solid if unremarkable issue of Superman. This really is reminding me of Dan Jurgens’ original run in the 90s, which, even though I liked those comics, isn’t really what you want from a modernising reboot. That said, it was good in that Jurgens-y way, with a nice dovetail of the two storylines that #9. Superman fights ‘Anguish’, pisses her off, so she goes off to try and kill his ‘family’. Only of course it’s not his family, it’s a poor old civilian who the media has claimed to be Superman. It’s interesting to look at this story (and the previous one in fact) as a comment on state of modern news media. Clark Kent, Lois Lane and Perry White (and I suppose Jimmy as well) represent the old-school, fighting for the truth, whereas Morgan Edge is the new, only out for ratings, sensationalising things. Hopefully Superman can reclaim the lost honour of journalists in a way that’s not douchey like Aaron Sorkin. Jurgens’ art was very good, Jesus Merino’s finishes really make it pop a lot better than say, Norm Rapmund’s. I especially liked the splash-page of Superman bursting out of the ground, iconic. Yeah, so whilst this old-fashioned approach isn’t quite what I want in the New 52, it’s still not bad in and of itself, and that’s all that matters really, is the comic good? Yes.
