Either your cut didn't work or you forgot to put the pages behind one.

Cut, please.

I like what I'm seeing.

And I like the way Lois' sister thinks!

I know it was only a couple of pages, but I'm not too crazy about Morrison's version of Krypton and its destruction. I thought the version of Krypton that was introduced during the New Krypton storyline was better.

Those pages were showing Brainiac shrinking Kandor, I think, not the destruction of the planet.

Looks like it. Is Brainiac a Kryptonian construct in this version like STAS one wonders?

Brainiac is identified as "alien" by Jor-El in the flashback.

I have to admit I'm getting sort of interested in this take on Superman. It's different, but good.

But the art. Erf. Does anyone else think the faces are strange? Jimmy Olsen has never been very attractive but I think this one has to win the Ugly Award. It's like a mutated Ron Weasley.

It's pretty bad art. Hell, I don't even know what's supposed to be going on with "Random military guy with stars in places and an Army patch, so you know it's real."

Hey look, it's the story everyone knew was coming months ago. The one that's been done to death at Marvel and a few times at DC.

Why not? Would you expect Harry Potter to secretly be Superman?

Considering they both have specialised powers that normal humans don't possess (and ones that are greatly improved by magick in Harry's case), then yes, that would most definitely put Harry high on my list as possible Superman suspects.

Okay, yeah, bad example. Should have been 'Would you expect some dork who looks like Harry Potter to secretly be Superman?'

Between this and what I've seen of Superman it's just a shame nobody wanted to write any stories about Superman or Clark actually giving a shit about or helping anybody instead of using it as a lazy, perfunctory lip-service backdrop for the same old Superman Punches Aliens Lex Luthor Is A Dick.

There's a lot of different versions of Superman I'd be interested, I just think that if you're going to do the "Superman as People's Hero" version then actually do it, don't pull this bullshit.

This could have been a good comic if they'd given the gig to John Rogers instead of Grant "who needs storytelling, I'm Grant Fooking Morrison!" Morrison.

Honestly, a Superman book that would get me interested would be one where Supes does "normal" crap like getting cats down from trees and putting out fires or whatever for most of the day, then he would fly to Gotham and he and Batman would have some sort of team-up where they snarked at each other the whole time, and then to finish it all off, Lois and Clark would go out on a date and then go home and have awesome sex. The End.

Heh, switch Lois and Bruce and I'm with ya! ;)

I said tell stories about Superman helping anybody, not scattershot halfassed bulletpoints jammed in around the Luthorsey shennanigans that actually drive the plot.

One panel of some old guy who's just been chucked off a roof confessing to some incredibly vague shit isn't storytelling, it's... well, pretty much what I already called it in the post to which you were responding.

Lex isn't quite the powerful person he is normally at this point. Someone should be shutting him up. And actually there's no good reason right now for his irrational hatred of Superman to not be an irrational hatred of aliens

Ugh...the art... is both good (design, details, characters, natural poses, backgrounds, shots, angles,..) and bad (CLARK's FACE!!! °___° Haaaa!!!)

I miss the pre-DCnU DCU :/
(I also will miss New Krypton and it's impact in the Supes books...)

I love Clark's baggy sweater and rat's nest hair--NOW I can believe no one can make the connection. Plus it makes him adorable.
