    Now i have heard everything. Superman depressed!?!

    What was it that Jor-El said in Superman The Movie, to paraphrase," They have great potential, but lack the light to show them the way."

I would have liked to have done a review of the issue but there was nothing in it worth my time and energy commenting on really. I have liked much of Chris Robertson's work here but at this stage it has become painfully transparent he isn't the one controlling the book, he's just a typist basically.
Based on the reveals of the September relaunch It certainly looks to me as if DC very intentionally sand-barred Superman this last year or three, there is no other interpretation to my mind, and I think that is reprehensible not only as a committed reader but as a consumer shelling out money and putting my faith in the company to deliver the best product they can.

Right now the best Superman book as ever is the always dependable Supergirl. Always consistent in its quality despite the best attempts by DC to similarly sabotage her with that old kiss-of-death tactic - musical chair creative teams. Which (pleasingly) hasn't worked in her case.... \(beer\)
