Superman #28

Under Fire

Awesome!  So it looks like Lois Lane officially knows that Superman and Clark Kent are one and the same, but on the bright side, it also looks like she is playing dumb on the matter at hand considering that she still has some of the psionic powers that were bestowed upon her.  That’s only a speculation however, but the possibility is very high on the matter.

Now, in regards to the story, it was good.  Something, an ethereal doorway (that looks a lot like the doorway to Kingdom Hearts; don’t judge) has appeared in space above Earth.  A mystery to Superman, it’s hinted that it may have something to do with the crimes and the massive outbreak of gang wars down in Suicide Slums.  Then there is the added fact that someone want to buy the blog owned by Cat Grant and Clark Kent.  Now, what’s great about this is the fact that Cat and Clark are going together and Cat is now a character worth liking, which wasn’t true before the new 52.  Granted, her character is still plenty superficial, but she has more substance to ground her, and the fact that she is now the one person working with Clark, with Jimmy entering the picture now, really gives the series something fresh to work with.

All in all, very good.  Next issue it’s Superman vs. Starfire.  That should be interesting.

The Flash #28

Deadman Walking

Woo!  Deadman!  Honestly, one of the best characters out there in the new 52 who has finally been getting the recognition he deserves since Blackest Night.

Anyway, picking up where the last issue left off, Barry is investigating the massive crimes that are related to the Broome Hill Butcher, with some hope that he would have finally solved his mothers’ murder and clear his fathers’ name.

That led to him stumbling across the vengeful spirit of Ulysses Sutter who was killed in a blind rage by Marshall Fletcher, the man who founded Keystone City.  So now, Deadman and The Flash have teamed up to literally fight a ghost who is seeking revenge for his death.

All in all, a good story and this team up works very well with it.  The Flash and Deadman are both great heroes who work well together and given the plot line, it makes a lot of sense.  The story is fast-paced, no pun intended, and grips the reader, hooking them into the story leading up to a very unexpected turn of events.
