Inker: Tom Derenick
Cover: David Yardin

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Still trying to put a finger on what exactly happened here aside of more padding. Actually, nothing occurs aside of more padding. The Lex Luthor portion makes little sense, as while readers may know that Lex has a hand in Bizarro's creation, it hasn't been shown that Bizarro does. Bizarro returns to Germany first and Luthor second, which undercuts the impact of him arriving before Lex with Trickster's mangled corpse. Once again, nothing of worth occurs; there is no progression, just padding. It's obvious where the story is going, why it's going there, but we're going to be dragged at a snail's pace to the when. What has been done to deserve such a contemptuous situation? Injustice has some of the most loyal readers I know, and surely they deserve a better wrap up to a five year storyline. Perhaps, they don't. Who knows? It's been such a slog to get this far, but the end, the blessed end is in sight. Stay the course!

"The Final Days of Superman" - Part 3: "Dazed and Confused"

Writer: Peter J. Tomasi
Penciller: Paul Pelletier
Inker: Sandra Hope Archer

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    From the beginning of the New 52 there has been this manic-depressive quality to the Superman books. One minute they're fantastic and action packed and telling really good Superman stories and the next they are second guessing the character and turn into a muddled, mangled mess. It's makes me more than a little sad that right here at the end Peter Tomasi starts to turn that frown upside down and makes not only this title but the Superman books as a whole exciting again.

    The cover to this issue promised The Search For Supergirl, which led me to believe that this was going to be a long process. It was a pleasant surprise that that search took all of three pages. I've missed Supergirl in the comics. Sure we have been getting an amazing television series this season but Supergirl was the one book that never let me down through the course of the New 52 and it was a shame that they didn't do anything with her after her series ended. Superman could have been a little more diplomatic in how he supposedly freed his cousin from captivity and his actions do little to quash the feeling that he might be a danger and that people might be afraid of him but his heart was in the right place.

"Angel"

Writer: Max Landis
Penciller: Jonathan Case
Inker: Jonathan Case

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    On a technical level this story isn't bad. There is a beginning, a middle and an end. The main character goes through some growth and there is a general theme that runs through the piece. I am guessing that Max Landis wanted that theme to be Clark accepting the fact that he isn't living up to his potential and only through the harsh words of a friend does he begin to accept this fact.

    If that was his aim Landis fails on a spectacular level.

    To be fair I'm bringing my own baggage to this story but after going through several months of Superman comics where just about everyone is mad at Superman it's annoying to come to a story that is about his early days and here we have more people mad at Superman for because they don't like how he's been acting. Again, I am guessing that Landis is trying to show that Clark has changed since his time in Metropolis and is growing apart from his old life but he also throws in the whole "monsters are coming" thing and the combination of the two doesn't work.

April 25, 2016: "The Final Days of Superman" Gets Second PrintingPrint

DC Comics has officially announced that the eight-issue "The Final Days of Superman" comic book saga, which spans four different Superman titles, is set to receive a second print run coming May 11.

    A second printing of the April titles including the sold out SUPERMAN #51, BATMAN/SUPERMAN #31, ACTION COMICS #51, and SUPERMAN/ WONDER WOMAN #28 will land in stores on May 11th, featuring a proclamation of their part in the monumental story.

    The last four issues including BATMAN/SUPERMAN #32, ACTION COMICS #52, SUPERMAN/ WONDER WOMAN #29 and the grand finale SUPERMAN #52 will be released with the trade dress in their original print run.

Superman #51 Batman/Superman #31 Action Comics #51 Sup/WW #28

Contrary to earlier reports, it doesn't appear as though the bleeding "S" shield from the 1992 "Death of Superman" story will be used on the covers for these reprints, as you can see from the new trade dress artwork shown.

April 25, 2016: "Batman v Superman" Passes $850 Million WorldwidePrint

Who Will Win? The global Box Office takings for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" currently sits at $851.601 million, having taken in another $51 million in the past week, taking it past the life-time earnings of the first "Iron Man" film.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earned another $8.3 million overseas from 66 markets. Like in America, it had a slightly stronger hold (-47%) in its fifth weekend than it has in past frames. That brings the DC Comics sequel's overseas cume to $532.1m as it winds down. The Ben Affleck/Henry Cavill/Gal Gadot blockbuster has earned $851.601m worldwide. Warts and all, that's the seventh-biggest superhero movie ever behind Spider-Man 3, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Iron Man 3, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and The Avengers. Regarding Warner Bros. releases, it's the tenth-biggest WB movie ever worldwide.

April 23, 2016: Movement at the Kent Farm for "Justice League" FilmPrint

Kent Farm Superman fan Jeff Frost sent us a photo of the Kent Farm House in Yorkville, Illinois where there's been some movement of late, with boards having been removed from the windows, and security guards patrolling the location.

The Kent Farm house and barn were constructed for "Man of Steel" on a property in Yorkville where an old farm house once stood many years ago. The farmer who owns the property was persuaded to plant corn in his fields months ahead of shooting for "Man of Steel" so that the corn would be at the height required by Zack Snyder at the start of filming.

Similar preparations were required for filming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", with the location looking like it will be used once more for the upcoming "Justice League" film.

"Justice League - Part One" is scheduled for release on November 17, 2017.
