Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman: Lois and Clark #4

Released Digitally: January 27, 2016

Cover date: March 2016

"Arrival" - Part 4

Writer: Dan Jurgens
Penciller: Lee Weeks and Marco Santucci
Inker: Scott Hanna and Sergio Cariello
Cover: Lee Weeks and Brad Anderson

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

    It's a shame this series will only be another four issues, as it's turning in such quality storytelling amidst the dearth of offerings for Superman line-wide. This issue did demand more pardons than previous ones, and thankfully the knots didn't interfere with the entertainment derived within. Superman: Lois and Clark, as stated in the first review, has a premise that is wholly and conceptually implausible. Superman, Lois, and his son, are on another Earth that mirrors their own. They have remained undetected for nearly a decade. Superman has not been involved with public rescues, so one has to wonder what became of him during events such as Trinity War and Forever Evil. He has a new outfit comprised of a "polymer," because that's the jargon for superhero suits, and Lois somehow had it made with no one the wiser, as she impersonated her younger self. It's all a pretty big leap for a Superman reader, and thankfully it's worth the jump because of Jurgens' and Weeks' craftsmanship.

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

    What a waste of time. No true fight, more delaying tactics, and all because there is no story to be had. Why have Bane fight against anyone in the video game, as the result is preordained, hence we have Bane meandering with Batwoman, after he was able to hold Doomsday, and Killer Frost doing absolutely nothing. Injustice is predicated on the ridiculous notion of a fight between Superman and Batman, and all the other fights that "must" take place because of the animosity between them, and even that bit of entertainment has been sucked from the elongated run of this series. In other words, when there are no characters left to be killed, Injustice cannot deliver a competent brawl. Instead, we're subjected to Bane fighting Mirror Master's simulacrum of Batman, and worse, Mirror Master is placed in shadow for secrecy, as if we're too dumb to sort out it's him, after we were already shown that Batman recruited the aid of Flash's rogues gallery.

February 2, 2016: "Rebirth" Rumor Round-Up - Superman Titles Ending?Print

Rebirth You may recall that late in January DC Entertainment co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan Didio tweeted an image of a blue curtain with the word "Rebirth" across it, which lead to the speculation that DC Comics is set to once again reset/relaunch its comic book titles with new No. 1s in June.

BleedingCool.com has published a series of new articles which collect together new rumors surrounding this upcoming event... and Superman comic books are heavily involved.

Rumors are that we will see a number of canceled titles, then the "Rebirth" event itself, with new #1s to follow for the books that survive the cull.

Reportedly, both "Batman/Superman" and "Superman/Wonder Woman" are set to conclude ahead of June. However, the three heroes are said to be teaming up for a new book titled "Trinity", which will be released twice a month.

While we lose two Superman titles, word is that two new Superman books will fill the void... "Man of Steel" and "The Super Man".

Peter Tomasi is rumored to be the new writer taking over the relaunched "Superman" title, which could also be a bi-weekly or twice-a-month book.

We will let you know when DC Comics officially announces the "Rebirth" details.

February 2, 2016: "Secret Hero Society: Study Hall of Justice" InterviewPrint

Secret Hero Society Writer Derek Fridolfs and artist Dustin Nguyen sat down for a chat with ComicBookResources.com to talk about their just-released all-ages DC Comics superhero book "Secret Hero Society: Study Hall of Justice".

The book finds a young Bruce Wayne enrolled at Ducard Academy, a school with a musclebound bully named Bane, a joker gang and Hugo Strange on staff, among other problems. Bruce joins forces with fellow students Clark and Diana to investigate the school's sinister secrets.

Here are a few excerpts from the interview...

    Just so everyone is on the same page, what is "Secret Hero Society: Study Hall of Justice?"

    Derek Fridolfs: It's an all-ages title. It's a detective story about Bruce and Clark and Diana when they're all going to a school together and gives us the chance to reintroduce the characters in a younger setting than what we're probably used to.

    What does making a DC-related book aimed at kids mean? Fridolfs: We can get away with a little more violence in comics and this is a much younger audience than that so it's more cartoon violence. The thing with comics is that every time you introduce a character in Batman comics, ninety percent of the time readers already know the history of that character. In this we're introducing the characters to kids who might not have read about these characters yet or might not know about them yet. It's a little more light hearted.

Read the full interview at the CBR website.

Purchase "Secret Hero Society: Study Hall of Justice" from the Superman Homepage Online Store now. Or download it for your Kindle or iBooks.

Secret Hero Society #2 will be published in spring 2017 and will see the addition of more DC Comics favorite characters including Arthur Curry (Aquaman), Victor Stone (Cyborg), and many more. Secret Hero Society #3 will be published in spring 2018.
