    This issue's shaping up so nicely, it could very well be my favourite issue by Bendis since ever. I'm too excited to read the rest.

    I guess you haven't been reading Fraction's Jimmy Olsen book then? It's totally in continuity and leans hard into the silver age weirdness. Last issue was fantastic. And as icing on the cake, it's maybe only the second time (the first being Grant Morrison) ever where I've see a writer make a great case for why Superman is best friends with Jimmy Olsen. It's also some pretty outstanding character work for Jimmy.

    I have yet to read Jimmy, I think it's the homage to the Silver Age that's probably kept me at bay but I like everything else I guess. It would be nice to see a deeper Jimmy/Superman dynamic that's all too often missing from the main books.

    It's that insofar as it firmly acknowledges that as Jimmy's base, and it puts the weird back into the Superman world, but it's genuinely more than that. Fraction's doing something really fascinating with storytelling format and how time moves about in the book. It's crazy and bombastic, and can seem random, but there's actually a pretty solid mystery and character study going on. Like, in this last issue that just came out we get such a great look inside who Jimmy is. It's also just so unashamed of being fun and genuinely laugh out loud funny.

    I'd say check out at least 3 issues of it or try the trade when it hits. Couldn't recommend it more

    I will read it, probably once the maxi is done so I can read the whole thing in one sitting.

    So, it's already canonised. Thanks for that. unfortunately, i haven't. It's either this or lois for me and i chose lois. Is the book better?

    Depends on what your sensibilities as a reader are. They can't really be judged against one another because both books are doing vastly different things with vastly different goals in mind. For me personally, I'm gonna pick Lois back up once it's all done (but I still buy each single issue just to show support). And the Jimmy book had one issue where it almost lost me, but it pretty quickly got me back and hooked me.

    I personally recommend it.

Even the constantly sudden disappearance of Clark and the appearance of Superman should have puzzled them.
    I think he traditionally raises his voice an octave when he's Daily Planet Clark. Part of the disguise.
