    I get that people hate Bendis Superman - for reasons I can understand, and reasons that are utterly beyond me - but I cannot grasp arguing these are not 6 perfect pages.

    I have not seen anybody complain. But then again , they could start.

    Unfortunately this run is nothing but a couple of good scenes and interesting ideas but the overall story and characterization is a mess.

    You said it, chief. Damn fine preview.

    That first page takeout got a good laugh out of me. Well-played.

    Just gonna repeat what I said in the other thread. The preview is amazing, this story is turning out to be infinitely better than I ever hoped it would be, and if the next 3-6 issues are just interactions like this, with Clark and his peers figuring out the new normal, I'd be entirely satisfied.

    Clark going public rubs against the core concept of Superman, and yet Bendis is making it f**king work, man.

    For some reason Clark Kent without glasses feels right. Love the shrug he does about what do they call him now.

    It's definitely written well enough. Even no Bendis speak present. And of course the art which has just been well, Reis, which pretty much stands for beautiful. But then again writing was never an issue with me. Hence my enjoyment of the early run. Its the direction I couldn't get on board with, and still can't. It being crafted decently unfortunately won't change anything where I'm concerned. I wish I could, believe me, I hate it when I'm on the sideline. But there's just nothing here I'm looking for in a Superman lore, its removing and changing too much I consider key to my enjoyment. I guess this is just something where "old guy resistant to change" really comes out in me. For those who were on the fence and are being drawn into the story, I'm glad the negative expectation was subverted though.

    Yeah, that was a moment that stud out to me as well. Didn't even take in that he wasn't wearing glasses till he did the shrug. Great preview though, need this and the heroes special to come out already.

    I noticed the lack of glasses immediately and it was a little jarring for me. It will take some getting used to.
