    That preview has been out for a few days now. And with the issue out tomorrow, that's a bit of a shame to wait until now.
    Regardless, that's one pretty cool fight scene. A nice crescendo, moments that are f.cking awesome (the whole rodeo thing, man!), the threat of Kentville being razed while Clark's busy to put some emotional stake, incredible art as usual...No disapointment from me here. As usual, AC is where it's at.
    Hold those chains, Clark Kent
    Bear the weight on your shoulders
    Stand firm. Take the pain.

    I still want the costume back sooner than later, but I sure as hell wouldn't be opposed to his psyche making the S like the one on this shirt. A symbolic melding of ideas, art-wise.

    As for Lee, it could go two ways. The initials alone are a huge hint that her role is going to be very consequential in some fashion, so I could see the plan being to build her into a major supporting character in the books for years to come...or she could be a surprise villain.

    Mh. Has anyone noticed that the cover shows the word "Justice", rather than "Truth"?
    I really hope that it isn't just a 4-issue storyline.

    The epic “Truth” arc reaches its finale as Superman makes some brutal choices and discovers the source of the Shadow Warriors.

    The arc called "Truth" seems like it'll be done in 4 issues but the actual setting and events in the arc will more than likely live on and be the stage for new stories going forward

    Truth seams to be giving us some crazy images like Superman rodeo or him sitting on a plane in Superman #41.

    That was.....That was....
    That was the most amazing thing in the history of amazing things.
    I mean, the art, the tension, the emotion, the ending (I was like "Nooooo" and "Yeesss" at the same time)....
    And the whole Kentville scene....My god, the whole Kentville scene....That was incredible. A great standoff, with a huge social subtext (there's that one scene-those who read the issue just know which one- where you know exactly what real life event inspired it, and it was awesome). And the whole part where Clark makes his stand with the chains and stand as a shield between the people of Kentville and the cops.....That might be the most inspirational Superman moment I have ever seen. That's how you do it, people.
    I may need a moment to step back, but....this might be the best Superman issue since at the very least the start of the New 52.

    Dante was the highlight of the issue for me.
