    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.

    looks great! man Pak and Kuder's run has been my favorite Superman comic in years. Pak is one of the few writers who just gets Superman.

    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.

    With the Truth storyline running through 4 titles, each (as far as I can tell) telling it from a different time point, it will be interesting to see if, when Truth is done, these titles (for want of a better phrase) stop doing that.
