    Surprised the article didn't start off with "Great Caesar's Ghost!" for full new series announcement mode.

    Ha! Love the doubtful glances from Lois and Clark.

    I love the name of the comic! We need a series of these where they just get more and more ludicrous. "Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen's Boss Perry White's Other Employee Lois Lane" or "Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen's Boss Perry White's Favorite Bar's Owner Bibbo"

    This is exciting! Love to see Perry get some of the respect he deserves!

    I’m grasping at straws here but I really hope this leads to Fraction occasionally writing another Superman/Superverse mini every so often for DC. He and Lieber are one of the best Superman creator teams off of the strength of a 12 issue mini alone, I would love to see what more they could do.

    They are testing if senior citizens buy comics.
    Yes, we do...

    I'm looking forward to new Detective run since it is going to have real solid main and backup creative teams and... maybe DC could do the same for Action? PJK/Federici (or Duce) on main story and Fraction/Lieber on backups?

    Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen is one of the best Superman books of the last decade. I am all over this.
    Theorising that it could travel within its own timeline, DC stepped into the Crisis accelerator and vanished. DC awoke to find itself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not its own, and driven by editorial to change history *for the better* *to be more cohesive* *Silver Age nostalgia* *for the sake of it*. And so DC finds itself leaping from Crisis to Crisis, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that the next leap will be to a perfect DC Universe…

    I’d happily take that, would be a huge step up from the quality of the backups so far. Fraction’s getting that Hollywood money however, don’t know if there’s any interest on his end to do anything beyond a short story every so often these days.

    This creative team is always welcome back in Metropolis as far as I'm concerned. This is a must buy.
