Adventures of Superman #38 Review

Written by: B. Clay Moore
Art by: Gabriel Rodriguez
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: January 13. 2014

Exposed: Part 2 of 3

Clark Kent has coffee with his stalker and finds out the reporter has put two and two together and come up with eight. The reporter then follows leads to Stryker's Prison and interviews a colorful cast of Superman's rogues gallery.  Metallo escapes using said Mr. Hobson as a human shield, but does the he have information Metallo can use against the Man of Steel?

B. Clay Moore continues his Exposed story arc with Adventures of Superman #38.  I have to admit, the story is not really grabbing me.  In fact, it's pretty boring.  The reporter who may or may not have information tying Clark to Superman comes off as delusional and pretty stupid.  He doesn't seem like a threat, except to himself.  The bit where Hobson interviews Superman villains is pretty funny, but a little too late.  This is part two of a three part arc so I expected the story to move along a bit quicker than it has. Maybe Moore will amaze me with part three, but I am not expecting it at this point.

Gabriel Rodriguez does about the same with the art this issue as last.  That means I still don't like the look of Superman.  However, I must give props to his Atomic Skull.  He looked awesome.

Bits and Pieces:

Adventures of Superman #38 is continuing the mediocrity of the Exposed arc.  The story is not interesting and the comic itself is boring.  Maybe the final issue will "wow" me, but so far this arc is a big disappointment.
