Superman #38 Preview

Written by: Geoff Johns
Art by: John Romita, Jr
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: February 4, 2015

A new year brings a new power and a new look from the epic team of Geoff Johns, John Romita Jr. and Klaus Janson in the extra-sized conclusion of their first arc! The showdown between Superman and Ulysses will push the Man of Steel to new extremes – and Superman’s new look is revealed as Clark Kent tells his true identity to one of the cast. Plus a surprise guest-star!

I have enjoyed this arc and I'd take "Neil before Zod" any day...actually, I just wanted to force that joke in because if we are talking the Terence Stamp Zod then all bets are off.  I guess I should talk a little about this issue, but the solicit says so much already. Extra-sized conclusion?  A new look for Superman?  Revealing his identity?  A surprise guest-star?  That's a whole lot of shakin' going on.  My prediction for the guest star?  Terra Man.


  1. I don't think john romita's art works for a superman comic...

    1. I loved his first issue, but that may have been me getting overly excited for him joining DC. I have been less and less impressed since.

  2. I'm loving this run and, while I've managed to avoid spoilers re: his new powers (i'm gonna read it tonight), I couldn't help but check out the new costume. Despite a questionable decision or two (i'm not sold on fingerless gloves) Superman's new look is MUCH better than the last one. It has a best of both worlds feel, mixing basic and N52 elements. I'm a big Superman fan and Johns and JRJR have delivered (in my opinion, of course).
