Action Comics #1048 Review

For The Love Of New Gods

Written By: Phillip Kennedy Johnson
Art By: Mike Perkins, Lee Loughridge, Dave Sharpe, David Lapham, Trish Mulvihill
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: October 25, 2022

It's the Return of Kal-El part 3 and even though our part 2 in Superman: Son of Kal-El didn't do much for Superman returning...... or even doing much for the Lex Luthor/Metallo threat coming in this arc..... it somehow became associated with what's going on here. Previously, we saw Lex Luthor wanting to get Metallo out of prison to take care of Superman, who has brought Warworld back to Earth, but it also seems that Luthor has his own plans to take technology from Warworld so hopefully this plot thickens as we move on because I can't wait to see these two villains team up against our Man of Steel. But will we get any of that here or move on to something new? Let's jump into this issue and check it out.

Tim Drake: Robin #2 Review

Robin: Wanted

Written By: Meghan Fitzmartin
Art By: Riley Rossmo, Lee Loughridge, Rob Leigh
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: October 25, 2022

Let's check back in on my favorite Robin, Tim Drake, who is now finally in his own solo series, something that I've waited forever for but let's not forget the old saying, "Be careful what you wish for". The thing is, while I love Tim Drake, the first issue of this series didn't "Wow" me, hell, it didn't even "Whelm" me, and going into this second issue I have to hope beyond hope that the writing and art have improved because the last issue was rough. Let's see if this murder mystery that Tim Drake has found himself in with some of the most convoluted plot elements becomes something that's not only decipherable but something that's also good. Let's check it out.
