It’s been a while since I’ve straight up reviewed a comic book — which seems pretty weird for someone whose job it is to review comic books — but today, I sit down with Superman #707, in which Chris Roberson takes over after the massive flameout that was J. Michael Straczynski.
I liked the issue a lot, especially as it relates to Roberson’s stated influences, and I do my best to illustrate the connection and the contrast for the people out there who just didn’t get why this was a departure from what “Grounded” has been about thus far. I will say,though, that I could’ve done without Sexy Trail Guide Lois Lane, but the world don’t move to the beat of just one drum.
Oh, and for the record, “clustercuss” was one of the won’t-get-me-fired synonyms for “clusterfuck” that I solicited from readers on Twitter. Also suggested was “tanglebang,” which I like enough to start using in my day-to-day.
