And Then I Read: SUPERMAN 44

As you might expect when Superman’s secret identity and occupation come out in public media, villains of both the super and regular types go after not only him but those he works with and cares about. The “Daily Planet” staff are prime targets. Lois Lane has spilled the beans for reasons she believes in, but it’s Clark Kent who has to try to deal with the consequences, and other workmates who suffer. While predictable, the story by Gene Luen Yang is good reading because he’s handling the characters in a realistic way. The art by Romita and Janson seems a bit more stylized here, and some of the character faces are a little too distorted for me, but in all, it works okay. I’m enjoying this storyline, and wondering where it will go next.
