When did Superboy die?
DarthDan - 3/3/2014, 9:51 AM
Jai Lee killed that [frick]ing cover...
DarthDan - 3/3/2014, 9:51 AM
In a good way
MantiniumBorn - 3/3/2014, 9:53 AM
Jai Lee art is perfection IMO.
TheGreenRanger - 3/3/2014, 10:01 AM
Again. They continue to draw Superman to look like a child in the face. Fix it DC.
CaptainComicBook - 3/3/2014, 10:01 AM
Supes totally looks like a chick in that first cover.
BlackCat1 - 3/3/2014, 10:03 AM
Why's Nightwing not included?
DC4everLantern - 3/3/2014, 10:03 AM
Doesnt Red Hood know Bullets are useless against Supergirl???
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 3/3/2014, 10:04 AM
The first page, where Mongul is bear-hugging Bats and Supes looks so gay. Not going to lie. I had to gather myself from laughing before I could type. Is he happy-go-gay there? Or is he constipated? [frick]ing creepy either way.

^was thinking the same thing, that cover sucks!
HouseSnow - 3/3/2014, 10:13 AM
Mongol looks awful

My god it's horrible!!!!

This is what you get when hipsters start to get interested in comics!!! Indi artists my a$$!!!!

This guy can't draw, all the emotions are off and what's up with supes hair ...

I sound like Grif but I am so mad when I see guys like Hump doing ten times better than this
TheGreenRanger - 3/3/2014, 10:19 AM
What is with Supergirl's red bagina plate? Looks very awkward...like a giant red maxi pad stuck on her suit
DrDoom - 3/3/2014, 10:22 AM
The art is shit
ReadSkull - 3/3/2014, 10:25 AM
Superman looks like an effeminate elf on the first cover posted.
TheGreenRanger - 3/3/2014, 10:26 AM
Again, DC art is making all of these characters look like giant pussies.
Space - 3/3/2014, 10:37 AM
what the [frick] is up with the art?
TheWolverine08 - 3/3/2014, 10:39 AM
Greg Pak and Jae Lee is an incredible combination to witness.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/3/2014, 10:40 AM
Very weird art to say the least. Hey, at least it's different
RexDartEskimoSpy - 3/3/2014, 10:44 AM
Interesting Jae Lee cover. Looks like Supergirl has jumped on the neck-snappin' bandwagon.

I will never understand why they think that Supergirl costume is anything but hideous. Nobody said, "Um, a blood-red triangle on her crotch? Really?" Nobody brought it up?

Greg Pak is one of very, very few writers out there who can write Superman well. And Hulk, too. But his finest work is Code Monkey Save World.

JAE LEE JAE LEE JAE LEE one of the best out there right now

Can't wait to read this.
dcnoob122 - 3/3/2014, 10:57 AM
Jae lee is the best artist, man. Hes not some new indie star, hes been in comics for a long time
Klone - 3/3/2014, 11:03 AM
This is awesome.
knocturnalzen10 - 3/3/2014, 11:08 AM
doom why do u dislike jae work some much ?
BlackestKnight - 3/3/2014, 11:14 AM
on thew first cver is that a girl? or is it Superman?
pillsLA - 3/3/2014, 11:29 AM
I've been enjoying this read but what the hell is up with Mongul? I mean, why does he look like he's smiling two dudes with underwear on? PUN INTENDED.
The story line is great I'm just not a fan of the artist switching back and forth.
patrat18 - 3/3/2014, 12:18 PM
Sexy.
GliderMan - 3/3/2014, 1:30 PM
Good Lord, that art is terrible.
CavEl - 3/3/2014, 3:16 PM
Greg Pak writes the best Superman in a long while. The humor he writes Superman with should be emulated by every writer that follows him.

Geoff Johns, good luck trying to outshine Pak when you write the Superman title.

@NC - Only 4 more books until we're done with Lobdell, Geoff Johns is going to kill it.
hero1684 - 3/3/2014, 5:04 PM
FAIL
Prime - 3/3/2014, 5:34 PM
Mongul looks weird...
staypuffed - 3/3/2014, 10:50 PM
Kenneth Rocafort? I presume he'll be doing art on a back-up story. Should've gotten him to do the main art too! A million miles better than Jae Lee's stuff...
and that Benes variant is awesome!
staypuffed - 3/3/2014, 10:52 PM
wait, Superboy's dead? Oh, for [frick]'s sake...
reedrichards3636 - 3/7/2014, 1:49 AM
Just wish the interior art matched the cover. )<:
