Exclusive Preview: SUPERMAN #21

As if Hector Hammond wasn't enough of a problem for Superman, looks like he'll have someone else to deal with. At least she's better looking than Hector.

It's like somebody put in the code for the Big Head cheat

Love it! :) Rocafort's art never does disappoint and in Lobdell's run so far Superman has been alot better, at least in my opinion.

Yeah, it feels kinda cheesy, but not so cheesy that it's offputting. And I totally love Rockaforts art... and ladies.

Of all the stupid bad guys I've seen, MODOK and Hector Hammond's appearances just take the biscuit.

Can't wait for this issue, even if the stories were terrible, Rockafort's art is sooooo good.

Oh my God that Art!!! <3 and looks like Lobdell's got an interesting original story in the works so I'm game.

Man I miss Rocafort on Red Hood and the Outlaws.

I love Kenneth Rocaforts art in Superman. its the best ive seen of the man of steel in my own opinion.

Posted by Kerrigan

Art looks great. Lobdell is stuck in like 1993. DC's heavy reliance on him is baffling.

Could never get into Hector Hammond that much, always looked like a deformed, rejected Sinestro Cousin lol

Crap comic.

I know it's supposed to be a sexy bath scene, but I couldn't stop staring at her Lady Gaga hat.

Also for all the power and backstory Hammond has, that fact that artists continue to draw him looking doofy will never make him a cool villain.

interesting take on queen bee. superman and action comics have really stepped up their game

Posted by Omega-Man

Though I do like Superman comics Rocafort isn't the best Artist, Cully Hamner is much more may taste than this too bad he only did one Action Comics Annual for the 52 I'd rather have him doing art than Rocafort plus I'm getting tired of people kissing the guys backside. He's not the best artist in DC. Sure his art is nice but it's not as good as people are making it out to be.

@kerrigan: To be fair the heads of DC are trapped in 93. Art is great I just wish there was a better writer would love to see them give a book to Seeley

Posted by Saren

I can't be the only person who thinks she looks like a facsimile of Magik.

Mediocre writing, hashed scripting and useless plots. Sounds like typical Lobdell writing to me. Still Rocafort is drawing on form. The Hive Queen is depicted very well I must say.
