The battle rages on and there's one particular scene that stands out from the rest as Cyborg makes a last ditch effort to stop the collectors. With the push DC seemed to be giving Cyborg, I'm glad to see it wasn't done in jest. He continues to prove his worth here in a very dramatic scene that's paced out incredibly well with a great reveal. Based on that alone, I would love to see Charles Soule tackle Cyborg in an on-going series.
The art is different, but very enjoyable. Thony Silas, with Tomeu Morey and Ulises Arreola on colors, provide a bit ore stylistic version of the characters everyone is used to in this series. Silas does a formidable job at showing movement throughout each scene through little things like the way the cape is blowing or how someone's hair flows in each panel.
The issue is fun, don't get me wrong. It really does keep in tone with the rest of the story and provides an issue that will want you to keep reading. Again, as far as Superman stories go in the New 52, this is one of the better ones.The issue provides a lot of entertainment, which is exactly what you want.
Once again, the roller coaster that is Superman: Doomed hits a slump. The story has been going on for quite some time and it is wearing thin. I've been a huge fan of of this story line as a whole, but jumping between the books, each week, is giving me the spins. There a lot of elements to this issue I really loved, but overall, I felt empty, like not much had been accomplished.
The ending of this issue was incredibly disappointing. The story feels like it's backtracking at this point and when you have a story going on for this long, through so many books, it just becomes so frustrating to read. Without giving anything away, what happens at the end, it feels like a step back. I was also hoping for a bit more with Mongul, but as soon as he comes out of the Phantom Zone, he heads back in. His part in this story isn't finished, but it's frustrating for fans to not see the reveal page from last week not pay off.
I was very split on this book. It's almost a 4 but because this book seems to do so much backtracking, it just didn't make sense. It still is a solid read and what's being done with Superman and Wonder Woman here is interesting and could lead one awesome conclusion. Overall, this was an ok read and I mildly recommend it.
