starkiller809's Superman #3 - A Cold Day in Hell review

Superman and His Super Foes

George Perez has been writing only three issues of Superman, but it feels like he's been on the book for at least four or five. Is this a good thing for the book, or does it affect it at all?
 
THE GOOD:
Nicola Scott is an amazing artist and I think that this is one of he better pieces of work. I like her art maybe just a tab bit more then the normal artist and that is a good thing. The story is really wordy, like the past two issues have been. I really like seeing Lois, Jimmy, and Perry in their roles in this book. I really like how they are included into the story and actually have a lot of things going on with them too. We also get another fight, with another bad guy. We know that they are connected but we have nothing else to go on. I really like how it kinda trots over what happened in the current run of Action Comics, and the time between.
 
THE BAD:
We have been reading Superman for three issues now, and they have a lot in them. They are long and have a lot of words, so I'm not sure why I feel that very little has happened. We get to see three different villains mutter out the same words, but other then that we know nothing. I really hope they start giving us more clues on what is going on.
 
THE VERDICT: 3.5/5 (Good)
Superman has been a pretty good book so far, but I'm getting tired of just seeing a new villain that comes in each issue giving him a hard time and him solving it in a matter of seconds. I'm not sure what Superman was before the relaunch, but I want to see him fight threats that we think he could loose. But so far, I'm liking it. If you like Superman get it. If you like a good story, I might wait for the trade because it probably won't feel so repetitive.

    Originally posted on my blog, The Comics Cove, not too long ago...I get that the idea with these covers is to feature the villain of the month for a while, which I think I’m cool with for now. This cover is actually pretty nice; the starkness of the white contrasted against Superman’s colorful costume actually emphasizes the threat of this issue’s villain in a big way. Also, the people frozen in the ice look like they’re “running” slightly, implying even more menace.There’s slightly more explana...

    After a few battles against very different alien monsters yet all connected, we get to see the story of superman as we learn more about his previous adventures in the eyes of the public as this guy who I don’t know since he sucks since not only he will never be remembered by any of us for being a prink is trying to pull a J.J by asking if superman is either a “messiah or menace”. But we get to see that the daily planet has become a nice supporter of superman thanks to which is good and sent tha...
