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.

This series is making my stomach twist with an anger I haven't felt since I got to second base with Laura Palmer (Ray Palmer's gym teacher's daughter's cousin-in-law.) in the middle school gymnasium. Okay so that wasn’t a bad experience by any means, but this comic should be ashamed of itself. Not only do we have a narrative about Superman i...

    George Perez Is Not For Superman 0

    The Story: Superman fights another threat that freezes the city. My Thoughts:So far I haven't been very pleased with this series at all. It's not at all what I had hoped or expected it to be. Superman is one of my all time favorite characters so it's not as if I didn't want to enjoy this. No matter how hard I try, nothing about this story grabs me. The art has been the only good thing about this series so far.  In this issue we have Superman facing off against another "threat" that pops out of n...
