Has Anybody Seen the Man of Steel?

Superman (Volume One) #650
Written by Geoff Johns and Kurt Busiek
Art by Pete Woods
Cover by Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson

So it's one year later in Metropolis and Superman has been gone for a year (a similar situation has occured in Gotham with another caped man) and Supergirl has become Metropolis's replacement. This issue truly blew me away. It was well-written, engaging, and I loved the art! I really loved everything about it. I have never really read a Superman comic that I truly could say I loved. I haven't read that many in fact.... but this, this was good. I liked the introduction of the new villain, Kryptonite Man. It was so silver-agey but it had a modern sensibility about it. Did I mention I loved the art? I mean Metropolis really comes alive in this issue. Much like every other one year later comic, this also leaves us with questions. Why does Clark no longer have his powers? What is Lex Luthor planning? And more. Oh and I loved the art.

I'm going to go check this out tomorrow. Havn't read a "super-comic" in years. (Used to get all the Bat-titles!)
