Action Comics #848
Written by Fabian Nicieza
Art by Allan Goldman

As of late, the Superman books seem to be dealing with religion a lot and this issue is no different. Nicieza crafts a story while not amazing or inspirational, deals a lots with this issue of religion and forcing beliefs on others. I am not sure what exactly is going on with Clark comparing his life in Smallville to the new metahuman, Redemption's life in his hometown. They don't seem similar. Clark never had a 'John Jones' like pastor. I suppose that will be dealt with more in the next issue. So far we are not given a clue if Redemption really believes in his cause and is just a misled young man or if he is evil and killed them all unpurpose. Goldman's art is something I am unfamiliar with but I definitely liked it. He draws a Clark as a little too buff though. Other than that, I have no complaints. I would like to see his art on other books as well.
