Superman #33

   We're at the second issue in the Geoff Johns / John Romita, Jr. / Klaus Jansen run on Superman, and I have to say that so far, it's been very good.

   It's great to see a focus on his secret identity, and to find Clark Kent acting like a reporter - tracking leads, doing interviews, unraveling the story.

   He's trying to uncover the secrets behind the "new Superman" who has just turned up in Metropolis - the mysterious powerhouse known as Ulysses.

   And there's a lot going on behind the scenes here, which we're just getting glimpses of - but it's a surprisingly sweet and touching issue, and it's wonderful to see the supporting cast from the Daily Planet back in the spotlight and being used to their full potential.

   The art is excellent, from tender moments to jarring action sequences.

   It's great to see this long-neglected title being placed in the hands of such capable, top-of-the-line creators. You should be reading this comic!
