Review: Superman: Lois and Clark #2
While we learn what exactly this strange new Superman has been up to during his time on this Earth, Lois is targeted by a deadly organization that calls itself…Intergang! Plus: Jon, the son of Lois and Clark, is starting to wonder about his parents’ true origins.
Out of the three recent releases by DC Comics, this series is the one I’m enjoying the most. Superman: Lois and Clark #2 is a solid second issue continuing the already solid groundwork set in the first. Written by Dan Jurgens, the comic mixes action, mystery, and some solid family moments.
Instead of playing things out slowly, Jurgens really dives in bouncing between the past and present and catching us up to where things stand with the “Whites.”
What’s really great is the classic feels about the comic. There’s something that about it that harkens back to pre-New 52 days. It’s also nice to see Superman be Superman, stopping earthquakes and just fighting bad guys. It’s also solid how the comic has focused a lot on Lois and her work as a journalist. That looks lead us into the first big bad, or at least a plot that’ll play out for a while.
Jurgens is helped by artist Lee Weeks whose art is just solid. While it feels a bit like a “house” style the look of the characters, the action, the quieter moments, it all just works really well.
The series is really solid. Its been quite a while since I’ve been excited about a Superman comic, and this series is scratching an itch showing how Superman can be done right.
