Abuse In My Backyard


Superman #705
Written by J. Michael Straczynski
Art by Wellington Dias and Eddy Barrows


This is JMS’s last issue on this series as he ditched his duties on this book and Wonder Woman in a completely unprofessional manner. But anyways, I liked the story of the abused kid and all. Most of the issue takes place in Mount Prospect, IL. I grew up in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago and my parents actually live in Mount Prospect now so this was kinda cool…although it’s sad that the abused kid has to come from there. There was nothing Mount Prospecty about the art though as Barrows drew it like any suburb but still…cool to see the town mentioned.
