Superman Confidential 5 – 14

Superman Confidential #5
Written by Darwyn Cooke

Art by Tim Sale

Hmmm…this was an okay chapter of this storyline. Sale’s art doesn’t seem to fit with Superman to me though but oh well. The thing with Superman being able to have visions of Krypton from this monster is a little far fetched…but it is a comic book.

Haha this story is a little nuts but fun I guess. Lori Lemaris turning Metropolis into a city of mermaids sounds very silver age but it is done with a modern twist to it. The art is a little 90’s and distracting but I don’t mind it too much. The ending was pretty shocking.

While the writing on this was good, it was really hard to get past the cheesy art on this issue. I mean Lori Lemaris was wearing what can only be considered a whore’s outfit on that last page lol….women don’t dress like that in public. Anyways, it was fun to get to know the character of Lori Lemaris and mermaids are always fun in a comic book.

So I guess this is Superman’s first meeting with Darkseid. This was kinda underwhelming considering how much of a Superman foe Darkseid will become. But the story was enjoyable I guess. The art was fantastic. They should get Batista on a regular book!

You know…for Superman’s first time on New Genesis, this could have been a lot better. I feel like it is just standard, Like DnA aren’t really trying too hard to write a good story. I don’t know why I feel that way though, as the art is good and it had enjoyable moments.

Was that last line alluding to Final Crisis? I am not sure. But this was another okay issue. Maybe it’s because I am just not that into the New Gods. But I found this to be a lil’ bland.

Ya Tim Sale still doesn’t feel like he belongs on a Superman book. This issue concluded the opening arc of this book. And it was a nice happy ending….I like the character of Bridgewater. But Sale really doesn’t fit on a Superman book.

This arc is Superman’s first meeting with the Toyman. Geoff Johns just recently wrote Toyman’s origin in Action Comics so wonderfully that this story seems like it will be kinda underwhelming. The opening was okay….but how many times this year are they going to tell the first story of how Jimmy Olsen got his signal watch!

I am sorry but I don’t like Jimmy Olsen…he is just an idiot. End of story. This was another okay issue, but I understand why this is the penultimate issue because really these arcs are only just okay…they don’t really warrant the series existence.

This was actually a more satisfying issue, maybe this arc didn’t need to be three issues long? Toyman is a great character. Well this ironically was the last issue of this series. Too little, too late.
