‘Superman #27’ (review)

Written by Brian Michael Bendis
Art by Ivan Reis
Published by DC Comics


We are in the final issues of Brian Michael Bendis’s run on the Superman titles.

I am looking forward to what is beyond them to be perfectly honest. This run ran out of steam awhile back and now it is just time to move on. Hopefully, it will be to a much better place.

So, Superman is at odds with the villainous Synmar.

Superman doesn’t understand how to fight Synmar as it is unlike anything that he has encountered before. We get to see Clark questioning how to move forward. He thinks that he has a plan.

Clark decides that he has to reinvent himself.

So he goes off to space to a part of the galaxy that he has never seen before. I will give kudos to artist Ivan Reis. He definitely draws an imaginative version of this part of space. His art is unarguably great.

He finds our what he needs to know but the journey back home might be harder than he anticipated.

We get to see Clark in a really bad place. But we know he will get through it and Bendis barely pretends he won’t. All of the drama is sucked right out of this.

This run will be over soon. I look forward to seeing what a new creative team can do with this.

Overall, this comic is pretty thin. Most of Bendis’s run has been thin.

I hope for something better next.
