Free Comic Book Day 1 May 2010

(SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers. Don't read it before you've read the comic.)

"Fillng in the Blanks"

ROLL CALL: Mon-El, also Superboy (Conner), Supergirl
CUTE BOYS: Chris (looking real grown-up), Conner, Jimmy Olsen (all dripping wet & tuff-looking), Mon

Basically a catch-up story that gives a basic recap of Brainiac, World of New Krypton, and Last Stand of New Krypton (minus any Legion involvement, which would certainly have made the story better). If these 9 pages had appeared two years ago, they would have spared a whole lot of misery. Now if only they would publish an additional page or two summarizing War of the Supermen, we wouldn't have to slog thought that almost certain train wreck.

If you want to see Kal-El fighting Zod and a bunch of Kryptonians, Smallville does it a lot better. And with more cute boys.

Astonishingly, there are two stories in this issue, and neither one of them includes a gorilla or any other sort of ape.
