Going to add Geoff Johns' "Superman, Up, Up and away !" to my list of favorite Superman stories. Has all the essential elements of a classic Superman tale.

Saw an old copy of it being sold off at a local library for $1.00 , best buy in a long time.

Good review here:

Up, Up & Away has always been a favorite of mine.

I’ve never read Up Up & Away. How’d this happen? I must remedy this!

I strongly recommend Batman: The Dark Prince Charming. Quietly a great Batman/Joker/Catwoman tale. I really should’ve seen the twist coming but I was so enthralled by the well told, simple story that I missed it.

Thank you guys for the recommendation. Awesome read. Really nailed the characters. Perfect Lex, perfect Supes and perfect Lois. I love how metropolis is basically a character of its own as well. Great story.

It occurred to me that after BvS that would’ve made a great basic storyline for MoS 2

With the news about the batman 50 spoilers, I can’t say I’m not surprised but I’m kinda sad because the story has been amazing and I had hoped dc had some balls


But I do think they deserve the backlash it has gained them.

I loved that panel. Found it interesting that so many political pundits found it offensive

What made me so pissed was Fox News calling it propaganda. Superman is doing what he does, and it’s considered propaganda. That channel is filled with broken people who decided that they need to make the world broken, too.

Just a random thought here, but has anyone else noticed how nice comic books smell?
I have a separate room for all my comics that is closed off pretty much all day and whenever I enter there is this really pleasant scent of paper and ink.
I don't think I've ever noticed this in either a bookstore or library before.

I'm well aware. I love the smell, especially when opening a hardcover book that was wrapped in plastic.

I used to do the same with my old Star Wars cards. I'd crack a pack and give it a good sniff before I even sorted the cards. Pulling a Vader or Fett just made it all the better back then.

Glad that I get to do that still with come comics.
