    I liked the last volume more. I'm a sucker for DBZ level fights throughout various different lands. Watching supes and Doomsday battle it out was great. This volume focuses more on Lois and Clark figuring out what the heck is happening.

    So we still have two Clarks. Nothing is really answered here. Just the fact this Clark has memories of the Superman Clark but not why he's here, how, or what in general is happening. It's interesting but frustrated. Also we get more into Lois going back into the

    So we still have two Clarks. Nothing is really answered here. Just the fact this Clark has memories of the Superman Clark but not why he's here, how, or what in general is happening. It's interesting but frustrated. Also we get more into Lois going back into the world and living her life. Somewhat interesting. My fave moment in this comic really is with Superman and his son. It's both fun and interesting. I hope to see more of that in the future.

    Overall not as fun or over the top as volume 1 but still solid. Much better than New52 action comics by fucking MILES.

    Action packed storyline with Doomsday and everyone is shocked that Clarke Kent is still roaming around. This was a fun collection but the Lex Luthor addition was a little over the top. Hopefully it gets better from here.

    'Superman: Action Comics, Volume 2: Welcome to the Planet' by Dan Jurgens will make you feel really confused if you haven't read Superman for a while, but come on in. The water is fine.

    Superman is dead. Clark Kent is alive. Lex Luthor is Superman now. Also, there is a new Superman who is married to Lois Lane and has a son named Jon. That's just the beginning.

    Superman is dead. Clark Kent is alive. Lex Luthor is Superman now. Also, there is a new Superman who is married to Lois Lane and has a son named Jon. That's just the beginning.

    The new Superman wants to check out Clark Kent to make sure he isn't Superman in hiding. Lex Luthor really wants Superman's cape so he gets it the way only the super wealthy can. The new Lois Lane is on a mission from this world's counterpart to finish a book on the life and death of Superman. Did I mention that there is a SuperWoman too?

    This collects Justice League 52 and Action Comics 963-966. It tells a pretty interesting story and sets things up for future stories fairly well. It will be interesting to see how Superman, Clark Kent, and Lex Luthor all play things out, and how Lana Lang fits into everything.

    This volume has pretty decent art. There is also a cover gallery with some pretty striking covers. I like the one featuring alternating ribbons showing Superman and Clark Kent. There are also some pencil breakdowns for some covers and splash pages.

    I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.

    I have to thank Net galley and DC Entertainment for giving me an opportunity to read this graphic novel.

    In Volume 2, the story takes place after the epic battle of Superman with Doomsday. Superman is killed, before that the world comes to know that Clark Kent and Superman are same person. Now Clark Kent with fractured left hand comes to Daily Planet to finish his investigation on Geneticron, later Clark was thrown out of the building and Superman! saves him. Both know they are not who they are. Superman takes Clark to Fortress of Solitude and tests him, the result was unexpected and the mystery deepens.

    Superman is seen married to Lois and having a kid named Jon, trying their best to adapt to their new world.

    This graphic novel revolves around the lives of Clark Kent and Lois Lane. Lois been dead! and another Lois taking her place and trying to finish the book on Superman.

    The story is not conclusive but it has its fair share of mystery and twists which will surely engage us. The art work is good, written by Dan Jurgens and pencils by Tom Grummett for That which you manifest is before you, Patch Zircher for Superman meets Clark Kent Part I & II, Stephen Segovia in Lois Lane Back at the Planet Part I & II.

    This was probably the most fluid volume of comic books that I have ever read. Right from the start, everything made sense and it continued like this until the final panel.

    After we find out about Lex Luthor becoming the new 'Superman' of Metropolis in the previous volume, we see him in action as 'Superman'. We also find out how Superman took on the real Clark Kents identity (I am still not convinced that this is true but I will run with it) and Lois returns to The Planet.

    Since the storyline was so well done, the art style was going to have a hard time keeping up with it, and it almost does. I know that this is my personal preference but I found it to be too line heavy and the colouring to be too blocky for my liking. But honestly they are just minor annoyances that I can live with, and I am sure that their will be some people who will absolutely love how the art work was done.

    Whilst reading the first volume would benefit you for your understanding reading this volume, it is not completely necessary as the backstory from the previous volume does not confuse you in this volume.

    Slowly but surely, DC Comics is finally fixing their Superman problem.

    So I'm getting into this new Superman quite well. Throughout this volume, they pretty much clear up the whole duplicate Supermans, Clark Kents and Lois Lanes. This new Clark Kent who isn't Superman is still a mystery though. I'm not 100% sure how much I *like* this new storyline but it is intriguing and full of mystery. Superwoman makes an appearance and since I haven't read anything about her in Rebirth yet, her identity came as a big shock to me. The book ends with all this being settled for t

Superwoman makes an appearance and since I haven't read anything about her in Rebirth yet, her identity came as a big shock to me. The book ends with all this being settled for the time being and a new menace makes an appearance. Something quite fresh and intriguing for the Superman.

    4.5.

    Fun, enjoyable, just a little more payoff needed.

    Part of me feels like they are arranging to everyone's preferred state of Superman by Action 1000.
