    Peter Tomasi, Patrick Gleason, and Doug Mahnke deliver yet another knockout punch with this entry into the Superman mythos. All of the oddness in Hamilton County is finally explained. Something of a redux of Superman - What's So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way? (Acti...

    What kind of a sick sadistic fuck is Peter Tomasi? Not only did he introduce the character of Jon in his first volume of Superman by murdering a cat, not only does he keep rubbing it in every chance he gets (see also Super Sons), but now there's also this? Why do you hate cats s...

    Not my favorite choice by Tomasi and Gleason. World: The art is good, I've always liked Gleason art, it's full of character and bits and pieces. The world building is okay but it is a bit wonky and out of left field. I don't really like what they did with the town of Hamilton and I...

    Rebounding quite nicely from the blah Vol. 3: Multiplicity, Vol. 4 finally explains some of the oddness that has been percolating under the crust of Hamilton County since the arrival of Clark, Lois and Jon. Also, Lois has a true deus ex machina moment ("Now we're talking!" exclaims Loi...

    Having read the initial three volumes of Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason?s Superman run, it?s been interesting to see how DC is retconning the Man of Steel throughout the Rebirth initiative. Although I have not read Action Comics as well as the crossover event Superman Reborn, ...

    (3.5?) I am really enjoying this superman series, I think mainly because of the strong family story they got going on. After a sidestep with volume 3, volume 4 gets back into the flow with a good twist about the town Hamilton that the Kent family has made home. We also get a great vill...

    [Read as single issues] Pete Tomasi and Patrick Gleason are back with a vengeance in this volume of Superman, which brings a lot of the stories from the first year of the book into tight focus as Superman, Jon, and Lois are all tested to their fullest when a mysterious yet familiar th...

    The main six-part story here is an epic Superman family story that, despite being set in and around the farm and (under) the local town, is epic, as a villain from the ?wrong? timeline makes his reappearance (I had to read the Wikipedia page for his back-story), reveals the secrets...

    Superman?s been one of the better Rebirth titles so far, for me. I?m definitely enjoying superboy, seeing the Kent?s go to the fair, and suchlike things. This volume though was a bit of a letdown. Manchester Black? Whodahell? I remember him from the New 52 Titans, but beyond that...

    Without a doubt Tomasi & Gleason are writing one of the best comicbook series around. The bonds of the Kent family are tested as an old Superman for, Manchester Black returns to wreck the peaceful town of Hamilton. In this volume of Superman young Jon is tempted to see the life of ...

    With 'Superman, Volume 4: Black Dawn,' Peter J. Tomasi continues a really great run on this title. It's one I always look forward to reading. The Kents have had a pretty idyllic existence in the farm town of Hamilton, but that is about to end. It's been hinted at in other story line...

    The good thing about this TPB is the way it portrays Superman, Jonathan Kent and Lois. It's old-school nice-guy non-edgy Superman and family, and I like that. And I thought the reveal of what's really going on in Hamilton was going to be interesting ... only it wasn't. Manchester Black...

    I received this book through a GoodReads giveaway. I'm not a big fan of this kind of artwork. On practically page one I've got a nitpick. They go out of their way to show the Kents now live on a farm way out in the boondocks, yet Lois takes the trashcan out to the curb. When you liv...

    (Read as Single Issues) In a darker, more cynical age, it is perhaps more important than ever that Big Blue Boy Scouts remain so ... for they really do have the power to change the world. ...

    This starts beautifully, with the heroism and hope of the Kent family, their happy hometown, contrasted with the ludicrous posturing of the Waynes ("Batman doesn't eat pie!"). And then Batman gets taken down by a cow. Alas - and spoilers follow - it soon turns out that this lovely smal...

    This book collects Issues 20-26 of Superman. The six-part Black Dawn story brings the Kent family's time in Hamilton County as mysteries are unfurled that have been raised throughout the run. The story features the return of an old enemy and also features highlights like Batman and ...

    Quite liked this story! The ending was rather dull/sappy though :/ ...

    In the fourth volume of Tomasi and Gleason's run on Superman a lot of the plot threads they had been building up are finally paid off. It begins with relative calm, as Clark and his family enjoy a pleasant evening. Then Batman shows up Damien, questioning why Superboy's powers have not...

    Peter J. Tomasi and a crew of artists continue the Rebirth era of Superman with their fourth volume of the Man of Steel. The Kents are enjoying the quiet life of the small town of Hamilton. That peace is shattered after a visit from the Dynamic Duo, who have come to check up on young J...

    I?m still trying to get used to the whole DC Rebirth line going on. It feels like if you miss an issue or collection though that you?ll find yourself lost trying to figure out the changes that have been made which makes it difficult to follow along with the story being told. Thi...

    "This Superman doesn't work in this day and age. The kids outgrew you. You're a much better example as a living embarrassment." Peter Tomasi continues to write a really interesting family for Clark, Lois and Jon. There's a real sense of belonging for these characters. They are exact...

    This one was pretty good. A four in most aspects. However, there was clearly a past here that I didn't understand. I've been reading comics for a long time, and although I haven't read all that much Superman in that time, I'm pretty familiar with DC and have been actively following DC ...

    Since moving to Hamilton, the Kents have enjoyed a much more peaceful existence. Yet, they still continue to sense something below the surface, something sinister that will show its face before too long. They are right.... but before they begin to investigate, Batman and Robin show up,...

    He's always been a source of trouble, has Superbrat - able to diminish generations of comics history by being, well, shit. But here he is a different kind of trouble, as is a panoply of oddsville characters that aren't what they seem, and a weird Venom-styled gloop. It's a hokum story,...

    Seriously... wow. Jon Kent is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters, and this volume had him right at it's center. I love the familial themes that inherently come with him, as well as the foils created whenever he's teamed up with Robin (Damian). And this comic was grounded in...

    It's tough to come up with real threats to Superman, and this one isn't an exception, so instead we get more emphasis on Superman's relationships. This volume is an interesting look at Clark Kent's family and how Superman will do anything to keep them safe. The weird townspeople and Ke...

    This was a solid and enjoyable read. It reintroduces the Manchester Black character, who turns out to have a greater role in what has been happening to the Kent family in the Rebirth series. Black intends to corrupt Jon (Superboy) as he had intended to do to Superman. Clark was able to...

    The humble small town of Hamilton that the Kent's call home turn out to be a sinister ruse full of powerful beings from another dimension. Young Jonathan's powers have been dampened by Kent's neighbor Cobb, who captures Frankenstein and his bride, Batman, Damian, and finally Jon. It's ...

    ARC via Netgalley. The art feels a little less polished in this volume -- I can't tell if they changed artists, there's so many people credited on this series, but I missed the beautiful lines from the first two volumes. The storyline is still kind of the kitchen sink of plots and I wi...

    I'm really not feeling this run at all. There seems to be more Superboy here than Superman which is getting old. Damien, of course, shows up for quite some time too. I don't like this crossing of the Bat and Supe families. So the story, the bad guys go after John so they can turn him t...

    Seriously... wow. Jon Kent is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters, and this volume had him right at it's center. I love the familial themes that inherently come with him, as well as the foils created whenever he's teamed up with Robin (Damian). And this comic was grounded in...

    The main six-part story here is an epic Superman family story that, despite being set in and around the farm and (under) the local town, is epic, as a villain from the ?wrong? timeline makes his reappearance (I had to read the Wikipedia page for his back-story), reveals the secrets...

    Superman?s been one of the better Rebirth titles so far, for me. I?m definitely enjoying superboy, seeing the Kent?s go to the fair, and suchlike things. This volume though was a bit of a letdown. Manchester Black? Whodahell? I remember him from the New 52 Titans, but beyond that...

    With 'Superman, Volume 4: Black Dawn,' Peter J. Tomasi continues a really great run on this title. It's one I always look forward to reading. The Kents have had a pretty idyllic existence in the farm town of Hamilton, but that is about to end. It's been hinted at in other story line...

    The good thing about this TPB is the way it portrays Superman, Jonathan Kent and Lois. It's old-school nice-guy non-edgy Superman and family, and I like that. And I thought the reveal of what's really going on in Hamilton was going to be interesting ... only it wasn't. Manchester Black...

    What kind of a sick sadistic fuck is Peter Tomasi? Not only did he introduce the character of Jon in his first volume of Superman by murdering a cat, not only does he keep rubbing it in every chance he gets (see also Super Sons), but now there's also this? Why do you hate cats s...

    Not my favorite choice by Tomasi and Gleason. World: The art is good, I've always liked Gleason art, it's full of character and bits and pieces. The world building is okay but it is a bit wonky and out of left field. I don't really like what they did with the town of Hamilton and I...

    This one was pretty good. A four in most aspects. However, there was clearly a past here that I didn't understand. I've been reading comics for a long time, and although I haven't read all that much Superman in that time, I'm pretty familiar with DC and have been actively following DC ...

    Since moving to Hamilton, the Kents have enjoyed a much more peaceful existence. Yet, they still continue to sense something below the surface, something sinister that will show its face before too long. They are right.... but before they begin to investigate, Batman and Robin show up,...

    What kind of a sick sadistic fuck is Peter Tomasi? Not only did he introduce the character of Jon in his first volume of Superman by murdering a cat, not only does he keep rubbing it in every chance he gets (see also Super Sons), but now there's also this? Why do you hate cats s...

    Not my favorite choice by Tomasi and Gleason. World: The art is good, I've always liked Gleason art, it's full of character and bits and pieces. The world building is okay but it is a bit wonky and out of left field. I don't really like what they did with the town of Hamilton and I...

    Having read the initial three volumes of Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason?s Superman run, it?s been interesting to see how DC is retconning the Man of Steel throughout the Rebirth initiative. Although I have not read Action Comics as well as the crossover event Superman Reborn, ...

    (3.5?) I am really enjoying this superman series, I think mainly because of the strong family story they got going on. After a sidestep with volume 3, volume 4 gets back into the flow with a good twist about the town Hamilton that the Kent family has made home. We also get a great vill...

    [Read as single issues] Pete Tomasi and Patrick Gleason are back with a vengeance in this volume of Superman, which brings a lot of the stories from the first year of the book into tight focus as Superman, Jon, and Lois are all tested to their fullest when a mysterious yet familiar th...

    The main six-part story here is an epic Superman family story that, despite being set in and around the farm and (under) the local town, is epic, as a villain from the ?wrong? timeline makes his reappearance (I had to read the Wikipedia page for his back-story), reveals the secrets...

    Superman?s been one of the better Rebirth titles so far, for me. I?m definitely enjoying superboy, seeing the Kent?s go to the fair, and suchlike things. This volume though was a bit of a letdown. Manchester Black? Whodahell? I remember him from the New 52 Titans, but beyond that...

    Without a doubt Tomasi & Gleason are writing one of the best comicbook series around. The bonds of the Kent family are tested as an old Superman for, Manchester Black returns to wreck the peaceful town of Hamilton. In this volume of Superman young Jon is tempted to see the life of ...

    With 'Superman, Volume 4: Black Dawn,' Peter J. Tomasi continues a really great run on this title. It's one I always look forward to reading. The Kents have had a pretty idyllic existence in the farm town of Hamilton, but that is about to end. It's been hinted at in other story line...

    The good thing about this TPB is the way it portrays Superman, Jonathan Kent and Lois. It's old-school nice-guy non-edgy Superman and family, and I like that. And I thought the reveal of what's really going on in Hamilton was going to be interesting ... only it wasn't. Manchester Black...

    I received this book through a GoodReads giveaway. I'm not a big fan of this kind of artwork. On practically page one I've got a nitpick. They go out of their way to show the Kents now live on a farm way out in the boondocks, yet Lois takes the trashcan out to the curb. When you liv...

    (Read as Single Issues) In a darker, more cynical age, it is perhaps more important than ever that Big Blue Boy Scouts remain so ... for they really do have the power to change the world. ...

    This starts beautifully, with the heroism and hope of the Kent family, their happy hometown, contrasted with the ludicrous posturing of the Waynes ("Batman doesn't eat pie!"). And then Batman gets taken down by a cow. Alas - and spoilers follow - it soon turns out that this lovely smal...

    This book collects Issues 20-26 of Superman. The six-part Black Dawn story brings the Kent family's time in Hamilton County as mysteries are unfurled that have been raised throughout the run. The story features the return of an old enemy and also features highlights like Batman and ...

    Quite liked this story! The ending was rather dull/sappy though :/ ...

    In the fourth volume of Tomasi and Gleason's run on Superman a lot of the plot threads they had been building up are finally paid off. It begins with relative calm, as Clark and his family enjoy a pleasant evening. Then Batman shows up Damien, questioning why Superboy's powers have not...

    Peter J. Tomasi and a crew of artists continue the Rebirth era of Superman with their fourth volume of the Man of Steel. The Kents are enjoying the quiet life of the small town of Hamilton. That peace is shattered after a visit from the Dynamic Duo, who have come to check up on young J...

    I?m still trying to get used to the whole DC Rebirth line going on. It feels like if you miss an issue or collection though that you?ll find yourself lost trying to figure out the changes that have been made which makes it difficult to follow along with the story being told. Thi...

    "This Superman doesn't work in this day and age. The kids outgrew you. You're a much better example as a living embarrassment." Peter Tomasi continues to write a really interesting family for Clark, Lois and Jon. There's a real sense of belonging for these characters. They are exact...

    This one was pretty good. A four in most aspects. However, there was clearly a past here that I didn't understand. I've been reading comics for a long time, and although I haven't read all that much Superman in that time, I'm pretty familiar with DC and have been actively following DC ...

    Since moving to Hamilton, the Kents have enjoyed a much more peaceful existence. Yet, they still continue to sense something below the surface, something sinister that will show its face before too long. They are right.... but before they begin to investigate, Batman and Robin show up,...

    He's always been a source of trouble, has Superbrat - able to diminish generations of comics history by being, well, shit. But here he is a different kind of trouble, as is a panoply of oddsville characters that aren't what they seem, and a weird Venom-styled gloop. It's a hokum story,...

    Seriously... wow. Jon Kent is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters, and this volume had him right at it's center. I love the familial themes that inherently come with him, as well as the foils created whenever he's teamed up with Robin (Damian). And this comic was grounded in...

    It's tough to come up with real threats to Superman, and this one isn't an exception, so instead we get more emphasis on Superman's relationships. This volume is an interesting look at Clark Kent's family and how Superman will do anything to keep them safe. The weird townspeople and Ke...

    This was a solid and enjoyable read. It reintroduces the Manchester Black character, who turns out to have a greater role in what has been happening to the Kent family in the Rebirth series. Black intends to corrupt Jon (Superboy) as he had intended to do to Superman. Clark was able to...

    The humble small town of Hamilton that the Kent's call home turn out to be a sinister ruse full of powerful beings from another dimension. Young Jonathan's powers have been dampened by Kent's neighbor Cobb, who captures Frankenstein and his bride, Batman, Damian, and finally Jon. It's ...

    ARC via Netgalley. The art feels a little less polished in this volume -- I can't tell if they changed artists, there's so many people credited on this series, but I missed the beautiful lines from the first two volumes. The storyline is still kind of the kitchen sink of plots and I wi...
