Superman, Volume 4: Black Dawn (Superman, Volume IV #4) Reviews

    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, ...

    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...

    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. ...

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

    [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...

    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...

    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,...

    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...

    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,...

    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...

    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...

    The first third is a wonderfully change-of-pace horror-ish tale. Then they undercut all the suspense when they re-introduced a D-list villain with no refresher or exposition on who the heck he is or why we should care. Then they closed with a stand-alone single volume more appropriate ...

    Some of the issues were really entertaining (it's a scientific fact that you can't not love the phrase "batman doesn't eat pie", but as an overall story it felt quite rushed and was overall just an okay read. However, that's always understandable given the time constraints the writers ...

    Collects Superman issues #20-26 I think this was the weakest volume of this series since the Rebirth era got started. There's some good stuff in here, but it didn't hit me the same way some of the past volumes have. This collection features a team-up story with Batman and Robin, and...

    La trama de los extraterrestres formando parte del pueblo y la vida de Jon para moldearlo, aparte de su lealtad a Manchester Black personalmente me parecieron bastante meh. Además Kathy me resultó demasiado increíble, y no de la forma positiva. Por lo demás, disfruté el drama y a...

    I've mentioned it before and I feel compelled to mention it again. I love this current run of SUPERMAN. Tomasi and the artists really make you feel the love the Kent family has for each other. It's heartwarming in all the best ways. I would happily read a series of comics just on the d...

    A ratos me pasa la cuenta no ser un lector empedernido de comics. Tuve que googlear a Manchester Black para saber quien era. Rbirth sigue siendo una buena serie. Buen arco aunque a veces medio confuso para quienes somos lectores ocasionales. ...

    Reading this did help me to understand some action that is occurring in Action Comics. I found it to be an 3.5 story, decent, nice introduction of an old villain...with me feeling a little sad about some changes in the life of the Kents. ...

    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. ...

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

    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...

    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,...

    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...

    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,...

    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...

    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...

    The first third is a wonderfully change-of-pace horror-ish tale. Then they undercut all the suspense when they re-introduced a D-list villain with no refresher or exposition on who the heck he is or why we should care. Then they closed with a stand-alone single volume more appropriate ...

    It seems like this book is really fighting against its own premise: What if Clark Kent went into hiding? But Hamilton is apparently ground zero for DC weirdness now. Also the reveal that Manchester Black is going to be a recurring character was a good surprise. (They're taking ...

    Now the truth about the town of Hamilton comes out. It is not Smallville, or even a peaceful little American town. Rather there are hidden aliens and forces in the town that have been secretly influencing Jon (aka Superboy). This all comes to a head when Batman and Damien come calling ...

    Some of the issues were really entertaining (it's a scientific fact that you can't not love the phrase "batman doesn't eat pie", but as an overall story it felt quite rushed and was overall just an okay read. However, that's always understandable given the time constraints the writers ...

    I always enjoy reading about Jon Kent and Damian Wayne, especially since Super Sons is one of my favorite Rebirth series. I much prefer the art that Jorge Jimenez does for Super Sons, but I still enjoyed the story line in this, even as I'm worried about Jon who goes through so much for...

    Collects Superman issues #20-26 I think this was the weakest volume of this series since the Rebirth era got started. There's some good stuff in here, but it didn't hit me the same way some of the past volumes have. This collection features a team-up story with Batman and Robin, and...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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,...

    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...

    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...

    The first third is a wonderfully change-of-pace horror-ish tale. Then they undercut all the suspense when they re-introduced a D-list villain with no refresher or exposition on who the heck he is or why we should care. Then they closed with a stand-alone single volume more appropriate ...

    It seems like this book is really fighting against its own premise: What if Clark Kent went into hiding? But Hamilton is apparently ground zero for DC weirdness now. Also the reveal that Manchester Black is going to be a recurring character was a good surprise. (They're taking ...

    Now the truth about the town of Hamilton comes out. It is not Smallville, or even a peaceful little American town. Rather there are hidden aliens and forces in the town that have been secretly influencing Jon (aka Superboy). This all comes to a head when Batman and Damien come calling ...

    Some of the issues were really entertaining (it's a scientific fact that you can't not love the phrase "batman doesn't eat pie", but as an overall story it felt quite rushed and was overall just an okay read. However, that's always understandable given the time constraints the writers ...

    I always enjoy reading about Jon Kent and Damian Wayne, especially since Super Sons is one of my favorite Rebirth series. I much prefer the art that Jorge Jimenez does for Super Sons, but I still enjoyed the story line in this, even as I'm worried about Jon who goes through so much for...

    Collects Superman issues #20-26 I think this was the weakest volume of this series since the Rebirth era got started. There's some good stuff in here, but it didn't hit me the same way some of the past volumes have. This collection features a team-up story with Batman and Robin, and...

    La trama de los extraterrestres formando parte del pueblo y la vida de Jon para moldearlo, aparte de su lealtad a Manchester Black personalmente me parecieron bastante meh. Además Kathy me resultó demasiado increíble, y no de la forma positiva. Por lo demás, disfruté el drama y a...

    I've mentioned it before and I feel compelled to mention it again. I love this current run of SUPERMAN. Tomasi and the artists really make you feel the love the Kent family has for each other. It's heartwarming in all the best ways. I would happily read a series of comics just on the d...

    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...

    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...

    "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...

    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,...

    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...

    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,...

    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...

    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...

    The first third is a wonderfully change-of-pace horror-ish tale. Then they undercut all the suspense when they re-introduced a D-list villain with no refresher or exposition on who the heck he is or why we should care. Then they closed with a stand-alone single volume more appropriate ...

    It seems like this book is really fighting against its own premise: What if Clark Kent went into hiding? But Hamilton is apparently ground zero for DC weirdness now. Also the reveal that Manchester Black is going to be a recurring character was a good surprise. (They're taking ...

    Now the truth about the town of Hamilton comes out. It is not Smallville, or even a peaceful little American town. Rather there are hidden aliens and forces in the town that have been secretly influencing Jon (aka Superboy). This all comes to a head when Batman and Damien come calling ...

    Some of the issues were really entertaining (it's a scientific fact that you can't not love the phrase "batman doesn't eat pie", but as an overall story it felt quite rushed and was overall just an okay read. However, that's always understandable given the time constraints the writers ...

    I always enjoy reading about Jon Kent and Damian Wayne, especially since Super Sons is one of my favorite Rebirth series. I much prefer the art that Jorge Jimenez does for Super Sons, but I still enjoyed the story line in this, even as I'm worried about Jon who goes through so much for...

    Collects Superman issues #20-26 I think this was the weakest volume of this series since the Rebirth era got started. There's some good stuff in here, but it didn't hit me the same way some of the past volumes have. This collection features a team-up story with Batman and Robin, and...

    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...

    Reading this did help me to understand some action that is occurring in Action Comics. I found it to be an 3.5 story, decent, nice introduction of an old villain...with me feeling a little sad about some changes in the life of the Kents. ...

    Man Tomasi is so good at setting up long form arcs, I really want to go back to the beginning of his run and see how long he had been hinting at this arc. I really liked this, Manchester Black was a great choice for villian, and Clark, Lois, and Jon all had some great character moments...
