Some thoughts about Superman #17

Superboy is about to go into one of his weirdest adventures.

One of Kathy's cow has been missing and Jon needs to help her find her but none of them is expecting what they're about to face.

Well, this was interesting at the very least.

Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason offer an one-and-done story about a kid's adventure into the unknown. The portrayals work good enough, I always enjoy how the writers depict children, Jon and Kathy's personalities and interactions are quite enjoyable and the fact that they have to face quite strange events make it even better.

There's a lot of creativity going on here in a bunch of supernatural segments that nobody can explain yet. That might be a bit of problem though, that we still don't know what exactly happened here and it seems like this is mostly a prelude for a bigger story coming up.

Sebastian Fiumara handles the artwork and is fitting for the kind of story the writers are going for which is pretty different from the usual. Not sure if I'm a fan of the overall work though.

Enjoyable but I'm more excited about the upcoming storyline.
