Some thoughts about Superman #18
Jon is suffering a strange attack and their parents believe that the other Clark has something to do with it but they might be too late to stop him.
Solid but not without issues.
Superman Reborn officially begins here, a crossover has been missing in the Superman line since Rebirth which is quite the accomplishment considering how full of them the New 52 was. Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason start interesting enough by finally exploring the mystery behind the other Clark Kent and showing how dangerous he can be while giving the protagonists a good motivation to fight him while setting the premise nicely.
That being said, the issue still felt too short in terms of content. It was well-paced without a doubt and knew how to pull the emotional moments but it still needed a bit more of everything.
Gleason's artwork is pretty appropriate thanks to his great storytelling skill and beautiful style.
Enjoyable enough although I'm not sure if I will follow this story in other books.
