Some thoughts about Superman #20
After their last battle, the Kents are ready to enjoy their time together but Batman believes that there are more things to be worried about.
This arc is starting the right way.
Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason begin a new storyline by building on some of the Superman Reborn elements that they just created. The best part about this is that is just FUN. There are several charming moments like when Clark is simply contemplating his family and how they spend time together which creates a good interaction in just a few scenes.
Best part is when Batman and Robin arrive though, the writers don't take his presence seriously and make the contrast between Superman and Batman perfectly while also escalating the story nicely towards the end.
Gleason's artwork is stunning, the way how he's able to depict every scene makes the script much better. Plus, Batman's grumpy face at the table is probably my favorite image of the week.
Great stuff, anticipating the next chapter.
