Some thoughts about Superman #23
Lois and Clark are trying to find out what happened to their son and they will suddenly realize that there's a bigger mystery behind Jon's disappearance.
This issue compensated for the lack of content of the last one.
Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason bring a new chapter where they continue to reveal the true nature of the town where the Superfamily lived. The characterization is once again pretty solid due to great interaction between Lois and Clark and, while Jon is still not with them yet, his presence is still felt despite of being apart and this is thanks to the well-executed build-up to this moment.
And based on the teasers, I think we all know the villain of this story was finally coming. A villain who hasn't been seen since the previous Teen Titans book, although I'm sure the writers will ignore that particular story since they're presenting him in his more classic appearance and I'm extremely okay with that.
Doug Mahnke handles the artwork and is pretty good looking for the most part since different inkers kinda affect the work, particularly during action scenes which look less polished.
Quite solid though, excited for the next one.
