Superman #698

                First off, at the beginning of the comic it says, "Read Supergirl #51 Before Going Further!" You don't have to, the comic was enjoyable with out it. In this issue, Superman has been captured by Brainiac and Lex Luthor. Mon-El is fighting his way to save him, and on New Krypton, Zod, Ursa, and all of the citizens, are fighting Brainiac's drones. This comic was OK, enjoyable, but just OK. In the beginning part of the book, Lex Luthor and Brainiac, are talking to Superman, this scene looks slightly like the cover of Geoff Johns's: Superman,  Brainiac.  I thought there was going to be a huge monolog here that would change the course of the Superman comic line, but I was disappointed, even if Lex Luthor made a funny joke. Then we go back to Mon-El, who by the way is hearing voices, and he is about tho fight some huge wolf looking lion things, and I have no idea why. Sure you got one cool fight panel, but huge wolf, lion things? After that, something rally predictable happened, but equally exiting, Superman broke free. The event was short lived, because Luthor put a gun to the side of a bottled city. I won't go any further with the plot, because I don't want to be a person who gives out spoilers.
           As usual, I have to comment about the art. Superman comics are always drawn with a sort of rounded edge, no edge is sharp, if you know what I mean. After reading several, action packed comics, it's easy for my eye just to see almost softness in art.
            Read this comic, not because it's the best thing you will ever read, but read it because it will  be important later.
