The Weekly Panels of Steel #13

It seems like it's been a while since I've been able to say this, but...

Damn, if there wasn't a ton of potential for the Weekly Panel of Steel!

Just let that soak in for a second...

I had a hard time choosing, not because of lackluster storytelling, rushed art, or blah stories.  No, this time I had a hard time choosing because there was just too much good stuff to choose from.

And we owe it all to Adventures of Superman #1.

Three stories told by seven creators at the top of their game, having fun with the classic Superman!

It doesn't get much better than that, and here's the proof.


You wouldn't be if you picked this up and read Jeff Lemire's wonderful story about the potential of youth, imagination, and Superman.

Plus, it's Jeff Lemire doing Superman!  How cool is that.

I can't just leave it at that, as then I wouldn't be able to post this pic.

There's always something about Superman wrecking a car that harkens back to that first damn cover!

And finally...

If we can get issues that are a third as good as the inaugural issue was, I'll be happy.
