Two Supermen and a Clark?

Initially excited about DC Comics’ planned REBIRTH event, I’m starting, as we inch closer to it happening, to get a little apprehensive. Details are being provided; the pieces are coming together; little by little the coloring is being applied to the tapestry, and I’m not at all certain I’m digging what I’m starting to see,… Continue reading Two Supermen and a Clark?

Could it be that I was wrong?

[NOTE: This article was written on Monday, March 21st.] I’ve been saying all along that if I was wrong I would gladly admit it. I’m talking about BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN.
