No question that there's too much dialogue and the wrong kind - functional, "let's comment on everything we see and make sure no one out there's lost for a moment" - but the story and the look of the thing, judging from the sample, is fine.
You know what? If Perez needed someone in the comic to draw attention at all
in these pages to the fact that Supes is evolving it could have been something less on-the-nose and more plausible - something like "F*ck, since when can he do that?
" and maybe let someone watching the replay later comment on it in passing.
"Tell me we got a shot of him blowing the fire out. That's new."
"Jeezus, at this rate in three weeks he'll be spinning the world backward."
Or maybe the whole schtick isn't necessary at all.
When does Supes get to use first-person narrative like the rest of the DC nuVerse?
