What exactly was incoherent about it? Once again Morrison is bringing things together that he has touched upon prior in the arc. Granted, it can throw you off at times, but I really enjoyed Action Comics #17. Just the sheer level of interference that Lord V (I can't spell his full name) has caused is staggering...and Morrison using the Legion to fix the damage is brilliant. I have agreed that this entire run has been erratic and disjointed. In many ways I would have preferred we just got the original opening arc as Grant planned.
The Sholly Fisch back up story with Jonathan and Clark was awesome. Fisch has been doing great work. He deserves a title of his own, with Sprouse on art.
