Issue Notes: This actual identity of the writer of this issue, credited as "J.D. Finn," remains a mystery. Previous series writer, Chuck Austen, was fired before this storyline was completed. Though it remains unconfirmed, Austen has suggested that "Finn" is a pseudonym of series editor Eddie Berganza. The situation is discussed at greater length in CBR's Comic Book Legends Revealed.

REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: If you haven't been reading Action Comics for several issues, don't start now. This is an enjoyable comic and a great penultimate issue for the storyline, but it is far too confusing without preceding episodes to be intelligible to a casual reader. If you want this issue to make any sense, steel yourself for some terrible comic books (previous writer Chuck Austen was fired from Superman with cause), back up about 4 months, and try reading forward. The bad news is you have to read the adventures of Repo Man. The good news is that this issue will look even better.
