REVIEWS

Boosterrific Review: For quite some time, all issues of DC's Superman titles have been episodic installments in a larger ongoing storyline. While this particular issue fails present any major events or even to tell an entire story, it does include several dramatic moments of action while serviceably advancing the plot of the current "Emperor Superman" storyline. Therefore, it is about what can be expected from contemporary Superman titles.
