I haven't gotten the issue yet (I got a gift certificate for the local comics shop for Father's day, and going to spend them this weekend) but on scans daily, they show a few pictures from #4....
    At least in one panel, Jimmy's in drag. Again.

Al Schroeder III, former letterhack (met his wife through Julie Schwartz' lettercolumns) of MINDMISTRESS http://mindmistress.comicgenesis.com---think the superhero genre is mined out? Think there are no new superhero ideas?

Think again.

SPOILERS ahead:


I thought it was funny and interesting that two elements crucial to the story--Black Kryptonite and Doomsday--were Post-Crisis ideas given a Pre-Crisis spin (From all indications, it seems this is the first time they've found Black Kryptonite, as opposed to Smallville and the current DCU; also Metropolis and Jimmy don't seem to know who Doomsday is).

SPOILERS:















I was surprised to learn that Superman's become immune to Green-K, myself, but was more surprised that they found an actual use for Doomsday, one of the stupidest characters to grace the Superman pages (and paving the way for such memorable monster-of-the-week losers like "Brawl"... don't ask).

Am I the only one who feels this series is just running the same strange for the sake of weird motif? While I adore the idea of a All-Star Superman, this is just a bizarre imaginative parody of the original article and nothing more. In my mind, a good comparison in pop culture is the new Doctor Who series. A brand new series all gussied up but outlandishly repulsive.
