    I decided to pick up the “New 52” (that reboot has been active for two years now, so we really ought to stop calling it that, I guess) issues of <i>Superman</i>
    . This comic is set five years after the ongoing <i>Action Comics</i>
    title by British comics writer Grant Morrison. In other words, while Morrison's work is set at the very beginning of “the age of heroes” - marked by the beginning of the careers of Superman and Batman – <i>Superman</i>
    is set five years later during the “present day”.

    I was hesitant to pick this up because I have heard a lot of bad things about the story. To say that Perez's work on this title was much criticized would be a huge understatement. I wanted to sift through that, to “separate the wheat from the chaff”, to use a biblical term, because I knew that much criticism would be due to those who generally dislike the reboot as a whole.

    Well, I read it and.... I have mixed reactions to it. I think that the personal interactions, the story of Clark Kent relating to the other characters, especially Lois and Jimmy, was really neat. But I also did not like the Superman part of the tale. It seemed to be, well, not very “Superman-like”, if you will. The dark and brooding one is supposed to be Batman, not Supes. In many ways, it seemed that Clark and Supes were not the same person. Clark was much friendlier than Supes was, when usually both are really friendly.

    I was kind of surprised that this was written by the famed George Perez, whose past work included the much-lauded reboot of <i>Wonder Woman</i>
    and work on <i>The Teen Titans</i>
    , both in the '80's. Of course, the friction that he had with some of the editors at <i>DC</i>
    , as well as with Grant Morrison may have contributed to the lackluster quality of the title. Who knows.

    This really wasn't bad at all. Those who make it out to be so are kind of over the top, in my opinion. But neither is it the high-quality writing that so many have come to expect from George Perez, either.

    Chapter 27 of Lakeside Drive

    Usually, on Christmas Eve, Lakeside Drive would be alight with cheer. Cooking smells would waft from every opening, children would be checking every single place possible for their gifts, and teens could be seen meeting up with their friends and exchanging gifts.
    Not this Christmas.
    The vanishing of the 13 teens had rocked the entire street. When the police first got the call of the missing party host at Chris's disasterous party, the random disapperence had spread like wildfire throughout the town. Those on Lakeside Drive were most affected. Though not everyone's children were gone, every life was, one way or another, uprooted. Parents sobbed over pictures, friends posted lost posters all over the county, and neighbors comforted the depressed, though it was no use. In fact, it seemed that everyone had forgotten it was the "most wonderful time of the year".
    The moon cast its light upon Lakeside Drive. It met a desolate street, although it was Christmas eve. No carollers, no parties, complete silence.
    Except for the rustle of the two boys as they met eachother on the sidewalk.
    Lee Burke was one of these boys. He was shaken by the disappearence of his sister, and even though he hadn't really met Toni, he wished she hadn't been kidnapped too. Then, he'd have another kid in the house.
    The other boy was Mark Firicano, Frank's brother and Lee's partner in crime. Mark had been very close to his brother, and losing him, especially right before Christmas, was like losing a limb.
    How ironic the pair was, considering Toni and Frank were working together to lead the 14, just as their siblings were.
    Seeing Mark, Lee gave a solemn nod. Mark gave his friend a slight wave and ran to meet him. "You ready?" He asked once he was near, and Lee nodded. "Let's do it."
    And together, they started towards the forest-the Real World.
    There was no conversation between the friends as they trekked to the forest. This was a serious mission for clues. They had both heard tales of teens lost there, never found again, and both figured it was a good place to start.
    It wasn't long until the road veered away to the dirt path, revealing the forboding trees. Lee turned to Mark. "Okay, this is do or die time. Split up and look for anything unusual," he directed. Mark nodded. They split up.
    Startled by their movement, a doe, who was grazing on the other side of the road, raced away from the boys. It lept into the forest-only to collapse as if it had crashed into something. Lee and Mark both saw it, and ran to the doe. But the deer swiftly regained its hooves and pranced the other way, out of sight.
    The friends caught eachother's gaze. "That was weird," Mark commented. Lee nodded, saying, "It could be a clue. Probably just a faulty deer, though."
    In a tree at the edge of the woods, a white cat sat. This was, of course, Missouri, waiting vigilently for his team to lower the barrier and let him in. He saw the two boys with a fearful eye. "They can't find out too much," he muttered to himself, searching for something. He pulled a glove from a hollow in the tree, and, leaping to a branch far away from his spot, released it from his jaws. It dropped to the ground.
    He heard the two boys' gasps as they saw the lone glove. "It's Brielle's!" Lee exclaimed excitedly. That was correct.
    "We have to go home and show everyone!" Mark said. The snow crunched beneath their feet as they ran home, oblivious to everything.
    Oblivious and safe.

    It was okay.

    This isn't the best Superman story. I generally like &quot;realistic&quot; Superman stories but the plot of this one seems unnecessarily complex. It seems overly concerned with focusing on the relationships of the Planet staff but the actual Superman adventure takes a back seat. It's an old plot line and they tend to go the long way around towards getting there.
