Comic Book Review: Superman #6 - DC Comics (2016)

"Son of Superman"

Written by Peter J. Tomasi & Patrick Gleason
Pencils by Patrick Gleason
Inks by Mick Gray
Colors by John Kalisz
Cover by Doug Mahnke & Wil Quintana

Superman along with his wife Lois and son Jon are on the moon inside of one of Batman's secret bases taking on the Eradicator.  The Eradicator feels Superman has tainted the Kryptonian bloodline by having a half human son in Jon.  It's up to Big Blue to stop the Eradicator from killing his only son.

These are the Superman stories we will go back and truly treasure.  The most powerful superhero around is dealing with the one thing that make any man weak: their children.  Superman is doing everything he can to raise Jon to be a good person but also knows that the kid is starting to gain superpowers.  With that, Superman must show him how to use his powers responsibly.  Tomasi and Gleason are doing this amidst action and great heart to heart conversations.

The art fits what is going on in this story.  Superman is a symbol of heroism and the poses within the book definitely portray him that way.  It's an absolute pleasure to read this book.

I was a bit skeptical when it came to this series.  Superman is so powerful that I'm sure it must be a daunting task to come up with something interesting.  The crew on this book are doing a masterful job and I look forward to reading the next issue.

What are your thoughts on Superman?  Are you enjoying the DC Rebirth as much as me?  Please let us know what other titles you would like Maskerpiece Theatre to review.
