Review: Action Comics #964

“Superman, Meet Clark: Part Two,” by Dan Jurgens and artist Patch Zircher, is a little confusing at first (since we've always known that Clark Kent is indeed Superman). So, to see a Clark Kent with no human powers and having no history of the son of El is...well not right in my universe. What also isn't right in my universe is that Clark writes the article about meeting with Superman and not Lois. In the movies, comics, and shows it is always Lois that writes the article about her day or night with Superman.
Clark's life, without him being Superman, seems very lonely. Sure, he's a reporter for the Daily Planet, but there's no Lois in his life and there's definitely no saving the world. It is definitely not going to be on my top five favorite Superman comics, but not because it's badly written or anything of that nature. I am just a fan of Clark Kent as Superman, Lois Lane being with Clark/Superman, and a man who is a Daily Planet reporter by day and a Superhero by a blink of an eye.
The Verdict: If you're looking for something that isn't the classic Superman comic, this is for you. If not, then this is probably wouldn't be something you would enjoy. Besides me wanting Clark and Superman to be the same person, I did enjoy this comic and it was well written.
