It's pretty good thus far. A nice fill in for Superman Unchained thanks to the blasted delays of Lee's artwork. Superman and Lana's characterisation has been top notch and the story is filled with positive writing and a more light hearted nature without losing the seriousness of the plot. It's what the New 52 and Superman has been needing for some time.

Does everyone think it's going to stay as their favorite/ 2nd favorite Superman title once Geoff Johns takes over Superman?

Hard to say but every issue of Pak's run has been fantastic (imo) Johns will have to bring his A game if he wants to top that (which he is capable of doing, he is a great writer that has done good Superman stories before)

It's the best Superman book easily I kinda wish they would just get rid of Wonder Woman AND Lois relationships and have a go with Lana

HIs fist arc in BM/SM and Zero Year issue weren't f-in fantastic. I can't wait to see what he does with it post Forever Evil.

I guess I have to officially declare this as my favorite Superman title now, if only for Unchained's grievous delays. There is no way Geoff John's Superman can be better, in terms of characterization Pak has hit New 52 Superman right on the had. This title is also far better than Morrisons over-complicated run, whose Superman I didn't really connect with.

I'd say that Greg Pak has given us the best characters moments so far. But Geoff Johns knows how to use a villain (Forever Evil has been epic).

@saint_wildcard: Possibly but in my opinion Snyder>Johns in epicness of stories and Unchained still barely beat out AC in my mind (without delays). Having said he could do it by making a Superman cosmic story I suppose but that would just make me care less about the character. I will say that Geoff is at a disadvantage because he has removed Superman's most interesting supporting character (Lex Luthor) from the playing field though.

My feeling on Snyder have been said to many times so I'll hold my tongue.But just cus Lex isn't a villain doesn't mean he won't contribute conflict with him as head of the JL. Plus Im exited to read everything post Forever Evil and this upcoming massive crossover.

@saint_wildcard: Each to his own I guess (I haven't been impressed with Forever Evil). That said I don't think that is the direction John's wants to take with Lex Luthor since he seems to want to focus on him changing the Justice League and not interacting with Superman.

I like it so far. I don't give two craps about the Subterrainia (or however it's spelled) storyline at all, but I love how Lana is portrayed and it's good to see Superman light hearted, he's been so serious in some other titles.

Best Superman title going now. Great story telling, great characterization, and great art. It shows the BEST version of Superman we've seen since the reboot and possibly even before that.

So what do people think of issue 30? Anyone? I like harrow as a character and think she might play into superman's future.
