Comics Roundup 20/9/2008

All Star Superman #12, by Grant Morrison & Frank Quitely

This is the somewhat disappointing last episode of this title. Previously, evil Lex Luthor had tricked Superman into overdosing in yellow star radiation, so that he started to die. Last issue he finally kicked the bucket, just as a temporarily superpowered Luthor took over the world (in concert with his crazy niece and a tyrant sun called Solaris (eh, yes, a tyrant sun). So it's the usual superhero bollocks after all, with a character who just won't stay dead. Nice art, though, and maybe this will impress more when all the issues are read together.

Air #2, by G. Willow Wilson & M.K. Perker

More air hostess action, but this one seems to be turning a bit more into the usual conspiracy/fantasy stuff, with far less in the way of crazy air travel action going on in it. We will see how it goes.
