review: "Action Comics #825"
Writer J.D. Finn and artist Ivan Reis have created one of the best Superman stories I've read recently. This is a definite keeper. Superman faced with the choice: your loved ones or countless innocents. Add to that the evolution of Doomsday and Gog's shifting personality due to countless years to debate his choices and you've got high action and deep concepts.
Reis' artwork too is memorable. This is a classic hero story and his work is up to the task (in a way that Green Lantern's current mini- isn't, from my perspective). There are some great images, including a future battle shot involving Doomsday that has "poster" written all over it.
