TITLE: Superman ’78 #1
AUTHOR: Robert Venditti
ARTISTS: Wilfredo Torres, Jordie Bellaire (Colorist), Dave Lanphear (Letterer)
RELEASED: August 24, 2021
This one evokes its source material a little better than Batman ’89 #1 did. I credit that to both Venditti’s writing, and Torres’ art, which captures the actors’ likenesses fairly well.
The highlight of this issue for me was the scene on the city streets with Clark Kent nervously bumbling behind Lois Lane. It felt very much like a scene pulled out of the Richard Donner film. There’s a dark irony to the fact that Donner just passed away last month. The issue is rightfully dedicated to him.
