Action Comics 996

The frustration of this issue was the 'baby steps' it progressed. Before you know it, the story is over. Superman and Booster Gold moved forward from point A to point B merely across the future city to try and save the timeline and return home. Similarly the parallel story of Lois trying to save her father, and bring him home, only advanced her across the Logamba village. The good of the Lois story was that it was alotted more page space and highlighted her (logical/varied) top reporter competency without superhelp. The sweet part was the restraint of her super son as Jon continued to watch over her as her guardian angel. The Kal story was just more of the same and not as interesting but the good part was the ongoing personality dynamics with BG, some kickass showing of Superman while NOT depowered, and the twist cliffhanger revealing his next Kryptonian challenge is the SON of Zod. All in all a GOOD read, but not great; and there was (appropriate) ACTION, but nothing that significant.
