Superman: World of New Krypton #10
Written by Greg Rucka and James Robinson; Art by Pete Woods; Cover by Gary Frank; Variant cover by Dustin Nguyen

New Krypton is a planet so fresh, it’s experiencing countless things for the first time. Its first spring. Its first blooms. Its first birth of a child. And now its first homicide. When an important figure in Kandor is murdered, the suspect seems obvious to everyone but Superman. But can he make Zod or the Council believe this is more than an open-and-shut case? And can he uncover the real killer in time to save the life of the accused? It’s a dark mystery, but R.E.B.E.L.S. star Adam Strange arrives in time to help find answers…even though the truth may blow apart the civilized trappings of Kandorian society in the process.

    This is why I love you guys. During the music discussion I was all like:

    Man Hysteria(by Muse) would work with he Mighty and Take a Bow(by Muse) or Time is running out(by Muse) would work with everything Norman Obsborn(The Cabal etc). And then when “Bladerunner” came up I was like man a lot of Muse would go great with that…at which point I said to myself..okay what’s up with my Muse obsession…And then you guys are all like: Yeah Knight of Cydonia with Jonah Hex would be Kick-ass!

    So yeah that was awesome, unless it turns out I’m on the “Truman” show.

    I kind of agree with you on the Marvel Zombie issue. After the Army of the Dead cross over things did get a little to weird but did any of you guy read the last one. It really brings a real closure to the whole idea the Zombie Origins and future. In fact the way it was written reminded me of Dead days with the characterization of heroic archetypes dealing with there amoral behavior. Very good read. Would love to get you guys opinion?

    I read Marvel Zombies 3 first, so experienced no continuity problem with the previous stories. As such, it was an OK zombie story, and a great chance to revisit the Nextwave version of Machine Man.

    Which makes me wonder, as a basic question of the importance of continuity, would you have liked MZ3 better if there were 10+ years between it and the previous stories. Marvel and DC are both in a frenzy of “callbacks” to old stories that may not be faithful to the old continuity but we generally don’t mind because the referenced stories are old enough to be “nostalgic” and we’re just happy that someone else remembers them.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
