Who is Leviathan? What is everyone upset Clark Kent is acting? Why is the mail not in the appropriate pile? Why is that cat throwing up all over the place? These questions and more as we take a look at Superman: Leviathan Rising Special #1 from DC Comics.

Writers: Brian Michael Bendis, Matt Fraction, Greg Rucka, Marc Andreyko
Artists: Steve Lieber, Mike Perkins
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $9.99
Release Date: May 29, 2019
An all-star roster of writers and artists highlight the new threat of Leviathan, but also tees up new ongoing series for Jimmy Olsen by writer Matt Fraction and artist Steve Lieber, and Lois Lane by writer Greg Rucka and artist Mike Perkins, coming in June! As Leviathan enacts a plan to take down Superman, it’s up to Lois, Jimmy and the heroes of the DC Universe to rescue the Man of Steel.

I’m glad that they dealt with the Leviathan in the room vis a vis Talia, but this issue is a whole lotta chaos without a whole lotta explanation, making for an occasionally entertaining but ultimately confusing endeavor.Matthew's Thoughts
This is a really good build-up to to the big Leviathan event, and it ties up a lot of the running stories in the other Superman related books. I really want to know what Jimmy’s story is, but on the other hand, I kind of think it doesn’t fit in this book. Same with the Supergirl bit. Leviathan has been BMB’s baby for so long it is a shame to see the other books being forced into this “event.” Still, I want to see how Leviathan plays out in the upcoming event. .Stephen's Thoughts
