All hope is lost when Superman sacrifices himself to stop the fastest zombie alive. With that being said, he says goodbye to his son, his mother, and his wife Lois Lane along with his adoptive home world. That is the price of being earth’s champion. Our Man of Steel flies into the deepest darkest voids of space hoping to fade into that good night, expelling all of his heat vision so he can float powerless into the infinite black.
We start this issue with Diana pounding away with a hammer and anvil forging some kind of God-killing weapon. Moments surrounding our fallen Kryptonian comes hurling towards earth not bringing hope, but fear and death. Superman fallen in the previous issue to the anti-life infection, is coming to kill the rest of humanity. Wonder Woman, the Greek goddess, the God Killer has something to say about that. This issue sets up the battle of the heavy hitters; only one will be left standing.
This entire mini series has had many fans (myself included) reaching for the tissue box. It is deeply touching and compelling this issue is no different. Tom Taylor (Injustice, X-Men Red) is firing on all cylinders. This whole series has been so fresh and creative with emotional writing along with paralyzing and terrifying action scenes, which make this a recipe for one of the best limited runs of the decade.
