Action Comics #983 progressed this story arc in an enjoyable, yet predictable way. The battle between the Super-family and the Revenge Squad ultimately takes a back seat to Superman and Zod's fight, which was disappointing. But, there's no sign of this story arc slowing down any time soon, and I still have high hopes for the upcoming conclusion.
Dark Days: The Casting is an amazing issue and great prelude to DC Metal. It has this great mystery that keeps you wanting more. The art may not be the greatest, but you can tell Snyder and Tynion are passionate about this story and readers should make sure not to miss a bit of it.
