    I could have sworn after the first few pages of this issue that the art is drawn by Greg Capullo. But it is in fact Viktor Bogdanovic's hand who made Action Comics #987 alive. The Oz Effect Part One treads on the familiar Superman trope as an ideal hero who saves the day then goes back to his Clark Kent disguise just in time to do his usual (dad) work. I don't complain. This is the Superman I want to read, full of hope and optimism and always ready to help those who are in need.

This is the Superman I want to read, full of hope and optimism and always ready to help those who are in need. Everything felt so Greg Capullo at the start. This guy Viktor Bogdanovic deserves some praise here. But does the human race deserve the Man of Steel? The Oz Effect revolves around this central theme that we, on our bare, primal instincts are inherently greedy and evil. The enigmatic character Oz goes full WW-Ares just to prove this point. And for all the crazy things that happened in this issue, he really presents a strong case. We really don't deserve Superman. Honestly, this "villain thinks he's the hero" and "humans don't deserve us" thing is something we have seen so many times already. The execution of the story, on the other hand is brilliant. Geoff Johns has been building this DC Rebirth era slowly and surely. The whole reveal at the end is just the cherry on top of this meticulously baked cake. Dan Jurgens is the perfect writer for this. It rings with sincerity among other genuine emotions. This issue felt like reading a 1980s-1990s Superman at the same time showing the readers some inconvenient truths happening in this world. That certain balance of emotions, plus the amazing reveal at the end (and don't forget the lenticular cover) makes Action Comics #987 a highly-recommended read.

    I was a long time Superman fan for years. I stopped reading most DC titles a few years ago. With Rebirth I came back and due to the recent Action/General Zod/Suicide Squad cross-over, I have been following Action for the last several issues. Have not heard of this Oz character, but I think I am coming aboard at a great time! The ending is priceless! Darn, now I will have to check out some back issues of Action.

    I was quite taken with the art. And the journey from cover to cover was a spiritual commentary on the political climate in the US today. I don't like that final reveal.

    So I splurged and spent the extra dollar to get the lenticular cover, and I don't regret it. This issue is pretty good, and I'm excited for the mini-event. I wish Mr. Oz was a different character, but it's still interesting. And I can't really say his philosophy is wrong, kinda like Anarchy in this recent Detective Comics arc. Excited to see where this goes, especially since Doomsday Clock is coming up soon. So I splurged and spent the extra dollar to get the lenticular cover, and I don't regret it.

    This reminds me of why the world needs Superman, and why he isn't as popular as he should be. The passing is great, artwork is fantastic. A tale of the times that holds a mirror up to our political climate. Very well done. Can't wait to continue down this storyline.

    Read this issue because of a specific scene that made rounds on social media, but I've gotta say, color me intrigued. I'll be sure to catch up with the Rebirth run when I get the chance.

    A identidade do Oz foi oque todo mundo esperava mesmo, mas foi uma boa edição.
