Superman/Wonder Woman, Vol. 1: Power Couple by Charles Soule
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Coming off my high praises for 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' I can't help but feel somewhat betrayed by DC. I finally thought I may be getting hooked back on Superman - I felt like I was experiencing some of my childhood joy again - until I read this graphic novel. I was gritting my teeth through the entire storyline. There was too much blubbery romance, too much dwelling on complex emotions and not enough ass-kicking. The storyline was just not great at all. It's not like this is a long graphic novel... and yet I almost didn't even finish it.
I enjoy a bit of complexity and real life in my comics but this was just too much. Luckily I was given a free electronic copy of this graphic novel through NetGalley because I certainly would have felt ripped off if I paid for it.
I'm at a crossroads here: Do I continue reading Superman comics and take the chance of DC ruining my childhood hero or just drop him into my memory bucket with all the good comic memories from yester-year and live with my happy memories of books I enjoyed?
I recommend skipping this one unless you like your superheroes written like Twilight novels.
