'Superman #9' by Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason continues the 'Return to Dinosaur Island' storyline and also continues the tribute to Darwyn Cooke and his DC:The New Frontier series.
Superman and Jon are trapped on an island full of dinosaurs, and they've found evidence of other people who have been there before them. It turns out that there may be a survivor on the island with them. Someone who has survived all these years. His stories are wild and perhaps a bit too gory according to Jon's father. There are more cool battles with strange creatures, but can they survive and get back home?
I like this storyline. There is some nice remembrance of the past and some crazy fights with huge monsters. I like the person who survives and how Superman wants to protect his young son not only from the horrors of the island, but also the survivor's story. The art was good. I'm not familiar with DC: The New Frontier, but I may have to find it after this. I am familiar with Darwyn Cooke, and I mourn his loss to the field of comics.
I received a review copy of this issue from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this issue.
