'Superwoman, Volume 1: Who Killed Superwoman' by Phil Jimenez is a story that seemed like it should be interesting, but it took me a long time to work my way through it.
In the new Rebirth universe, Superman is gone. In his place, Lex Luthor has power armor and wants to be the new Superman. There is also a Superwoman. Actually two. Lois Lane and Lana Lang have discovered they have powers. They are untrusting of Lex Luthor. Also, Lois' powers seem to be killing her. It may be up to Lana and a few surprise guests to set things right.
The art is fine by the series of artists in these 6 issues. I just really didn't care. It was exposition heavy, even during fight scenes. A lot of the pages had split points of view, which was fine, but it was just so dialogue intensive. I did manage to finish it, but I found myself reading it, then putting it down. That's never a good sign for me and graphic novels.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
