Comic Book John's Recommendation:

SUPERMAN #41

STK672361

 

DC Comics definitely has something, here, with SUPERMAN!

"Truth" sees a status quo shift for Superman, as everything, from his secret identity, to his powers, right down to his Kryptonian DNA, are all taken away from him. Here, we see a Superman who is trying to survive between a rock and a hard place.

This arc began in ACTION COMICS #41, at the beginning of this month, and has ran through BATMAN/SUPERMAN #21 and SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #18. These issues find Clark in the thick of the "Truth" story, but SUPERMAN #41 is where we will see how he got here, in the first place.
Since Action Comics #41, I've been excited to pick up every issue, every week, that deals in the "Truth" arc, and I haven't been disappointed, yet!
I can't recommend, enough, to everyone to hop onto this story! Especially anyone who isn't really that big of a fan of Superman. This could change your perspective on the character, as we watch him learn to cope with the loss of his powers, and deal with being more human than he's ever been.
