Superman: Yang

This is quite long and has a lot of things going on. It's way too complicated to go on and on about the plot. I really didn't like where this went with Superman and can't say I'm looking forward to the new change. A lot of the story was missing in this trade with big gaps in the plot taking place in cross-overs. There are three or four breaks where there is a page of text summarising what happened in two other trades. I've never seen this done before and didn't like knowing that so much of the story was happening in other books. The artwork is done by a lot of artists and style changes frequently, some of it is awful and some is not too bad. Some parts of the story were pretty good but overall I was just plain annoyed with where the whole thing ended up. Not too happy about the state of Superman at this point.
