Superman Vol. 5: Hopes and Fears by Peter J. Tomasi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Thankfully, the opening issue wasn't a sign of what was to come later. The book starts with a horrible American PSA about US wars and veterans; it contains no other value. Then we move on to a hodgepodge of encounters which I did enjoy. First, Sinestro and Paralax himself show up, great stuff there as I'm always up for some Lantern intrigue. This leaves one wondering what is going on at the moment in the GLU. Finally, a very interesting episode between Deathstroke and Lois which brings in Superman and hints at a tie-in with the Suicide Squad. No full storyline to hang your hat on but some good villains and battles plus the whole volume has the feel of a crossover title hinting at what's to come in various aspects of the DCU.
