Comic Book Review: Superman Annual #1

Writers Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason go a little heavy with Superman Annual #1 for DC Universe Rebirth. There's plenty of spectacular moments of hand-to-hand combat between the Man of Steel and Swamp Thing, but it's blended with a life lesson for all to learn. I really enjoyed the unique artwork of Jorge Jimenez and the augmentations he explored with Bernie Wrightson and Len Wein's plant-based creation. I'm always excited when Swamp Thing is given an opportunity to shine through.

Mr. Oz told Superman he was not what he thought. Now, Swamp Thing comes hunting for the Man of Steel to discover what strange connection this new Superman has to the planet. But their contact is something neither is prepared for, leading to Kal-El battling the Earth elemental who wants to bury him in Superman Annual #1.

Superman Annual #1 is rated "T" for Teen. It contains violence and frightening and intense scenes. With Swamp Thing being involved, of course there are some elements of horror to be found.

Superman Annual #1 is available now in print and digital editions.
