Superman 49: A Mishandled Build-Up to 50

Jason Book and I discuss issue 49 of Superman (DC Comics), written by Gene Yang with pencils by Jack Herbert and cover by Howard Porter. This is the next chapter of the "Savage Dawn" storyline, continuing on from Superman Wonder Woman #26.

Although I like the overall Vandal Savage plot, there are too many missteps and character moments that weren't earned. So while I liked the touching gesture from Metallo, it would have carried more weight if he had played a central role in previous issues. And this issue officially confirms that Hordr_root did not live up to the potential that I saw in the beginning back around issue #40.
