Review:

Part of the reason that I enjoyed Superman #42 so much was that it didn’t really feature Superman; the issue’s focus was placed on Bizarro and Boyzarro and the so-called Bizarroverse. You can read that review by clicking here: Superman #42 Review. While Issue #43 does spend more time with Supes, the focus remains on Boyzarro–as it should–and ultimately, Patrick Gleason and Peter J. Tomasi gift readers another great comic book.

Issue #43 begins in Hamilton County, with Beacon and Nobody, and quickly moves to Metropolis where Jon Kent is face-to-face with his broken-mirror counterpart, Boyzarro. The action starts almost immediately after Boyzarro meets Superman, and before long, there are helicopters falling from the sky and our heroes are taking a trip to the Bizarroverse.

Gleason and Tomasi make an epic team and this current ‘Boyzarro Re-Death’ arc is a testament to their combined talents. Superman #43’s ending is spectacular and generates incredible amounts of interest and momentum. The Bizarroverse is continuing to expand and as it does, I grow more and more excited for what’s to come, knowing that two very competent creators are working on the project.

The Bottom Line

Wonderfully written, visually stunning, and thoroughly entertaining, Superman #43 is a must-read comic for Bizarro fans. And as interesting and exciting as Superman #43 is, the book’s ending sets the stage for what promises to be an epic follow-up issue
