I forgot to mention above; one thing I do love that JMS is doing is apparently finishing each volume with a newspaper article by Clark and Lois. It's a nice little touch given that Clark's journalist side is ignored too often nowadays (although I support the idea of Clark quitting The Daily Planet in the New 52, but that's a whole other matter). And even though I thought everything with Eddie was a tad bland beforehand, the inclusion of the feature article at the end just made it work.
And mercifully, JMS avoided another Clark interviewing Superman article which was wrong for so many reasons. I mean, putting journalism ethics aside (if such as thing can be said to exist. Looking at you Rupert Murdoch), how lame do you have to be to interview yourself?
On a side note, does anyone else think Eddie looked a lot like Kurt Cobain?
