More insanity is bubbling as the Bizarroverse arc continues within the pages of Superman issue 43!

Boyzarro has entered the world of Jon AKA Superboy, and develop a kinship with one another as parallels of one another… that is until Superman discovers what is happening under the roof of the Super Family. But, is this a terrible discovery? How will Superman react to Boyzarro? How will Boyzarro find his way back home? And who is behind the events that occur within Bizarro World and how will it affect the rest of the Super Family and friends?

Gleason and Tomasi are doing a great job making this issue and chapter full of glorious fun! It’s obvious that the writers have as much fun writing this arc just as much as they love drawing it. There are plenty of great moment within this issue such as Superboy and Boyzarro interacting with one another, and Superman, Nobody (Maya) and Kathy’s involvement /interaction with Boyzarro that make for an entertaining time for readers that will get their hands on this issue. There are some cameos of other Bizarro versions of familiar characters that provide for as much comedy as there is action. Tomasi and Gleason provide a strong balance between comedy and action, fun and suspense all in one and manage to craft an enjoyable story that ends with a great and almost unexpected cliffhanger.

In terms of the art, Gleason is just A1 in the art department, providing energetic, and lively gestures that make the characters leap across the pages, making the story feel even more enjoyable to look at as it is to read. Joe Prado’s inks compliment Gleason’s pencils greatly and Stephen Downer’s colors add another layer of weight and power to the artwork as a whole.

Superman issue 43 is a boatload of fun and insanity in all the right ways! There a lot of great moments that add more development for Superboy and another stepping stone into his future and the potential future adventures he may encounter as time goes by ( that is, unless there is another reboot, which I hope not, at least for the next 30 years that is). It’s a fantastic installment for this arc and it’s worth adding to your pull list!
