Something wicked this way comes

At Ninth Art, Greg McElhatton gets the jump on everyone with his rundown of comics scheduled to ship in May. This month, he filters Previews through American Idol:
SUPERMAN: THE WRATH OF GOG TP by Chuck Austen and Ivan Reis
MAR05 0390, p75, $14.99

There are so many genuinely good collections that DC Comics could publish this month. Why they've chosen to instead solicit a compendium of quite possibly the worst Superman stories of the past five years is truly beyond me. "For Completists Only" doesn't even begin to sum up the badness here.

IDOL RESULTS: An audition so bad the judges openly mock it for several minutes before the show mercifully cuts to a commercial.
