Alright gang… I’ve never lied to you, and I’m going to continue being honest with you today.  Last week, I… I… I’m sorry, I’m having trouble getting it out.  Ahem… last week, I (just say it, man!) VOTED FOR SUPERMAN.

Whew, that feels better.

I’m not sure if this due to the fact that I found the Super-Strip to be uncharacteristically strong… or, that I found the entirety of Action Comics Weekly #623 to be an underwhelming, under-delivering waste of time…

… but, here we are!  I decided to giffify my actual vote for posterity… and so I’ll never be able to deny it.  Here’s the damning proof:

Let’s see if Superman can make it two in a row!

The Consortium is hot on the trail of our Bob Galt… and at the very same time, Clark cashes in on his favor.  Bob promised to take Clark to the Fellowship’s… uh, Retreat?  Cult Digs?

The pair head to the airport… and Clark is quick to realize that the Consortium has “eyes” just about everywhere.  He and Bob slip through an area for authorized folks only, narrowly evading… some dude… before hopping a flight on a private delivery plane.

We wrap up with another dude calling in what he’d just seen to the Consortium.

Okay, this might not have been as great as last week… but, if we look at it as a “connective tissue” chapter, it’s not a bad one.  We’ve got to get from Metropolis to California somehow… and, at least this way, we were able to see just how omnipresent the Consortium members are.  They’re just everywhere… really amping-up the danger they represent.

So, this wasn’t half-bad… there’s just not much to talk about.

Tomorrow: Ah do declare…
