It’s not only this week’s 52 that has a cliffhanger ending; this week’s Daily Planet tie-in over at the official 52 site does, too:
METROPOLIS, December 31 —
They look up to the sky to see the symbol. It happens every year. Citizens of Metropolis flood the subways and buses toward Lexcorp Circle to pack themselves in like sardines, shoulder to shoulder, hermetically sealed inside their oversized, obnoxiously puffy coats, frustrated by the bad breath of the old man standing to their right and the loud banter of the drunk college kids attempting to start a mosh pit of sorts to their left. But when the countdown starts, it’s always the same. They forget their surrounding for ten seconds, form a smile of unknown origin, and they look up to the sky. And they see Superman’s symbol.
Or at least that’s what usually happens.
Lois Lane is apparently the writer of the journalism in question, but I preferred her piece that won the Pulitizer.
(Also, JG Jones knows what he wants.)
