This guy can clearly draw, but the personality is all wrong and who ever told him high pants are "cool" in a redesign was probably messing with him. I'll take the real Alan Davis thank you....which leads me to a tangent. Have you read Davis's JLA: the Nail and/or it's sequel? It's still a love letter to Superman and how great he is, but MM has a big role and lots of great scenes and the ensemble cast is handled well.
I tossed through the first Nail as it was coming out when I had my shop, so I recall key visuals (caped WW leading team, GA f'd-up, MM's decent redesign, the literal nail, the Amish, Krypto & Jimmy Olsen, etc.) As for the actual story, never read, as the aroma of Superman's jock filled every page. I hate stories where a single individual's absence causes every other hero to suck fail juice for the duration. Speaking of, the technique here isn't bad (very Tom Derenick) but it all comes together in a melange of icky-poo. Badness is heaped upon badness, making it a perfect shotgun filler post for many days absent.
"aroma of Superman's jock" Love it. 50% of why I read this site on a regular basis.
