Adventure Comics Special Featuring the Guardian #1 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Adventure Comics Special Featuring the Guardian #1, about which I write the following sentences: "This issue has a #3 inside the S-shield on the cover, although it's actually a direct follow-up of the recent 'Jimmy Olsen Special,' which didn't have any kind of separate numbering on its cover. This issue expands upon a single, hinted-at scene from that earlier Special, and shows what happened when Olsen tracked down the Guardian and learned the secrets of Project Cadmus. The #3 comes in because what Olsen find out here must relate to the overall Johns/Robinson plot direction for the 'New Krypton' arc running through the main Superman titles this season. And though I won't spoil the big revelation that comes near the end of the issue -- even though it's exactly what Olsen talks about at the end of the 'Jimmy Olsen Special' too -- it spells bad news for a certain red, yellow, and blue Kryptonian hero."

Tellus' appearance in this issue certainly stopped me cold. It's the first real surprise I've encountered in a comic book story in a long time.
