REVIEW: What a fun little story! Three siblings find an old "Sexiest Man Alive" magazine, with one page's corner folded in "meaningfully", and set off to find their mom a hunky husband. Each have their own ideas, whether Clark Kent, Lex Luthor or Superman, and imagine themselves in their households while looking for them in the Big City. Each time, they are disappointed by what they find, though Superman remains elusive despite working to save their lives in the background without their noticing until the climax. When their mom races to find them, she will meet the mysterious earmarked stud... but who is he?
In the background are Luthor's attempts at recreating Live Wire's accident, and though we do find ourselves in Lex's or Superman's point of view at times, it really is the girls' story, and what we see is usually a byproduct of their quest. Lots of fun bits (one of the kids calling another a "brainiac", for example), good action beats, and strong reveals. I even want to recommend Marlie Severin's color work, which has some nice shading compared to other issues.
Completely on board when it comes to tales of civilians interacting with the big heroes, à la Astro City, and this is an endearing example of that type of story.
