It’s a brand new year, which means it’s time for our annual YEAR IN REVIEW episode for the SUPERMAN titles I read in 2016. This is not a review of the entire line of SUPERMAN titles published by DC Comics last year, only the ones I followed. The issues covered in this episode were all published during the calendar year of 2016, carrying the cover dates of March 2016 through February 2017. I did not go by cover date.
