Last night, I settled down to read Action Comics #5 and the Little Man was a bit restless. “You reading, Daddy?” he said.
“Yeah, I’m reading about Superman,” I said.
“Oh, Superman. Okay. He flies.”
“Yes, he does. Do you want to read it with me?”
So we sat down to read Action Comics #5 together. The issue was split into two stories. The first story dealt with Kal-El’s departure from Krypton and his arrival on Earth. The second part dealt with Jonathan and Martha Kent’s life before Kal-El’s arrival. As we moved through the issue, I noticed something about it, but the Little Man caught on soon enough. We were about 2/3rds of the way through when he said, “Daddy?”
“What is it buddy?”
I smiled at him. “I was wondering that same thing myself. Looks like he took a vacation this issue.”
