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. Time stamps are listed in parentheses for each segment.
- (7:34) New 52 Superman: ACTION COMICS 48 - 52 and SUPERMAN 48 - 52, March - July 2016 cover dates.
- (20:37) SUPERMAN: LOIS & CLARK issues 4 - 8, March - July 2016 cover dates.
- (30:41) SUPERMAN: COMING OF THE SUPERMEN, a six issue mini-series, cover date May - September 2016. NOTE: During the episode I mistakenly referred to this mini-series as SUPERMAN: RISE OF THE SUPERMEN.

- (44:50) SUPERMAN REBIRTH 1 (one shot), cover date August 2016 and ACTION COMICS, issues 957 - 970, cover dates August 2016 - February 2017. NOTE: with the REBIRTH issues, ACTION COMICS returned to its original numbering.
