Is the whole Apex Lex story still going on? I haven’t been able to go to a comic shop for a while since the one I would usually go to changed their location. And what’s the House of Kent story about? And what happened with Superboy prime’s story that was going on?

I honestly don’t know. Bendis has got me to stop reading the comics until he leaves.

I wonder who the next writer will be after Bendis leaves.
