CBR Review: Superman #701

I recently reviewed Superman #701 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "After the short prologue in last month’s Superman #700, the J. Michael Straczynski-penned 'Grounded' begins this week with Superman beginning his walk across America by stopping in Philadelphia. The idea of 'Grounded' has divided a lot of fans between those that want Superman to have big, exciting adventures and those that prefer the quieter, more introspective stories. While I fall in the latter camp, it’s hard not to find parts of Superman #701 laughable in its cheesiness, right down to a premise that brings to mind Forrest Gump, complete with Superman’s lack of explanation, stating that he’s walking 'that way' and not much else."
