    This volume isn't as bad as everyone says.  Grant Morrison is more of a long-form writer - he plants seeds in his stories to return to far down the line.  It's hard to judge his work based on one graphic novel.  While reading this particular collection of issues may be confusing and seem nonsensical, if you read it in the context of his whole New 52 Action Comics run everything clicks into place in an amazing way.  Nothing is just a thrown away reference - anything you notice can and will come back.  The Earth 23 story, for example, may be confusing and a little jarring since it's a one-off story.  It does return, though, during the end of his run (collected in Vol. 3).  Not only that, but it offers a unique take on the whole legal battle between creators and companies - mainly the Jerry Siegel/Joe Shuster vs. DC  battle.

    I loved his run on Action Comics, but it is definitely confusing if you don't commit to the long haul.  If you're just in it for a quick Superman story, this isn't it.  To really get the most out of the story, you'd have to read Vol 1, Vol 2, and Vol 3 in a row.  As its own graphic novel, this isn't too great, but in the larger scheme of things, it's pretty good.
