Editorial Reviews

Conan Tigard
Having been an avid reader of comics in my past, especially the Superman titles, and still dabbling with a few titles, I was anxious to read this story. Right away, I found that I didn't want to put the book down as I immersed myself into the storyline. Since I had gone through the angst of losing my favorite superhero when Superman died in the mid 1990's, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next....

I really enjoyed it. A 'must read' for all comic books fans ... Superman fans especially will get a buzz out of some of the 'in jokes' ...placed within.

...I had fun with it. I think you will, too. You'll also like spotting the names of people involved with Superman which are salted into the work. And, somehow, after reading the description of the comics' plot, I did end up wanting to read the Death and Return of the Centurion. I guess that's enough of a tribute to the work.
