Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—This book tries really hard to be a comic book. There is a lot of action, illustrated sound effects, and even a few pictures of Superman sprinkled here and there. The problem is that it's not a comic book, and it fails miserably. The plot is simplistic and unimaginative and the writing condescending. Superheroes are so uniquely tied to the comic-book format that any adaptation in another format needs to add something fresh to the story. Meteor of Doom does not; it cheapens what's familiar with subpar storytelling.—Jason M. Poole, Webster Public Library, NY
