Meet the Author

Grant Morrison
Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
         In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the New York Times best-seller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.

    This volume isn't as bad as everyone says.  Grant Morrison is mo

    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.

    After a very good volume 1, this was, for the most part, nonsensical and disappointing.  Didn't understand the entire Earth 23 sideshow.  
    Thought it was a misguided attempt to portray Pres. Obama as Superman.  Some interesting tidbits here and there,
    but it was disappointing overall, with a convoluted storyline.  Very different from Volume 1.

    Not as good as the first volume... Some of Morrison's meta stuf

    Not as good as the first volume...

    Some of Morrison's meta stuff annoys me a lot of the time. This is one of them. They re-introduce Captain Comet and bring back Lois' golden age niece, Susie. But they also do a lot of other dimensional stuff involving the death of Clark's parents. The Kryptonite man was interesting and so was the Superman of Earth 23 but the rest was kind too meta for my taste.

    Action volume 2

    This was very disappointing. I am a long time Superman fan but this was terrible & a total waste of my money.
