I'm not ashamed to say I love Tim Sale. I could watch this guy illustrate a text book. I absolutely love his art and the way he takes readers back in time. Here, teamed with Darwyn Cooke who also has a talent for time travel, we get an reimagined tale of the first time Clark experiences Kryptonite. Overall the story was fantastic. I loved Luthor having a rival on his level and the scenes with the Kents in Smallville were great. Like I said, the art is the star of the book and almost perfect other than Jimmy looking too young. The story was close to perfect as well with a few minor points in time hang-ups for me. Overall this is a very very good book and can be read by anyone no matter their opinions of Superman.
