This is a great rendition of another Superman life story. It was also good to cover Lex Luthor's origins. The parts of the story were divided up will , and it was a very good story line. Well done!

Don't bother... It's not even cannon anymore and it's just a mish mash of every other version ever made. Not sure why they felt the need to ditch Birthright for this. The artwork's cool so I guess it has that going for it but it tries to be both the pre-and post Crisis version together and it's an uncomfortable fit. I don't think fans of either version cared much for it. No wonder it only lasted two years.
