Overview

DC Comics took a bold step and renumbered the longest-running monthly comic, Action Comics, to #1 for the first time since 1938 as part of the DC Comics-The New 52 event.
With this renumbering comes a new creative team featuring comics legend Grant Morrison and fan-favorite artist Rag Morales. While Morrison is no stranger to writing the Superman character, having won three Eisner Award's for his work on All-Star Superman, Action Comics will be something new for both old and new readers and present humanity's first encounters with Superman, before he became one of the World's Greatest Super Heroes. Set a few years in the past, it's a bold new take on a classic hero.

Superman: Action Comics Vol. 1: Superman and the Men of Steel (The New 52) 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 9 reviews.

Grant Morrison is taking the concept of the 30's Superman-hero of the common man, justified vigilante-and showing his evolution into a hero of the world in one storyline. The original narrative was broken up in the monthly comics due to the artists' inability to keep up with deadlines, but here the story flows well. Recommended for fans of Superman or superhero origin stories.

I like the stories, kept me very intrigued. The art was not really my favorite, Superman's appearance seemed to always change from story to story. Great book for both fan and non-fan of Superman

Starts off strong dips in the middle and ends strong a very jumbled read superman has always been a hit an miss for me an even with grant morrison writing it never gels together yet the art is killer.

Better than All Star! The golden age Superman updated for the modern day! Unlike All Star, you could give this to someone who doesn't know Superman very well and they would understand the character perfectly without having to know a lot of backstory.

How many pages is it?

The story wasn't really that strong and the illustrations, I feel, are too commercial looking. There just isn't anything unique about the way this story looks or feels.
