    Great reimagining!

    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.

    Great start for a reboot.

    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

    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.

    Disappointed

    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.
