    Escapism at its best

    Sure, its corny, but much simpler than comics try to be today. Superman, above all else, is supposed to be fun, and these stories are fun to read. The artwork is top notch, and Byrne and Ordway remain among the best Superman artists this side of Curt Swan. Wolfman's stories tend to be a little darker and more serious than Byrne's, but never lose the sense of fun.

    This version of the Man of Steel had his powers dialed back a little bit -- his cape could get torn, he had to shave, and often had to do more than just punch the villains to save the day. This version was also much more human than some previous incarnations, which give the stories an air of excitement that hasn't always been present in Superman stories in the past. The recasting of Lex Luthor as a business mogul was also a stroke of genius, and was much more believable than the power suited super villain that existed in the pre-Crisis days.

    This is a fun little collection of stories, and any Superman fan will find a few hours of escape with this volume.

    Good art & corny story that doesn't hold up well

    John Byrne is always given a lot of credit for revitalizing the Superman universe in the '80s. After reading now the third volume of that task I can't imagine how bad the books were before him if this was considered so good. While I accept the time frame involved Byrne's writing is dreadful and is as with most of the DC Universe, wholly inconsistent. The corniness seems even higher than most other books in the time period. Now his art on the other hand is very good and looks ahead of its time. Reading these older books give you perspective n today's books but there isn't a good deal of actual good storytelling.
