    One of the Best Elseworlds Stories Around

    To be honest, I don't like Superman and I probably never will. That aside, I loved this book. It's great storytelling and awesome art. Lex Luthor's charactrization is the best I've ever seen of Luthor. Best of all is the sides of good and evil is so blurred is that you can actually pick who you want to side with: Superman, Batman, or Lex Luthor (I personally like Luthor.) The ending is also one of the best I've ever seen. I suggest this book to any comic fan.

    Highly Recommended

    This is a great Superman book. True to the Superman character, but still different enough to leave you breathless. It has great depth, and could even be considered social commentary. Don't be mistaken, this is all done very subtly. The opinions expressed are unlikely to interfere with enjoyment of the book, even to those with the most extreme opposing viewpoints. The focus is strictly on story, but the depth strengthens the book greatly. Is it the best Superman book ever? Simply put: no. Lex Luthor could have been done a little better, and the last page should have been omitted, leaving us with a more ambiguous ending. However, is it an excellent, fun, fresh, epic Superman tale that leaves you thinking? YES, YES, UNDOUBTEDLY YES!!!

    A great reimagining of an American icon!

    What a great Elseworlds tale. Superman is an American ideal but what if he crash landed in Russia in the late '30s? Well, read this and find out. This book is so well thought out and gorgeously drawn by both artists. I love all the easter eggs but they were needed for this to be unforgettable. I love how even though he was a communist he was still the hero we know. Fantastic work by Mark Millar!

    I Also Recommend:

    Red Son Rises to the Top

    Millar, Johnson, and Plunkett's well-told "imaginary" Soviet Superman story is thought-provoking and entertaining. The dialogue is rich, the themes explored are surprising and add slants to our own modern lives that are appropriate to Superman stories, but rarely explored from this angle, or to such a profound level. The story is tight, well-conceived, with each episode and chapter proceeding logically from the previous. The artwork is splendid: individual, yet reminiscent of Soviet public works projects. This book is highly recommend - just avoid reading the last page, the conclusion is best left to one's own imagination.

    An excellent Superman story by Mark Millar.

    Mark Millar did a masterful job in writing this ultimate "what if scenario" and I was amazed from beginning to end. I can easily see myself going back to read this book all over again not only because of how awesome it was but because of how much depth there is to the story.
