4.0 out of 5 stars Super different, 25 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Superman Earth One HC (Superman Limited Gns (DC Comics R)) (Hardcover)
Upon reading the other reviews for Superman: Earth One, I was torn as to weather to get it or not but as I hadn't ever given Superman a chance to make an impression on me I decided to give it a go.
Now alot of Superman fans would probably say I should of read other, more renowned, graphic novels first if I'm to give the character a chance to fit into my bookcase and I suppose in many ways that would make sense to do. The thing is, I chose to give this a go instead and I found myself enjoying a character and his origin story that I previously couldn't understand the fuss about.

The artwork is great, the writting isn't bad and the story (although it's just Supermans origin story in a changed series of events) is different, but good different (mostly).
The only thing I didn't enjoy was the aliens, but that's my personal taste. I've never got on with aliens in stories. Considering that dislike and the fact that Superman largely involves aliens, I still enjoyed the story and found myself still reading it even though I was a little detered by my personal tastes.

All in all, I can't see why alot of Superman fans don't like this one. As a first timer for Superman, I think it was worth every penny.
8/10
