Customer Review

on 9 February 2006
I became a huge fan of Loeb and Sale since reading their wonderful noiresque work on Batman in The Long Haloween and it's sequel Dark Victory and upon hearing about this book was intrigued to find out their take on Krypton's last son.
Those seeking wall to wall action may be disappointed but make no mistake the depth of character, masterful storytelling and sumptuous artwork is guaranteed to keep you turning the pages.
Loeb and Sale succeed in doing what very few writers who tackle the character are able to do. Make Superman vulnerable and someone a reader can really relate to. It does this by helping us share Clark's growing pains and apprehensions about his powers and their implications (like Smallville but better).
The supporting cast are superbly fleshed out with Lex Luthor, Lois Lane, Lana lang and ol' Pa Jonathan Kent providing narratives for the corresponding seasons.
Despite the book's character driven montage there are some superb set pieces and action sequences and the artwork provides a silver age style nostalgia to a timeless Superman story.
And for this price whether or not to buy this book should not be an issue.
