I really enjoyed it. I liked the depiction of the New Gods as beings truly beyond humanity, I loved the exploration of the Monitors and the Multiverse in Superman Beyond, and I loved the scope of it.
It certainly has its fair share of flaws. The dialogue is stilted, Mandrakk should have been built up better, and a lot of the minor plot elements were not fleshed out enough (The Earth-51 plan, the Zoo Crew, etc.). The clusterfuck surrounding the publication of the series didn't help (Countdown, J.G. Jones dropping off the book, not making Superman Beyond part of the main series). That said, I really enjoy the story despite its flaws, and it reads much better separated from the grind and continuity of monthly comics.
