Just brilliant, this is going to be a classic Superman run, I can just feel it. In this issue I felt that Morrison got the balance between living up to the title of ‘Action’ comics and telling a complete story much better than #1. The action here was exciting and propulsive, but we also got more details into Superman’s history and background, and also more insight into the characters of Lois Lane and Lex Luthor. I continue to love Superman’s new, cocky attitude, and the whole thing is just a lot more fun and fresh. I liked the old Superman, but I like this a whole lot more. It’s also interesting to see other elements of Superman lore show up, we’ve got Metallo and Steel introduced here, as well as perhaps Krypto? The artwork from Rags Morales is career-best stuff, and Brent Anderson did a great job at maintaining a similar style on his pages. At the end of this issue I immediately wanted more, and that’s pretty much the highest praise you can give a comic-book.
