Although Superman is fighting a modern threat here in the Daemonites, this issue felt very old-school. But in a good way. Jurgens and Giffen here bring to mind the late-80s/early 90s era of Superman, which was, to me, something of a golden age. I liked that the focus was more on Clark Kent here, on his troubles in the office of the Daily Planet, I’ve always been on the side of ‘Clark is the real person, Superman is the mask’ so it’s cool to see that reflected. The fight between Supes and the Daemonite-Lizard thing was decent and Helspont looks like being a good villain. This issue is a great mish-mash of the old and the new, it feels like classic Superman, but there are differences, he’s fighting a Wildstorm villain, the way he puts on his costume is new. I feel like fans who are disenfranchised with the ‘new’ Superman should check this out, they may be pleasantly surprised.
