Just read the issue now and most of the stories were decent. The Bendis fan-fiction at the end however? The best way to describe it is: hot muddy garbage.

I don't think I've read Spencer (and from what I've heard of Secret Empire and the whole Hydra-Cap stuff...I'm not in a rush to). But I read Slott's Amazing Spidey when Brand New Day kicked off, and...yeah...no thanks.

Let's just say you're BOTH right...

Also, since when was Bendis writing Supes have anything to do with getting the trunks back?

I got the 1930s Steve Rude variant cover. I'm going to comment on the stories that had specific interest to me.


From the City that has Everything – Jurgens
This was an odd one. I like the Superman Appreciation Day stories but I found it out-of-character that he kept wanting to find reasons to not attend. Also, Lois asking J'onn to telepathically distract Kal did not sit right with me.

Never Ending Battle – Tomasi/Gleason
One of my two favorite stories. This was an ambitious undertaking. All those scenes were actually from specific Superman moments. For example that scene where Superman goes underground and is confronted by the short bald aliens is from the 1952 Superman TV series episode "The Unknown People".


The Game – Levitz/Adams
My copy didn't have this either.


The Car – Johns/Donner/Coipel
My other top favorite. Clean art and pure, simple advice from Superman.


Of Tomorrow – King/Mann
Good art and a nice farewell to Superman.

Five Minutes – Simonson/Ordway
My least favorite of all the stories.


The Truth - Bendis/Lee
I understand what Bendis was going for here but I agree that the repetitious dialogue and the odd artistic design of Rogol was distracting. It was a nice touch to add Supergirl to the action. Earlier in this thread (I think) someone made the comment that Lee had a hard time with the 'S' crest. I didn't see that. Overall I think he did a good job with the art.


I feel sorry for the hard-core haters that they can't pull the irrational hate sticks out of their asses long enough to take a look at this issue. Things like this don't come around all that often.

That's a tough call. I think their highs are about equal. But as much as I hate Slott's ongoing Spidey, and I do hate it, Spencer's low is clearly MUCH WORSE than Slott's. Secret Empire and both the Sam and Steve Cap books that led to it were just an absolute abomination. Some of the worst Marvel books I have ever tried to read.

Something like this has never come around before. Action is in uncharted territory.

I did not read Secret Empire, so I cannot really speak to it. Slott's ongoing Spider-Man effort got me to drop the book for the first time in my life, ending around a forty year run of reading the character. I am desperately hoping he does not do the same thing with Fantastic Four.

All that said, while I do not think Bendis has done anything noteworthy with his opening effort with Superman, he has not done anything I find so atrocious I will drop that book.

Yeah, I finally read it.

Thought the book started strong but gradually went downhill. I thought "Superman Day" hoopla felt REALLY reminiscent of the Flash museum, but I liked it. Kinda odd seeing Deathstroke in the background.

I also liked Tomasi's story, but I wish it was more than just pin-ups. But they looked great.

The Johns/Donner story where he told the guy to fix his life or junk it... It really worked, IMO.

Did NOT like the idea of Superman (and, apparently, Lois) living for 4 billion years.

The "Speeding Bullet" one was alright.

And the Bendis one was... useful. It tells me that I'll be happier off avoiding his upcoming work. It was the weakest of all the stories, IMO.

But it has not been continuously running for 80 years. It is not the number so much as the duration.

Plus, I do not know if you get 2000AD without Action Comics.

I read Action Comics #1000 last night and loved it!

The only stories I didn't care for were of Tomorrow and the Truth.
