The opening sequence set on Krypton was interesting, and I liked how similar the culture was to ours, and yet how different. Plus it was wonderfully drawn by Gene Ha who is one of my favourite artists. The stuff in ‘the present’ was a little bit disjointed however, like that one panel of Clark being freaked out by a homeless dude, which seemed really out of place. That said, it was great to see Morrison explore in greater depth how Clark Kent is as a reporter, and the scene between Clark and the cops was really great. I wonder who the mysterious voice on the other end of that phonecall was? Bruce Wayne? Perry White? Who?
1) Kryptonian culture being similar to ours was kinda lame. Morrison's Krypton seems way too generic sci-fi than a truly alien culture. I expect more from Grant. Major league disappointment there. Byrne's Krypton is still the superior version.
2) "it was great to see Morrison explore in greater depth how Clark Kent is as a reporter"
Yeah, it was actually nice to see Clark on the job, but still it seemed like he was using his job as a front for looking for trouble.
