Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I’m almost embarrassed to admit how much I have liked this. Nothing big happening, just an old school Supes comic feel to it. I don’t think I’ll be on this for the long haul, but so far it’s fun

  2. I’ve been having fun too. The first issue felt like more of a chore, but last issue was clever. Hope this one keeps up that same level of smart storytelling.

  3. Not loving this book but something, and I don’t know what it is, is keeping me interested. I’ll give it another issue, because I’m desperate to enjoy a proper Superman title.

  4. very callipygian

  5. I’m stoked about Nicola Scott on this. Great artist.

  6. Will be interesting to see Scott’s pencils over Perez layouts. I love his layouts — and I love this cover — very Bronze Age. It’s the reason I ordered this issue.

  7. cant wait the second issue was great i just hope this is better

  8. I enjoyed the second issue far more than the first, but so far this second one is striking me as just as word heavy as the first…Ugh…I’ll go back and try again later.

  9. Another overly wordy issue, and another fight that ends with the villain saying Krypton, leaving Superman wondering whats going on.

    It’s not awful, but Perez storytelling could use some work. You would think that as an artist himself he would know you don’t have to constantly tell the reader what’s happening in the panel when we can clearly see what the artist has drawn.

  10. Six to nine panels per page, Perez and the Scotts on art and plenty of story to read [yeah, that’s right, not just look at, but READ] this book is worth every dime. Much to be thankful for this week.

  11. Man this is wordy.

  12. the art is GORGEOUS. Definitely a step up

  13. I’m supprised at how much I’ve been enjoying this series as well. It’s nothing ground breaking but, it’s solid and the issues feel like satisfying reads unlike alot of other books lately that feel like they’re over just as they get going.

    – The story concept is interesting and kind of fun! (even if the development of said story and dialogue are not.)
    – I feel like this is the best place to learn about our new Superman in his current continuity, and we’re getting droplets of that here and there!
    – Superman’s ass on the cover is ridiculously hot to anyone who is not a straight male 😛
    – Nicola Scott’s interior artwork is awesome!
    – Perez’s writing might not be great or consistent, but since there is a lot of it, I really feel like I’m getting my money’s worth. I spend 3 times as long reading this as other comics!
    Yay Superman 🙂 🙂

  15. What are all these words doing??

    Surprisingly old-school feel to the story. It’s nice.

  16. Even though the story isn’t moving forward much except Superman realizing everything’s connected, at least we’re getting a “full” story each issue. I’ve grown discouraged with others that move this speed but only build up to a cliff hanger and don’t resolve any plot point like this title has with Superman stopping an elemental. I’m looking forward to the next one as it looks like something big should happen.

  17. I really can only say that I feel it is also dragging a bit and it sounds like it will for a few more issues before we get to something a little more solid. Right now it seems like we are being fed baby food and they really arent sure when to move us to solids; even though are stomachs are craving something more right now! Does that make sense??
    Oh, well.. for me this is headed towards cancelation for me and it is a very delicate balance.
