So if you walk into this knowing a lot about Superman, and treat this book as just an anthology of collected short stories–but NOT as anything like Action, or Superman etc — I think you’ll probably dig it.

I’ve never been much of a Superman reader outside of Byrne’s mini and Moore’s couple stories. I still know most of the referenced characters, though.

I enjoyed this a lot. I know it’s been polarizing for many readers.

Just gotta know what you’re getting into, I think.

Story: 5 - Excellent

  1. Good review! Agreed.

    If you liked Byrne’s Man of Steel mini, you might like his early issues of Superman and his Action Comics run from that time (1986-1987). Action, especially, was meant for newer readers, since almost all those stories were done-in-ones and were team-up stories.

    I have found almost all issues of each in $1 boxes at comic shops and flea markets pretty easily. issue 1 of Superman is a bit harder to find at that price, but I bet you can get it for less than $3 at most LCSs.

    Some folks don’t like the Byrne era, but i enjoyed it a lot.
