God I'm so sick of General Lane, what an awful one note character, and he diminishes Lois as a character by mere association. He needs to go.

@g_man: I know. I just think that if DC can give us THIS, then there shouldn't be any problems making New 52 Supes like this either.

Not a fan of the art

because the OLD costume, with the underwear outside, make him look like a big DORK.

that's why this is NOT in the new 52. and this is why MoS had no underwear outside either.

EVOLVE or die out.

@darth_geekboy: I don't know I've started to miss the underwear a bit now. I mean in Earth 1 they made it so that the underwear was attached to his costume. Doesn't mean he liked it. They could've made it his old makeshift suit or something then have it replaced. Whatever.

I just love this series! Every single chapter has provided well-written short stories on Superman and his family / friends and while I understand many are not pleased with the art choices for each issue, I just love seeing Superman drawn in various beautiful art styles. Can't wait for this chapter on Monday!

This is one of two series I collect monthly anymore. I'm really enjoying the stories! I love Marcus To, so I'm excited for this one.

Except for the underwear this is much better than all the print Superman series since the new 52 started.

It's sad but true.

The fact that this isn't in New 52 continuity is what makes this book great in my opinion. Absolutely love it.

this series has come up with some really interesting superman stories by different creative teams, its a good celebration of the 75th anniversary and i continue to buy it every week. Hopefully,its getting the recognition it deserves.

@darth_geekboy: Outside the new costume(s) not all change is good change however.

In my opinion and from my personal experience of other people there have been enough complaints about the New 52 Superman and Man of Steel to revert him back to his "classical" status. Classic however does not mean campy nor an all powerful version of the character.

@laserlambert:

I agree, I hate Lois Lane, yet even I think she doesn't deserve such a stupid dad.

Posted by Herokiller12344

@smart_dork_dude: Maybe they finally figured out that the New 52 is getting quite a few less than favorable reviews. Because of all the cluster-f*ck continuity. That being said, I don't want Superman to have the red panties back. I hate those things.
