I wonder how I'll get annoyed by this latest volume of Superman: Earth One. They've never let me down so far in that regard.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion,there isn't anything bad about that,but for sure if you have already made up your mind before it is even released ,if you approach a comic book,or anything else,with this attitude you'll always be displeased by something but in this case the fault isn't in the material probably.
Considering that in the first volume Clark acts with selfish and self interested motives for half the story and in the second volume he hands a dictator over to an angry mob to let them do what they want to him, I fail to see how I can ever be won over by the Superman: Earth One volumes. It's not hard to ignore the core tenants and characteristics of Superman but JMS seems to be doing a good job writing a Superman story with a character that doesn't feel like Superman at all. I hated both the first 2 volumes based on the approach JMS took, I don't see how this one will be any different.
It's not me making my mind up prematurely according to your assessment, it's the poor track record of Superman Earth One thus far that gives me all the justification I need to hold the opinion I do. I don't approach all comics with this attitude but bad comics with bad material are bound to displease me. So I'm afraid I have to correct you here, the fault is in the story material, not in my opinion.
