etragedy's Superman Confidential #1 - Kryptonite Part 1 review

A Stylized Look Back at Superman's First Year

As much as I love traditional comic line art, I have to say Tim Sale's noir-like ink art is a welcome change of pace. This series, Superman Confidential, kicks off with a story set 2 months after Superman first appeared in Metropolis. The retro-writing style for which Darwyn Cooke has come to be known for, is perfectly complimented by this retro, almost Deco looking art style of Sale's, coupled with Dave Stewart's use of bright primary colors that seems the hark back to a simpler era. One issue is not a lot to go on, but the plot is intelligent, and the stylized art make it a really great comic.
