Back To The Basics!
Geoff John's take on the origin of the Man of Steel is an action-packed, back to the basics story that unravels why Superman is a timeless,everlasting hero!
Geoff Johns has already proven that he understands the world of superman in his excellent Action Comics run.
His take on the origin of the clasic hero mends perfectly with the character's latest adventures. Through the pages of this book we see how Clark was raised,his first contact with the legion of the super heroes (a very important part of Superman's past that had been forgotten ),his first days in Metropolis and the changes he brought with him,his rivalry with Lex Luthor and a huge cast of supporting character that will affect his future!
Gary Frank is one of the best Superman artists of the decade.His bright art and humble tribute to the late Christopher Reeve won the reader's heart.Also his previous collaborations with Geoff Johns gave him a great advantage in presenting the character.
If you are looking for deeper meanings or puzzling dialogues this isn't your book.Geoff John's keeps things simple with a straight forward super-hero story that returns the character to his timeless elements.Also the story seems disconnected and you get the feeling that this story is a forced re-telling of the origin of superman just to tie better with Johns run on Action Comics.
