As someone that read almost every Superman comic that was printed from approximately 1961 through 1968, I tend to be reluctant to embrace the modern artwork and storylines. A great deal of it is years of "baggage", where all of what I have read tends to leave me in the "good old days" rather than moving with the modern trends in comics action. That was not the case with this book; it was engaging, entertaining and thought provoking to an extent that a Superman comic has not done for me since the middle seventies. This incarnation of Superman, Lois, Jimmy, Perry and even Lex Luthor have an emotional appeal that makes even the older generation take notice regarding the quality. Even the sections that dealt with the generations of Supermen to come tugged at your heart as Clark witnessed the death of Jonathan Kent. There have been many iterations of Superman in the comics and on the large and small screen. The version that appears in this book is one of the best.
