Mr. Anderson has wound together a wonderful "science fiction" tale that stands on its own away from the comic book universe. You would not need to be familiar with the Superman story to enjoy this book which addresses politics, greed, human tragedy and many other intriguing themes. The book answers all the questions that many Superman readers have always asked such as:
* With all of Krypton's great science, why was only Ka-el spared the destruction of the planet? * How was Krypton actually destroyed? * Who was Zod and what evil deeds did he do? * What really happened to Kandor? * What is actually the story behind the use of The Phantom Zone?
