The whole world knows that Superman fights for truth and
justice... but why does he? What drives a farmboy from Kansas
to divide his life between posing as a mild-mannered reporter
and embarking on a career as a super-hero? This release tell
the origin of the Man of Steel, incorporating his vast and
colourful legend into a brand-new epic tale... a battle to
save both the legacy of Krypton and the future of Metropolis...
a daring project. Take one well known super-hero and reinvent
his origins to bring him up to date for a 21st century audience
- whilst at the same time staying true to his original origins
and taking into account the vast array of work undertaken
since the '60s.
we are left with is a tougher, meaner and sexier Superman
- one that certainly should appeal to the latest generation
of comic readers, while still drawing in the old readers.
Mark Waid performs a fantastic job of getting down and dirty
with the original story and reinventing for a more difficult
to please audience. But it is Lenil Francis Yu and Gerry
Alanguilan artwork that brings this book to life.
you consider yourself a die-hard Superman fan then you should
already own this. Possibly the most well conceived and beautifully
brought to life creation I have witnessed in recent years.
defy anyone not to shed a tear at the closing pages!
Waid is Superman.
