    By this point if Johns, Rucka, Robinson, Gates and company have been reading these Superman Family title reviews recently, theyve probably all gotten some of the biggest ego boosts theyve ever gotten from the reading of a review. They deserve it though. As a reader of Superman comics for 20+ years, Ive never enjoyed, been inspired, and thrilled by a Superman storyline as powerfully as this one. Keep up the great work guys!

    Unfortunately, Action Comics #881 doesn't boast nearly enough plot substance to call it a success. The character's eventually revert to the clich? that began the issue on such a tired foot, and in the end the only real development to occur involved a change of setting for the Kryptonians run-in with anti-Kryptonian forces. Combine that with another ambiguous Captain Atom back-up feature, and I was left wanting a lot more from this comic. Read Full Review
