    In The End: Along with the writing, Pete Woods' art made for a satisfying conclusion. His versions of both Superman and the Fortress of Solitude were great. This was the very best Superman story that has been published in years, and I almost don't want it to end. Superman, however, is in the best possible place he could be, and Kurt Busiek and Geoff Johns have proven that they can write a great Superman story. The future is pretty bright for the Man of Steel, and with the way things are going it would take some effort to mess it up now. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Jun 29, 2006

    Action Comics #540 was a very good ending to a great story arc. I am amazed that I am actually buying and enjoying a Superman comic book. This title is a nice change of pace from the vast majority of the titles currently on the market. This comic book is fortunate to have a writer in Busiek who clearly cares about Superman's character. This makes for a great comic book to read. Readers who prefer the darker, edgier and more realistic comic books probably won't get this title. For the rest of you, I would recommend that you give Action Comics a try. Read Full Review
