    Everything about this story works. The interesting point of view of Ma as narrator. The concept of a Superman who is sad about what he can't do. The country boy having dinner with his Ma ending. The superb artwork perfectly capturing the tone of the story. Everything works. It is wonderful. So another great issue showcasing parts of the Superman legend I will always love. Read Full Review

    DeMatteis arrives at the stories conclusion very haphazardly. Though the seeds of it can be traced back throughout, it still makes a significant leap from where it is to where it needs to be. The conclusion is still great but its impact is undermined. This is due in part to a very strange panel sequence in the middle of the book. Though on a more careful read the audience can understand what has transpired, the way in which it is presented is terribly confusion to the point that many may believe there is an error in the file. Still, at the cost of the issue, Camuncoli's art and the colouring on the issue by Tony Avina are bursting with energy and the story's closing is interesting enough to make this worth picking up.

    This is the first real disappointment from Adventures of Superman. Some pretty decent artwork cant save the half-baked story presented here. The good news is that we only have to wait a week for another fresh take on the icon. Read Full Review

    I really liked this story. The flow is slightly unconventional, but it can be excused because the story is only one issue long. I wish it was two honestly. There is so much that could have been fit in the story. Basically, there is a man who appears to be following Superman around Metropolis. Of course, all isn't what it seems to be. I won't spoil the story but in one small issue this story explores two very different philosophies about having a Superman in the world what it means. This issue is brilliantly written and even though I expected part of the twist, I enjoyed the ending. Go pick it up.
