    The story is a summary of Supermans Golden Age. The twist is, he knows its all history. This is the modern Superman, confused and uncertain in a world that seems too complicated for absolute good and evil. Now he has a chance to be the shining hero he wants to be. No doubts. No questions. No failings. But is it real? Can he make it real? Read Full Review

    In The End: Despite the rather odd last page, this was a great book. It was the entire package with a well thought out story, fantastic art and a neat cover that really stands out from the rest sitting on the rack this month. It is also odd to consider that this issue is the end of an era. This is the last issue of this particular Superman title, which is kind of weird since this is one of the first books I regularly collected starting at issue eight. As a send off, it was great, and if the book is going to end it should end on a high note. Joe Kelly and Jeph Loeb, along several talented artists, sent this book off in fine style and you couldn't ask for a better last issue. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was a solid issue, but still Kelly manages to put something in his stories that hinder more than help. The thing that really saves this issue was the artwork. Not one weak page in the entire issue. I'm definitely looking forward to the next two parts if they're anywhere near this quality. Read Full Review
