    Superman is back. With the movie coming out next Wednesday, two great comic series across the board, this is the respect Superman deserves. Way to go DC, you've made me a fan again. So I urge others out there who haven't been following the Man of Steel, who still think of him as an overpowered sissy, to read this series and to try the original superhero again. You owe him that much. Read Full Review

    Superman #653 was a great issue. This was simply a fun read. The pacing was just right and the dialogue was well done. I am really enjoying Busiek and Johns' Up, Up and Away storyline. This has been a well paced and fun ride. I have never liked Superman, but Busiek and Johns have gotten me into this title. That is a huge compliment to their abilities since it takes a lot of me to like Superman. If you aren't reading this title, then I think you should take a look at this book. Read Full Review
