    It has now been a little over a year since DC put out a Superman book I didnt like. It feels really good to be able to write that. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is the perfect book to jump on to if anyone is looking to buy something new. It literally has almost everything one could hope to find in a comic nowadays. Busiek, Pacheco & Merino are off to an excellent start here. And I hope its a very long run for them. This is the best Superman book DC has put out in years. Read Full Review

    Superman #654 was a great read. Busiek is doing a masterful job weaving various interesting plotlines together to make an entertaining story. Pacheco is a solid artist who turns out a good looking comic. This is a balanced comic book that is definitely worth checking out even if you aren't a huge fan of the big red S. Read Full Review

    This is a great issue that completes Supermans return to the mainstream DC universe, and I am very excited about the near future of the series. While Superman comics are never at the top of my buy list, Busiek usually presents a quality product for any super-hero he tackles, so I might tag along for as long as hes aboard. Read Full Review

    Lois Lane, Perry White and Jimmy Olsen, who is my least favorite character in the entire Superman mythos, look and act as they should. Furthermore, Busieks new identity for Lana Lang makes sense and makes her presence less contrived than some of the other ways lesser writers have attempted to stick her into Clarks life.

    DC likely hired Busiek to deliver straightforward superheroics for their flagship character, and thats exactly what hes doing. Its back to basics, reinstituting the status quo, returning the character to his former glory choose your clich. Passable as it is, what it comes down to is boring comics. Read Full Review
