    The only real drawbacks arise out of the story's publication in monthly instalments rather than as one contiguous whole. The Kryptonite narration feels a little disjointed from issue to issue, and the book's plot doesn't move particularly quickly, but I have a feeling it will hang together better in the inevitable collected edition. This issue also sports an uncharacteristically dull cover: a static shot of Lois and Jimmy Olsen that doesn't exactly make the book leap off the shelf. Despite these small flaws, however, Superman Confidential is a quality package that evokes a certain nostalgia for the character as well as doing something which feels fairly new with him. It's more firmly rooted in character than All-Star Superman or Action Comics, so anyone looking for an action-packed blockbuster of a story might feel slightly disappointed, but for my money, this is far more interesting and artfully told than your average Superman story.

    Judging from the last panel (a full-pager), the real eruption will come between Superman and Lois. Knowing how temperamental she can be, he might want to take another swing at the lava. Read Full Review
