    As a fan of Miller’s classic work, I’ve had to temper my expectations in the wake of more recent series like DKIII: The Master Race, All-Star Batman and Robin and Holy Terror — so it might sound like I’m damning Miller with faint praise when I say that Superman: Year One is definitely a better read than these. (To be fair, when you’ve got John Romita, Jr. operating at his usual high level, it’s hard not to find something to enjoy.) But at the same time, this book is almost assuredly the definition of an acquired taste — if you enjoy reimaginings of Superman’s origin in the well-tapped vein of Superman: Earth One, Secret Identity, Superman: Birthright or Superman: Secret Origin, you may enjoy Miller’s divergent take on a longtime icon, even if this isn’t any Man of Steel you’ve ever seen before.
