There's something inherently fun in opening the book and having absolutely zero idea what's coming up. Grant Morrison, once again, delivers the goods on this front.

I greatly enjoy how Morrison and Sharp use their British Isles frame of reference in writing/drawing this title (and not just this issue). Faeries, wizards, knights in shining armor...it's fun, it's different, it's tripp more

The book is largely slow and plodding.

(And Rucka has a problem with what the Trumpies are doing with family separation. So say we all.)

Lois did what she does. She sleeps with Superman and does journalism. So those bases were covered.

WAIT A MINUTE. Lois Lane has The Question on retainer? That was The Question working in Moscow for Lois, right?

Only time will tell if this event is based on a shallow gimmick, or is it something surprisingly deep and complex. Look at Injustice - a simple concept quickly evolved into a long multiversal conflict. DCeased has all the potential to become a new elseworldwith its own mythos, but it also can end up being a self contained one-off story.

The story didn't progress much in this issue, whic more

Solid issue by Tom king. As long as this remains a limited series I'll be happy, it reminds me of the friendly neighborhood spider Man series marvel is doing where Spidey takes on much smaller ground level problems and inspires others rather than epic tales

Eons ago, the Monitor, the Anti-Monitor and the World Forger stopped the rise of Perpetua-but can they overcome billions of years of mistrust to work together and do it again? Plus, Lex Luthor's offers across the DC Universe haven't gone unnoticed-Martian Manhunter is aware of "the Offer." And J'onn J'onnz will pay the price.

Honestly, this issue is filler. But it's filler in the best way where the B-stories are still interesting even if the A-story moves very little

For a Black Label comic, I expected something unique. Maybe some new details on young Clark Kent. Him in school was interesting but it largely was too cheesy, the dialogue of him as a toddler/baby in the space capsule was strange and the worst of all ... Clark Kent joins the Navy?! I was hoping for some impactful stories, not a retcon of quite a few parts.

I came for Crazy Steve, but what I got was Steve From Accounting.

This was dull and underwhelming mess with some odd and dated dialogue and views of women thrown in for good measure.
Yes, I know that this is an Elseworld and is supposed to be the origin story for a younger version of Miller's Dark Knight Superman, but I have to say that this still didn't feel like a Superman s more

With a title like Superman Year One from DC’s Black Label I expected, with high hopes, for this comic to be independent and unalike compared to past origin stories. However, this issue proves to be a retelling of way too familiar tropes for the Man of Steel. We see Clark go to school as a child and go through the same routine of being classified as different and struggling to hold back his power more
