This was a return to form after the disappointing second issue. There are some great short stories this time around ranging from Superman's impact on everyday people, to the ways that Superman is seen through the eyes of Batman and Wonder Woman, to the quirky space-faring adventures Superman can find himself on while still being able to find ways to spread kindness to others.

Beautiful first issue collecting some great stories that get to the heart of Superman.

I'll admit I wasn't a fan of the first issue, it just didn't put Superman in a situation that I would want him to be in. I'm okay with such a scenario but I don't want it for Superman and I was surprised that it was the story to start Red and Blue.

After that however there are a couple of more
