Another good origin story by Johns, but something was missing. It seemed to cover too much. I think if it had been twice as long, it would have been better. Also, even though I love The Legion, what was the point of including them in this? They didn't play an important part in this particular story, and I think the pages could have been better spent on something else.
And, unlike with Superman: Brainiac, I couldn't overlook Gary Frank's Christopher Reeve-like rendition of Clark/Superman. Every time I turned the page, the thought Superman has no lips! smacked me upside the face. Maybe I'm in the minority with this opinion, but Superman is so fugly in this book, that it actually distracted me from the story. I feel compelled to mention that I did not think Christopher Reeves (may he rest in peace) was fugly. He did a wonderful job bringing Superman to life on the silver screen, etc...
I would put this on your to-read list if you are a fan of Superman or Johns. Even though I think it's not as in-depth as it could have been, it's still definitely worth reading.
