Review quote

Believe the hype: Grant Morrison went and wrote the single best issue of Superman these eyes have ever read. This rebellious, working man's hero is a different guy from any Man of Steel most of us have seen before. USA Today A ripping read. Entertainment Weekly Entertaining. YAHOO! Associated Content A solid superhero comic with good action. Time Out Chicago It's fresh air. I like this all-too-human Superman, and I think a lot of you will, too. Scripps Howard News Service Casts the character in a new light, opens up fresh storytelling possibilities, and pushes it all forward with dynamic Rags Morales art. I loved it. The Onion AV Club With a heavy dose of philosophy tied to his characterizations, Action Comics is already showing signs of being a typical Grant Morrison yarn. For those of you who aren't familiar with his work, that's a ringing endorsement. IGN Captures the spirit of what makes Action Comics great for the modern age . Strong, well-executed superhero imagery and storytelling that flows effortlessly. Comic Book Resources, Five-Star Review A different and welcomed twist to Superman. ComicVine Brassy and brash. io9"show more

Other than loving Smallville, I'm not the Superman type, being more of a Batman girl but I couldn't pass up purchasing this when the eBook was on sale for $2.99. First of all, this is a lot of bang for your buck with 8 issues collected here when you can expect the usual trade to have 5, maybe 6, issues. This volume is all pretty much background story and there are new ideas put into the Superman story that I quite liked. The majority of the book centres around the title story which features Braniac and Earth being almost miniaturized like Superman's home planet. Superman starts off with his cape, a T-Shirt and jeans, and wow! is that ever a sexy look! I wish he stayed like it; it's too bad when he puts on his tights and gets his real costume :-( In this new universe Lex Luthor is a scientist, which was a little disconcerting at first but I think it could prove an interesting character development. The next part of the story was a little confusing as it went back and forth from the future to the past, something I just don't like about Superman's world anyway. I loved the short stories at the end, though, especially those featuring Steel. Overall, I thought the art was very good and since I'm a regular reader of Justice League it was good getting a closer look at Supe, but I wouldn't purchase this title again unless a really cheap deal came up again on a Kindle edition, then I probably wouldn't be able to pass it up.show more

Grant Morrison's run on Action Comics is the best thing that happened in Superman this year.This is the second best story about Superman ever written.The first one is obviously All-Star Superman.Grant gets Superman and Clark more than any other writer.He's like the Superman in writing Superman.And this edition is perfect for everyone who wants to read this magnificent piece of art.The extras are very rewarding and show you some rough sketches and ideas by Morrison and Rags Morales.If you like Superman even a little GET THIS BOOK!!Grant is the best writer.show more
