About this item
SUPERMAN EARTH ONE HC VOL 02 Publishers Weekly,This is DC's fourth try in the past 10 years to reintroduce Superman to a general audience. The story is familiar enough: Clark Kent shows up in Metropolis and becomes a reporter with the Daily Planet. No sooner has he settled into his role than an alien invasion forces him to introduce the world to Superman. The success of any reboot depends on how exciting the creative team can make the classic beats, and how fresh the updated elements feel. Writer Straczynski (Rising Stars) and artist Davis (Green Lantern) do well enough with the familiar parts of the story. Reporter Clark hits the right mild-mannered notes, and Superman looks and feels super. The updating has its moments as well. Davis's art is dynamic, and his costume design adds a few grace notes to the iconic red-and-blue union suit. Straczynski's introduction of an alien menace with personal ties to Superman's home planet of Krypton is inspired, too. But other revisions are awkward: Clark's job search (which includes legend-making tryouts with pro sports teams and brilliant interviews with Fortune 500 companies) requires inconsistent characterization, and the Web-free Daily Planet seems quaint for a 2010 newspaper. Nonetheless, the built-in audience of Superman die-hards and Straczynski fans should all be happy to see a new treatment of a classic hero. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
