Of course, a flying do-gooder causes our government to be suspicious, and they try to nab "Supes." And this Supes is *scared.* He just wants to live as normal life as possible (with the big exception of occasionally saving people from major disasters!). He eventually makes a "deal" with the covert side of our gov., gets a girlfriend, then gets married, then has twin daughters. Busiek's storytelling soars (pardon the pun) as you genuinely feel what Clark (and wife Lois) are going through.
I'm not even a big DC fan, but with anything Busiek gets his hands on, I, or anyone else, doesn't have to be. Just savor every written word, and in this case, Immonen's phenom pencils and inks. It's worth every penny.
Busiek's take is original and unexpected; it's important for Superman fans to realize that the lead character in this story is not the Superman they know and love: as such, it's difficult to even consider it a `Superman story'. Secret Identity takes place not in Smallville and Metropolis, but in the real Kansas and New York City, and the protagonist is a young aspiring writer who just happens to be stuck with the unfortunate name Clark Kent.Read more ›
