Back in 1986, DC Comics undertook what was supposed to be a reboot and simplification of their universe after the events of "Crisis on Infinite Earths". (It turned out to be just the first of many such attempts, the latest of which is the so-called "New 52".)
In '87, DC tried to have their cake and eat it, too, which turned out to be a mixed blessing. Some titles, for example "Wonder Woman", were TRUE reboots where the character's origin (if not entirely reinvented) was retold and the character reintroduced into the universe as if none of the other characters had ever met them. Some, like "Superman", while starting over again with a new #1 issue, were supposed to have had years of history in the universe already.
When this "Superman #1" came out, there had already been a six-issue mini-series called "Man of Steel" which retold the origin (rocketed to Earth from Krypton as a baby, duh), had Superman's first meetings with characters like Batman, and retold versions of some classic stories (Lori Lemaris). So, by the time this issue came out, even in the "new" continuity, Superman had supposedly had years of history.
Even though fan favorite John Byrne was apparently given control of the Superman reboot, I've always felt his hands must have been tied a bit. While he did an admirable job of trying to modernize Superman a bit, I believe the end result wasn't very well done. Byrne left the line after a few short years, and Superman continued much the same afterward. Even many of Byrne's meager changes were gone pretty quickly.Read more ›
The comic though is really disappointing. The Superman graphics from way way back when I would lay down my 12 cents for the latest copy were never all that great. But these graphics are rudimentary. The positive though is way back when Lois Lane was sexless. No breasts at all. Even Barbies were better built. This Lois looks kind of like a hooker, but by comparison that's not a bad thing at all.
The story had no originality at all. The supervillain armed with kryptonite was cliche when the comic cost a dime.BORING...
The story telling is in the "interior monologue" style. There are pages where Superman is exploring a lab and we've got thought bubbles constantly updating us on why he is doing what he is doing. It's clunky to today's readers and the confrontation at the heart of the action doesn't have much impact.
