Editorial Reviews

Review

 "JMS has created a brilliant breathing world of consequence and DC is delivering this vision in epic scope.. . . Masterful. . . . truly extraordinary”—Ain’t It Cool News
 
“This is a Superman for the 21st century. With SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, Straczynski and Davis inject the folk tale and legend that is Superman’s origin with a modern, vital and forward-looking energy that makes for a refreshing, epic and challenging super-hero adventure. . . . SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE channels the best tales of Superman with a look toward the future, by two of the brightest talents the industry has to offer.”—/Film
 
“Excellent.... From its poignant domestic moments, delivered in mostly warm, fuzzy flashbacks, to its blockbuster battles, Straczynski’s Superman: Earth One renders like a feature film just waiting for adaptation. “—Wired
 
“Artist Shane Davis rightly gives the book a photorealistic look to drive home that this is more science fiction than superhero romp. . . This is a handsome, rock-solid Superman fable that gets to the scifi pith of his legend.”—Io9
 
“Brooding.”—CNN
 
“What do you get when you combine Twilight and a classic superhero? The new Superman.”—The Hollywood Reporter
 
“The new Superman doesn’t sparkle, but he does brood and smolder. Artist Shane Davis has created a moody 20 year-old version of the iconic hero who rocks a hipster look.”—New York Press
 
“Shane Davis really shines in this book. . . . The art comes alive with energy and design”—Ifanboy
 
“Davis provides sleek figures, intense detail, and subtle integration of current hairstyles and fashions (including a nip and tuck to the old supersuit itself) that do the lion’s share of the contemporizing … [and] Straczynski . . . distinguishes the work, humanizing the dynamic between characters and adding a compelling twist of melancholy to young Clark Kent’s search for purpose.”—Booklist
 
“Straczynski, a master of building characters, brings depth and emotion to the Man of Steel and Davis’ artwork is a joy to behold.”—AM New York
