"A bridal shower, bachelor party, dress fitting, suit fitting, apartment hunting, Batman popping in, guest stars galore, fights with Lois's jerk father, Lex Luther being creepy, and, of course, the actual nuptials, are all featured prominently. DC rotates various famous Superman creators into this issue, with several writers getting mutual credit and the artist changing every few pages. All to make this a group effort for one of the pinnacles of Superman's history." -- Paul Riches, goodreads.com

Some people blame the TV series, Lois and Clark, for the marriage that soon came to be. This, of course, is not entirely true. Though the series brought the two character closer to one another, they have always been in love ever since their early days together. The series simply made the transition easier for a classic iconic figure like Superman. It was more publicity for the comic rather than anything else and it did help bringing them together easier and more acceptable to the readers, young and old. Spider-Man was married before Superman ever did, but readers will always remember him as the single guy who can't find a date. They would not let that concept go. This made the creators rethink about his marital status and put an end to it earlier this year. People could not imagine him as a married guy. Superman had a series that made Lois's and Clark's coming together smoother. You ask anyone out there, they would know that Superman is married. He has always been married to Lois they would say.
This TPB was brought together by the comic industry's top talents. Great writers, including David Michelinie who helped Spidey tie the knot long time ago, were on the helm with some great artwork to boot. Superman's marriage brings on the coming together of two popular characters of modern American culture. Has the marriage worked through out all these years? One can only say that it has grown stronger each day. Readers love the concept and the antics that the two happy couple go through in their marriage. Their relationship is that of love, respect and being there for your partner at times of need. Apart from the super-powers, those things are exactly the right ingredients for any happy marriage out there to truly work.
But there, in my opinion, the strength of the story ended. The succeeding episodes took a downturn as the writers portrayed Lois as the female version of Rambo. Sure, DC is just trying to portray her as a stubborn, independent and highly resilient dame that needed no rescuing from her knight in shining armor--which is good--but having a new wife single-handedly charge the bad guys to rescue her poor husband and come out alive was way too overblown. After all, she is a reporter, not a Navy SEAL. And who cares if she's an army brat. I feel the writers could have done better, without the gun-toting, knife-wielding, bullet-proof Lois Lane. Or, for the sake of preserving the beauty of the wedding story, this should have been fleshed out and told elsewhere. Better a short lovely story than a "long" spoiled one.
The different artists working on alternate pages didn't work either as I find it too distracting.
I would have given this book five stars if not for that cheesy honeymoon story, but still I recommend this to any true-blue Superman fan. Don't mind the post-wedding episodes though. Just be happy for Lois and Clark.
