Grade 5 Up–Clark Kent has recently returned from a long, intergalactic journey through time and finds that he has been demoted at work in favor of his newspaper-office rival, Jack Ryder. Lois Lane, Kent's wife, has apparently known about it for two weeks but was sworn to secrecy by the Daily Planet's publisher. Upset, Clark must become Superman to fight Gog, a horned man with equal powers, who plunges a spear filled with liquid kryptonite into Superman's chest, weakening him. The Justice League of America shows up to dispel Gog, who teleports away. Wonder Woman and the others take Clark to his boyhood home to recuperate. Once there, Lois's sister confronts him about his wife's poor treatment of him, but he doesn't want to hear it. The book ends with his marriage up in the air, the threat of Gog's return looming, and Clark's endearing love for office life diminished. Everything comes together in this title: a strong plot, well-developed characters, carefully rendered action, and snappy dialogue. There are a lot of Superman releases each year, but one such as this, which extends a good story line with great twists, should be on the buying lists of libraries with heavy comics circulation.–John Leighton, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My issue is that the book arrived in worse condition than what was described. The entire book has a sizeable bend in it and there are marks and dents on both sides of the cover. In addition, there are various folds on the pages within.
It was readable, but the product was described as "like new." So.... Yeah.
The Superman in these comics isn't just confrontational and confident; he comes across more as a bully and an arrogant jerk than the Superman comics fans are used to seeing. The plot involves the villain Gog, based on a character first introduced in Kingdom Come. There's very little characterization and backstory given to Gog (there's a bit more in the follow-up volume, In The Name of Gog). Most of the issues contained in this volume are just a giant battle scene between Superman and Gog that begins interestingly, but eventually devolves into a Michael Bay-esque spectacle. Ideas also get introduced very quickly and are then forgotten about or quickly glossed over; for example, the first issue in this volume depicts an invasion of Metropolis by Darkseid searching for the escaped Doomsday, yet this plot is quickly abandoned and not resolved until the follow-up volume. One issue in here deals with Superman and Lana Lang's relationship, which is intercut with scenes of Superman battling new villains Sodom and Gomorrah (no, I didn't make that up) Like the villain Gog, this is a somewhat clever idea that goes nowhere. Ivan Reis' art is solid, however. Not recommended for Superman fans.

I read this when it was released in single issues and I honestly have no idea why DC even wasted the money re-printing it in trade...Read more
