Default Re: Superman: Earth One

Read the first act pretty much. Had other stuff I wanted to read (Supergirl Annual, Zatanna); so I'll finish it over the weekend. I like how he's doing what any real person would do with the powers. Proving to be a scientific genius, superb athlete etc. & exploiting it to help his loved ones.

I also like how it's still the Kent's influence that "creates" Superman. Even though it's being told differently that still stands. I like the way JMS writes Perry White in this too. Seems to me not limited to continuity the guy has a decent Superman yarn to spin. Let's see how the rest is. Though I'd still like to see him off the main Superman book. Interesting Ultimate Superman concept, actually has me curious about Johns' Batman one.

I enjoy comic book adaptations but I'm a comic book fan first and foremost. Not a comic book movie fan.

Pull list: Saga, Thief of Thieves, TMNT, Action Comics, Sensation Comics, Batgirl, Grayson, Gotham Academy, Batman '66, Aquaman, The Flash, Green Lantern, GL: Lost Army, E2: Society, Section 8, Green Arrow, Starfire, Black Canary, Dr. Fate, Martian Manhunter, Omega Men, Cyborg, JL, JLA, JLU, JL 3K1, Bat-Mite, Bizarro, X-O Manowar, Rai, Ivar Timewalker, Ninjak, Daredevil, All-New X-Men
