So many dismiss Superman as a character impossible to relate to. Common arguments are 'he's too powerful,' 'he's not as cool as Batman,' or 'he's boring.' As much as these statements irk me, everyone is, of course, entitled to their own opinion. I believe that many of the people who feel this way have never read a Superman story which counters these arguments. This book does. This is one of the greatest, most humanizing, engaging Superman stories ever, and it may also be one of the most underrated.

Firstly, the art caught my eye. Kubert's work is pleasing, not outstanding, but certainly enjoyable. He is able to capture the power of Superman and Zod, and renders character expression reasonably well. Perhaps the most glaring detraction of Kubert's work is the noticeable differences of quality between panels. Certain places and characters are drawn with exceptional detail and depth at certain points, while later on they seem cartoonish by comparison. What also hurts Kubert's art is the second act of this collection, which is penciled by Gary Frank. Frank's work is astounding. His Superman resembles Christopher Reeve, and looks every bit as heroic as he should. The skill he demonstrates at drawing facial expression may be unmatched. The reader is never in doubt about how a character is feeling. Frank is able to capture triumph and tragedy that can only be expressed through picture. The only con regarding Frank's work is that there is not nearly enough.

The writing is superb. Donner and Johns together are able to craft a powerful story that ultimately levels two huge blows to Superman's life. The dialogue is fantastic and the exposition insightful. While this may not be Johns' most groundbreaking work, it is some of his most enjoyable. This book offers an established Superman, one at the peak of his abilities, who still faces convincingly tough opponents. Lois is given numerous points of good dialogue, and she never appears as a damsel in distress. Donner and Johns utilize her character as a protagonist, not a plot point.

If someone ever complains that 'there are no good Superman stories,' have them read this. The book never gets boring, it was never a struggle to get through, and the ending is tragic gold. Is it worth the price? Unquestionably.

I greatly enjoyed both stories although I preferred the first one overall. Both in many ways could have been the second Superman movie (after the first with Reeves). The second one, with Superman fighting Brainiac, especially felt like a continuation with some great banter between Lois and Clark. And this Clark Kent is ok with taking subtle revenge on bullies in the office which I like. The Brainiac angle was well handled, tying together Kandor city and Brainiac in a clever way. The one thing that confused me early was when Superman decided to try to find Brainiac, the transition between that and the previous page could have used a touch more connective tissue. It took me a few reads to realize what was going on.

The first story was very good, with some twists that I didn't see coming. Since this involves Zod, Ursa, and a more interesting Non than Superman II, it also could have been a direct continuation of Superman the movie. I won't spoil much, but I did see one major hole in the story which I spoil now (it's really only a minor spoiler relatively):

SPOILER ALERT

Lex Luthor is right, at least partially. He helped save the day. Plus, near as I can tell he was out of prison lawfully (after all, Superman found him quite easily when he needed his help, so it stands that he knew where Luthor was). So why precisely was he jailed again at the end? Maybe this comic was a continuation of a previous one that sheds light on this, but as a stand alone this stuck out big time.

END SPOILER ALERT

Otherwise I greatly enjoyed this collection.

The Donner-Johns team crafted a marvelous story that tells a better tale than Superman 2 (which has remained my favorite Superman movie). It would make an excellent movie, but it is also a wonderful comic. The artwork by Adam Kubert is great. He changes his pencilwork around to shift the tone and mood; the splash pages are bold and often thrilling.

There are tiny cameos by the Justice League and major cameos by Luthor, Bizarro, Metallo, Lar Gand and Jor-el. Fans of the Superman will adore the story. It's on my all time list of great Superman stories.

The back-half of the trade is a very good Braniac story. I read it the first time back in 2008 and I enjoyed it then. It has aged well, and I appreciated it just as much, if not more, the second time around. An amazing trick is that both stories work very well as stand alone books - you don't have to have an extensive knowledge of Superman or the DC universe or the various continuities.
Love Me
This book contains two stories featuring Superman written by Geoff Johns and Richard Donner. The first story involves General Zod, and the second an encounter with Brainiac. Personally, I preferred the Brainiac story, but both are very well written. I appreciate what was done here, and I think these stories really get who Superman is. My only complaint is that both stories have very divergent art styles, and I would not say the styles mesh well together. Thankfully, the art work is consistent for each story, and the artists are good. I only wish both stories in the book had a similar style. Otherwise, this book is an excellent selection.

Doesn't matter if you are an "old" Superman fan or just discovering him, this is a great read. Two entirely different stories but they depict OUR big blue guy at his best.
Both stories show the greatness of his strength and loyalty and even more so, the depth of his love for Earth

And a very strong. Human heart which can be broken.
( sorry my kindle went spastic as I wrote this)

Highly recommend
