Title: Superman #226.
Post by: Defender on February 15, 2006, 04:38:32 PM
Anybody get a chance to read this? The Identity Crisis brouhaha has had one positive effect; the next three issues of Superman and Action will be the biography of the Earth-2 Superman, Kal-L. Written by Joe Kelly, with art by Ed Benes and Mariah Benes, Jerry Ordway, Howard Chaykin, and Renato Guedes. There's a neat section called 'Lois' Photo Album' done by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale too. I have to say it was a breath of fresh air, and a fun little slice of nostalgia. Shame it's not the regular series, but at least we can see the Golden Age Superman in his prime one last time. I liked the 'old' effect of the cover too, and Ed McGuiness' cover was nice, a blending of his style with Joe Shuster's. If you haven't had a chance, I'd suggest picking it up. Fun stuff for only $2.50, $3.50 if you're a Canuck like me. :)

I can't wait to read it, I want this trilogy now!
And, of course, I want now the following stories by Busiek and Johns, too!
It's a good moment for the Man of Steel.
