Even the cover is a brilliant first.

When have we ever seen Superman sitting on a cloud before?

Plus the artwork itself is beautiful.  I can't wait.

People wondering where the idea for this cover came from might want to read what Grant Morrison had to say about his work on the Superman 2000 proposal:
Quote
I wrote most of it after meeting the Man of Steel at 2am opposite the Sheraton in San Diego -- a true shamanic moment.   The thing that really hit me, wasn't so much what Superman was saying as how he was sitting.  He was perched with one knee drawn up, chin resting on his arms.  He looked totally relaxed...and I suddenly realized this was how Superman would sit.  He wouldn't puff out his chest or posture heroically, he would be totally chilled.  If nothing can hurt you, you can afford to be cool.  A man like Superman would never have to tense against the cold; never have to flinch in the face of a blow.  He would be completely laid back, un-tense.  With this image of Superman relaxing on a cloud looking out for us all in my head, I rushed back to my hotel room and filled dozens of pages of my notebook with notes and drawings.
