My superman was the most crisis superman I grew up reading his stories. Saw his origin retold in "the man of steel" mini series by byrne. Saw him grow into the premiere superhero of earth. Saw him meet lex, the untouchable rich business man who vowed to destroy superman. Saw him meet lois and eventually married her. Saw him go into exile, travel the stars, become a gladiator on warworld. Saw him fight doomsday and die, but eventually came back. And many more stories.
Then flashpoint happened...
Then all that went away. It never happened. And the "new 52" started and now there was a new younger superman for a new generation. It wasnt my superman and I stopped reading superman for the most part.
Then peter tomasi and Patrick Gleason came around and decided "ok screw this. The post crisis superman survived!!!" And he has just been hiding behind the scenes this whole time!!! With his wife lois!!! And his young son, Jonathan Kent.
This omnibus collects these stories about the superman family. And it's great! The kid who read superman growing up, has now grown up and now reading a mature superdad who has also grown up. It's an amazing read. And I highly reccomend it for anyone who was a fan of post crisis/pre 52 superman. You will love it. And jon/superboy is a character that you will adore. Seriously.
The only flaw this book has, if you can call it a flaw, is that this series went along side another superman series by dan jurgens. Action comics. And to get the complete story, you need to read it. Like this omnibus has a storyline called "superman beyond. It's a crossover with action comics. If you havent read the previous stories in action comics, you will be a bit lost. My hope is we get an "superman by Dan jurgens" omnibus. It will go perfectly with this one.
But all in all? This is a must buy. One of the best superman arcs out there. And a great introduction to the great character of jon Kent.
Then bendis took over the book and wrecked everything. But that another story for another time.
Es un gran omnibus donde nos muestran el lado más vulnerable de Superman, su familia. También es un gran desarrollo para el personaje de mostrarlo como un padre. Es de las mejores historias del hombre de acero en los últimos 10 años. Tal vez lo único que se siente lento en el omnibus son las historias sobre los datos históricos de Norteamérica. Totalmente recomendado para fans (se recomienda también leer SuperSons porque también es divertido).
In my 40+ years of reading comics, I've read a lot of Superman stories. From the character's evolution in the late 30s and 40s to enough imaginary stories in the 50s to shake a chunk of red kryptonite at. Through reboots good (post-Crisis) and bad (New 52), the Man of Steel has been through it all. Even a resurrection mullet. This book collects Superman's greatest stories. Great action, character development, and best of all heart! It was a celebration of hope and tradition in a fresh and engaging way. I know many readers who gave up on Superman, but were brought back for this run. (If you are a fan of the "Superman and Lois" show, this is the Superman for you too!) Great storytelling at its best. All good things must come to an end, but I still wish Tomasi and Gleason were Superman's creative team. I am grateful for this omnibus. It's worth every penny for the sheer enjoyment alone.
