Return to Smallville and experience the journey of Earth's favorite adopted son as he grows from boy to Superman like you've never seen before!
Interesting, entertaining Superman GN for casual fans.
Superman: Earth One was the first in a line of graphic novels geared toward teens and young adults, from whom the continuity of the regular comics might appear daunting (and expensive) to collect. This GN gives us his familiar origin, a battle with alien invaders, and the beginning of his career at the Daily Planet. Nothing terribly original to longtime fans, but enjoyable nevertheless. If you liked the early days of Ultimate Marvel, this one's for you.
An excellent reboot of Superman's origin story. Perfect for any Superman fan, comic book fan, or anyone looking for a fresh take on The Man of Steel! This is a more modern Clark Kent with a different set of values and motives. A Must Read!
s..... Says it all
I was going to read a couple of pages to get a feel of the book....
And I ended up reading the whole book.
What else can I say. Your new fan. daniel
