This was my first Superman comic, and Im glad I got it!
One of the best comics I've ever read. If you haven't read this and you even vaguely like comic books or just like Superman (or Batman) you must buy this. It also has one of the best twist endings that you will NEVER see coming.
I bought this for my boyfriend for an anniversary gift. He literally screamed when he unwrapped it, and didn't waste any time reading it. I've never seen a grown man glow like a little kid on Christmas morning. Definitely a good buy!
