New Earth, New Man of Tomarrow

Superman Earth One Vol.2
Just finished reading this amazing graphic novel written by J. Michael Straczynski and drawn by Shane Davis.
This book takes a very introspective look at the man of steel and changes up the established myth in a similar way as the new film.
This along with Vol.1 take on superman during his earliest outings as the big blue boyscout and shows us a Clark/Superman still unsure of himself and a world that has no ideas if they can or should trust him.
With a few minor tweaks for continuity purposes I don’t see why they don’t just use this as the template for the sequal.
A great read that takes the spirit of the classic character and brings him into humanistic sci-fi world, this version introduces a wicked take on classic villain Parasite, and even shows us a very interesting new version of arch-nemesis Lex Luthor. Or should I say Lex-squared.
Read it and you will get it.
9/10
