Too campy for me but I recognize it's excellent at what it does. ( )

Excellent story. However, as always, Quitely's artwork is horrible. ( )

The one where they kill Superman (again).

Lex sets Superman to die after exposing him to too much solar radiation. As he dies, he performs some final tasks, including a trip to Bizarro (not great, and all those badly structured double negatives).

There is a final showdown with Lex who escapes from prison after going through the electric chair.

Graphics are good, showing that not everyone is pretty all of the time. Clark Kent is more bumbling than I think I've ever seen (and is a nice tie in to the Christopher Reeve Superman films). Good, but "Greatest Superman ever written"? Yet to be convinced ( )

It would get 4 stars if the Bizarro issue was never written, it's so bad I couldn't even get more than a few pages in before I just skipped ahead. ( )
