C'mon. Really? That's my commentary on the end of this TPB. I sort of get it, because it's a two part TPB story, but still, the idea that this guy from Atlantis proposes is just stupid.

Most of the rest of the story is interesting until they jump forward to 2014 (which was a little weird). Then it just sorta careens off the tracks.

The art is not too bad, though when she's in it Lois and her hairstyle seems to change every few panels, or even every panel, and CK/Superman can in one panel look quite Asian and in the next quite Midwestern Cowboy. I guess the best description is that the art is uneven in its presentation. Still, it's an okay set of issues. ( )

Don't bother with this. While initially intriguing it gets worse as the book progresses. Cartoonish villains. Long, outlandish monologues instead of actual character development. Disjointed stories thrown together, with new characters and villains introduced only to literally disappear in a few pages. Really scattered storytelling, as if they were playing Calvinball in the writers' room.

And yes, I'm judging this by a comic book standard. It's a disappointment as I was really looking forward to reading more of Busiek's work.

On the other hand, the artwork is great. There's no complaint there. ( )

It gets a bit disjointed in the middle, when the plot is suddenly interrupted. Otherwise, a good Superman book with great characterisation and narration, along with some interesting ideas and a gripping message of apocalyptic doom. Special mention to the art team of Pacheco, Merino, Stewart and Comicraft for creating one of the best looking superhero books on the stands. Superman hasn't been this good in a long time. ( )

A curious conglomeration of Superman confrontations and a near-immortal who has a vision in 1659 of the end of the world in Superman's time. Of course he journeys to Superman's time to see if he can talk Superman into doing what it takes to prevent this. The vision of the world's end is moving and surprising in the alliances that it fosters. But so far this seems to be a disjointed collection of conflicts, and the enemy whose battles with Superman brings all this about is a not particularly interesting enigma. I hope the concluding volume(s) clear up some of the fog. ( )
