Superman #1 was better than I expected, but it's very traditional comic book. It really is reminiscent of something from twenty years or more ago, and it's not likely to attract much attention to the character. The prose is leaden, and there's too much of the kind of dialogue discussed earlier. Also, as a reviewer at another site noted, Clark Kent's writing is awful and it resembles neither deadline or feature journalism in its structure and style. Perez is probably not the guy to bring this book into the modern world. His layouts aren't interesting, and if he's going to keep doing the stories they ought to at least get another writer to do the narrative and dialogue. The upsides are about what I expected, and a little more - the new status quo is better, and Clark is certainly a distinct personality in his values and attitudes from Lois and the others. It's easy to see the character Morrison is developing over in Action in this one. And it's nice to see that after five or six years human beings still don't know or entirely like him. All change is for the sake of change, period. People simply have feelings about it.
