Graphic Novel/Comic Book Review: Adventures of Superman Volume One

18373330

Adventures of Superman (Volume 2, #1) by Jeff Parker, Jeff Lemire, Justin Jordan and others – Paperback, 168 pages – Published April 22nd 2014 by DC Comics

 

This is a collection of standalone comics featuring the Man of Steel. Lex Luthor stars in several, as well as Bizarro, Lois Lane and many other infamous characters.

One comic includes Metropolis in a bottle, while another requires Superman’s help with a child that has been moved across the timeline. In one, Lex even reveals plans to run for US president.

There’s a great undercurrent of humour in many of these, and several comics give an insight to the day-to-day lives of different characters. The final episode in this volume is possibly my favourite – featuring fans of Superman who require his assistance. I thought this story was so clever, and pretty emotional, too.

This is very nearly in my favourite books list. Each story is so interesting and unique. 4.5 stars.
