Review by DanieXJ
Ah, this series has gotten to the Zod part of the story. He appears and we get his backstory. I definitely liked how they changed it. Not humongous differences, but interesting ones none the less. Of course, there’s also the games that Zod plays and the super Xenophobia of the governments of the world. And then there is the Lex Luthor story line. That was very, very different, and I found myself liking it more and more as the TPB went on.I also liked how Clark was written. I’m not sure how I feel about Lisa yet though. And I love how Lois got to talk, have a story line, and she actually got to be a reporter in the series as well. Very cool.It was a good TPB for sure and with the ending panels I hope that there’ll be a fourth volume as well.I got this advanced galley through Netgalley on behalf of DC Entertainment

Some of the worst mainstream super-hero comics out there have been Superman titles, but every so often, DC gets it right. This is one such instance, a re-booting of the storyline that shows us a more human, younger and more emotional character, in both his guises. Here, we have yet another appearance by General Zod, but Straczynski has managed a fresh approach to an over-used and too familiar scenario. And Clark has to figure out how to let down his defenses when someone (not Lois) is finally offering him love, even before she knew his secret. And Superman has to figure out how to convince a wary and fearful planet of warring governments to let down their defenses where he is concerned. As bad as many Superman stories have been, the title has had some of DC's best efforts, and the "Superman - Earth One" books rank among them.
