How does an author from the British midlands do this? - Calib@n
One of the greatest Superman stories ever told. Alan Moore tapped into all that made the silver age Superman great. The story is dramatic, but there is humour and charm as well. Some of the more ridiculous elements of the silver age stories are included and 'joke' villains take on a more sinister edge.

This is the silver age Superman's final curtain as the era of the gritty, realistic superhero begins. And it's all done with a great deal of charm. The art is perfect and you get the feeling that all the creators had a great deal of affection for this version of the ultimate comic icon.

If you have come to comics since this was published and you want an idea of what the silver age was all about then seek out these issues or the reprints. It's a fantastic story-arc which can't fail to entertain. Recommended ++++
