Don't waste your money on this, just read Doomed. It collects all of this plus the extra stuff needed for volume 6 make sense. In fact, the only thing in this one I hadn't already read, was issue #30 with Harrow & Ghost Soldier.
Not worth it, in my humble opinion.


What happens in that issue that you need to know about?
Harrow can control ghosts, Ghost Soldier works for her, and she is convinced Superman needs to die. She thinks he's simultaneously too powerful and too soft. And then he goes and

No,clue what just happened. Too many gaps, apparently they just published it without having it include crucial story ideas.

I liked the ends, as in the moral and growth of Supes from the event, but the getting there seemed silly and stupid.

More bearded Clark! Less blue monkey monster boy. We already have BAMFs thanks. Also, stop trying to make Krypto into Ghost from GoT.

More Luthor as a goodie anti hero. I love him and Batman in their shared bits. Comedy gold that the Joker and Supes coul

Skip this collection and read Superman: Doomed instead. You're only getting about 25% of the story reading just this one collection and you're going to be really confused. I hate when DC does this.

"Doomed" is a half-way decent storyline, but this volume is just a collection of the chapter ones for that event. I mean, you can sort of piece together what happens in between the issues collected here, but it is in no way a substitute for the entire thing. My advice would be to skip over this volume altogether and go directly for the "Doomed" TP to get the full experience.

2/5 (because as a TP collection, it makes no sense)

Throughout the decades, Superman's invulnerability has made it virtually impossible for many writers to come up with worthwhile villains for him to fight. As a result, the majority of Superman books dealt with emotional issues and issues of conscious. They then created the ultimate Superman villain in Doomsday, who was a mindless beast bent solely on destruction. DC's New 52 version of this ultimate villain is to turn him into an emotional issue and issue of conscious for Superman. And that's ...more

Okay version of the Doomsday storyline. Not everything is here making it a little tough to follow at times.

A different, but enjoyable, take on the Superman/Doomsday story arc.

It's easy to bag on Superman. The almost knee-jerk reaction many fans of super hero comics have is to say he's boring and too powerful. In some versions, yes, that's fair, but even a boring character can be fun. King of the Hill's protagonist Hank Hill is so boring that it comes back around as interesting. The trouble with most Superman writers is that they lack the courage to follow through on the big S's personality traits and their potential results.

Let's say you view Superman as a goody-good

Superman has faced Doomsday before, but never like this. This time he must battle Doomsday for control of his very body, and the integrity of everything for which Superman stands. Infected with spores created by Doomsday's destruction, Superman finds himself changing into an even more deadly version of his ultimate foe.

"Superman: Doomed" was a sprawling event that took place across multiple Superman titles. This volume collects only those chapters which occurred in Action Comics, specifically is

I really dislike 90% of the new 52 and especially the fact that they monkey'd with Superman's costume.

But, Pak writes Superman perfectly and gets what works about the man of steel, his supporting cast, his world and the kind of stories you need to make Superman work and he makes all the pieces fit.

He gets that you need to create a menace big enough to challenge Superman, while giving us some emotional hook to connect us to Clark and the people around him.
These stories work because no matter what

via NYPL - "Hey, let's put half a crossover story in a collection by itself. It'll be good to present a story with escalating stakes, paper-thin characters and absolutely no emotional resonance without half of it's plot points, including the big resolution." - Somebody in DC Collected Editions, I can only assume.

I must admit I'm biased on any Superman story that includes the New 52 version of Doomsday. At first I enjoyed the story at first with the previous version of Superman/Wonder Woman. Unfortunately the whole Superdoom story has made me sick.

The fight against Doomsday is a horrific ordeal and its one that basically spread to endanger the world. So much fury and death. I hate these stories.

As part of a crossover, this volume alone is very difficult to follow since the other issues aren't here. Some great moments but ultimately Inc incomplete.

The actual comics are great. This deserves a much lower score for DC's classic "We'll only collect half of a crossover event".
