really liked it
bookshelves: graphic-novels, comics
Read in January, 2012

I love love love stories that take an icon and completely throw everything you know out the window. And the best part of this one is that it is so completely plausible. Space is really big, and the earth really small. What are the odds of superman landing in Kansas as opposed to Ukraine? And the author did a great job of keeping superman very much the same good man, only forcing him to champion a different set of values. Like all good books, the "what if" it poses can be applied to real life as well.
