Superman: Year One #1 was my most anticipated new release this week and it lived up to my expectations.
I thought Miller did a good job all around. He set up the Kents well, Clark’s friends were sympathetic and the bullies absolutely got their overdue comeuppance.
My favorite parts were two-fold, with the first being Clark and Lana’s relationship. From friends to more, their love for one another was sweet and sincere.
My second favorite part was Miller’s characterization of small town life. His descriptions of each and every little thing really pulled me into the environs and made the story that much interesting.
The art was great. JRJR isn’t a favorite of mine, but I’ve enjoyed his work for years, especially that of the DC flavor.
There wasn’t any artwork in this issue that took my breath away, but it ably accompanied Miller’s capable writing to a successful degree.
So, Super-fans…what did you think of this book?
SN: There don’t appear to be tags for Frank Miller or John Romita Jr available at this time. Given Miller’s impact with DC, that’s quite surprising.
