*this may contain a spoiler, but I'm not sure how sensitive people are about that kind of thing. I wouldn't call it a spoiler, tho*
I just read the first issue. It's not terrible, which is all I've come to expect from Frank Miller. It's even brought a few ideas to the Superman story that I've never seen before. There are a few moments of higher-level authorship where Miller skips the inevitable scene of Pa Kent lecturing him for showing off his powers at the football game. It was a small thing, but the story was greatly enhanced by not seeing Miller's take on a scene we've read countless times before.
The dialogue, tho... yeesh. Miller writes country-folk affectations like Stan Lee captured the hip lingo of the sixties.
The art is pretty good. Romita Jr. is at a stage in his career where his faces are all deformed with giant eyes and huge noses. I'm not sure why his style has gone in this direction, but it's not for me.
All in all, I recommend it. Don't let my complaints fool you: it's work of a high quality compared to other books on the stands, even though it might not be for me.
