Writer Kurt Busiek begins his run on the Superman title with this story (with able assists by Geoff Johns). Have you read Busiek’s extremely underrated work on the Superman series (be it this arc or any of those that followed), or is this your first time delving into his adventures of Superman?
What’d you think of this story, and if you’ve read any of the other One Year Later stories, where would you place it within that hierarchy?
Between Superman and Action Comics, artists Terry and Rachel Dodson crafted some swell covers for this story. Do have a favorite?
Anything else that comes to mind as you celebrate the 15th anniversary of this tale.
That’s the adventure for this week, Superfans! Have fun and enjoy!
