Son of Superman

“Reprinting a classic Superman tale featuring the art of J.H. Williams III! Fifteen years after the disappearance of Superman, a teenage Jon Kent awakens one day to learn that not only is he the son of the Man of Steel, but he has suddenly inherited his powers. Looking to follow in his father’s footsteps, Jon joins a rebel organization that fights against the now completely corrupt U.S. government and their plan for total economic segregation. But by becoming an enemy of the state, the son of Superman instantly becomes a target of the government-run Justice League. Now in order to live up to the legacy of his father, Jon must defeat corrupted and deviant versions of Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and The Flash.”

I just finished Son of Superman.
I’ve been meaning to read this for a while (as the original GN) as I’m a fan of Howard Chaykin and JH Williams. Seeing as DC have reprinted in their new “100-Page Spectacular” format, I thought I’d finally get it.

I enjoyed this more than I expected, obviously the art was good, and David Tischman seems to have tempered Chaykin’s macho excesses. There was a bit of politics, but not the boring kind; it actually reminded me a bit of The Dark Kinght Strikes Again in that respect (although not as satirical), with government corruption and Lex Luthor running the show.

Yeah, worth reading.
