I could immediately tell I was in for a different, much darker, much more grounded version of Superman and it ended up being one of my favorites. Unsurprising, since Alan Moore wrote this one. I still have a hard time enjoying the 80's art style, but aside from that, this is a pretty cool story. I liked the framing of the narrative and, if anything, this was too short! Definitely wanted more, but that's almost always a compliment for me. ( )

I have this in comic format, but picked it up in hardcover as well. Alan Moore does a fabulous job with the final story of the Silver Age Superman; a far more fitting 'end of an era' story than the Silver Age might have deserved. The crossover with Swamp Thing was interesting, and might make you wonder who the greater hero might be. The third story is more average, but was adapted into the animated series, and shows a side of Superman rarely seen in the final panels. ( )

Picked this up in hardback from eBay because I found it relatively cheaply and it's a gorgeous edition of a super story. I actually think I have the separate issues in a pile somewhere but, either way, it was worth revisiting this classic storytelling and iconic artwork. Alan Moore is having maximum fun here and the inclusion of the Swamp Thing and Mongul stories show a little more of his range and willingness to get a little darker. Really pleased to add this to my collection and I'll take this last version of Superman over John Byrne's Man of Steel every time. ( )

Well, this book made me even more of an [a:Alan Moore|3961|Alan Moore|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1304944713p2/3961.jpg] fangirl.

The title story was simply fantastic. I'm generally not a huge fan of Supes, but [a:Alan Moore|3961|Alan Moore|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1304944713p2/3961.jpg] captured what it was to be Superman as a person, rather than simply a hero. All of the old villains returned, and one by one, the loose threads were tied up. The introduction nicely covered the point of the story... to end the golden age of Superman, essentially. This story did just that, and not wanting to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't yet read it, it did it splendidly.

In some ways, it seemed like Superman's equivalent to The Dark Knight Rises film...

The second story was another Superman-near-death tale. In this one, Superman was saved by the Swamp Thing. The writing of this story was beautiful, and the artwork (showing both Krypton and Earth) was predictably great. It was interesting to see how Superman dealt with the idea of dying, and it was certainly a fascinating introduction to Swamp Thing which I've not yet read.

The final story (Superman's birthday... and Mogul bringing a rather sinister gift) brought Wonder Woman, Batman, and Robin into the mix. The question of whether contentment is something one wishes to live with, was an interesting philosophical one. What is your true heart's desire? Would you be happy if you got it?

In this story Krypton wasn't destroyed... Bruce Wayne's parents weren't killed. Seeing how Bruce and Supes dealt with these situations was enlightening as to their characters, and I loved the way that Moore narrated the fights.

So, all in all? A must read for comic books fans. [a:Alan Moore|3961|Alan Moore|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1304944713p2/3961.jpg] always cuts to the quick when it comes to important character development. I hope that the new Man of Steel film deals with these questions as well as these comics did. ( )

A nice little volume of three Superman stories written by Alan Moore. The first imagines Superman's end; it's got a nice idea, but it crams in a bit too much Supermania to really work as a story.



The second story brings Swamp Thing and Superman together. Add in Rick Veitch, and you've got a very solid horror tale, with crisp art and gripping writing.



The last story is a what-if, but a clever one. Superman dreams of his life on Krypton if it had never been destroyed.



This is probably more Superman than I'd ever read otherwise! ( )
