Is this the Superman novel? Isn't it kind of like "Ultimate Superman," only as a novel? Or am I thinking of something else?

It's a Graphic Novel. It's about a comic book writer who is given the job of writing Superman...but the catch is...he doesn't want to Write Superman...hell he doesn't even like the character. It also deals with the writer searching for his missing father that all revolves around a family secret. It's a very touching story. The book really examines the superman character. It disects him. It shows all the contradicting things writers have done to the character and really goes after the big red S with fists flying. However, at the same time...it really honors the character, and shows everything that is right with him.

It's a really good story...I'd highly recomend it to anyone....weather you like the character or not. Hell...I think even Goddard would like it (that is if he hasn't read it).

that makes me happy.


i think, too, that this is a *perfect* example of the marriage of an artist and writer working seamlessly. the story sufferes without either half, and the two just blended together so well that in the hands of anyone else, writer or artist, the story would fall apart.
