Superman Year One | Is it Worth it?

Several stories have been announced to launch DC Black Label, but one that caught our attention was Superman Year One by Frank Miller. Frank is no stranger to controversial, dark stories, that draw readers in and challenge the way they see a character. He did a great job with Batman year one which essentially redefined how people see the origins of the Dark Knight. However, the question becomes, does he do justice to the Man of Steel?

Detective Comics #1000 | Is it Worth It?

Typically in these reviews, I talk about the cover art, story art, and the story itself. This landmark issue, however, poses some problems with this format.
