About the Author:
Jim Lee is a comics legend. After an extraordinary run drawing X-Men, he co-founded Image studios, and after creating WildStorm Productions he developed and illustrated smash-hit titles like WildC.A.T.S. and StormWatch. Brian Azzarello is one of the hottest names in comics after his work on the crime noir 100 Bullets and Batman catapulted him to the forefront of the ranks of contemporary comics writers.
From Booklist:
Fresh from an acclaimed stint on DC's flagship, Batman (see Broken City, 2004), artist Jim Lee, a fan favorite, takes on the company's other big gun, Superman, with rather less success. The story begins a year after a million people, including Superman's wife, Lois Lane, mysteriously vanish from the face of the earth. As the Man of Steel tries to solve the puzzle while dealing with his personal loss as well as guilt over failing to prevent the disaster, a parallel story line concerns a priest questioning his faith and serving as Superman's confessor. Unfortunately, this intriguing setup gives way to a denouement featuring a megalomaniac bent on interplanetary conquest, which at least gives Lee the chance to draw the superpowered slugfest his fans demand. The attempt to portray an emotionally vulnerable Superman is admirable, but rather than humanizing the character, Lee's overwrought approach--the series' main selling point, however--makes him appear even more godlike than usual. Meanwhile, Azzarello's forte is dark crime stories populated with flawed characters (he made his bones with the modern noir 100 Bullets); he's just not cut out for larger-than-life. Nevertheless, artist's and writer's fans will clamor for these two volumes collecting their 12-issue Superman run. Gordon Flagg
