I like big books.

Superman Reign Of Doomsday Hc (Superman Limited Gns (DC Comics R))

Superman: Reign of Doomsday - Paul Cornell, Various This was not half bad and is a fitting close to the pre-New 52 era for Superman. Fresh off the proverbial interplanetary boat from the now defunct New Krypton, Clark manages to find his stride again and his place among the people of Earth. There's nothing particularly clever about this installment. The greatest compliment I can pay it is that they did it right. I don't know how many people get Superman just plain wrong. Cornell manages to encapsulate the legacy of the character and the impact he's had on friends and foes alike by forcing him to confront his greatest fear: the resurrected Doomsday (there's a twist later, so it's not that simple).

Would I read it again? Probably not, but at least it didn't make me cringe.
