Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, the staff of the Daily Planet, even the Justice League-their lives all changed when Superman revealed his secret identity to the world! This unique Superman experience explores what the identity of Clark Kent meant to those close to him-and what their relationship to Superman will be in the future. All the rules are about to change-and it all starts here. The dream team of writers Brian Michael Bendis, Matt Fraction, Greg Rucka, and Jody Houser team up for this amazing special, with art anchored by DC legend Kevin Maguire, plus sequences focusing on each corner of the Superman universe by artists Steve Lieber (Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen) and Mike Perkins (Lois Lane). ONE-SHOT

BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy


How will Superman's peers react to the news that he is really mild mannered reporter Clark Kent (and vice versa)? Pretty well, and pretty briefly it turns out. The actual 'heroes react' segment is four Kevin Maguire pages with just as many heads and expressions as you might expect. That leaves a bunch of pages around the reveal that work from 'basically' to 'totally'. There's an extended Jimmy Olsen sequence from Matt Fraction and Steve Leiber(Hey! They do Jimmy's book!), a nice dismantling of "speaking one's truth" by a sour Bruce Wayne most likely by Rucka/Perkins, and a move to return Lex to 100% big bad by big bad Bendis.

Not nearly as essential as it could have been, far better than the tripe that this sort of book often results in.


I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
