About the Author

Peter J. Tomasi is a New York Times best-selling author known for his current work on Superman and previous projects Batman and Robin, Superman/Wonder Woman, Batman - Detective Comics, and Batman Arkham Knight, along with other commercially successful books including Green Lantern Corps, Brightest Day, Emerald Warriors, and Nightwing. Over the course of his career with DC Comics—more than two decades of hit books—Peter served as a group editor ushering in new eras for Batman, Green Lantern, and JSA along with special projects like Kingdom Come. Peter also is the author of the creator owned books Light Brigade (Dark Horse) with artist Peter Snejbjerg, The Mighty (Dark Horse) with Keith Champagne and artists Peter Snejbjerg and Chris Samnee, and the critically acclaimed horror/drama series House of Penance (Dark Horse) with artist Ian Bertram.

Patrick Gleason loves to create fantastic characters and worlds. His focus on character development and powerful storytelling can be seen in DC’s Batman and Robin, Green Lantern Corps, Aquaman, JLA, Hawkman, and JSA. His ground-laying work alongside Geoff Johns and Dave Gibbons on the miniseries Green Lantern Corps: Recharge made way for the acclaimed ongoing series. The Sinestro Corps War followed, and then the explosive Blackest Night with Peter J. Tomasi. As part of the DC Comics New 52, Patrick lent his artistic vision to the Dynamic Duo of Batman and Robin. Patrick is currently writing and penciling Robin: Son of Batman.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get past a very weak first story, but it gets better!
By Old Duffler on May 18, 2018
OK, in this volume was down right bad. An ode to American servicemen and women, its heart was in the right place, but was largely framed as a series of long-winded quotes. The authors told rather than showed, and the whole thing felt, wooden and unrealistic. I like the idea of Superman as a demonstrator of virtue. It's part of what has been his brand from the start. But this was poorly, clumsily done. It took me a while to get over my annoyance.

The rest of the book was.. much, much better...

In story two, what seemed like a semi-interesting boss fight, became an altogether more complicated thing... allowing us to explore a classic comic book character as he engages with his own demons, while giving us the opportunity to better understand some of the biggest baddies in the DC universe.

The third story also included a name of the DC universe though wasn't quite as strong as the second story and the shifting narration was off-putting.
but was in a lot of ways Lois' story as much as Superman's...

Which is one of the things that makes the new Superman series so wonderful.... Superman is a family guy and the series has embraced that. Career, ambition, taking care of home... these things weigh on both Lois and Superman.

Superman's been having a great run in Rebirth. Despite the weakness of the first story, this volume continues that.
