I only meant to download this today but I got completely sucked in and ended up devouring all of it in one sitting. I’m not super familiar with Superman lore beyond the basics, but that didn’t hinder my enjoyment of the story.
The characters are interesting and compelling and the stakes are high from the start – and really feel like it. I really enjoyed reading about Zahn and Sera and their friends, as well as their blossoming friendship and potential for more. Of course, it ended far sooner than I would have liked, but it was a great length to whet the appetite for the story while still leaving potential for more.
I’ve really enjoyed Claudia Gray’s work in the past, and this was no exception.
The art was really great, with easily distinguishable characters, tension and drama, great colors, and a throwback comic-book style. It definitely enhanced the reading experience.
I will definitely be picking up the next books in the series as soon as they’re available.
