Here’s my review of the 2nd issue of Superman Year One by Frank Miller.
In my review of the first issue (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4…) I stated that I was concerned about where Miller would take the Clark Kent character. I was concerned if he understood Superman’s motivations and whether or not he would get the essence of the character. I also said at the end of my review that I thought it would be a fun ride to see how this iteration of Superman pans out.
So, I recently finally got around to reading issue #2.
Overall, yes, it was a run read. I enjoyed seeing Clark’s journey through Navy boot camp and further enjoyed watching him work his way through SEAL training. There were times where I found that Mr. Miller was understanding the character, particularly when Clark was ordered to shoot people. I felt like, Miller was trying to get across that Clark was not completely at ease with that. So again, overall, it was a good read. I was not, however, fond of the Atlantean subplot. I’m not 100% sure why I did not like it. I just feel like something about it rubbed me the wrong way. Something about it was off to me.
All that being said, I am still not only planning on but also looking forward to reading issue #3 when it comes out.
