  1. The Omnibus collect good collection of superman but it doesn’t not collect All star superman a that an elseworld self contain story

    this the best to start with new 52 superman if you want to start with the more resent classic superman then start with Tomasi rebirth run (there an arc where the two fuse together)

    either way getting this ombi is not bad definite recommend

  2. Not really. This “version” of Superman is dead and gone. It’s extremely confusing.

    All-Star Superman is not included. But that would be a really good start, as it’s a fully self contained story.

  3. This was actually my first comic book. It was confusing. Grant Morrison is not for layman.

    I would go Geoff Johns or Mark Waid Superman books.

  4. The title is something of a misnomer – it’s not Grant Morrison’s Superman work as a whole, it’s their *Action Comics* run specifically iirc.

    It’s a tremendously good run on the character, and I heartily recommend it! Like with *All-Star* Morrison here reaches into the character’s history to create something new and fresh out of Superman Classic. There’s more influence from the roughneck Superman of the early Golden Age here.

  5. All star is not included here as far as i know (it doesn’t credit frank quietley or Jaime grant who were the artist and colorist on all star supes) its the early new 52 stuff, I only read the first issue, so I might not be the best to recommend here but from what i know guess it can work as entry point for supes (since is is an origin story but it also has a lot of meta shit) but I recommend escape from bizarro world or other Geoff Jones stories, their great entry points, also for all seasons or American alien which are also great origin stories but less meta than this, but this one ain’t bad either

  6. It’s a pretty good run but I wouldn’t give one of Grant’s runs to an absolute comics beginner. A better starting out point for Supes would be:

    Geoff Johns’ Secret Origin

    John Byrne’s Man of Steel

    or Jeph Loeb’s Superman For All Seasons
