Adventures of Superman 16

Adventures of Superman #16

On one level I'm not sure if I can really call Adventures of Superman a good comic. I honestly found the writing to be a bit confusing at moments and its narrative flow a bit less than stable. That said, it's definitely an interesting read and very much tap into probably one of my favorite themes for the character, i.e. Superman as a myth. Opening on the doomsday of a future Earth, the book is primarily a recounting of Superman as he exists throughout the ages, starting in his early days in the late 1930s and following him to the end of time itself. This framework is used both to revisit some of Supe's old visual styles, but also to forward the idea that no matter how long it takes, every problem, failure and setback has a solution worth striving to find. I liked it and I'd recommend picking it up if you're a fan of the Man of Steel.

Favorite Moment: "For him, for us- There's always a way."
