A great new starting point for the Man of Steel is here in SUPERMAN VOL. 1: SON OF SUPERMAN, part of the most critically acclaimed, best-selling, all-new line of volume one graphic novels, DC Universe Rebirth!

When the Man of Steel died defending his adopted home, it seemed that the spirit of truth and justice he represented was extinguished forever. But watching from the sidelines was another Superman--older, wiser, more experienced--with his wife, Lois Lane, and their son, Jonathan Kent.

Now this refugee from a vanished universe is stepping out of the shadows, ready to assume the mantle of his fallen counterpart and take to the skies once more as Earth's greatest hero.

But he is not the only survivor of Krypton to make the journey to this reality.

The machine mind known as the Eradicator is on the trail of the House of El, and its hardwired directive to protect the Kryptonian genome permits no consideration for any other forms of life--not even those that share Kal-El's blood.

Can the son of Superman harness his newly emerging powers in time to resist the annihilation of his humanity? Or will he be reborn into a new Krypton forged from the ashes of his mother's world?

Exploding out of DC's blockbuster Rebirth event, SUPERMAN VOL. 1: SON OF SUPERMAN marks the beginning of a new era for the Man of Tomorrow and a great jumping-on point for new fans--brought to you by acclaimed storytellers Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason, Doug Mahnke, Jorge Jimenez, Mick Gray, Jaime Mendoza, John Kalisz, Will Quintana and Alejandro Sanchez! Collects issues #1-6 and the SUPERMAN: REBIRTH one-shot.

Been reading these whatever we call them for more than fifty years. I guess cause i' m a father this one struck a emotional chord with me. It's still staight-up Superman but his relationship with his son adds depth. In other ways it's very much old school, with great illustration that doesn't cloud the narrative line. Straight forward fun. If this is typical of the latest reboot of DC i'm in!

A new Man of Steel (or to be more precise, the surviving Superman of the pre-reboot era) rises up to fill the place of the deceased Superman of the New 52. While working to protect his wife and their son, Clark finds himself contending with a familiar threat- the Eradicator, who has designs of his own. This first volume of a new era works quite well, as Tomasi shows a good understanding of the main characters and what make them tick.
