I’m on all sorts of records having said that I’ve not even the fleeting interest in reading Superman. He’s a very boring character, I thought. Too pedestrian, despite his power. Too reserved. Too nice. But then I started reading Supergirl because she wears a miniskirt and, well, she was my gateway kryptonian and now I’ve got Superman #700 right in front of me and I’m eagerly anticipating the new Superboy book.
I jumped onto Superman for a number of reasons. Supergirl got me interested in the mythology, the number is nice and round and, well, JMS is taking over. Very exciting. JMS wrote one of the only Spider-Man stories I’ve enjoyed unconditionally and got very angry when they made him write One More Day – he also wrote an amazing Thor story until Marvel basically forced him out of a job with the appropriately titled Siege storyline. So now he’s on Superman.
