First and foremost, that cover is a thing of goddamn beauty. Steve Beach seems to be channeling George Reeves with his take on Superman. The colors are gorgeous too.

This is my first issue of Action Comics in awhile. As such, I’d forgotten just how good a handle Philip Kennedy Johnson has on the Superman character. He proves that very early on here.

Riccardo Federici and Lee Loughridge’s “sketchy” art is a really nice change of pace. It’s not necessarily what you expect to see when you pick up a Superman comic. But in this case, that’s a good thing.
