This is the third volume and final volume of a fun series.  I’m not usually a fan of Superman but this “New Superman” has really been a delight to read.  This particular volume collects issues 13 through 19.  I was actually looking forward to this volume to come out; something very rare for me with comics.  I really am a fan of the writer Gene Yang and he does not disappoint in this book.

This was a fun read.  This was a little different than the typical Superman comic. This New Superman is Chinese (as one can gleam from the subtitle).  I loved the story as it was a breath of fresh air from the generic Superman story and also that it was a different cultural perspective.  I am glad DC printed this and had a good writer name Gene Yang tell this story.  Thus far this is my favorite of DC’s latest company-wide relaunched called Rebirth.
