    Based on these first two installments, it seems like this Earth-Prime crossover will vary dramatically by issue—likely based on the quality of the parent show for each issue. While this issue does feature the Kent boys, Jonathan and Jordan, they’re almost there only as reminders of the fact that it takes place in this continuity. Otherwise, with veteran Superman artist Tom Grummett on board, this feels more like an evergreen Superman comic with three stories that celebrate the best of the character—most of the time.

    On the whole, the Superman and Lois section of Earth-Prime is an improvement on the first issue. Its only major flaw is that it barely seems to be connected to the crossover event it is meant to be a part of and is a decidedly generic Superman book with none of the unique flavor of the Arrowverse setting. That being said, it is a good Superman book and even those comic fans who don’t watch the show can enjoy the first two comics in this issue.

    Overall, this Earth-Prime issue doesn’t seem to know if it wants to play into the expectations of Superman comics, or pay tribute to the show it’s serving as an adaptation of but still, there’s more than enough here to justify reading it.
