    My Adventures With Superman #1 is not likely to win over those unwilling to give a Superman manga a try. However, open-minded fans will appreciate how the comic, like the animated series, showcases how universal the themes and characters of Superman truly are. Fans of the show will likewise be satisfied with how the comic continues the series’ storyline.

    This tie-in to the acclaimed MAX series bridges the gap between seasons one and two with success and it’s a brilliant Superman story! The story itself kicks off with Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen planning the perfect outing for Clark since it’s his first Christmas in Metropolis; At first, it comes off as being memorable but unfortunately, The Parasite attacks that it’s only when Superman realizes that this is a different version of Parasite he’s fighting. At the same time, there’s something much more sinister going on. I enjoy the work that showrunner Josie Campbell put into her script as it’s a story that can be followed with ease. Still, it’s the characterization and dynamics between Superman, Lois and Jimmy that made the series such a hit among fans and they will absolutely love how those precise elements from the show transition well into this issue; It also helps that the artwork adapts the designs from the show that looks polished and definitely feels like a classic Superman story. Does this series capture the feels of the show? Yes, and it’s a fun romp that will make anyone proud to be a Superman fan.

    My Adventures With Superman #1 is a book I’d recommend to fans of the animated series, longtime Superman fans, and newcomers to the world of comics. It taps into the spirit of its source material, balancing action, humor and romance with almost superhuman ease.

    The Aspiring Kryptonian

    One of the biggest questions when season one came out was if there was Dr. Ivo, then where was his most famous creation? His debut is right here in My Adventures With Superman #1, at the same time, how will this tie into the new season? There are plenty of reasons to get on this limited series.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary

    The comic, written by show runner Josie Campbell with art by Pablo Collar, has the same vibe. From the manga-like art to a little whimsy, this book strikes an overall nice tone. But the story here of an apparent villain who might not be exactly that works well.

    If you like Season One of My Adventures With Superman, you will really enjoy this issue. The tone matches the show well, from the story to the humor bits. Josie Campbell is setting up a story between Waller and Checkmate.

    In terms of capturing the look and feel of the show, My Adventures with Superman #1 is a success. My biggest complaint with the series is its lack of interesting and credible super-villains.
