This is a great rendition of another Superman life story. It was also good to cover Lex Luthor's origins. The parts of the story were divided up will , and it was a very good story line. Well done!

Great rendition of another Superman story that focuses on both Clark Kent and Superman. With Gary Frank's beautiful art and Geoff John's great writing, Superman Secret Origin is definitely worth reading

Don't bother... It's not even cannon anymore and it's just a mish mash of every other version ever made. Not sure why they felt the need to ditch Birthright for this. The artwork's cool so I guess it has that going for it but it tries to be both the pre-and post Crisis version together and it's an uncomfortable fit. I don't think fans of either version cared much for it. No wonder it only lasted two years.
