Getting all the books, but I'm back to buying the vanilla book out of habit, not excitement. May as well stick around till Lobdell takes over in September, though. If he doesn't turn the book around, though, I'll be getting all my Superman stories in Action. If the third creative team in a year can't do it, it's three strikes and I'm out.
Wow. That's a gorgeous Superman cover. Shame this title really can't match the quality on Action.

Lois then gets wind of all this and is now hot on the case......well at least that what I think the story will be like.
It fits all of the motifs that have been set in the run so far:
1.The little guy strikes back: Superman represents that in a good way
2. The analog Supermen: we saw Metal-zero as one of them in relation to our earths Superman
3. What Superman could have been if he wasn't him: Metal-zero is Superman who is driven by someone else (Lois dictates what he does) and is a small man inside. The collector was the "bad alien" who came here to study and be little us. He is Superman with no humanity. The list goes on to issue #9 but that hasn't yet FULLY applied to our earth just yet.
4. Using Superman's whole meta textual story to make a story about one man: Mr. Morrison has stated this time and again and Bill Dunn is in fact part of that meta history and to add him as the 1st FORGOTTEN Superman (which he his based on how people no so little about his one shot story) is an extremely smart move on Morrison's part if this is the rout he's going.

"I'm going to paraphrase Nietzsche, when you judge a work, the work judges you."
Just Action Comics and the Superman annual. Since it looks like Super Boy isn't crossing over with TT anymore, I can finally drop it.
DC/Marvel reader. Mostly Superman,Batman,X-Men,Avengers fan...guess I am a fan of most comics.
His costume reminds me of Nuclear Man though.

Superboy looks emo o___O
Reading: A Comics, Superman, Superboy, Batman, B&R, Nightwing, G Lantern, GL:NG, The Flash, J League, T Titans, Earth 2, World's Finest and Smallville S.11!
Watching: Young Justice.
Weird...the Source lists Scott Kolins as the artist on the annual but Newsarama and CBR list "CAFU and others".
So the Earth's first Superman is Bill Dunn or a pastiche version of him. Never tought that Morrison would integrate such an almost unknown character to the DCnU.
Well I'll be picking AC, Superman along with the annual. Bussiness as usual.
Action and Supergirl looking great is par for course.
Superboy, I'm wary of seemingly losing Lobdell completely. I don't mind DeFalco as much as some, but he's not as good as Lobdell at capturing Superboy's voice, that much I agree with. Superman....sigh, I dunno. A rather generic solicit for a title that is just begging for some hype. I certainly don't want to be too hard too quick, nothing wrong with good standalone stories after all. But we'll see.
But I will say I'd like him to be used sparingly because the sheer gravitas of who he is should make him a "special occasion" sorta villain, ya know?
