Earth One was my first Superman book. Its okay, and volume 2 is great
I highly recommend it, even though the first volume is just okay.
A robotic journey toward the American Dream: MADE in USA.
I'd recommned you go instead to Amazon and read the reviews there. The reviewers there are just readers who read the book looking to be entertained with no agenda. You'd get there feedbacks from a more honest representation of the comic book reading community. Comics message boards are usually populated by long time readers who read tons of comics yet somehow entertainment or appreciation escapes them.
...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?

Sure try it you might like it, I do. It say's something different.
Supreme Power/Squadron Supreme was a or rather two Marvel series also written by JMS. It was the Ultimate Marvel version of Squadron Supreme, which is their take on the Justice League.
In Supreme Power, an rocket carrying a baby is found by farmers, but a few hours later the U.S.Military knocks on their door. The superpowered baby gets raised to be America's ultimate weapon, codenamed Hyperion, the powersource of the rocket, a crystal reacting to thoughts merges with a sniper nicknamed the Doctor and years later the scientists realise that the rocket released a nano-virus capable of augmenting the human DNA, which becomes evident as more and more mutants and meta-beings appear globally. Of course things get pearshaped very fast as Hyperion realises how much he has been manipulated, while at the same time Redstone, the worlds first superpowered serialkiller makes his debut. Unfortunatly Marvel did cancel the series in mid-story. There was a follow-up series by Chaykin, which was really bad and featured Ultimate Nick Fury, but JMS stuff was really great.
