One of the most surprising comics of 2016, was the Max Landis helmed Superman: American Alien. It came out of nowhere to critical acclaim. It is a series of superman stories with a common theme throughout that explores a different view on superman, as a child, as a Bruce Wayne impersonator and as a hero. While it is not the typical superman story, it is compelling. Superman: American Alien, has featured in IGN, Kotaku and AV Club's best comicbooks of 2016. It was even a New York Time Bests seller. For all you Super Fans, this a must read that you should run out and get. As with Rebirth, DC is clearly demonstrating its ability to mine gold out of property everyone thought they knew.
Double Kudos DC.
