CBR Review: Action Comics #2

I recently reviewed Action Comics #2 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "It’s funny how taking Superman back to his late ‘30s roots feel so modern and refreshing, isn’t it? An anti-establishment Man of Steel hunted by the United States military with Lex Luthor at the helm helped kick off the relaunched Action Comics, and the second issue raises the stakes with Superman strapped into an electric chair and tortured as Luthor and his team try to figure out how to actually do lasting damage to the hero. What’s most surprising is how entertaining that is. How easy it is to laugh it off -- for both us and Superman himself. It may be a cliché, but this isn’t your dad’s Superman; it’s your (great) granddad’s and it’s rather good."
