    One thought on “Superman: Camelot Falls, Vol. 1

    1. Sam Quixote

      Kurt Busiek’s written a couple of great Superman books but unfortunately Camelot Falls ain’t one of them!A 17th century wizard time-travels to the present to warn Superman that the future is grim if he keeps up being heroic. In a totally unconnected subplot, Supes has to punch a crappy Doomsday-knockoff before having to fight an even more one-dimensional baddie called Khyber. Deeeerivel? Yope – drivel indeed!Busiek writes a great Lois and Clark and their characters were spot on in that ope [...]

      I wouldn't call myself a Superman *fan* exactly. If we're talking straight-up Superhero stuff, I'm much more of a Batman sort of guy. That said, everyone enjoys a good Superman story now and again. Most of the time I prefer stories about exceptional people doing their best in complicated situations, struggling against forces that threaten to overwhelm them. (Which is why I like to read about Batman, or Harry Dresden for that matter.) But sometimes it's nice to read a story where the hero is the [...]

      I actually read this story in single issues. I didn't enjoy it a lot at first but after I re-read, I saw the vision and talent Busiek put onto the story.It has everything you want from a Superman story, high-concept heroics, great characterization, strong supporting cast and threatening villains.I loved the villains. Both Subjekt 17 and of course the main villain Arion are great. Particularly Arion was so threatening and charming and considering his motives you think of him as a hero in his own [...]

      Awesome Superman story!! Requires a bit of DC comics knowledge to fully enjoy but if you're really just reading it for Sups and you don't care about details you should be fine.

    5. Sarah

      This comic was fine. It wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either. It just wasn't my favorite Superman adventure. I'm not as big a fan of magic in comic books, just because I personally think sci-fi elements work better in that genre, but I get why it was needed. How else could Superman be warned of an oncoming doom? How else could he be forced to choose between permitting a catastrophe or continuing to fight and, therein, allowing a bigger catastrophe with greater loss of life to occur? It's [...]

      A lot of good and some bad make this a slightly uneven collection. Firstly, the narrative is interesting in concept, but in practice is repetitive and all over the place. A little soul searching by Kal is fine, but Busiek emphasises and re-emphasises this several times. The use of Arion is ok, nice cameos from Phantom Stranger and Zatanna, and Busiek knows his history.The art by Pacheco is excellent, lovely clean lines an£ some great panels.Very readable, though not essential collection.

    7. Marc's Comics

      Busiek does an admirable job of mixing 70's-style fun with modern storytelling, but this first part is fairly inconsistent. Superman heads to Kazakhstan to battle a monster named Subjekt-17, who is a not very interesting Doomsday-lite (He was experimented on! He keeps getting stronger! He speaks in fragments!). It almost seems like Busiek got bored with him as well, because he is rapidly dismissed to make way for the second part of the story (my apologies if Subjekt-17 shows up in Vol. 2) which [...]

      I'm guessing I'd have to have read the prequel to this to actually be able to fully "get it" also the ending suggests a sequel that I would probably need to read as well to tie up all the loose ends.I'm also guessing that if I did read either I'd then probably have to read the prequel to the prequel and the sequel to the sequel, and so on, and so on.Such is the life of an on-going comic series, I get it, it's part of an on-going story printed as single comics and collected into this trade hardco [...]

    9. Roman Colombo

      Well, it is SO FAR a really good Superman storyI'm not the biggest Superman fan though. Busiek does have some strong writing here, though, going through the challenges of what Lois and Clark face, and an impossible taskat sets up Vol 2. That's kind of the problem here. It's not a two volume story. This volume doesn't work by itself at all.So, off to read volume 2, and hope the art stays as awesome as the first volume.

    10. Mark

      The contrast between this book and "For Tomorrow" is so striking Brian A (100 Bullets) is trying to write "dark" graphic fiction & Kurt Busiek is trying to write stories about heroes. No question which one I like better - Kurt B. all the way!It'd be cool if Kurt B. started working on the TV show "Heroes", btw.

    11. Michael

      This book starts out good and I love how Lois lane is written, but from the moment subject 17 shows up( which I find to be a lame doomsday knockoff) it goes downhill and all over the place. It then leaves a non conclusion for another time.

    12. Iris Nevers

      This comic book took me a while to read because of school, but it is a very quick read. The story is fresh, exciting, and not something I would expect. I can't wait to read the second half of the story. This was definitely a good read for my first Superman story.

    13. Shannon Appelcline

      A nice standalone, 'On Our Special Day' [7]; an OK punch-ed-up in Russia [6]; and an exciting intro to Camelot Falls [8]."

    14. Keith Moser

      This book was recommended to me by my wife's step-dad. I told him how I was sort of disappointed when I recently read All-Star Superman and he told me this (which he read back when it came out as singles) was one of his favorite Superman stories.I love the writing—a lot of inset narrations from Superman (and Lois in diary form) which sets up everything. There's little to no guessing at what's happening and I love that. The art is very nice, and I like how the story sort of takes place in three [...]
