However, when LOBO finally manages to wrangle up the MAN OF STEEL, the aliens aren't far behind.

First sentence: On the faraway planet of Apokolips, a spaceship rumbled to a halt, kicking up a cloud of dirt and debris on the landing pad. Acquired: Received a review copy from Stone Arch Books. Reason for Reading: This book is too hard for my ds to read on his own and will be read aloud by dh as a bedtime book. But I like my superheroes too and wasn't going to miss out on the fun! I like Superman fairly well. He's not my *favourite*, but he's cool. I hadn't heard of any of the bad guys in this story: Lobo, Kalibak and Desaad but I enjoyed this book the most of the 3 books I've just read in this series recently. Action packed from start to finish. We even have Lois going at Clark for scooping her on the front page once again to start the story off. It doesn't take long before Clark leaves Lois and Jimmy behind and the super action to start as Lobo is creating a havoc that Superman must put a stop to. Lobo (a bounty hunter) has been hired by the ruler of Kalibak and Desaad's planet to capture Superman with a new invention and bring him back to the planet. But when K & D interfere and Lobo finds himself captured and headed for Apokolips' dungeons too, he and Superman team up to turn the tables. Lobo is a great villain here, he's actually a lot of fun for the full of himself biker-type. A great entry in the series. Written and illustrated by comic industry professionals, the story and characters all have an authentic feel. Each chapter has at least one full page illustration, some even have two, the pages of pure text are broken up for the reader by using comic book style graphics, in colour, for all the sound effect words. This nicely breaks up a two page spread of text which may otherwise seem daunting to reluctant readers. One of my favourites in the series.
