Superior #1; Millar & Yu

I just got done reading one of this week's best new comic book releases, Mark Millar and Leinel Yu's Superior #1. Actually this was my second reading of Superior #1 because, yes, it is that good. Superior is another creator owned title from Mark Millar (Kick Ass and Nemesis) for Marvel's Icon line, but while Superior has some "language" it doesn't have any of the shock value elements of most of Mark Millar's other comic book work (and this is not me saying there's anything especially wrong with comics with shock value elements, just that Millar is able to tell other kinds of stories).

All one needs to know about what Superior is, is that it is Mark Millar's updating of the Superman and Captain Marvel characters in a "real" world scenario. This is one of those titles that I'm sure that anyone who reads the first issue will definitely be eagerly awaiting the following issues!
