I enjoyed this 6th edition a lot more than I expected to. Byrne just pencils three issues here, the least of the first 6 volumes, but story-wise I found this paperback to be surprisingly entertaining.
Highlights here for me... *Superman Annual- Titano! Best monkey story I've read in awhile. If you like monkey comics- and really, who doesn't? :)- you might want to give this a try. *Action 594- Great cover! It's the 1st in an entertaining 2-part story featuring Booster Gold. It's my favorite story in the entire volume. It's also the 1st Byrne pencils we see here- and it begins on page 121(!). The previous editions had Byrne artwork on the 1st page. I love these Booster Gold issues for their clean, cityscape visuals & content. It also briefly guest-stars Batman & Robin. *Booster Gold 23- Continuing the story from Action 594- Great fun. *Action 595- Silver Banshee! She looks a lot like some of the girls I went to high school with. Martian Manhunter guest...
I wouldn't consider myself an expert on comics (nor I'm interested in becoming one) but I do know the kind of things I really like and for instance John Byrne's version of superman is in my (humble) opinion the most humane one I have ever seen; I mean he is powerful and stuff but he is not a semi-god with unlimited powers capable of breaking all physics laws (time barrier, breathing in water and in space, unlimited strength etc, etc and etc) like previous and most current versions of the character which in my mind makes the character more real (as far as it can be); another thing that I like of this version of Superman is the stories, they are really easy to understand and follow and most important with a solid base and foundation that will prevent them from becoming cheeze and predictable. I have to say that I love reading stories from Superman in the seventies and early eighties but nothing compared to the stories written after "The Crisis" back in 85. I can hardly wait to read the...

This sixth volume continues the Man of Steel series. John Byrne is on writing duties once again and this time he's flanked by Ron Frenz, Jim Starlin, and Dan Jurgens, with Marv Wolfman sitting this one out. I know of several individuals whom weren't happy with Byrne's run on Superman, but when considering that most of those naysayers are heavy fans of Pre-Crisis DC, most notably the Golden Age, I think it's safe to say that they can be ignored for the most part, due to the fact they usually scoff at the slightest amount of change. These are some very solid Superman stories that work pretty well with its suspense, villains, and this time around...
