Jon's Random Acts of Geekery is your five days a week destination for old-school geekery!
Yes, who can forget that thrilling day Superboy left Smallville...on the bus???????Actually, everything about that last page is off -- it compresses the most momentous and emotional stuff in an effort to cram it all in at the last moment, while "Clark puts on his shoes after getting out of bed" and "Clark and his dad walk to the Kent general store" each get a whole page to themselves. It's like this was written in a single draft without going back for a readthrough. Nelson Bridwell would have done much better.
I always liked how Lex became Supermans Enemy. Gave a nice bit to the character, more then just the Richie Rich based 'Kingpin of Crime' he became... and nothing sums up the moment when Superboy (by mistake) removed Lex's hair for good, his pride and joy, then the line "From now on, We're Enemies!".. I don't know why i like that.. but i do ^_^Oh and if this was a longer book then.. Between Clark wishing to play football, and leaving small ville (i'm not quite sure if before or after Lex) he is taken to the future to met a group that made a superhero club in his honor, but refuse to make him a member.. Classic cover that one..
Remember, this was definitely done for small kids, probably ages 3-5 or so... the previously-posted "Superman: From Krypton to Metropolis" went into much more detail!
