I think I like it.
But I'm hesitant, perhaps because it's such a drastic change. Outside of Kid Flash (Wally West), no character (that I've seen) has been changed more than Clark Kent.
That's because this is a different version of both Superman and Clark. This version is married to Lois Lane, they have a son, Jon, who's (I'm guessing) about 10 years old and just starting to develop his own powers.
They live on a farm near Metropolis, and they go by the name "Smith."
So that all takes some getting used to.
This issue is a father-and-son outing, as Superman brings Jon along on what seems to be a standard rescue of a stranded submarine - but quickly takes a darker and more dangerous turn.
The series is well-written by Peter J. Tomasi and I like the fresh, energetic art by Patrick Gleason and Mick Gray, and it's going to be interesting to see how they build this new life and new story for a new Man of Steel.
But it may take a few more issues before I'm sure.
