Tomasi (SUPERMAN), usher in the Man of Steel’s final days in SUPERMAN: ACTION COMICS VOL. 9: LAST RITES. Superman’s downfall, impossible as it seems, has come at the hands of Vandal Savage. After eons of seeking a method to draw back to Earth the meteor that granted him immortality, Savage has discovered he can realize that goal by tapping into the Man of Steel’s super-abilities, and in turn the combined might of the Justice League. With the Last Son of Krypton powerless to stop him, the immortal is primed to recall the comet that granted him eternal power. And as it nears Earth, it also awakens Savage’s genetic signature within members of the world’s unsuspecting populace. Literally growing mad with power, Savage’s progeny will stop at nothing to ensure their patriarch succeeds. Superman’s salvation—and Earth’s—may lie in the one substance that’s lethal to the Man of Steel. Should he use it and somehow defeat Savage, one thing will be certain: regardless of the outcome, Superman as the world knows him will be no more. Authors Greg Pak, Aaron Kuder and Peter J. Tomasi team up with help from all-star artists Paul Pelletier (AQUAMAN), Dale Eaglesham (SECRET SIX) and Scot Eaton (NEW 52: FUTURES END) for SUPERMAN: ACTION COMICS VOL. 9: LAST RITES! Collects: Superman – Action Comics #48-52.

    There's absolutely no reason for DC to have even collected this. All of the issues are part of two other crossovers and you only get one fifth of the story by reading this alone. Save your money, skip this and check out the two crossovers instead: Superman: Savage Dawn and Superman: Final Days of Superman. There's absolutely no reason for DC to have even collected this.

    This was Superman week for me and I'm finally getting to update my Goodreads profile. This wasn't the greatest Superman series I've read (cuz, you know, I have soooo much experience with Superman comics...) but I did like the artwork. A few of the volumes were fun but most seemed redundant. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Superman, but this series was mediocre at best. 3 Stars overall This was Superman week for me and I'm finally getting to update my Goodreads profile.

    Just like H'el on Earth and several other crossovers in this series, this one was hard to completely follow. Its something I hope Rebirth will get away from. Too many books involved in 1 story.

    You know what? This is unacceptable. If you have a crossover story, you publish all of it together. You don't publish a quarter of it, throw in synopsis of the three-four issues you didn't include and then NOT INCLUDE THE BLOODY ENDING in the collection, and call it good. I mean it's the end of this era of Action Comics, you renumbered the series and the collections with Rebirth, so there's no reason this should have been published like it was.

I mean it's the end of this era of Action Comics, you renumbered the series and the collections with Rebirth, so there's no reason this should have been published like it was. It's insulting to the readers, it's an affront to the writers, who are basically guaranteed their story won't be read appropriately, and it is just a waste of paper. It doesn't help that the pieces of the story are stupid as well. Vandal Savage wants to catch a meteor? So he finds his descendants (I'll admit that was a decent concept), and then launches them as test subjects? And then that story just ends with a 2 sentence summary, and suddenly Superman's dying and there's a 'solar superman?' There's so much stupid in the story, I'm honestly not certain reading the entire thing at once would have improved it. And then the final issue throws another wrench in the works, again with absolutely no resolution. This is just an embarrassing publication that DC should be ashamed of putting out.

    So, the "New 52" finally comes to an end, but this mockery cannot go gently into that goodnight, so they kill Superman. And you know what? They can have him. This incarnation of the greatest superhero of all time was neither great nor super. So, bring on parallel earth Superman, or whatever else you want to do, because ding dong the "New 52" is dead!

    So after I read the last Superman volume, "Return to Glory" I was disappointed because it was so lackluster and more importantly, kind of in shambles. Now that I read "Last Rites" I understand the situation a bit better. So the whole Vandall Savage story-line, is kind of an event that spans through 3 separate books! It would be NICE if DC would let us know this so that we just dont read volumes and assume they have their heads up their butt and are now publishing disjointed plots and half assed So after I read the last Superman volume, "Return to Glory" I was disappointed because it was so lackluster and more importantly, kind of in shambles.

It would be NICE if DC would let us know this so that we just dont read volumes and assume they have their heads up their butt and are now publishing disjointed plots and half assed volumes. If they would've done that, I could review the entire run, but instead, I am forced to review volume by volume, which, as you guessed, means that this gets a low rating because its a disjointed mess. Again, they dont reference the other books until the end of certain chapters that say "continued in superman/wonderwoman #whatever". Why they would break this story up and not let anyone know is beyond me. But it definitley is not smart and the work suffers for it. I added an extra star because the Kuder pages are a pleasure to look at. This guy can draw his ass off. His art is dynamic, engaging, detailed but cartoony at the same time. Just awesome is what it is. I would say if you have the other volumes... jump back and forth between the three books? That way you at least get a cohesive plot. If not, skip it.

    This has the same problem as the other Superman collections written at this time. It's part of a larger story but the larger story is written in other books entirely. And now that I'm here, the other Supermen? Doesn't really make sense (and because the story is in other books), there's no real payoff.

    This was the last book in this series before Rebirth. I was hoping to get some insight into some of the stuff that went down in that first Rebirth book, but this one got pretty confusing because there was a lot of stuff that happened as crossovers in other series.

    WARNING: DO NOT BUY! Waste of money and time. Random piece parts of different crossovers, does not make a story. Just because the last issues were parts of other stories, doesn't mean you put it into a collection. Collect the stories themselves. DC really let down fans here. WARNING: DO NOT BUY!

    This volume was just a mess. I'm not even sure why DC bothered publishing this. They should have just promoted Savage Dawn and The Last Days of Superman which feature all of these issues, plus the gaps that this barely attempts to fill. This volume was just a mess.

    Too broken apart into different "crossover" events to be a narrative. At least this volume has little chapter-breaks which explain what was missed in other issues, but that wasn't enough to make this mess worth reading. I'm not sure why I'm not giving it one star.

    While I appreciate the return of an original character (or however you want to put it), the disjointed storytelling across the different volumes and titles are just too off-putting.

    Cool story, but the packaging is ridiculous.

    End of Savage Dawn wasn't as impeccable as I was hoping it would be, but the tie-in to End of Superman, and the re-introduction of the original Superman really raised my spirits for where Superman and Action Comics are leading to in the coming years.

    Really hurt be being partial issues from big multi title arcs (which I have read) so the volume really does not unite a full story.
