Best... Superman... Review... Ever.

This is essentially it. Scott Kurtz pretty much nailed what Superman Returns felt like: a return to innocence. I'm a huge fan of Scott's work at PvP online, something you really should check out. Apologies to Mr.Kurtz for resizing the comic to fit into my blog format. For a better look at the comic, head on over to PvP online. Read the archives. This is quite possibly the best webcomic out there right now. We should all grow up to be Superman.

Should remind you that PVP is pretty much overrated.

Well, I'm going to have to disagree with "anonymous" up there. Not only is Kurtz not a hack, and not only is PvP not over-rated, and not only is it true that he nailed Superman Returns in that strip, but he encapsulated the sense of wonder that makes me a sci-fi fan in general. A good sci-fi movie can make me feel just like the characters in that strip: transported to a time before smug pretension destroyed my ability to enjoy anything not laden with a heavy dose of irony. Kurtz understands what is so great about a good sci-fi film: it makes you feel like a kid again. I, for one, enjoy that sensation, and I think that Kurtz' insight into that phenomenon is brilliantly illustrated in that strip.

That first poster is obviously a troll trying to stir up trouble. Anyone who knows Kurtz's work knows he's one of the best in the field.
