I loved it. Wow, did I love it. Better than I hoped, I'm kind of stunned by how good it is. Grant Morrsion and Rags Morales deliver the most dynamic, exciting, action-packed Superman in years. (With no small bit of help from Spider-Man 2...)
Thanks for the thread, Lise! Your fantasy recommendation sounds neat. In terms of fantasy, I have to give an obvious plug for the Dresden Files (jim-butcher.com). The author generally gives out the first chapter or two for each book.
