Part of the Superman: One-Shots Series). by Kim Howard Johnson and John Cleese. If that name brings a smile of recognition to your face, then this book is for you! Rather than being a vessel to explore the character of Superman, "True Brit" is aimed squarely at Great Britain, its culture and foibles. The land of the stiff upper lip, cricket, and Page Three girls is shown to be a very silly place, indeed.

Great concept, a la Red Sun, but I lost interest halfway through. Not a fan of the inking and the humor was sporadic at best. Still, I'm glad I bought it just to have it in my collection .

Kim Howard Johnson: Hello, John?
John Cleese: Yes, who is this?
KHJ: Kim Johnson.
John: The name is vaguely familiar...
KHJ: I wrote "The First 28 Years of Monty Python," remember?
JC: Ah, yes. Well, whats new?
KHJ: DC wants me to do a book about Superman being raised British. I wanted to throw in "Bicycle Repairman" and the "Rutles" if you don't mind.
JC: The Rutles was Eric's. Don't blame me if it doesn't bowl anyone over.
KHJ: (Animal noises at his end) Sorry, I didn't quite catch that. The ocelot was acting up. Put your name on the cover? Sure, naturally.
JC: (Animal noises at his end) Sorry, the orangutan is...being disagreeable. Didn't quite catch that. Oh dear, now he's into the fish tank again, Sorry, I'll have to call you back.

That's the only possible explanation I can think of for this.

This was a fun read. Things would be very, very, different if Superman had landed in Britain. I'm so very glad he found his home in Kansas.

Kind of silly but the art is pretty good

Classic Cleese twist on the Man Of Steel

Great storyline! John Cleese humor comes through loud and clear.

Wow, I cannot believe how boring I found this book. While I did enjoy the artwork, the writing is just dull, flat, lifeless. I expected soooo much more from the man who wrote Faulty Towers. Not for Superman fans, not for Cleese fans, not for anyone, really.
As always John Byrne does an outstanding job with the pencils for this graphic novel. The story on the other hand was very disappointing. I don't know if it was just too "British" for me but I just didn't find it entertaining. The approach that was taken with Superman as a British citizen was not very flattering to the British people as a whole and the type of hero the British Superman became was insulting to the American version. I realize this is an "Else Worlds" tale and does not "count" from a continuity perspective but I did expect a more Superman-like story. Unless you really enjoy British perspectives on American heroes, I wouldn't waste your money on this one. There are plenty of other works by John Byrne to buy.
