Everyone knows the story of how Superman came to Earth, but only comic fans know the rest of the story--the background of Superman 's mom and dad and life on Krypton. Anderson takes on the task of fleshing out the doomed world in THE LAST DAYS OF KRYPTON. Such a story begs for a cinematic-style audio treatment to bring it vividly to life, and William Dufris puts everything into his performance--including getting a little hammy with the dialogue of the villains. Anderson relied more on the Superman films than the comics for inspiration, a strategy that may drive comic fans nuts because of the many violations of established continuity. But if one accepts this as a stand-alone story, it works. M.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
