Curiously, Jimmy Olsen and the rest of the Daily Planet crew are absent from this issue. The focus is once again upon Ulysses - strange visitor from another dimension, who has turned to Superman for guidance as he finds himself in what turns out to be the world of his birth. The first part of this issue continues on from last month's closing revelation - that Clark Kent was able to track down Ulysses' scientist parents and uncovered the truth of how they sent him away in circumstances that mirror what Clark's own birth parents did to save his life.
Unsurprisingly, the artwork by John Romita Jr.and Klaus Janson is as good as one would expect. The action, once it starts, is well displayed but JRJ is just as capable of rendering the softer, quieter moments that this script requires.. The coloring by Laura Martin is also praise-worthy, with a variety of palettes being used throughout to subtly indicate the story's multifarious settings.
