Well, at least we've got some approximation of a classic Superman look to enjoy when DC's reboot takes root.

Superman #2

Well, we've seen the real cover to Action Comics #1 now, and have been underwhelmed.  You'd think there'd be some kind of throwback imagery or some such, but no dice.  It seems like Grant Morrison is being given free reign here to rewrite Clark Kent's origins, while the legendary George Perez is rolling out the new-look modern-day Superman, perhaps to appease those whose noses are out of joint by a T-shirt and half-cape.

Take a look at these cover images from the #2 issues of the Supertitles in DC's New 52.
