These stories reminded me a lot of Kurt Busiek's "Astro City," both in their tone and form. Like those books, these stories deconstruct the superhero genre - embracing the trappings of the form (skintight costumes, silly villain names, etc) and imbuing them with a real world sensibility and darkness.
I particularly liked the sexual politics and gender roles at play in these stories.
To be clear, if you've never read anything but 70's era Superman books, these stories are not for you. But anyone who likes the work of Mark Millar, Kurt Busiek, or Warren Ellis should find these six stories a real treat.
