Suspended Animation Review: Superman The Man Of Steel

Superman TPB: Man of Steel Vol. 1Superman The Man Of Steel
John Byrne, Dick Giordano, Tom Ziuko

Superman is an American icon. In fact, there is probably no better-recognized fictional character in the world. So, considering the fact that Krypton's favorite son has had at least one monthly comic published on a regular basis for about the last seventy-five years, it might be called ludicrous to attempt to pinpoint the finest Superman work EVER.

Suspended Animation Review: Batman Tarzan Claws Of The Catwoman

Suspended Animation: Batman Tarzan Claws Of The CatwomanBatman/Tarzan: Claws of The Catwoman, published by Dark Horse Comics, 96 pages.

When it comes to comic book stories, I'm a sucker for crossovers. It's very basic: when a fan has formed a respect and admiration for two characters, intrigue at the thought of throwing them together naturally follows. And, having grown up on cartoons featuring Batman and Tarzan, the "little guy" in me had the most to say about plunking down the cash for Batman/Tarzan: Claws of The Catwoman.

Suspended Animation Review: Ghostopolis

Ghostopolis SCGhostopolis, published by Graphix, a division of Scholastic Inc., 266 pages, $12.99.

It is difficult today to find comics works dealing with the darker side of the supernatural which do not employ a fair-to-massive amount of gore, or a fascination with the occult. This could be due to the fact that comics have become much too focused on adults (and that the creators assume adult readers WANT such material). Or, it may just be that most creators are not as talented as Doug TenNapel.

Billy Tucci A Child Is Born One ShotBilly Tucci's A Child is Born, published by Apostle Arts, LLC (2011), 32 pages, $5.99.

Despite the controversy which some have managed to build around the holiday, Christmas remains an important, cherished time for most people world-wide. And one story from which the season will never be divested (nor should it), is that of the birth of Jesus, the Christ. Now, families who treasure that annual retelling can have one of the most beautiful representations of it I have ever seen. Whether they are comics fans or not, I believe most would appreciate A Child is Born, by Billi Tucci.

Outlaw Prince TPBThe Outlaw Prince, published by Dark Horse Comics, 80 pages, $12.99.

As in all media, there are works in comics which seem to elevate the potential of the form. These are the stories that you read and then think, "Why can't MORE comicbooks be like this?" Here's another occasion to ask yourself that question: a four-color tale called The Outlaw Prince.

Suspended Animation Review: Star Trek Assignment Earth

Star Trek Assignment Earth TPBStar Trek – Assignment: Earth, published by IDW Publishing in 2008, 136 pages, $19.99.

Growing up, I was a fan of the original Star Trek series, which had long since begun its run in syndication. Many years later, I learned a now-well-known piece of Trek trivia: the final episode of Season Two, "Assignment: Earth", was originally meant to herald a spin-off series of the same name. Whatever appeal and potential fans may believe it had, network bigwigs passed.

Disney Pixar Presents Incredibles City Of IncrediblesThe Incredibles: City of Incredibles, published by Marvel Worldwide, Inc., 96 pages, magazine format, $5.99.

Fun. It's what comics were all about when I was a kid. Pure, unadulterated, action-oriented, and sometimes even laugh-out-loud fun. It's what I wish more of them were about today. But, until such a day comes, I'll be content with the occasional such offering, like Disney and Marvel's The Incredibles: City of Incredibles.
