Geek Goggle Reviews: Action Comics #41

Superman gets a new direction with this issue of Action Comics. The comic book sets out to be world-building and character driven. As such, the book has very little action and appears to use the new direction for Superman as the plot. The comic book is an average read and doesn't seem to instill too much faith that the book will become interesting in future issues.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Action Comics #23.2 General Zod

Pak & Lashley

Zod's origin story. Pak delivers a comprehensive and entertaining origin for Zod, starting way back to his childhood. Obviously, origin stories can be dull at times and sort of by-the-numbers, but Pak does his best to deliver a read that feels natural and I think he does a good job at it. The 3-D cover is cool and the story within matches the cover in this case.

Morrison, Morales & Bryant

The big fish of all the DC reboots is that of Superman, specifically Action Comics. Of the heavy hitters in the DCU he seems to have the most that's changing, so in some ways the success of the DCU reboot is tied to this book and Superman proper. The first issue brings in most of the key players from the Superman mythos as Morrison crafts a good story for the first issue while laying out the groundwork for the long-term arc and the longer-term themes of the series. In the end, though, I just didn't find all that much to get me hooked into this series. It's a serviceable introduction issue for the reboot but it just isn't enough to keep this once long-time fan of the character coming back for more.

The giant-sized, anniversary issue of the oldest periodical (numbering wise from the big two) ships this week with a strange choice for a main story and several smaller stories to provide an array of creators in hopes of bringing more casual readers to the table. For the most part, this issue provides a very entertaining read, but will undoubtedly be remembered for one little nugget hidden away in one of the smaller stories. There's a lot to like in here and I think this issue helps to give casual readers a sense of the state of the character while giving the regular readers of the title something to satisfy their needs.

Action Comics #873 REVIEW

Action Comics #873
DC Comics
Johns, Woods, Guedes & Magalhaes

New Krypton wraps up in this issue with a real nice battle and an interesting solution to the problem of Kandor being on Earth. However, the issue misses slightly in the excitement factor. It’s possible that the issue’s thunder was stolen because of what happens in the two epilogues. That’s usually not a good sign when the prospect of future stories makes the one that just ended seem small and unimportant.

Here are this week’s comics ranked prior to reading them:

3. GI Joe #1
2. Action Comics #875
1. Green Lantern Corps #32

I passed on the Obama Spider-Man team up because it was only a five page story in the back. I also passed on Final Crisis #6 because it appeared Batman’s final adventure wasn’t the bulk of the issue.

Here are the rankings after the first read through with a mini-review:
