I love when I m surprised by a book I ve read Greg Pak before On Alchemy he s not really my kind of writer and after Grant Morrison left Action Comics I didn t expect the series to be as good but the first volume of Pak and Aaron Kuder s run is uality Lana Langappens to be part of a mining operation in Venezuela which unwittingly unleashes a subterranean monster Superman to the rescue The book starts off with the chaff There s a wholly pointless rehashing of Superman s origins taken from the short lived and unpopular Secret Origins series is there Civil Rights and the Environment in African American Literature 1895 1941 honestly anyone reading this who isn t 100% clear on Superman s origins at this point and a Zero Year tie in where Morrison s t shirt and jeans Superman saves a ship in a storm The latter isn t bad but totally unnecessary Bullshit aside we finally get into the main storyline What Lies Beneath which looks like a straightforward Supermanits Godzilla type monster story at first but develops into something nuanced and interesting Pak writes a really good Superman The inner monologue sounds right Star Wars: The Force Awakens his actions and it lives up to its title of Action Comics with some big action scenes are bang one s putting preserving life ahead of everything this feels like Superman as Timo l'Aventurier tome 1 he should be Without giving too much away about the monster the story is broadly about misunderstood outsiders being perceived as one thing because of their looks and being rejected a very Superman theme The nonuman characters tend to behave Politik Luar Negeri Indonesia Di Tengah Pusaran Politik Domestik humanely than normalumans as the Godzilla monster Baka isn t the real threat an American called Ghost Soldier is The best Superman fights are the ones where e s not just stupidly itting something as L'art d'aimer hard ase can a la James Robinson s Superman with Ghost Soldier s phased weaponry which can pass through solid objects Collins French with Paul Noble - Learn French the Natural Way, Part 3 he can cut into and damage Superman s body without the MacGuffin of kryptonite which I m pleased to say isn t in this story at all Superman is shown to be vulnerable andas to think of other ways to defeat The Folding Star his opponent Better yet Ghost Soldier actuallyas character development too showing that My Husbands Under Here Somewhere he isn t one dimensionally evil I look forward to seeing ofim and Apiculture et dprdateurs des produits de la ruche his shady organisation Harrow in the next book Pak writes a strong Lana Lang who s sorta like Lara Croftere whose friendship with Clark is convincing and enjoyable Refreshingly there s no Lois Lane being forced into the story to get Superman to talk about Questions that Islam can't answer - Volume one himself and there s no Daily Planet or Lex either Pak shows Superman needn t be formulaic and that s a big part of whyis take works so well Maybe it s because is style reminds me a little of Chris Burnham s but I loved Aaron Kuder s art There are some really striking images throughout and I didn t even mind the New 52 Superman outfit as much with Kuder drawing Baka does sorta look a bit like the Bamfs from Wolverine and the X Men though and the Ghost Soldier design is a tad unexciting and bland Their Action Comics isn t as cerebral as Morrison s but Pak and Kuder prove to be an excellent creative team for Superman Their first book together is full of great stuff from strong characterisation wonderful art and a fast moving compelling storyline The test of a worthwhile Superman writer is someone who can stay true to the character without resorting to making im dark or evil and still keep the reader engaged I m pleased to say Greg Pak passes superbly Definitely check out What Lies Beneath if you re a Superman fan I didn t ate this Is this series actually getting better It s so refreshing to read a GOOD Superman book for a chan. This BATMAN ZERO YEAR tie in features the reintroduction of a major character as a cocky young Superman battles the forces of nature to save Gotham.
Ge Yes This title continues to get better better Pak did an excellent job with this volume and wrote a story that really showcased Superman s strengths as a character Ok first you ave Clark s Secret Origins issue Now I d already read it in the Secret Origins vol 1 collection but I thought it was a good fit for this volumeIt s a touching story about ClarkKal told through the overlapping voices of the two women who loved Kuli Kontrak him mostHis biological mother Lara who sentim away to save im And is adopted mother Martha who raised The Zukofsky Era him to embraceis Basic Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Body humanity It s sappy but it works as a short storyIave to say I believe one of the biggest mistakes the New 52 made was killing off Martha Kent The motherson dynamic between those two shouldn t be wasted Besides I think it Soins naturels pour les cheveux helps keep a character as powerful as Superman groundedumanized when you see Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Tome 44 : Mon papa n'est pas mon papa him goingome and elping is mom out with chores Zero Year also makes its way into this volume but it s not set in Gotham so I m not sure what the point was I guess it s just there to let us know what Clark was up to while Bruce was off fighting the Riddlerand learning to be The Batman Eh Whatever It didn t suck It shows a cocky t shirt wearing Superman trying to beat back the forces of nature and finding out that sometimes a softer touch is neededOn to the main eventLana Lang is uickly turning into one of my favorites and stories like this one are the reason why These two share a deep trust that comes from years of friendship and it really make their interactions on the panel pop Not to mention they used to date when they were younger so there s still a tiny part of each of them that still wants to impress the other It makes for an interesting dynamic and one that you don t see done well very oftenOk the main story takes place before the events of Doomed I wish I d read this one first because it explains who the blue monster kid was and where Winning Ways For Your Mathematical Plays Volume 2 Games in Particular he came from It also explains who theell Ghost Soldier is and why Clark would maybe trust L'Art au XXe sicle : Tome 1, Les avant-gardes him Without giving away the plot I just want to say that THIS Superman needs to be the role model for all the future incarnationsI m an immensely powerful being and FUCK YOU if you think you can make me do something that goes against my moralsThank you Pak Thank you Superman should kick ass and take names bute should not act like a bully or psychopath This volume is a perfect blend of that Clark Kamarja e turpit has a great moral compass ande as the mojo to back up is decisions Excellent job on nailing Les Chevaliers du Zodiaque : St Seiya, tome 28 his personality in this oneDefinitely Recommended For SuperfansGet this review and at I can t believe I skipped this one on my initial Acton Comics reading run See I read volume 1 3 and after 3 I was drained cause Morrison wrote the last two volumes tourt me So then I read volume 4 and it was OKAY But still I was burnt So I didn t return till near the Truth arc and skipped volume 5 6 and went into 7 8 I shouldn t Os pastôres da noite have done that Though I ll skip 6 causeere it s awful Volume 5 is really a book you can pick up BY ITSELF It s very good self contained superman story that Recollections of an Australian suatter hits all the right marks Clark is going around the city saving the world but before we get that we get a little Zero Year story about clark Then we turn right into modern day where we get a reunited Clark and Lana Lang Except they meet up again because a big blue monster is attackinger What I liked I fucking LOVED the chemistry and dialog between Lana and Clark It s so well done and feels authentic I wanted THEM to get together Screw Wonder Woman Then you The Vanishing Hours have the big City Superman must also figure out who or what is the Ghost Soldier and what mysterious ties doese Wickie Slime und Paiper Das Online Erinnerungsalbum fur die Kinder der siebziger Jahre have to The Man of Steel Wille side with Supe.
