Action Comics (2011) #23.2

Sep 14, 2013

A great issue that introduces Zod to the world of New 52, and Greg Pak does a wonderful job writing it. I used to read Action Comics when Grant Morrison is running the business, but I stopped when he did. Now if this is how things are if Pak is writing the series, then there's a high chance I will return to it.

Nov 12, 2015

Overall, All-New All-Different Avengers is a decent start to a franchise that has a solid potential. I'm intrigue what's going to happen next, and can't wait to see the team comes to its own. It's a bit disappointing the book take the familiar formula, but I'm sure something more interesting will come.

It's great that Bendi decides to add Magik to the case. She has always been an interesting character, but not too much chance to shine. I also really like it when the original X-Men received new costumes. ”I feel like an All-New X-Men.” Cheesy.

After establishingall the possible futures for the X-Men, the story is back to Beast's bedroom again. The true identity of the mystery visitor is revealed, and I can tell you that he's not Professor X. Yeah, I know that's what they want us to believe, and they did a good job doing that. Overall, it not clearwhat the future of X-Men will really be like, all we know is that things are never going to be the same again.

The reason for these future Brotherhood to come to our time was never really clear during the crossover event, and it's great that Bendis is giving us another run with these characters. All-New X-Men #27 opens a brand new arc with great conflicts, and it already has us on the edge of our seats.

The ending has the young Xavier sending a letter to his future self, warning him about things to come and how to avoid them. It seems like it's possible for young Xavier to make yet another appearance in the present day, but how that is going to play out is everyone's guess. A brand new arc begins next issue, and I can't wait to find out what's in store next.

The issue kind of ends in a bizarre place when the Jean-Grey School members arrive just like Uncanny X-Men #23. It ties the story back to what's going on in Uncanny X-Men, but it does so in an awkward manner. It puts a damper to the overall great story.

The issue is good and all, but just like the previous issue, you can't help it but feel the story is prolonged.

Jan 22, 2015

It's kind of difficult to see what the purpose of the crossover really is. As Marvel is bringing both mainstream universe and Ultimate Universe to an end, it's possible this is Marvel's way to show us how Miles interacting to our mainstream characters will be like. Anyway, I can't wait to see what the story will bring us next, and how it will possibly affect Secret Wars.

The Amazing Spider-Man #1 is a solid fun book to celebrate Peter Parker's return. While not everything in the book is a hit, it's still very exciting to see the return of a classic character. The issue might be better without some of the back-ups, but it does show that Marvel has plans for our favorite Web-Slinger.

Also, the issue also serves as the launching point for many Spider-Verse tie-ins. Spider-Woman, Spider-Man 2099 and more all have Spider-Verse tie-ins, and the issue is not shy to let you know you should read those to have the full experience. The little captions can be quite annoying from time to time, and individual Spiders running off to their own stories slow down the issue too. Hopefully now the tie-ins are set, the next issue won't suffer the same problems anymore.

The issue is technically second-to-the-last, as the next one is the epilogue. However, I do not believe Don Slott will have the time to give most of these Spideys a proper ending. At the end, Spider-Verse feels like another event Marvel rushes to finish because, well, reasons. That said, the issue is still fun though with plenty of actions, and Spider-Ham and Spider-Uncle Ben stealing the spotlight. I just hope Marvel can take its time to deal with the final battle in a more detail way, and allow us a better showdown with the enemies.

The issue is a bit expensive with $5.99 cover price. The reason is because the issue comes with a lot of backups to promote the other Spidey related titles.

This is not the Peter Parker we've known anymore. He needs to make tough decision for the best of his family, and he can't be careless anymore. It's great writer Dan Slott gives us a chance to see Peter Parker in his married life again, but it's a bit a shame that this story has absolutely nothing to do with the Secret Wars event, and it even introduced us a new villain, instead of putting an already existed character into the antagonist role.

At the same time, writer Mark Waid manages to make the two love rivals more in depth, as they're not just some one dimension character in love with an equally empty red head, but two girls whom are both complicated with thoughts and feelings.

Bizarro #1 starts strong. The writer captures Bizarro's charm perfectly, and the decision to pair the guy with Jimmy Olsen is a great one. The jokes are funny, and the style is even better. Reading the book is like watching a great cartoon, and I can't help it but to flip the page on after another. My only problem is to read Bizarro's reverse language from time to time, as it's really hard to tell what the guy is trying to say. If Bit-Mite above has an art of 90s cartoon, Bizarro has the style of present day cartoons. Not to say one style is better than the other, but Bizarro's style is definitely perfect for the sense of atmosphere the creators are trying to portray.

Also, the surprise return of a character is awesome! It's been too long since his last appearance in Justice League, and if anything, we ‘re finally getting more focus on Power Ring too. Prelude to Darkseid War is coming next month, and I can't wait.

Justice League: Futures End #1

Justice League Dark #24

Oct 24, 2013

Let's take a note that this is the first issue for writerJ.M. DeMatteis, and he does a wonderful job here. In fact, I think most of the writers do a wonderful job on the series and the transition is smooth. My only problem with this issue is the pacing. I kind of feel like we dragged on too long with Constantine, and it would be nicer if we can get to the point faster. Also, it seems like Constantine's accent is missing, something DeMatteis should be more careful about.

Despite Stargirl's great origin, the issue lacked of story progression. While most of the Forever Evil tie-in issues are quick on story pacing, this one suffers on that element. Nothing much happens in the issue, and the ending is confusing as well. Hopefully next issue will be better, and I wonder how Stargirl is going to defeat the Secret Society alone.

Justice League: Darkseid War: Superman #1

Nov 5, 2015

It's also interesting to note that the issue is missing some key figures in Metropolis, including Lois Lane. It's a head scratcher why the writer decides to not include such an important character in Superman's life, and it's really strange why Perry suddenly has such strong hatred for the Man of Steel himself. Maybe the writer confuses him with JJJ from Spider-Man? Anyway, while the Superman one-shot is still a pretty decent read, it's definitely not important enough for the overall Darkseid War.

Anyway, the issue is weak and it doesn't do anything at all to the ongoing Darkseid War. The art is solid, but it doesn't help with the lackluster storytelling. It doesn't feel like a proper issue at all, but more like a backup story instead. I was really hoping I could read a more proper Flash/Black Racer story instead.

Overall, the issue takes a to a new direction and threat for our survivors. There're only two issues left before the war is over, and it's still everyone's guess who's going to walk out of it alive.

Overall, All out War is not the event we were promised, and it doesn't need the 12 issues it received. The series is supposed to take a whole new direction after this, and the only way I can see this is through a time-skip for us to see this newly established community. Hopefully that will be the case, and looking forward to see the new Walking Dead next month.

Okay, let's try our best to talk about that shocking revelation without spoilers, the one that holds a gunpoint at Dante. He/she appears to be a black person, and possibly a woman as well. Can she actually be Michonne? The way Rick talks about Michonne in the previous issue seems to suggest they're not in good terms anymore. Also, it seems like Michonne's M.O. too, to blend into the walkers. I can easily see Michonne finding a more practical, and extreme way to blend into the walkers. I know it's a stretch, but if I turn out to be right, I want you to know you read it here first.

It's a fun issue with great actions. Jesus does a wonderful job against the Whispers, and that one prisoner is sure going to reveal more secrets. Carl's character development is interesting, but didn't we already know he's a troubled kid anyway? If those kids are dead, I'm curious on how the communities are going to punish Carl.

The pacing of the story can be a little faster though. We already know the Whisper Walkers are our main threat, but it would be nice if we know what they're plotting, or who their leader is. Meanwhile, I'm intrigued with the political part of the story inside the community. Gregory wants to kill Maggie, so it's interesting to see how the plot will play out.

Lydia's story is really haunting, and it shows how terrifying the situations are over there. It's really cute how attached Carl is to Lydia already, but I guess that's just how young loves are. Also, I'm a bit disappointed at Maggie's situation. I'm a big fan of Maggie's, and I don't want her to die, but I just hope something can actually come out of the poison attempt. Who knows, maybe Gregory actually acquires some slow-running drug that will kill Maggie when least expected. Yeah, now I'm worried.

Now the group has mastered the art of boating, the possibility is endless. Yes, the main idea is food source (fishes!), but I would really like to see what other countries are dealing with the zombie situations. No, I'm not talking about cutaways with brand new characters, but our survivors physically visiting those locations. I know Kirkman is against the idea of showing what the rest of the world is doing, but why not now? Maybe this will be the next story arc. A truly bigger world indeed.

The ending… oh man. I don't know what to think about it, but Kirkman usually likes to have cliffhangers that turn out to be nothing, so it's possibility that Negan will simply close the door and pretend nothing ever happened. Or he could sneak out, steal a gun and start killing anyone in his path. Yeah, I guess we will have to wait to find out.

The final scene is easily the most impact one in the entire issue. It's especially powerful as it comes right after Rick expresses his desire for a civilized society. The splash page is done beautifully, and it's instantly a classic Walking Dead moment. This is the first sign that Rick's ideal society is crumbling down, but it doesn't necessary mean what Maggie and others done is wrong though. Like I said, this is a very tricky issue, and I can't wait to find out Kirkman is going to do next.

Where's the comic series going now? The series comes a long way with survivors on the road trying to find a safe haven, and after the status quo changing “All Out War,” the series is all about how to build a society in a world like this. However, as the community is destroyed the survivors are forced to be back on the road again. This feels awfully familiar. Then again, both The Kingdom and Hilltop are still around, and the Saviors are coming in as the big boss, maybe the series is still heading towards a fresh direction. We will have to wait and find out.

The actions sequences are great and I especially love how Deadpool exits the comic. It's a bloodbath with many deaths on our villains's side. There're even some interesting complications where the past X-Men cannot return to their time anymore. However, none of these really paints a picture of why the villains are doing these. The event is about to end in two more issues, and I really don't think there are time to waste here. If the writer is willing to spend more time developing our villains, then it can easily be a much better issue.

It's been two issues already, and we're only slightly touched upon what's so secret about Xavier's will. It's a twist that Xavier is married to Mystique, but for some reason, I don't find that so surprising. I guess some intimate relationships between the two are already hinted in the pages of All-New X-Men, so this feels almost nothing to me. Despite the slow pacing though, I have high hope for this event, and looking forwardto see something exciting next.

Jason Aaron is great at detailing teenagers emotions, and other writers currently writing teen heroes books should learn a thing or two from him (*cough* Scott Lobdell*). Idie and Kid Omega share a wonderful moment together, and not out of place at all. My only problem with Aaron's writing is that he can put too many voices in one small scene and it can get too crowded. Other than that, one of the best writer out there.
