Action Comics (2016) #987

Sep 13, 2017

The book ends leaving the reader with great anticipation for the story to unfold. Oz comes out of the flames confronting Superman that he should have known better, These people dont deserve you. Oz transports them to the Fortress of Solitude so that they can talk. Superman charges Oz with being responsible for the chaos and evil. Oz states that he simply presented the people with options and they chose evil and mayhem. (SPOILER ALERT!) Oz reveals himself as Supermans Father. Oz tells him briefly about his escape and then reinforces his belief that he sent Kal-El to the wrong place. The book ends with Oz saying, I am Jor-El The story is emotionally satisfying, its rooted in real-life dilemmas while still feeling like a Superman story. The art is beautiful and the cliffhanger at the end was awesome!

Flash (2016) #30

Sep 13, 2017

The art is gorgeous and the story is emotionally meaningful. The story expresses themes of loss, grief, and recovery throughout. Kristens recovery from the loss of her family, her sharing her story with Barry seemed to empower him and give meaning to the story. Similarly, Ramseys story of overcoming a significant health diagnosis to let Flash know that hes aware of the Flashs most recent damaging effects on Central City is equally impactful. The book ends with a cliffhanger as Flash faces off against Bloodwork in Central City. I am excited to see how Flash overcomes his guilt and learns how to use his new power set to defeat Bloodwork!

Superman (2016) #27

Jul 19, 2017

In this issue, the Kent family takes a vacation from superhero work while identifying the true heroes and the values that motivated them. While the book surfaces many important issues facing our treatment of war veterans and those who've made sacrifices it misses the mark in other ways.

Superman (2016) #30

Sep 6, 2017

The conflict in the story involves Parallax, Superman, and Sinestro. However, Superman correctly identifies fear as the greatest enemy for everyone. Superman uses his courage and willingness to show compassion, even towards his enemies, as a springboard to speak out against letting fear rule. The story comes full circle as Superman watches his son, Jon, sleeping safely in his bed. Ultimately, the story felt detached from whats been happening in this book since Rebirth which limited its impactfulness. The art was beautiful and the story involved, historically, three very interesting characters. The overall message, to make choices daily to overcome our fears, is an important one in our day and time.
