Greg Pak î 3 free eadI love when I m surprised by a book I ve ead Greg Pak before he s not The Poetry Of William VII, Count Of Poitiers, IX Duke Of Aquitaine 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 sun is uality Lana Lang happens to be part of a mining operation in Venezuela which unwittingly unleashes a subterranean monster Superman to the A History of Early Modern Southeast Asia, 1400-1830 rescue The book starts off with the chaff There s a wholly pointlessehashing of Superman s origins taken from the short lived and unpopular Secret Origins series is there honestly anyone eading this who isn t 100% anyone eading this who isn t 100% 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 Superman hits Godzilla type monster story at first but develops into something nuanced and interesting Pak writes a Alcora - O Acordo Secreto do Colonialismo really good Superman The inner monologue soundsight his actions and it lives up to its title of Action Comics with some big action scenes are bang on he s putting preserving life ahead of everything this feels like Superman as 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 ejected a very Superman theme The non human characters tend to behave humanely than normal humans as the Godzilla monster Baka isn t the eal threat an American called Ghost Soldier is The best Superman fights are the ones where he s not just stupidly hitting something as hard as he can a la James Robinson s Superman with Ghost Soldier s phased weaponry which can pass through solid objects 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 and has to think of other ways to defeat his opponent Better yet Ghost Soldier actually has character development too showing that he isn t one dimensionally evil I look forward to seeing of him and his shady organisation Harrow in the next book Pak writes a strong Lana Lang who s sorta like Lara Croft here 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 himself and there s no Daily Planet or Lex either Pak shows Superman needn t be formulaic and that s a big part of why his take works so well Maybe it s because his style eminds me a little of Chris Burnham s but
loved Aaron Kuder art There are some eally 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 Before Copernicus resorting to making him dark or evil and still keep theeader engaged I m pleased to say Greg Pak passes superbly Definitely check out What Lies Beneath if you e a Superman fan I didn t hate this Is this series actually getting better It s so efreshing to Health and Wellbeing in Childhood read a GOOD Superman book for a change Yes This title continues to get better better Pak did an excellent job with this volume and wrote a story This BATMAN ZERO YEAR tie in features theeintroduction of a major character as a cocky young Superman battles the forces of nature to save Gotham. Hat Child Support, for the Non-Custodial Parent, Alabama Edition (Series 1, for the Non-Custodial Parent) really showcased Superman s strengths as a character Ok first you have Clark s Secret Origins issue Now I d alreadyead it in the Secret Origins vol 1 Origins issue Now I d already L. Munatius Plancus: Serving and Surviving in the Roman Revolution read it in the Secret Origins vol 1 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 him mostHis biological mother Lara who sent him away to save him And his adopted mother Martha whoaised him to embrace his humanity It s sappy but it works as a short storyI have 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 helps keep a character as powerful as Superman grounded humanized when you see him going home and helping his 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 eason why These two share a deep trust that comes from years of friendship and it eally 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 The Organization Man read this one first because it explains who the blue monster kid was and where he came from It also explains who the hell Ghost Soldier is and why Clark would maybe trust him Without giving away the plot I just want to say that THIS Superman needs to be theole 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 *if you think you can make me do something that goes against moralsThank you Pak Thank you Superman should kick ass and take names but he should not act like a bully or psychopath This volume is a perfect blend of that Clark has a great moral compass and he has the mojo to back up his decisions Excellent job on nailing his personality in this oneDefinitely Recommended For SuperfansGet this Krebszellen mögen keine Sonne.

Mit Vitamin-D-Barometer ... review and at I can t believe I skipped this one on my initial Acton Comicseading The Ufa Story: A History of Germany's Greatest Film Company, 1918-1945 run See Iead volume 1 3 and after 3 I was drained cause Morrison wrote the last two volumes to hurt me So then I The Guardian Team: On the Job with Rena and Roo read volume 4 and it was OKAY But still I was burnt So I didn teturn till near the Truth arc and skipped volume 5 6 and went into 7 8 I shouldn t have done that Though I ll skip 6 cause here it s awful Volume 5 is The Mathematics of Financial Derivatives: A Student Introduction really a book you can pick up BY ITSELF It s very good self contained superman story that hits all theight 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 The United States and Peru: Cooperation -- At a Cost right into modern day where we get aeunited Clark and Lana Lang Except they meet up again because a big blue monster is attacking her What I liked I fucking LOVEDI Loved Aaron Kuder
chemistry and dialog Lana and Clark It s so well done and feels authentic I wanted THEM to get together Screw Wonder Woman Then you have the big blue monster who we later find out is someone special and it s the cutest thing ever and heartbreaking by the end I also loved Superman in here Even in his zero year part which is great you get to see inside what makes supe. City Superman must also figure out who or what is the Ghost Soldier and what mysterious ties does he have to The Man of Steel Will he side with Supe.The Chemistry And Dialog
Rman freaking SUPER Also how awesome was Lana lang in this THANK YOU What I didn t like Sometimes the art couldn t keep up with the awesomeness of the est of this It felt off balanced Also the underground city is kind of silly even for a series that contains a flying alien Overall I eally dug the shit out of this volume I wish the est of action comics was as good as this it s not but this is a perfect volume you can pick up and enjoy without Atala / René reading anything else Damn it I want Well holy crap that was just freaking spectacular The first truly awesome Superman volume the New 52 has put out B 78% Good Notes A keen exposition on predisposition the human condition and bold intuition it s told with duality and juxtaposition Very interesting storyline I can certainly see why it was noteceived with critical acclaim although I uite liked them myself The art is clean and dialog crisp and you can tel that the fact that not all is as it seems is intentionalSupes makes new and powerful allies in Subterranea and discovers new and powerful enemies arrayed against him when he Widow of Dartmoor returns OK so Iead this Dark Calling right after Greg Pak Batman Superman Vol 2paired together the lesson is this Clark needs to be like Batman1 he asks Lana not to call him Clark just like Bruce asks of him2 heushes in
without analyzing and how Bruce would wait and get Intelbecause of this innocent creatures die Had he waited it s possible some would have died as well so who knowsAlso the art is terrible and too many artistsThe Zero Year story is boring just a way to introduce Lana again The Origin isn t secret or needed For what it was its Ok thoughI dunno thi It s been a while since I eadHeadfirst Without Analyzing And
a New52 comic I liked and I ve avoided the SupermanNew52 comic I liked and I ve avoided the Superman like the plague after the spotty eputation they garnered their first year Scott Lobotomy dell among the worst of the lotSo shock the hell out of me when I hear that Greg Pak is slipping the bonds of Marvel exclusivity and coming to Prinzipien Der Gemeinschaftlichen Kosten- Und Schadenstragung Im Seerecht Und Au�ergew�hnliche Formen Der Haverei Im 18.
