COMICS REVIEWS: ACTION COMICS # 30

Author:  Greg Pak

Pencils:  Aaron Kuder & Jeb Dougherty

Reviewed by: kimmiecoo

 image

Action Comics #30 had a lot to accomplish – revealing the true villain of the story, wrapping up a story arc, linking together events occurring in other books to the villain in this book, laying the groundwork for the next story and last but not least continuing the main character’s growth. Fortunately it landed in the capable hands of Greg Pak to tackle this daunting task. With a lesser writer the issue could have easily fallen apart in trying to juggle all these balls.  

 Greg Pak continues to bring the character exploration of our greatest superhero. While Superman is involved in amazing action sequences throughout Action, it is the study of Clark/Superman that is front and center in Pak’s Action run. It is the beating heart of this Superman book.

 We are given some wonderful insight to Clark/Superman through his shared childhood memories with Lana but it is through Clark’s thought boxes where the reader really gets to see who Superman is – a man who can perform extraordinary feats because of his Kryptonian (or in the new 52’s terms alien) genes however beneath the billowing red cape, the Kryptonian blue armor, the House of El shield, is a man who feels deeply, is always thinking, uses the lessons taught to him by Jonathan and Martha Kent to guide his actions, conscious of the consequences of his actions and believes that one will do right in the end despite having just fought against him like Sawyer, the Ghost Soldier or Harrow, the necromancer, who had just raised an huge army of made up of soldiers who lost their lives in wars gone by to battle Superman.

 Harrow, the Ghost Soldier’s commander and who is also apparently responsible for an attack on Wonder Women in the Superman/Wonder Woman book, is an interesting “villain”. I would say Harrow can be less categorized as the typical supervillain and categorized more as an adversary, an adversary of ideals/ideology. She and by extension her subordinates or ghost soldiers technically fight on the same side as Superman which he points out after Harrow’s defeat. Superman asks why must they fight each other when they both are “fighting the big fight” to save humans but where Harrow’s ideals differ from Superman’s is she is fighting to “save” humans and only humans while Superman is fighting to save everyone and everything, whether it be humans or butterflies or otherwordly lemur-monkeys and it is because of him choosing to save all beings and not just focus on saving humans, she accuses Superman of not being able to make the hard decisions. Superman does make the hard decisions. It is just his “priorities” differ from Harrow’s as evidenced by both Superman and Sawyer’s actions throughout this story arc.

 Unfortunately because Pak had to introduce Doomsday for the upcoming Doomed crossover event, the five pages devoted to its introduction I feel shortchanged Harrow and most especially her motivations. Hopefully we will get this exploration when she returns.  From what it seems Harrow will be a recurring opponent judging by her final words and it also seems we have not seen the last of Sawyer since it has been solicited that the Ghost Soldier will be appearing in Action #31 during the Doomed crossover event.

 Aaron Kuder is still doing an amazing job with the art. Even just seeing the silhouette of the Clark/Baka hug made me tear up.  Aaron did have some help with the art by Jeb Dougherty. His style is sleeker compared to Aaron’s but the two styles blended well. 

 Overall a solid ending to Greg & Aaron’s first arc in Action. Though, as I said earlier, I felt the big bad in Harrow and the Tower lost some of its bite because of Greg having to set up the upcoming crossover event that will be taking over Action and Superman/Wonder Woman for the foreseeable future. However, Clark’s character development and character exploration did not get sacrificed and I truly hope, and so far Greg has not let me down, we continue to see the exploration of Clark/Superman’s character development in Action despite the big event.

COMICS REVIEWS: SMALLVILLE LANTERN CHAPTERS 4-6

Author:  Bryan Q. Miller

Pencils:  Marcio Takara

Reviewed by: kimmiecoo

 

After the “title credits and commercial break” (which is how these “breaks” in the digital issues feel) we return to the Fortress of Solitude with Clark and John and Clark learning how to control his Green Lantern ring. Throughout Lantern Chapters 4-6 and in particular the panels of Clark and John at the Fortress in Chapter 4, Bryan does a wonderful job of balancing the old with the new. Not only does Bryan further introduce a new character and the history the character brings with him to the Smallville audience but he also seamlessly integrates callbacks to the TV show to emphasize character moments in the current story, an element that he does flawlessly in all his “episodes”.

 A prime example of this is when John tells Clark not to let his frustration get the better of him and Clark tells John that his words of advice sounds familiar. I loved the visual callback to a younger Clark getting a handle on his emerging superpowers with the help of Jonathan and Martha Kent and Kara.  But for me, the callback that I love the most occurred when Clark informed John that he is not overly fond of “destiny” talk being handed down by distant omniscient third parties without any question or free will to choose one’s path. For those who watched Smallville for the ten years it was on television, we all know how much Clark struggled with his predetermined future and the omniscient, omnipotent AI Jor-El’s talk of destiny for the last son of Krypton. These were great applications of interweaving the TV show of the past with the current Smallville comic.

 These three chapters do not only focus on Clark and John, the Green Lantern history (we do get some nice shout-outs to other Green Lanterns like Kilowog and the superpet, Ch’p) and the impending big bad of Parallax but Bryan also continues to build on what we saw in the first three chapters - Lex recognizing the Green Lantern ring which leads him to the Justice League of America’s Brownstone (spotlighted in Season 9’s “Absolute Justice”) and Ma Hunkel as well as the continuing adventures of Oliver Queen trying to find his place in the expanding superhero world now that he and Chloe have supposedly sworn off all superhero duties until baby Queen is born.

 Unfortunately Oliver is finding himself a bit bored and useless in this new domestic life and it is further exacerbated with Batman, Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor and now John Stewart/Green Lantern’s presence in the Smallville universe. Oliver is finding himself not needed quite as much and between Maggie Sawyer and Dan Turpin of the Metropolis PD and DEO Agent Carter’s snarky comments, he is not even getting as much respect so we find in this chapter Oliver attempting to tackle Green Arrow’s diminishing presence by investigating the robbery that Clark had stopped in Chapter 2 and in particular inviting himself to accompany the DEO on a scouting mission.   

 Needless to say the humorous moments continue. The humor is the finishing touch that make these episodes so great. Between the “flirty” moments between Steve and Diana or the snarky comments directed at Oliver or the image of Tess being the midwife at baby Queen’s birth is all on point and what truly sets the Smallville comic apart from the main continuity comics.

 Marcio Takara continues to do a wonderful job on the art. I want to say he did an amazing job with the flashback sequence in Lantern #4. He perfectly rendered those particular moments of when Clark was learning how to control his emerging Kryptonian powers so that we the readers were able to recall each scene from the TV show.

 I am calling myself out on an egregious error I made in my previous Smallville reviews. I inadvertently did not comment on the amazing covers drawn and colored by Cat Staggs. Her covers on the Smallville comics have been flawless.  While the artists tasked with the interior art draw the characters with resemblances to the actors, Cat’s covers are spot on with the actors’ likenesses. At times it is almost like looking at a photograph. There is no question who you are seeing when you view Cat’s Smallville covers.

 Lantern Chapters #4-6 did a great job in further setting up the “episode”, handling character moments, history, exposition perfectly while throwing in the fun moments to make the chapters well-rounded and complete. As always when I finish each digital issue, I cry that they are too short but that only means that the story is compelling and the writing is excellent.

EXCLUSIVE: LUCKY FAN MEETS HENRY CAVILL AND GINA CARANO ON THE MAGNIFICENT MILE!
Tammy Sanchez met Henry Cavill and Gina Carano yesterday afternoon in Downtown, Chicago! We know all of Henry’s fans (and Gina’s fans) are dying for details and Tammy was gracious enough to give those details exclusively to Henry Cavill Online!   Tammy has been a fan of Henry and Gina’s for quite some time so when she heard that they were in Chicago last weekend, she was eager to try and meet them. She was in Downtown, Chicago yesterday afternoon when she read a tweet from some one who just walked by Henry on Michigan Ave. According to Tammy, she was heading south on Michigan Ave. when she spotted Henry and Gina casually strolling down the Magnificent Mile taking in the sights. She eventually caught up to them and this is what she told us about her encounter:  I said, “Excuse me, guys?” That’s when Henry turned around and said, “Yes?” As Gina turned around I asked, “Henry? Gina?” and they exclaimed, “Yes!” with a smile. I had to take a brief moment to compose myself before I told them that I was a huge fan of both of them. They thanked me and said that was really nice. I told Gina I saw her movie In The Blood last week and that she was wonderful in it. She smiled and thanked me. I apologized for bothering them and asked if I could have my pictures taken with them and Henry said, “Yes! Of course we would love to!” and Gina said, “Absolutely.” I got the camera ready on my phone and gave it to Henry before I hugged Gina. She hugged me back while Henry snapped the photo. After the photo was taken, I gave Gina another big hug before Henry handed my phone to her. I stood next to Henry and squeezed him a little while Gina took the photo. I told them both that I loved them very much and I think they’re wonderful. Gina said I was very sweet and Henry thanked me. I asked why they were in Chicago. Henry said, “We’re here just for enjoyment.” I told him I know he is filming the Man of Steel sequel in Michigan and he said, “Yes, we are filming it right now up in Detroit.” I turned to Gina and asked her if this was her first time in Chicago. She said it was not and that she has been here before a couple of times. She then asked, “What about you?” So I told them I was born and raised here. Henry then said, “Well it’s a lovely, lovely city.” I told them that I was glad and they are hanging out in one of the best areas. I didn’t want to take up any more of their time (I’m totally lying I would have loved to talk to them all day but I did interrupt their vacation after all) so I wrapped up the conversation by thanking them again and that’s when Henry put out his hand, cocked his head, bent over a little, grinned and said, “Well it was a pleasure meeting you.”  I shook his hand, then Gina’s as she said, “It is a pleasure meeting you.” And I said the same and told them that I hope they enjoy the rest of their stay here. They thanked me and we said our goodbyes.  It was a short encounter but very sweet. Although I interrupted their afternoon stroll they were not in the least bit annoyed. They were warm, welcoming and very relaxed while talking to me. They are two beautiful people inside and out and I am truly honored to have met them. It was AMAZING! (P.S. They looked like they were having a great time. Very comfortable, stress fee and HAPPY. God bless them) We are very happy to know that Henry was able to take some time off from work to enjoy the sights of Chicago since he was not able to while he filmed Man of Steel.   A big thank you to Tammy Sanchez for sharing her photos and her story with us!
