Maybe they should ve made Geoff Johns do this series, because the Batman Earth One series is among my favorite graphic novels ever This story arc of Superman was not bad just to be clear, but nothing was interesting on the other hand Forgettable at best.Actually the whole thing felt a bit rushed It s like Stracyznski didn t give Superman the proper introduction that he deserved I m not a huge Superman fan, but I m not among the haters I don t think I ve ever read a Superman graphic novel, or eve [...]

the art is gorgeous a vivid palette, expert linework, by turns visceral and delicate, super stylish overall but for some reason, Shane Davis gives us a short, slender, eerie, vaguely asian Superman the writing is smart, the pacing works well, the ideas are compelling, the mysteries are intriguing but J Michael Straczynski gets it all wrong too this is not Superman and it is also not Earth One but I m not going to go there in this review many years back, Mark Gruenwald s ingenious Squadron Suprem [...]

I haven t read a lot of Superman comic books so I can t really compare this to anything, aside from the movie adaptations that is But I absolutely love how they showed this side of Superman Superman, for me, was unstoppable force He was the person we all would never be He is strong Has superhuman strength Is also super smart What else is there What can this guy want He was basically a god But of course, that wasn t all this was Kal el has a lot of weaknesses And this story actually showed us th [...]

Ugh I really wanted to like this I love Michael Straczynski s stuff Usually Unfortunately, the only thing I really liked about Earth One was Shane Davis artwork I thought he did an awesome job updating Clark s looks He was actually quite a hottie Unfortunately, at the end when Clark put on the familiar costume, he ended up looking a bit like a boy playing dress up He seemed too short or something to be Superman Sort of like they cast Tom Cruise to play The Man of Steel Urp retching noises, toile [...]

I may be a fan of stracynski because I really enjoyed this Superman used to be my favourite hero and he s been written over and over so badly so many times Each time they try and make him human to relate to the reader because stupid batman fans keep saying he s too strong or he s unrealistic fools He s an alien and I love that he s really fucking strong and I love what he stands for So stracynski writes him as a superior here Another origin story Another one However, this one was decent Superma [...]

This is a focus on Super Boy right after he leaves to find himself at Metropolis He has a lot of options with his knowledge and isn t really interested in being any type of superhero However, cataclysmic circumstances force him to become one and that really isn t much of a surprise so not a spoiler, people.The story had its moment but it was a bit too predictable for my tastes and didn t have any interesting small moments The artwork was absolutely beautiful and primarily done by Shane Davis The [...]

The synopsis says it all Superman doesn t know who he is, and that s because he s nobody but a surface version of his Golden Age self Football star, scientist, baseball player Which will he choose All to buy Martha Kent a new Cadillac He moves to the city to, I don t know, mope, creep on girls in diners, and jump into any career he wants to with only a two year degree That s the Superman I know and love The aliens attack the world trope has become so tiresome, sudden belligerent aliens doling ou [...]

This felt very much like the Man of Steel movie That isn t really a good thing I get that this Earth One books are supposed to be new, fresh takes on the origin stories of familiar heroes, but this one just felt off to me And there are plenty of aspects of the story that don t make much sense Since when is Clark enough of a genius that he can effortlessly solve equations that trained and experienced scientists have been struggling with for years Did it never occur to Clark that putting in a lite [...]

I love Superman as much as anyone and hey I m open to new versions of the character, so if a new Superman origin story has to happen in today s world with a twentyish Clark Kent moving out of small town Smallville to big town Metropolis, I ll go along for the ride What people said to me about it was that this was an emo Superman but I didn t see that here Sure Clark is 20 and wears a hoodie but so what That doesn t make him emo.No, what made me dislike this book was how booooring the story was R [...]

Don t listen to the reviews on this one It s not terrible From what I d gathered, Straczynski and crew presented some emo modernistic version of Superman with anger problems There s nothing of the sort Deep down there s not much different about our beloved Man of Steel The changes to character and the origin story itself is very minor, with one significant change, which I enjoyed to tell the truth Clark Kent is newly arrived in Metropolis and looking for a job a means to strike it out on his own [...]

Superman, the original and seminal superhero, has undergone a lot of reboots ever since he leaped off the pages of Action Comics number one in 1938 It is understandable that he needs to be re imagined every time a new generation of comic book readers comes of age Especially, the generation whose first exposure of the character came from the television show Smallville.This project to revitalize the character had a lot going for it It had a capable writer and artist team with proven track records [...]

Yes this is fresh, a very modern telling of the Superman origin story and yet it doesn t feel forced , doesn t feel like you re reading or seeing things that were rammed into the story to make you think yes, I see they took great pains to update the story look at the cell phones Look at how we finally drop the stupid planet exploding for no reason Instead this is a very well crafted story JMS really has the craft of storytelling down, and he makes it clear it s about telling a great, cohesive st [...]

I love all the story of the young Clark arriving to Metropolis and looking for what to do with his life However the climax, it was good but not exactly what I would expect, also they include some elements changing the reason of how Krypton exploded and that affected how people could look the staying of Superman on Earh in a whole different way Not that I don t find creative but it wouldn t be as I would so thrilled about it Still, it s a very good book recommended to any Superman fan.

A baby is sent to Earth from his dying home planet, Krypton Years later, the baby is now a young adult named Clark and moves from Kansas to Metropolis, searching for a way to fit in He inadvertently triggers a series of events that brings an associate of his former world s destroyers to Earth, committed to hunting down the last survivor of Krypton.It feels like the film Man of Steel was largely based on this, with the film s Zod taking the place of the verbose alien hunter Tyrell Man of Steel wa [...]

Bullet Review I m not the biggest Superman fan in the world, but I ve seen the original movie, Man of Steel , and Smallville and am familiar with the basic storyline The two biggest reason I read this were A I had recently seen Man of Steel and heard this comic was used as inspiration for the movie I can totally see the similiarities , and B I ve been on a comic book kick lately and really wanted to find a good entry point into possibly reading Superman The biggest problem to a newbie to these 5 [...]

I ve read most of JMS comic work, both DC and Marvel so I had some expectations, and to me this was meh Superman s origin has been tweaked a few times over the years and this does the same mainly by adjusting why Kal El was sent to Earth JMS gives a deeper meaning for his arrival, the reason for Superman s first conflict, and lays the groundwork for future stories all in one fell swoop.There s also quite a bit discussion between Clark and his parents regarding who he is, what he should be doing [...]

I haven t watched the movie yet,but I can say from the trailer if that movie was based on a graphic novel this would be it, just remove Tyrel and add Zodd, the same everything else appear here, the whole wandering around trying to figure out what to do after school, trying everything from a football player to a scientist maybe this note bother me but O.K , to the invasion of alien race to find only him and the world message that broadcast all over the world with unclear image and sound as everyo [...]

This review also covers Superman Earth One, Vol 2 I am still searching for a story about Superman that will make me like him, that will make his acceptance into society make sense Based on the fact that several origin stories, along with two questionable movies, have popped up over the past decade or so that find alternate ways to give me this, I suspect that DC and its writers are still trying to figure that out as well.You see, the reason why I don t like him is because my thinking falls in li [...]

Straczynski, whom I first read when he wrote some superb Thor graphic novels, re tells the Superman origin story in Superman Earth One It is very similar to what we know, with some subtle differences In this telling, apparently a young Superman in his early 20 s moves to Metropolis for the first time to provide for his Ma Kent Pa Kent has apparently passed away and Clark is looking for a job to provide for his mother Now, in this storyline he already knows his powers, but not where he is from Hi [...]

Originally posted at PINOYPETERPAN.If you would ask a group of kids who s their favorite superhero, I know that than one would say Superman He s an icon No need for further introduction, just Superman would suffice because everybody knows he is the Man of Tomorrow But still, knowing how he looks like, the symbol, or the red and blue costume does not justify why he had been loved and still is by people DC was right on their decision to make a re imagining of Superman.A different take on the char [...]

Let s be totally clear here I am a HUGE Superman nerd I ll read watch anything with that shield on it So when DC came out with a new graphic novel written by J Michael Straczynski that let him start over from scratch, I was all over it.This book is essentially an origin story And in that respect, it s not bad Straczynski picks and chooses from various depictions of Superman that we ve all seen before You ll recognize events from the comics and the Richard Donner movies here, but it s all done wi [...]

Great artwork from Shane Davis Straynski s story is entertaining, and I know this is yet again an attempt to retell the Superman origin However, this modernized Clark Kent, a twenty year old existentialist navel gazing emo brat complete with the hairdo , doesn t really fit with the Superman mythos And implying that he s a super genius he discovers a formula for extracting electricity from water molecules in about five seconds strikes me as an unnecessary superpower Sure, Superman s got brains to [...]

This was between 3 4 stars for me, really I liked many things about it, but some of it was kinda emo for my tastes I mean, I like depth in comics, it s so hard to accomplish, but I guess it s pretty hard to humanize a character that is, by definition, closed off from everyone Superman is unto himself, and since he had no real deep relationships in this book besides his mother, it was hard to root for him There were some cool parts, and the art was great though Would recommend the read

I got this because JMS is a hero of mine When Babylon 5 JMS masterpiece, IMO began in 1994, JMS started a forum on CompuServ which I was on He was the first celebrity I d ever interacted with online He still actively interacts with his fans through a variety of forums An amazing, creative man.I grew up with Golden and Silver age Superman and Superboy, so this book was a bit of an eye opener, being the 1st modern Superman I ve read I can t honestly say I like the modern take on Superman s mythos, [...]

There are a lot of reboot origin stories of well known superheroes both in the Marvel and DC camp Some are faithful to the canon, some veer way off Superman Earth One is somewhere in between.The premise The first part deals with a young Clark Kent looking for a joblooking for his identity My place in this world crap it s not the central theme that s crappy, it s how it developed that was Somehow after all these superhero remakes both in comics and the movies, you begin to realize that most story [...]

Too vague, too fuzzy, too cute Having been around for over seventy five years, the origin story of Superman has always been revisited, with writers and artists providing their own revision to the point that everyone has their own idea of what the Man of Steel should be Following terrific reinterpretations such as Mark Waid s Birthright and Geoff Johns Secret Origin, Superman Earth One by J Michael Straczynski and illustrated by Shane Davis was the inaugural title of the new, ongoing OGN series E [...]
