    The conclusion to the first arc!

    ACTION COMICS #8



    Written by GRANT MORRISON
    Art by RAGS MORALES and RICK BRYANT


    It’s the epic 30-page conclusion of Grant Morrison and Rags Morales’ majestic opening storyline! $3.99 gets you front row seats to the ascension of the DC Universe’s first Super Hero as The Man of Steel goes toe to tentacle with the all-new Brainiac for the final fate of Metropolis!

    A nice conclusion to the first story. I found they artist they used to help Morales finish the issue was actually pretty good even though his art really didn't match at all. I find it interesting how different the armored look Superman has differs from artist to artist. Some like to downplay it and others really go out with it and we kind of saw that here. The suit looked really different between the both artists. I am really interested to see what the next issue will be like. I like how DC seems to have given Morrison a lot of freedom on this book.

    A nice fun one-off about the Superman of a different world. I hope they do the odd story like this here and there. It is fun to see alternate takes on some of the big heroes. I am looking forward to the three-parter that starts next month. But as much as I am enjoying these I might transition over to trades for this title soon. I have been enjoying Action but it hasn't really grabbed me like I hoped. Morrison is doing good stuff on here but it seems like it could be better.

    it only took about a year, but morrison finally wrote an issue i felt was way beyond "mediocre". i've been unimpressed with his run since day one. the man wrote all star superman for crying out loud, can we get something even a little bit as amazing in this action comics run?

    Per this month's issue #10, it looks like Susie Tompkins is now back in continuity as Lois' niece (or "step-niece" as Lois notes). Gather this means Lucy Lane is married in the "New 52" (like she was on the original Earth-Two), or Lois has a yet-to-be-introduced newly-created second sibling (I wouldn't put *that* past DC)?

    In the Golden Age comics, Susie was Lois' niece, and whose shtick was getting into trouble telling various fibs/tall tales. Susie appeared again in the "Mr. and Mrs. Superman" stories of the 70s, but to my knowledge hasn't appeared or been mentioned since, specially with Lucy Lane established since her late 50s debut as single or attached to men who weren't a "Mr. Tompkins." An Earth-Two married Lucy Lane Tompkins was introduced in the "Mr. and Mrs. Superman" stories to explain Susie's parentage/relation to Lois.

    Filling in some of the five-year gap? I'm there!

    Interesting to see the Kryptonite Man in these comics. It's a nice design, actually. I'm glad to see Cully Hamner get more work. I was always a fan of his artwork.
