Action Comics #1013 review

Every page a little pleasure. That seems to be Brian Michael Bendis’ motto for Action Comics. We get the ongoing big story (Leviathan) and the company crossover interruptions (Year of the Villain), but along the way are gems of dialogue and detail. The first scene in this week’s issue, courtesy of the Year of the […]

Naomi #2 review

In which our heroine asks mysterious mechanic Dee how he knows the date of her adoption and what else he knows. That, as they say, went well. Later, she tackles her parents. Not much there either. Which pretty much sums up this issue, which is a classic example of the type of decompression I thought […]

Naomi #1 review

Naomi lives in a small town in North America. One day Superman ‘passes through’. While pretty much everyone she knows catches a glimpse of the battle between the Man of Steel and alien dictator Mongul, Naomi somehow misses it. We don’t see the conclusion of the fight, but we do see the reactions of the […]
