"Rogue Targets" - Part 3

Writer: Will Pfeifer
Penciller: Ricken
Inker: Ricken

Reviewed by: Keith Samra

    Just like last month, I realized whilst writing the synopsis, there wasn't much "meat" to this story!

    This was a filler story, which could have been told in 5 pages. But sadly with today's storytelling trends in comics, everything must be decompressed to the point that it resembles an episode of Dragon Ball Z. I apologize to any DBZ fans that read this review, but it was the DBZ was the only other property I know that was so very much decompressed in its storytelling.

    I really have nothing much to say, aside from the fact that this storyline seems to be going downhill fast. I don't really have a vested interest in this Manchester Black/Elite tale anymore, because I don't see the payoff anymore!

    Manchester is clearly up to something, and has a hidden agenda, but so far it's been pretty lackluster, so I'm not expecting anything fantastic to happen.

August 31, 2015: Students Dress in Superman T-Shirts to Honor TeenPrint

Superman Logo Jonathan Fluker became known to his friends as "Superman" when he was diagnosed with cancer in 2009. Last week the teenager lost his battle, but his friends and colleagues honored him by wearing Superman T-Shirts to Friday's football game.

    Fluker was just 11 years old when doctors discovered a peripheral nerve sheath tumor. But the Tennessee teen never let it be his kryptonite, eventually going on to play on the defensive line for Morristown West High School's beloved Trojans football team, friend Lyric McCaroll said.

    "He never stopped smiling and he never stopped putting a smile on my face. Even when I was full of negativity, he would reassure me that he was never going to leave me," the 17-year-old told CNN.

    "I said to him 'You're my Superman, you're always going to be my Superman because you have the strength to get through this. I know you'll keep fighting and you won't give up.'"

    The nickname caught on at school. Living up to the name, he wore a Superman T-shirt under his tuxedo to prom in 2014, attending in a motorized wheelchair thanks to a specially equipped van provided by the local Children's Hospital.

    The disease finally took Fluker's life on Aug. 24. To honor his memory, Morristown West High School students donned Superman shirts and costumes at Friday night's football game, filling the student section with a sea of blue.

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    After all the build up I share Clark's emotions at the end of the issue. Not with Lois Lane and her galactically stupid error in judgement - but with DC.

    You know all this chatter with Fox and Fantastic Four? i.e. "Give Them Back To Marvel!" I found myself thinking, ďGive Superman, Clark Kent & Lois Lane to a team who understands them!" I don't make the comment lightly either.

    Now that the reasons for 'Truth' are fully revealed, I as a Superman fan am thoroughly broken.

    The issue is a misstep and a padded out mess.

August 30, 2015: Mehcad Brooks Talks About Playing James Olsen on "Supergirl"Print

James Olsen In a recent interview with KryptonSite.com, Mehcad Brooks spoke briefly about playing James Olsen in the upcoming "Supergirl" TV series, his relationship with Lucy Lane, and Jimmy's Superman Signal Watch. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    In your version of James Olsen's past, did he have all of the gadgets like the Superman signal watch and all of that?

    We have the Superman watch. That is the first gadget we introduce... that's all I know right now. They don't tell me everything.

    Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) is coming on to the series. Can you talk about the history between her and your character?

    I can say this: Lucy Lane comes in as James' ex-fiancee, and that's about all I can say! I can't say a lot.

"Dark Truth" - Part Three: "A Matter of Trust"

Writer: Peter J. Tomasi
Penciller: Doug Mahnke
Inker: Jaime Mendoza and Sean Parsons

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    My biggest beef with the previous issue is that it was a lot of action with very little in the way of story progression. This issue was the exact opposite of that. In fact this book might very well be the best written of all four of the Superman related comics that are associated with this whole TRUTH thing.

    Top to bottom I enjoyed this issue. It was great seeing Superman stand up to Steve Trevor and I enjoyed his conversation with the President. Tomasi has laid out all of Superman's arguments nicely and really got into why Superman needed Clark Kent and why it isn't a big deal. More than anything I appreciated that Tomasi went out of his way to show that the opposition's arguments were flawed and faulty. There have been a number of times in the past ten years where a writer has someone tell Superman how dangerous he is or how stupid he is or basically criticize him and Big Blue just stands there and takes it. I liked seeing Superman "fight back". The cherry on top was how he kept cutting back to Wonder Woman interrogating Superman's friends with her lasso. I could argue the ethical merits of this but we haven't seen why she is doing it yet so I am going to wait until Tomasi explains her reasoning before weighing in on the issue though I am sure the comments section of this review will be full of people arguing about it.

August 27, 2015: Henry Cavill Talks About "Superhero Fatigue"Print

Batman v Superman While comic book fans feel lucky to be living in an era of so many superhero movies, there's a suggestion amongst critics that the plethora of comic book based movies is leading to "Superhero Fatigue" amongst the general populace.

In an interview with Judao during their press junket to promote "The Man from UNCLE" in Brazil this past week, Henry Cavill and his co-star Armie Hammer spoke about "Superhero Fatigue", while also joking about how annoying Batman fans are.
