"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.


August 27, 2015: Is Howard Porter Replacing John Romita Jr on "Superman"?Print

Superman #45 According to BleedingCool.com, Howard Porter (Justice League 3001) is set to replace John Romita Jr. as the new ongoing artist on the "Superman" comic book title.

The report states that JRJr was offered a new project at DC Comics that was too hard to refuse.

    Despite some scurrilous rumor mongers, [John Romita Jr.] has not quit the title, rather he was offered a new project by DC Comics, something so enticing that he couldn't help but grab it with both hands.

No official announcement has been made by DC Comics at this point in time. We'll keep you posted as this story develops.


August 27, 2015: Another Superman Jersey Worn by Russell Crowe's RabbitohsPrint

The South Sydney Rabbitohs rugby league team in Australia (the team of which Russell Crowe is a co-owner), wore a new Superman jersey in last night's game against the Brisbane Broncos.

Rabbitohs Jersey

    Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's the Rabbitohs in the 2015 Superman jersey!

    The Rabbitohs ran out onto Allianz Stadium wearing the 2015 Superman Jersey last night against the Brisbane Broncos in Round 25 of the NRL Premiership. Unfortunately the Broncos came with Kryptonite and defeated the reigning Premiers convincingly.

    The famous 'S' symbol emblazoned on the front of the Jersey is the Kryptonian symbol for 'hope' and is synonymous with Superman and now, the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

    You can purchase your jersey online from 9.00am Friday 28 August EST through the Rabbitohs Online Megastore or in person at the Rabbitohs Merchandise Shop at Level 4, 265 Chalmers St Redfern. Open 9-5pm Monday to Friday and 11am-3pm on Saturday.

    With limited stock and sizes available, we encourage all Members and supporters to grab yours before they run out!

"Unwanted: Unliving or Undead"

Writer: Heath Corson
Penciller: Gustavo Duarte
Inker: Gustavo Duarte

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    It's the first story where the events weren't secondary to the humor and it's a pleasure to read. Both Bizarro and Jimmy do some clever moments, allowing for the joke-a-thon to be tolerable, and the overall tale is better for it. It does take a quarter of the issue to get there, but once in motion, Bizarro becomes more entertaining, and thereby, funnier. It's also a nice touch to include Jonah Hex through Chastity Hex being his descendent. It's probably one of the few times in the last four years that a book has shown a willingness to be connected to the legacy and history of DC Comics, albeit in such swift fashion. Still, doing so allowed a resolution to the problem presented in the narrative, that actually makes sense in terms of the world created for Bizarro and Jimmy. It's rare that giving a book a full go is a rewarding proposition, but after two issues that were head-bangers to get through, and a quarter more here, this installment was right on time and very rewarding for the patient reader.

Cover: Neil Googe with Rex Lokus

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    No one reads the classics anymore. It's a shame as the knowledge of reading and understanding such foundational literature is a great boon to writing, particularly with Western Literature. The Greek pantheon is at so much of the bedrock of what many find to be entertaining, it's amazing that they are reduced to the caricatures that parade around the pages of Injustice. These were the reality show television stars, well before the Kardashians entered anyone's living room. You enjoy complex characterization? Greek pantheon. Suspense and volatility? Greek pantheon. Epic storylines of never-ending proportions? Greek pantheon. The beginnings of the Injustice storyline borrows, if not flat out steals from Euripides' Heracles. Superman, in a fit of madness, kills his wife and child. Injustice isn't alone in that "theft" as what befell Heracles in myth and motivated him to expiation through his labors, has been used countless times across genres to do the same, but with less significant results. Ares is the less favored son and child of Zeus (that falls to Athena and Heracles, respectively), that much has remained canonical, but his monologue is pathetic. Ares isn't the mere god of war, Ares is war personified. War occurs because Ares' wills it. He is the aspect of the human psyche that craves and lusts for confrontation and conflict... like reality television. Ares's relating his experience and distilling into bullet points like a first year university student is beneath him. It's akin to someone giving a dissertation on the beauty of a strand of their hair. You're a god. You are realization of battle. To hear you moan through flashbacks about how bad your daddy was to you as a kid is beneath you. Such a waste.

August 26, 2015: "The Iron Giant" Returns to Theaters for 2 Days Only!Print

The Iron Giant While not officially a Superman movie, "The Iron Giant" is considered as such by many Superman fans, with the Man of Steel heavily inspiring the characters of the 1999 animated feature. And now, 16 years later, the Iron Giant is back in theaters for a very limited run.

In what's dubbed "The Iron Giant: Signature Edition," the sci-fi comedy-drama will be remastered and "enhanced" with two new scenes. It will be released through Fathom Events on September 30, with an encore in select markets on October 4.
