PANELS OF THE WEEK 9/14/16

ACTION COMICS:  Who/What is Clark Kent?

Written by Dan ‘the Man’ Jurgens with art by Patrick Zircher.

Did Mystery Clark who showed up in Action 957 know new 52 Lois Lane?  We never saw them meet on panel.  We were promised new 52 Lois would be Superwoman.  That lasted one issue and then she was dust.  So is this a clone with neuro programming or is this the Real new 52 Superman without his powers?

The story Clark & Perry are talking about is last year’s DCYou storyline where Lois Lane was promoted as a betrayer of Superman’s dual identity.  New 52’s last nuclear blast at the Superman mythology.  And probably the reason for Rebirth.

Clark uses closing time as a distraction so he can enter GENETICRON.  With a name like that it must have to do with genetics and time.  Mystery CK seems to know new 52 Lois Lane pretty well.

I highly recommend BUYING Action Comics from 957 on.  Put it on your pull list. 

For history buffs, see if you can find this 4 part arc by Maggin & Bates in the classic section of your LCS.  It begins with Superman v1 #296.

Clark may be depowered while wearing the glasses but he has all the confidence of a super man.  He impresses Lois Lane & they have a dinner of beef bourguignon.  That’s right, it was in this arc where Lois and Clark’s code word for whoopie started.

NEW SUPER-MAN  Who is that wearing the S?

The Chinese Super-Man and his ‘Justice League’ counterparts are in as secret base under the sea.

Is this the real new 52 Superman?  Or is this a red herring?  We know Grant Morrison’s Action stories stayed in the first year of the new 52.  The other #1’s jumped 5 years ahead.  Dr. Omen in this story has dealt with genetics.  Superwoman (not Lois) book mentioned Lex & Lena’s prisons were experimenting on villains.  It just gets curiouser and curiouser.

WONDER WOMAN YEAR ONE: The Beauty of WonderTrev

Greg Rucka is writing Diana’s origins in this storyline drawn by Nicola Scott.

Looks like a lot of understanding to me on a whole lot of levels.

Did I mention the Amazons gave Steve his appendix back? Thanks, Nicola!

In Rucka’s other storyline, THE LIES, we see Diana and Steve in the present.  The mystery of the mugshot is now solved in Wonder Woman #6.  Trevor carries this picture with him through the heat of battle.  Liam Sharp is responsible for the beauty of Diana and Steve in The Lies storyline.

Highly recommend you BUYING Wonder Woman.  Both storylines and art are (insert most fabulous word you can think of).

TITAN COMICS:  DOCTOR WHO THE THIRD DOCTOR: Bessie & Oh Shit!!!  **SPOILERS**

Paul Cornell’s first issue came out this week.  Jon Pertwee was my first Doctor Who.  Still is.  Some of you may be watching his son, Sean, as Alfred on GOTHAM.  I also loved Pertwee’s car, Bessie.

There were actually a few “Oh Shits!” in this first issue.  My son’s favorite Doctor showed up.  But what made me squee  the most —

Oh yea.  THE Master. The REAL one. YES YES YES!!!

Highly recommend this series.  Cornell has written some of the best Doctor Who television episodes.  He is a master.

Hope everyone had a good comic book week.  Hope there was something in some book that made you feel and wanting more.

This Saturday at 5pm EDT on talkshoe .Tej and I will be doing our G2FACTOR HARDCORE podcast.  We do reviews of comic books and DC movie news.  This week we’ll be doing Action Comics 963, Wonder Woman #6 with some other mentions.  Our PSR this week will be Superwoman #2.  A PSR is a Public Service Review for those people who won’t read the comic for their own mental health but want to know what’s going on.  We supply that service.
