Looking forward to this. Should be fun.
Just read it.
Tons of fun and quite funny. This looks like a winner for all ages.
Idk if you give spoilers on a kid book or just highlight what you though made it good,but can someone do that? Thanks.
Dont mess with the "S"
Supes dialogue is occasionally a little too kid friendly to take him seriously at all, but screw it: giant robot fight!
Pull List; seems to be too long to fit in my sig...
forgot to pull it at my comic shop, so bought the digital...
SO FREAKING AWESOME!
Yeah, the dialogue is (understandably) a bit simple, the art is cartoony ...but so what? It was good,FUN for all ages.
Yes, kids and adults, comics don't all have to be gloomy, dark, and cynical, and try too hard to be "kewl". Sometimes comics can actually be whimsical, entertaining and just pure, mindless FUN!!!
I mean, where else are you going to see Superman stop an asteroid, fight robots, interact with a "Super Mouse" and play fetch with Lex Luthor in the same issue?
But yeah, this was great! For kids it's a great way to introduce them to comics. For us adults, there are so MANY elements of Superman mythology from all sorts of sources and versions here, and just a FUN angst free read that doesn't appologize for what it is.
Oh yeah, and the new SUPERMAN suit works in spades here. Like I have said the past 10 months, get rid of those damn useless lines and armor-ness and the costume would be pretty sweet.
It's amazing and sad that of the five Superman books/strips I follow, the three that capture the feel and and tone of classic Superman and present the kind of Superman that I most want to read best, are SUPERMAN BEYOND, SMALLVILLE and now SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES and NOT the "mainstream" ACTION and SUPERMAN. Not that I don't find the later two enjoyable, they still don't feel "authentic" to me. They feel like an enjoyable elseworlds that has some of those classic elements and tone...but not enough of it. They are indeed better than the stuff we have had the last three years, but still somehow misses the mark.
I can't remember the name of the writers of this book as I don't have access to the issue at this moment, but I get the vibe that he gets what makes for a classic and fun Superman story. I wonder if he/she has ever written any comics for an older readership? If they have, who else wouldn't mind them taking on the adventures of the mainstream Superman? If they could inject a drop of the fun and whimsy of this book into the mainstream Superman, and are allowed to do what they wanted without editorial interference, I think we would have a winner.
The picosecond I saw Lex Luthor scratching behind the ear, I knew we had a winner.
"'Kirby got a shitty contract too, so get over it' isn't a great tagline."
Anyway, I picked this up and liked it. I wasn't sure I would because it was by the same people who did Tiny Titans. I tried reading Tiny Titans and while it was cute, I also thought it was kind of boring. This book though, had a nice dose of action in it.
I picked this one up too and really enjoyed it. My nephew has a growing love of superheroes. So I bought a copy for him as an introduction to comics that he can read with his dad and collect on his own. After giving it a good read, I knew I made the right choice. It will be fun for both of them and a great intro to Superman for my nephew. So my hat is off to the crew who worked on this book. Very welldone.
For a young audience which this book is gearing to,the cousin,instead of clone,and same powers as superman,instead of TK makes sense,but calling him Con-el,instead of Kon-el,and using the yellow in the S shield instead of his black doesnt make sense,because that was already used in the tiny titans book.
I was just pointing out the differences,not really complaining,changes that make sense are not bad.
