Action Comics #1 0

By The Angry Comic Book Critic  Up in the Sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's the biggest waste of money in history! Okay now I know this issue is one of the most well known books in the history of comics but at the same time it's a colossal waste of money to anyone who buys it if you own it already through family heir loom props to you your rich. Sure Action Comics #1 will grow in value as time goes on but as far story telling for this classic goes it's rather mediocre. Hell it starts off in t...

Action Comics #1 0

I was never a huge fan of Superman. I did own a Superman doll as a child that I lost in the waters at the beach (my mom told me he went to Superland). Reading Action Comics now feels less like escaping into fantasy and more like I'm gleaning some sort of sociological understanding of one of the most enduring icons of American popular culture.   I read this issue trying to understand both what made initially Superman popular and why his popularity has endured. I understand the appeal to kids in 1...

Lets start at the begining 0

Fist meeting ever Let us face facts.  Just about every single one of us read comics because of this issue.  Superman started it all.  He may not have been the first or perhaps even the best.  What cannot be argued is the impact this book had on the comic world.  This issue however is not a Superman book alone.  I have read three reviews on this book and all three only mention the Superman story.  The thing is that Superman my be on the cover but there are eleven features in this book.  Superman ...

BUT....No, it's not worth several million dollars.The CoverSuperman smashing a car on a rock and people running away from him... nothing to hate about it, but, then again, nothing to like about it.The StoryStory? Theres a story in this thing? I guess it's kind of a story... NOT. A one-page origin of Superman. Superman saves a life. Superman defeats these guys who capture Lois Lane or something. Superman overhears...

The Beginnings of Greatness 0

This review was published in my School NewspaperSo far, we’ve mostly looked at current comics, comics that you can probably find at your local comic book store today. However, we’ve only begun to scrape the surface of the vast and incredible history of comic books and superhero mythology, so this week, we’re going all the way back to where it all started, with Action Comics, and the first ever appearance of Superman.Background:I shouldn’t even have to tell you the history of Superman. Everyone k...

A Superman than Doesn't Give a Crap 3

Action Comics #1. The comic book that started it all. That started to move the comic book world from recycled comic strips and new comic strips to a world of superheroes. It is the first appearance of Superman, Lois Lane, and quite possibly Perry White. Superman and Lois Lane though especially. This book is the start of a brand new DC Universe in a way and signaled the beginning of Golden Age of Comics. So how did this book go? Great!Seeing that I am reading this through The Superman Chronicles...
