American Son: Should I Pick It Up?


   Following Siege, H.A.M.M.E.R. Tech must now be confiscated but certain items have been taken. Now with Harry's father recently fired and the suit shown in the media, Harry has agents watching him and no friends to turn to. 

The Good:

   If you have not been following all of Siege and only picked up the 4 main issues, this book really gives you a nice intro to who is American Son and why he is relevant. Reading the book you really get a good sense of how Harry is effected by his "Crazy Sause"  faced father and the friends around him. Another good was the art. You can really see and feel Harry's emotions pour out as people are either giving him symphony or making him upset.

The Bad:

   There was no really no bad that could leave you unsatisfied. Plus there is a good cliff hanger end that gives you a reason to pick up #2.

Verdict: 4 out of 5

   It wasn't the perfect comic but it really held up it's own story and I can see myself picking up #2,3, and 4

The American Son arc in SPider-Man made me forgive the Web Crawler, as well as Marvel, for OMD. But they brought up the OTHER story arc that the fans aren't a 100% behind on.

    Plot & Action: Once upon a time, crazy Normie Osborn wanted to make his son, Harry, the American Son - an armored superhero - in an attempt to kill him, in Avengers action, to garner public sympathy. If you want to read that arc, I suggest doing so, but it's not entirely necessary here as Brian Reed makes this book accessible to newcomers. This takes place post-"Siege," the American Son is back, and everyone's assuming that Harry's running around playing hero. We get a good glimpse at Harry'...
