Superman Unchained #2 review 0

Issue number two of Scott Snyder and Jim Lees Superman Unchained is quite fantastic. Not only is the art top notch (as to be expected from Jim Lee) but the way Snyder portrays his Superman is rather refreshing as it shows us just how smart Superman really is. It details His (Superman) thought process as to how to deal with problems and how methodical and calm he acts under pressure. There Is also a nice little cameo from the caped crusader and along with the new villain that just puts the cherr...

Batman's Input 0

This was a series that I was much looking forward to, as with Jim Lee being my favourite artist, and Scott Snyder being one of my favourite writers of recent times I wanted to see how they'd handle the Man of Steel. The first issue didn't disappoint, and I hope that the series continues to amaze me.PlotAfter Superman stops a terrorist attack in Dubai he goes to Batman for help with one of the broken satellites.ReviewThis was a brilliant issue, but not quite as good as the first issue. Scott Snyd...

Superman Unchained #2 - Introduction to WRAITH 0

COVER ART: 5/5JIM LEE does another fantastic job providing this weeks (07/07/13) best, or at least top 3 covers in comic land. The detail is just phenomenal and there is great patriotism with Superman holding the tattered flag. STORY ARC: 5/5SCOTT SNYDER brings the heat onto SUPERMAN in this 2nd issue of Superman Unchained. There are 4 main developments going on in this issue. 1) The immanent escape and plans of LEX LUTHOR.2) The true plans of the Techno-Terrorist group ASCENSION.3) The develop...

19 second to save 36,000 people. 0

I'm not the biggest Superman fan I find him a little too powerful at points, and well a little bland at points, but maybe that's just me, and I was maybe pre-judging him. Yet I enjoyed last issue it wasn't as great as some people were making out, but it was still good, and a promising start to the series, but I still feel a little apprehensive about this book because of how I feel about Superman, and some reviews for it have been fairly negative. PlotSuperman attempts to save the worlds tallest...

A Damn Fox and a Half 29

After the phenomenal first issue of Superman Unchained, I've finally managed to read the second issue today. Late I know but I get my comics a month later. Anyway, given the success of the first issue, I hoped the second issue could live up to the bar set for it by Snyder and Lee’s awesome collaboration. SPOILERS WILL FOLLOW IN THIS REVIEW.Admittedly, the first page is a bit pointless. It’s just Lex quoting from the Illiad and is Snyder’s vain attempt at foreshadowing. Lex doesn’t have a promine...

2 for 2 0

Excellent second issue! Picking up from the quality of the first and embellishing on the mystery and intrigue surrounding this mysterious new challenger for the Man of Steel. If you have been bored or unimpressed by past Superman series then this is setting up to be a series that may reconcile those past failures and misadventures!...

A decent enough issue. 0

This was originally posted to my review blog here.While I enjoyed #2 for the most part, I still didn’t get what made this title special, or why Superman needed a third book to himself (or even fourth for that matter if you count Batman/Superman) when other characters are not even getting ONE book. But that’s slippery slope thinking where comics themselves are concerned (the case for superhero movies is entirely different).The issue starts off with putting Superman right smack in the middle of Du...

It's an isolated Superman story, be at ease! 0

BATMAN writer Scott Snyder and super star artist Jim Lee continue unchaining Superman's new monthly ongoing series!The Good"I'm Superman, and I'm Awesome."The opening for this issue was so cool! We get to see what Superman is made of with the World's Largest tower crashing around him. It was nice to see Superman use his brain for an intense situation and how he was thinking of different solutions and how'd they pan out if he executed them. Granted it's been done a million times before, but seein...

Unchained Double Header of Great Writing. 0

Okay this is the 3rd time I'm making this review. I found the book too be very well written. I've also found the Batman cameo to highlight the friendship between the two. The development was good and gave us insight into Superman's mind. Which isn't something I often see but that might be because I'm not as big of a fan. I recommend this issue....
