> Any thoughts on this issue?
ACTION COMICS #858
-super, eye-catching cover! That ring just sets the stage. And any nitpick about the color of the sky comes back to bite ya in the butt by the end
-entertaining prologue! Looks like a clever cliche Superman origin with a entertaining twist but also it subliminally neatly drops in the color yellow into readers mind
-WONDERFUL art/inks/color all issue!! Though his suit is a little baggy, on the title page, it is still an interesting depiction. Hopefully this art team last past the trilogy
-is DC trying to establish that Kal El was an ugly baby?
-liked the BING and the KLIK on this page
-Clark seems to be putting a LOT of effort into his bumbling image. Could be a subplot in development. His face examining his tie for stains is excellent
-is this Jimmy appearance after Countdown series (probably a spoiler in itself)?
-noting the camera got peripheral damage in a superbattle, it's been 10years, and the observation of only having one young friend(Jimmy now in his 20s) were all great tidbit notes
-does this mean the Mon-El encounter in the recent Annual did or didn't happen?
-Kent's clothes still go in his cape?
-using Brainiac giant was a fitting supervillain to use to start the trilogy off with ACTION. He probably arrived in that same time sphere...
-really enjoyed the flashback at school (despite probable continuity problems)
-really enjoyed the 2 pages of flying (and the dejection at seeing the bird not alone)
-really enjoyed the LSH flashback (it was nostalgic, necessary, and NEATO!)
-how true to the original is this retconned meeting? Has sweet, SINGLE, Saturn Girl ever flirted with Kent before in a story? Does that panel with young Kent's wonderful smile look kinda like Harry Potter?
-REALLY enjoyed the 2 page LSH lineup splash! Though Phantom Girl's suit is a little baggy it is also an INTERESTING depiction *love*
-incorporates the memory-charge element, to explain away forgotten past, and the JLA appearance, for utilize present continuity. Not that familiar with LSH/Superman current history but will empathize with any regular readers who question continuity problems
-the robot's explosion and Superman's future arrival had a scary factor
-it's probably/obviously an altered timeline from Supergirl And The LSH title but the altered uniform designs seem neat
-the laser thru the hand was a shock moment that was then topped by the even bigger cliffhanger shock splash
-CANNOT WAIT FOR PART TWO!
