Short Attention Span Reviews 11-26-2008

This week we have quick reviews of JSA Kingdom Come Special : The Kingdom #1, Transformers : All Hail Megatron #5, and Superman #682

JSA Kingdom Come Special : The Kingdom #1 :

Finally! This story is picking up and getting interesting. Gog continues traveling across Africa towards Kahndaq (which will probably not go well), and continues to imbue his gifts on those that believe in him. The JSA gets split by belief and Atom Smasher is a badass. In the end, the other shoe drops and those that believe in Gog look at him just a little differently.

Transformers : All Hail Megatron #5

Another fabulous issue of this mini-series. The Decepticons continue their dominance and the Autobots begin to show just how bad their situation is. The humans attempt to step up their campaign as well with disastrous results. I love this book, and there’s even an appearance by the Matrix of Leadership. What’s that I hear? You’ve got the touch…….You’ve got the powerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!

Superman #682 (New Krypton Part 6)

I still don’t like Robinson’s dialog, it’s way too broken up and stammering for the most part. It’s almost like it dumbs everyone down. The art is very well done though and I do like where this plot is going. The Kryptonians begin to “clean up” Earth and of course some things don’t go as planned. A surprise appearance at the end keeps it interesting and I look forward to the next installment.

Kingdom was really great. It was nice to see the return of Atom Smasher & to actually see Sand in action. I wasn't too sure about this storyline, but it just keeps getting better.
