Action is good but has yet to really blow me away. It's certainly working on building more of a story and a mythos but there are elements I'm not quite yet sold on (namely young Clark's Peter Parker-like digs.) I also thought the alien/immigration angle would have been played up a bit more in this issue given the cover and everything but it seemed to be a fairly small part of the story. I'm also not yet sold on the art in this book. It's mostly good but, again, I don't much like the look of "Clark Kent." I think it tries to hard to make him look starkly different than Superman or previous incarnations of Clark.

It's still good and Superman is Superman but it's yet to really wow me.

I'll read Detective Comics #3 tomorrow but that's one of the Batman titles that's yet to really impress me.

I like the nod to the Atom in Morrison's development of Brainiac.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Trekker I'm curious as to why you aren't sold on Clark's "Peter Parker like digs"? It is implied through where he lives that he isn't making a lot of money and property in Metropolis is expensive. JMS had Earth One Clark rent a room in a shady hotel. I think there is a couple of reasons that Clark lives in a dump. The obvious is that he doesn't make enough to live anywhere else, he is still waiting for that big break in his career, and this is just my own personal guess, he probably feels grounded and secure in a place like that. Not to mention that it goes along with "being one with the people" aspect that Morrison is going for. I like it.

As for Clark's look. It is basically a younger take on what he did in All-Star Superman. I'm digging Rags Morales art right now and I'm not particularly a big fan of his.

Not sure what Peter's "digs" were like once he moved out of May's house. I think he and Harry shared an apartment for a while. Though I don't think it was a small one room like Clark has.

Peter's lived in much better accommodations before. Unless it was a reference to his apartment in "Spider-Man 2".

Nicola Scott will be guest drawing Superman #3 which makes me excited. I'm a fan of her work.

Action comics 3 was ok but you can see Rags is struggling with the deadlines and the quality of the art (in the bits he draws) is starting to slide. Wonder if we get a fill-in artist by 5 or 6?

We are getting fill in artists.Gene Ha is doing guest work next issue and there have been announced a couple more, including Andy Kubert for a two issue run. I believe myself or someone else posted the link a while ago. The thread is getting longish though so it is possible it was missed.

I'm sure that could be just as easily conveyed by Peter living in a studio apartment in the bad part of town. I could also argue that since the Kents are dead Clark certainly would have gotten their estate which should have been worth something.

Absolutely. This, along with Byrne, is the coolest Krypton's ever looked...and this has a nice retro vibe that his version didn't.

I see Supes is getting an education about how the law works, or doesn't; shaking a confession out of Glenmorgan did about as much good as one would expect.

I don't know how else you'd expect young Clark to live in the big city; what kind of money does Trekker4747 think a twenty-something stringer/blogger makes, anyway?

The connections between Morrison's five-years-ago Supes and the one we're seeing in Superman are becoming clearer.

I totally love the reboot Lois and like the new Jimmy too.

So Aunt May, uh, Clark's landlady is in on the secret now? Does that mean she has to die?

Depends on how much Monsanto felt like paying for farmland in a tiny Kansas town, surely.

I was trade-waiting on Action, since purchasing Morrison Superman was inevitable in some form, and chose to support titles I felt would struggle. But now that I'm dropping JLI, I think I'll go back and get them. They look far too cool to wait another minute.

She'll get a Kryptonite-induced memory wipe/reboot in the third act.
