Great introduction to Damian Wayne. Boy was he annoying, but that`s par for the course.

Kamala is written in a way that makes her relatable to younger readers and her being a Muslin teenage girl serves as no excuse not to.

 While she is insecure and uncomfortable with her religious background, there are a lot of opportunities to connect with the character. She dreams of  superhero action and admires, of all people, the Avengers. She has issues with her family who are overly protective and tries to sample all manners of  high school life like parties, popularity and fanfiction.

There are your standard teenage troupes such as the jock, the popular girl or the obvious love interest in the form of the best friend and more. However, all of this only to make her more in common with readers as a troubled yet refreshing and vibrant character. Although the carbon copy of Regina George known as Zoe does come off a cliche stereotype.

Both issues are to show an origin story for the new hero, but even without a main villain it does set up a mystery as to how Kamala received her powers and what she can really do or what her new purpose entails. And seeing the soon to be hero  trying to get used to her powers does come across as funny and entertaining to see. Even more the character is put on the right track as she wants to make a difference in the world with her new powers.

There is no major conflict other than with Kamala`s  family and classmate, but at least there was some genuine superheroing and perhaps next issue there will be more of that.

Alphona`s art is expressive, has a very western cartoon style and the bright colors compliment the soft penciling work giving the comic a light, aesthetically pleasing feel.

It is still early in the comic to judge it immensely but these two first issues do the job of connecting Kamala to readers.

Ms. Marvel Issues# 1 and 2 together receive 4 out of 5

Robert Venditti, since Geoff Johns departure, has been slow with the amount of  filler and a somewhat slow moving plot. However they aren`t without charm and have characters like Hal Jordan grow and still be entertaining. And issue 30 does show that while Hal Jordan has become a leader as seen last issue, he`s still the usual carefree space cop but less reckless. This is shown when getting himself into another confrontation, Hal still suggests the option of a more peaceful alternative, having his humanity shine with concern.

The comic is also not without it`s amusement, scene where the lanterns talks with the Khund is almost as if two opposing generals are discussing combat but still having a good time. Especially Hal, as he  remains confident  and give off some witty bits of dialog.

As for the story itself, the ending scene adds a new twist on the impersonation and framing of the Green Lantern Corps, that there is something fishy in their ranks. 

The cover by Billy Tan and Alex Sinclair is well colored however awkward especially when trying to illustrate an epic fight scene. This is a shame since the art for the book is far superior.

The art for the story by Martin Coccolo does have it`s issues with perspective and proportions however there are far few and too far apart that they may not even be noticed. The first few pages are gorgeous and refreshing with landscapes and natural backgrounds. 
With that said, Coccolo`s pencil shading sticks out at times but is balanced with the surreal water coloring style  by Tony Avina and Alex Sinclair, making the book aesthetically pleasing. 

Green Lantern Issue # 30 receives 4 out 5

If you've followed my blog in any capacity, you know I like to discuss those rarities I feel are largely ignored. Sure, I'm certain there are other people who could tell you if Sonic is way past cool, or how silly it is that Tim Burton's wife always gets similar roles, or how enrapturing Friendship is Magic is. But I always try my best to take the road less traveled, to finds those spots that most of the Internet missed, and to attack them.

Action comics from the start of the reboot has been criticized for its emphasis on a more violent Superman. Now while Grant Morrison`s run, justifiable yes, only made Superman`s actions seem more like an act of terrorism. But here it is more understandable. Much like Azzarello`s run on Superman Man of Steel, Clark is given legitimate reasons why he isn`t the happiest of campers. In this issue the hero is taking his anger out on the organization that has been targeting him and nearly cost him his new companions. However Clark`s storming through Harrow`s headquarters is still jarring. 

But what makes this issue surprising is that while the kryptonian may seem to have reverted back to his more brutal and rash ways, near the end that wasn`t the case.Other than resorting to keep hitting things Clark thought strategically from his encounters with the Ghost Soldier even thinking on the spot and just surviving on a thread.

 And when Superman looks like he is going to kick his opponents while they are down, do something mean spirited , he dose the mature thing. At that moment, once again by Pak, Superman character felt more like what readers expect him to be. Despite the brutal opening. 

However while the battle with Harrow was entertaining as Superman cleverly  subdues Harrow`s forces and tries to survive her second wave, there is things that go unexplained. There is still no explanation why Harrow wanted Ghost Soldier to follow Clark and Lana to the underground city or further explication for Baka`s people. On the upside there is finally explanation for the main villains however would have been preferable that our villains be more fleshed out from the start of this story arch and within this book alone. 

Arron Kuder has been consistent with his dynamic fight scenes and still expressive with the furious  Superman without seeming over the top. The more subdued moment near the end was also well done, selling the understanding Superman that readers know and love. However Kuder cannot take all the credit as he is joined by Karl Kerschl, who worked on the gorgeous underwater scenes and a unique monster design.

Action Comics Issue 30 receives a 4 out of 5.
