Blackest Night: Superman #3 - Mini Review
As it's Halloween today I'm going to stick to that theme and do a mini review of the Superman tie-in for the biggest undead comic event of the year; Blackest Night.
Issue 3 completes a strong tie-in mini-series with a strong final action packed issue. This series in my opinion has been much stronger than the Batman Blackest Night mini. Robinson does great work writing the Superboy character the same way G. Johns does in Adventure Comics, which is basically a young man struggling with his identity. Psycho-Pirate is a great choice of villain for this series due to his control of peoples emotions which links back nicely to the Lantern Colour's Emotional Spectrum. Krypto and Ma Kent are especially awesome in this issue and all the villains are dealt with nicely wrapping up the series but still at the end leaves room to connect back into the main Blackest Night event. Eddy Barrow Barrows work has been fantastic for this series and is fast becoming one of may favorite DC pencilers.
Addicted to comics but also love films and music. The idea for my blog is to be the first stop for comic book fans. I will do my best to update the blog everyday with comic news and previews and links to other great comic book sites. I will also of course post my opinons about these topics and try to post my own comic book reviews every week. I would love to hear from readers of the blog (i.e. you) what you think about my articles and the content. Lastly, I am a big music lover and movie fan so these topics will occasionally be blogged about and I would love suggestions about what to listen to and what films to see and what I should be reading. Cheers
