Hello Joe and Jerry!

Five pages out of the story arc – Up, Up and Away – in Action Comics and Superman. Written by Kurt Busiek.

Kurt’s stories are awesome. They leave me with a sense of nobility… a goodness. The Big S. He’s the best there is… no two ways about it!!

Up

And up.

and up

yehaaa

And oops…

oh mannnn

And whoa…

Superman

And what happens when you see Superman, returned from the Infinite Crisis having lost his powers and not seen over Metropolis for almost a year, standing by the window in your office? 😀

Awesome!!

I bought this TPB! I definitely recommend a buy on this one for anyone who’s into comic books. Imagine Lex Luthor getting his hands on a Kryptonian battleship capable of taking on an entire planet teeming with an advanced civilisation. And the only thing that ship wasn’t designed to taken on – Superman!!

Up Up and Away on Action Comics and Superman – written by Kurt Busiek and Geoff Johns for DC Comics. Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

Hello Strange, Beautiful World!

June 3, 2008

It is a strange world. And that’s the beauty of it!

This realisation came when I read the Planetary Magazine – a series created by Warren Ellis and John Cassaday published by Wildstorm. At sci-fi tale of mystery and intrigue of the adventures of the Planetary Organisation. It’s a three man group with a person known as – ‘The Fourth Man’ funding it!

Unlimited imagination, a tale that is as interesting as it is challenging. Warren Ellis shows his true genius in stories like these. Inspired by the events in Marvel comics (Fantastic Four), Warren Ellis forges ahead to create a tremedously exciting story that deals with parallel universes, mythical objects of power, God and the random strangeness of events that makes our planet so interesting.

The Planetary*ing Jakita Wagner, The Drummer, Elijah Snow and guest starring Sherlock Homes, Jules Verne and Count Dracula.

A beautiful story and a must-buy comic book.

God?

What this be?

Yes, really!

Yep, could be God!
