It feels weird to type that. Action Comics #1, I own a copy of Action Comics #1. Freaky. I’m not sure about this one at the moment, I like it, but I think I like the idea of it more than the way Morrison and Morales executed it. The whole, working class hero, Bruce Springsteen, Depression-Era Superman thing sounds amazing, but we didn’t get enough of that in this issue, instead what we got was an extended action scene. Now of course the book is called Action Comics, and so there should be plenty of action, and this issue had some truly exciting scenes, Morales’ art looked better here than ever, but I think I actually want more exposition here. I feel like Morrison just kind of dropped me in at the deep end, and while that was probably his intent, it didn’t fully work for me. This issue is supposed to be defining the new Superman, but it barely scratched the surface. I get the feeling that Morrison is waiting for later issues to fully explore and explain what’s going on, so I’ll withhold judgement until then, and I’ll need to read it again, but for now, this issue had too much Action and not enough Superman.
