I was utterly confused at what exactly went down in the boardroom at LexCorp here. Could it be the art? Did I read too quick? I don’t know but I am not sure why everyone was freaking out at the end. I liked the back-up a lot more as Jimmy goes in a date with Maggie Mxyzptlk! Awesome! It’s sad that this Jimmy Olsen co-feature won’t be continuing. I can’t believe I actually loved a Jimmy Olsen co-feature!

Fallen For This Book

I have seriously fallen in love with Action Comics. This is a book starring Lex Luthor and Jimmy Olsen. I never would have guessed I would be loving it this much but I have to say that this book has stole my heart. Everything about it is good. The Jimmy back-up was hilarious. The Lex story made great use of continuity. In other words, buy it.

Every Page Is Filled With Awesomeness

When did Action Comics get this good? I mean every page of this book is just fun awesomeness from Lex Luthor’s meeting with Death to Jimmy Olsen’s party with Aliens. Whatever I say will not do justice to how good this issue is. I loved every moment and Death stays true to her character in Sandman. I loved how Blackest Night was something she kinda noticed and found amusing – the Endless characters are so above and beyond the main DC Universe characters things that seem huge to the superheroes are very minor to them.

Grodd And His Battle Spoon

The main feature was pretty awesome – although I don’t remember Grodd eating brains or having a giant spoon before this issue – that was weird and kind of annoying if its just being introduced here and I didn’t miss something. The end was fantastic but I almost wish DC hadn’t announced her appearance beforehand it would have been even more exciting! I was skeptical about the Jimmy Olsen back-up as I was never a huge fan of the character but it rocked as well! It helps that Chloe is in it too! Welcome to the DCU Chloe Sillivan!
