Superman: That Healing Touch Reviews
Superman continues to face threats cooked up by Ruin in this graphic novel from Greg Rucka. Determined to take down the Man of Steel, Ruin twists the abducted Allston twins into two brand new Parasites. With a little help from Steel's armory and Mr. Mxyzptlk, Kal-El is able to subdue his newest foes before they can reveal his identity to their creator. Despite the new-look villains, this volume continues to be bogged down by the Ruin mystery. Enough hints have been dropped to deduce the identity of the man behind the mask, but pacing continue to be drawn out for dramatic effect. The odd gem at the end of the collection is the true prize. Overhearing Clark and Lois discuss children, Mxyzptlk conjures up baby Lara Lane-Kent - daughter of Superman. Despite being a one-and-done fantasy story, it is the varied popular artistic styles used in Lara's tale that catch an artist's eye: Frank Miller noir, Bill Waterson cartooning, and Bruce Timm animation. Despite the one-off coda, That Healing Touch still needs therapy to help the Superman title regain its magic.
Si no me equivoco, leí la totalidad de este libro en la edición en revistas de Sticker Design. Cuando lo corrobore, seguro ownee el book, pero como no estoy totalmente seguro, lo reseño provisoriamente recordando la sensación que me causó: en parte me aburrió, en parte me resultó muy ridículo. Sin duda parte del material que SD no tendría que haber publicado si querían tener un material interesante para enganchar a los novatos. Claro que lo que vino después tampoco es que fuera mucho mejor, pero ese ya es otro tema...
Meh. This story is so wrapped up in Identity Crisis, already a crisis of storytelling, that it's hard to follow exactly what Superman is doing to stop the man testing him physically and invading his life as Clark Kent.The only reason to read this book is to catch up on that little imp from the fifth dimension, as his story has a touching conclusion next volume. Also, check out more sweet marital interaction between Lois and Clark, as she confronts him about having a baby and then applies the right words to get him to calm down about the chaos enveloping their world.
This really felt more like a filler book, as Superman is caught up in all that is swirling around the rest of the DC Universe.
Was about a 2.5, but the Calvin and Hobbes section moves it to a 3.
I love this one! Myx is my fav and I loved all the 4th wall breaking he did along with all of his other crazy shenanigans!!
