    this is very tame restrained almost perhaps as a nod to the low key threats of the early superhero comics back when Superman mainly fought generic hoods There are some joyful moments of superheroic action but few of the big ideas that we re used to from Morrison Then there s Rags Morales pencils which feel patchy especially in terms of the characters His Superman and Clark are strong but Lex Luthor in particular appears to have at least three different faces in one short scene When Morales is good he s very very good a sequence of Lois pursuing a criminal through a train carriage packs in a ton of character but other pages feel fuzzier than they should be Action Comics 1 is a really strong issue I just don t love it and I kind of expected to Which brings us to the final 1 reprinted here Green Lantern 1 written by Geoff Johns again and pencilled by Doug Mahnke While it s debatable how many people will be rushing to buy Green Lantern comics based on the largely apathetic response to this year s movie Green Lantern 1 does have a simple hook that viewers of that movie will understand that Sinestro Hal Jordan s mentor has been through a phase as a yellow ringed villain but has now been forcibly re recruited to the Green Lantern Corps at the same time as Jordan as had his ring stripped from him and been kicked out It s a reasonably big bold premise even when applied to a fiddly concept like Green Lantern and it makes for a much stronger comic than Justice League 1 The art balances character and action well and David Baron s colours make the important distinction between the vivid colour scheme of the alien scenes and the more muted tones back on Earth Of the three issues here this is the one that offers the most promise of going somewhere unexpected with its story As a cheap sampler of the New 52 DC Universe Presents is an excellent buy for 2 99 I m going to stick with it for Action Comics and Green Lantern and consider the Justice League stories a low value freebie one which at least keeps me up to date with what s going on in a title that for better or worse is the flagship of the current DC line Line Break By Mark Clapham Mark Clapham is a Devon based writer and editor You can find out more about him at the egotistically named markclapham com Share DC Universe Presents 43 Tags Action Comics Batman Comics DC Doug Mahnke Geoff Johns Grant Morrison Green Lantern Jim Lee Justice League Rags Morales Superman Titan Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll

  • The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn | Shiny Shelf
    Indy film that s damning the movie with faint praise The film opens fairly promisingly with sight gags such as the lead character having his portrait drawn in the style of Hergé and on seeing his reflection in a mirror he smooths down his trademark quiff only to have it spring back up again but between them Steven Moffat Britain s finest genre TV writer Edgar Wright Britain s finest genre director and Joe Cornish Britain s most promising new genre director have managed to come up with a script that is almost entirely devoid of character development and exists only to allow the director follow each theme park style set piece with another of the same The voice cast is at least pretty good even if Jamie Bell seems to be unnecessarily channeling Ewan McGregor in his performance and much of the comedy works even if it seems to be aimed at a younger audience than even the original comics However the overall effect seems to be a wasted opportunity taking comics with charm and a significant place in culture and turning them into another workmanlike Hollywood franchise Like the other Pirates saga mentioned above this is part of yet another cinema trilogy which I suppose shouldn t be a surprise due to Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson s involvement and like the Caribbean sequels can t even tell a story with a proper ending after a bloated running time I have to admit I was never the greatest fan of Tintin comics or the classic animated series but even a casual knowledge of them makes it obvious this film does a disservice to both Secret of the Unicorn isn t unwatchable and there are worse options to entertain one s kids during half term hoping the film might send them in the direction of the comics and that if the sequel does get made Jackson does a better job than his colleague But those weird shoes made more of an impression on me than the preceding film and I ll probably remember them longer than the CGI Sturm und Drang on screen Line Break By Alex Fitch Share panelborders reviews The Adventures of Tintin Secret of the Unicorn for shinyshelf Tags CGI Comics Movies Peter Jackson Quiff Steven Spielberg Tintin Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV
