    Alex Ross, müthişsin. Marvels'dan beri okuduğum en kaliteli şeylerden biri. Cidden süper kahraman olmanın felsefesi bu...

    Review: 9.2/10 This book is odd because in where it shines the most, is also where it fails for me. The art in this is spectacular, hands down. I feel like there is no denying it. Seeing these pictures are beautiful and realistic and they fit in so well with the realistic type of story being told. The color in this helps with the painting like quality and adds a whole other level on godliness for the heroes wearing primary colors.

The art in this is spectacular, hands down. I feel like there is no denying it. Seeing these pictures are beautiful and realistic and they fit in so well with the realistic type of story being told. The color in this helps with the painting like quality and adds a whole other level on godliness for the heroes wearing primary colors. The things done with light and how it is used to express the mysticism of the Spectre. All these things about the art is spectacular, and all these things hurt the book too. Action sequences honestly, just could not be understood. It took me a while to realize who was on who's side and who was fighting who and where and how. It was all just a mess; and in a book so reliant on you understanding how reckless these new heroes are, you can not actually ever see it because it is a jumbled mess. It does not help that the characters fighting are completely new, so even if you wanted to know who was fighting it wouldn't matter because you don't really know their names, or their abilities, or their back stories. Now the concept for this book is very interesting. It is essentially posing the question of what if all these Silver and Golden Age superheroes disappeared, and it is honestly horrible. The new heroes have stopped trying to strive to be the heroes of their past and now aim to be stronger and in that way they just turn reckless. The story is a little reliant on you just going with the flow as they mention characters and you have no idea who they are but you just have to believe that they are a part of this lore of Kingdom Come. I thought Spectre was very cool in this issue, serving as a spiritual guide and a plot device for the reader to get some context in the story. I like how it kind of feels like what Watchmen would have been if they would have made it in the DC Universe and had made it slightly less dark.

Aunque me gusta el hecho de que el personaje del cura sea espectador de lo que sucede, las citas bíblicas no me terminan de convencer. En uno de los tantos mensajes, se nos dice que el cura (la religión) está ahí para encarrilarnos cuando estemos pasando los peores momentos. Superman está en una posición idealista, pero se le va todo de las manos cuando se desata la batalla final (aunque pienso que antes tampoco tenía la situación totalmente controlada). Wonder Woman se la ve mucho más segura y decidida a actuar, aunque luego se va de mambo en la pelea. Hay varias cositas que son algo inverosímiles y no tienen mucha explicación (o yo no supe entenderlas). Por ejemplo, el motivo por el cual los superhumanos (toda persona con superpoderes) se la pasan peleando entre sí constantemente (me refiero al principio de la historia). Se llega a decir: "Ya no luchan por la razón. Pelean solo por pelear, y sus únicos enemigos son ellos mismos". O sea, ¿pelean entre sí por diversión?, ¿a falta de supervillanos? ¿O acaso están aburridos y no tienen nada mejor que hacer? No sé, este detalle argumental me parece algo ridículo y de poca consistencia. Y otra cosa es la actitud de Batman: es ambigua al comienzo, y hasta diría que no se ajusta con su personalidad. ¿Y qué puedo decir del dibujo hiperrealista de Alex Ross? Encaja a la perfección con la grandilocuencia de la historia. En resumen, son interesantes las cuestiones intrínsecamente humanas que se plantean. Cómo los dioses no suplen al ser humano, y es el hombre mismo quien tiene que tomar las riendas de su vida y su futuro.

    Story-line, Good. Artwork, Amazing... This is perhaps one of the few 'elseworld' imprints that'd go into the history book as one of the greatest works in comics. The setting is intriguing enough to be hooked with series, with this momentum I expect the rest of the issues to be packed with depth and meaning and I may probably rate the series with a 5 star.

    The art is beautiful but not what I want from an action comic. However I would love a print of Kal as a farmer. As for the story, I found that confusing, unaware who was a bad guy. And the confusion was only made worse by the beautiful artwork.

    A bit preachy at times but it also got some great artwork and a story interesting enough to continue reading.
