Pak is killing it on Action. It's easily the best Superman-centric book on the stands at the moment.

I'm enjoying it so much. But I haven't decided if I like it more than Unchained. Both are pretty awesome, imo.

Romita's art really shines with a good inker, but Janson does him no favors. Really wish he had Scott Hannah with him on this book.

Also, it looks like Supes was supposed to be bleeding from the mouth, but the colorist made it look like spit?

That is exactly how I feel. For me Klaus Janson is a lot like Rob Liefeld, good for his time, but because his style has literally stayed the same as opposed to evolving with the times it just looks absolutely awful now. Just like how Liefeld needs to go back to the 90's where he belongs, Janson just needs to go back to the 80's.

I'm not sure it's a time thing for me, but tone. I think Janson would probably work fine for a Punisher or Batman book. But for Superman? The inks need to be cleaner and the colors should be brighter.

Janson just makes everything feel claustrophobic.

Does anyone think we'll get a new superman suit for the new 52? Yeah I don't like the current suit in the comics. What do you think? What's your opinion? Any news about the topic?

I hope not, I was against the New 52 suit at first too, but it has really grown on me. Now I love it almost as much as the classic Superman suit.

i have mentioned on more then one occasion how much I would love for them to replace the suit with a new one. Everyone just seems to say that the new suit has grown on them. I thought it looked awesome in the infinite crisis trailer released very recently, so maybe it is growing on me too... They changed cyborg so i suppose it isn't out of the realm of possibility. Just very unlikely. I really liked the suit they showed in the Superman 0 issue. I have always preferred that he has no collar. I also like the design of the suit and the boots more.



Here is a picture of it. I photoshopped it so that it would have more traditional colors. it was black in the original picture.

I've seen Brett Booth draw that particular suit a couple times and I always love seeing it. Here is the most recent version which is my favorite. (Uncolored)

Coincidentally looking for Superman pictures to use today for something I cam across another version of that suit drawn by DiegoOlortegui from Deviantart. Again I altered it to have more traditional colors.

It truly is growing on me, but there is definitely room for improvement... In my opinion, of course.

Without the red undies, the suit is just visually boring. The red undies and yellow belt broke up all that monochromatic blue. With Batman, getting rid of the undies worked for several reasons. Visually, Batman's costume has a lot more going on (a more stylized cape, a more stylized belt, the gauntlets, the mask, the armored design, the fear element, etc) to where the monochromatic grey works. Also, unlike Superman, the undies just looked silly on Batman.

Also, I'm personally not a fan of the Kryptonian armor concept. It's something that works in a movie like Man of Steel, but in the comics, I prefer the simple story of Ma Kent making her son a costume made out of the blankets that he arrived in.

I'd love to see the classic suit return, but sadly as long as Didio, Johns, and Lee are in charge at DC I don't see it happening.

I'm sure the red trunks & yellow belt will return at some point, though honestly they're not a deal breaker for me.

Whoooa there


Rob Liefeld was always awful.


I have to disagree about Janson's inks too, I think he and Romita Jr still make a great team. Klaus has a boldness that goes really well with JRjr's style.
