Description de l'ouvrage

6 novembre 2012
A New York Times Best Seller!

Following the events of the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling graphic novel by acclaimed writer Michael J. Straczynski and superstar artist Shane Davis, comes the long awaited sequel SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE VOL. 2!

Young Clark Kent continues his journey toward becoming the World's Greatest Super Hero, but finds dealing with humanity to be a bigger challenge than he ever imagined! From a ruthless dictator to a new love interest who's NOT Lois Lane, things are never easy for this emerging Man of Steel.

And the worst is yet to come, in the form of a man-monster with an insatiable appetite, the Parasite! The only thing that might appease his hunger is The Last Son of Kryptonian! But that will also mean he will have Superman's powers without his conscience, and Kal-El cannot come anywhere near him, even though he has to stop him!

Revue de presse

“Eisner Award winner Straczynski (Babylon 5; Amazing Spider-Man) does more than contemporize Superman’s story: his hero is a wild card who grew up alienated and isolated, whose human parents’ wishes for him are more about self-actualization than doing good deeds, and whose birth parents have tasked him with avenging Krypton against its enemies…Davis’s artwork combines classic superhero design with contemporary detail and a slightly dark edge. Fine stuff.”—Library Journal

2.0 étoiles sur 5 C'était mieux avant : Supreme Power ! 13 novembre 2012
Par Présence TOP 50 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Relié
Ce tome paru initialement en 2012 fait suite à Superman earth one des mêmes auteurs : J.M. Straczynski au scénario, Shane Davis aux dessins, Sandra Hope à l'encrage et Barbara Ciardo pour la mise en couleurs. Il vaut mieux avoir lu le premier tome avant celui-ci.

Clark Kent a réussi son premier scoop, mais Perry White lui explique que l'important dans ce métier de journaliste, c'est de durer en révélant au grand jour ce que d'autres veulent continuer à conserver secret. Lois Lane ne peut pas croire que Superman ait accordé une interview à un parfait inconnu dans le monde journaliste ; elle commence à mener son enquête et découvre que Clark Kent était un adolescent singulier. Kent emménage dans un quartier à forte mixité sociale. Eddie Johannson, un jeune artiste musicien, passe le temps à l'entrée de l'immeuble, en se défonçant de temps à autre. Lisa Lasalle, sa voisine, lui rend visite dans son appartement et lui fait des avances de nature très explicite. Ailleurs Raymond Jensen, un tueur, fait le ménage derrière lui, ne laissant aucun témoin vivant. Superman essaye de sauver une population vivant sur une côte où se déchaîne un ouragan, mais il se heurte au général du coin qui lui interdit d'intervenir sur un sol étranger. L'armée continue de réfléchir à comment disposer d'une arme capable de stopper Superman, car il n'est pas possible qu'un tel individu puisse être aussi altruiste.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Earth One Furthers Explores the Duality of Clark Kent and Superman 6 novembre 2012
Par Anarchy in the US - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
DC's Earth One books were designed to be the companies' attempt at making stories in graphic novels for their respected characters, as opposed to making individual comics. These stories exist outside of the main continuity as to let writers have more leeway in writing about aspects that haven't been written about before, without interfering with overlapping details. And it all started with 2010's Superman: Earth One. Writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Shane Davis made a cinematic reimaging of Clark Kent becoming Superman, that became a huge seller overnight. DC made JMS drop all of his projects at the time of release to get to work on a volume 2. After 2 years, does it proceed or trump Vol.1? I think so.

SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE VOL.2 picks up right after the end of Vol.1, where we see Clark settling into his new persona of glasses and keeping to himself. He finally gets his own apartment with some new neighbors, including a flirtatious woman named Lisa Lasalle. Lois Lane, questioning how a young nobody like Clark Kent could get Superman's story, starts an investigation into Clark's background. And Raymond Maxwell Jensen, homicidal killer, accidently becomes the Parasite, a metahuman who can suck living beings powers and essence. How will Superman fight a creature who can steal his powers away? You'll have to find out.

After reading both Earth One books of Superman Vol.1 and Batman, I've come to the conclusion the EO books are more about humanizing our protagonist and changing some aspects of the mythos, while stretching some of the taboos of the character. Batman: Earth One did this exceptionally well, with making a Bruce Wayne who never left Gotham, as well as being angst-ridden and making human errors. Superman Vol.1 did some subtle changes, but it played safe to the overall mythos. Vol.2 on the other hand, actually takes more risks on dealing with Clark Kent, the human side of Superman, including the subject of the 70+ year old question regarding sex for The Man of Steel, and I find it commendable. It's different to read about and is handled fairly well, which I'll talk about in a bit.

There are two over-arching themes here: Superman represents power and Clark Kent represents isolation. Of the two, Clark Kent takes majority of the screen time and for someone like me who doesn't see a lot of stories on Clark, this is fresh perspective. The theme of being alone is so prevalent that a good majority of the interactions Clark has throughout the story are brief. Lois looks up Clarks background and finds out his whole life has been about keeping away from others due to his power and origins, and to the point that Clark had straight C-grades in school to stay under the radar. Lois, Jimmy, and Perry White are rarely seen for this intention as well to further this theme. It's handled well and you actually care for Clark being an outcast because of who he is. It makes his turmoil that much acceptable to the reader--especially a sad and lovely story about Clarks first pet.

But this theme gets challenged by the only friend Clark gets (and love interest) Lisa Lasalle. Lisa pushes Clark into new territories, being a voluptuous redhead with tattoos immediately coming on to Clark from page one. The interaction of this one and only friend, as well as pushing Clark's boundaries in intimacy, gives Clark human qualities we all feel and sympathize with. And the taboo with dealing with sex for Superman (and the awkward and funny scene with Jonathan Kent and Clark over sex) is something that works out well, and adds those qualities never talked about before. I know JMS gets a lot of heat for shaking things up for characters, but I applaud him for trying.

The other theme is power; power to rule, corrupt, and lust for. Power of Superman doing just about anything he wishes, and because of it, the world views him from both perspectives: a savior of a god or a destructive weapon ready to go off. This is shown when Superman goes to a foreign land and tries to help, only to be threatened about "guns are the power". The Parasite represents greed and monstrosity of what power can do. Even Superman has an edgy persona about him that drool's power. And even when Superman loses majority of his power, he finds something more about those who don't have it. It's a good metaphor and theme about where Superman stands in this world and universe, and it offsets the more somberness of the book with action. The theme isn't handled as well as the theme of isolation, but it works.

As for art, Shane Davis is up there with some of the more underrated artist. He puts on the same level of detail and cinematic feel about it here like he did in Vol.1, but even more so. His detail to human expressions are key here. They go well with Straczynski's writing. 80% of the book is in the expressions, with only 20% in the action. So you'll do well to take your time and really take in the panels.

As for complaints, it lies in the character usage of Lisa, Lois, and the Parasite. The Parasite is written somewhat one-dimensional. He plays a great monstrosity of a character, but lacks some polish on his background. As for Lisa, she is and will probably be the biggest lighting rod for debate, due to the nature of her. For one, JMS writes some horribly cheesy lines for her. She immediately slathers her way onto Clark from page one, which is something most people would never do. JMS could have at least eased into her coming on to Clark, but it feels way to fast and ridiculous to believe. The other is her being the new love interest over Lois. Lois and Clark barely have anything to do with one another in Earth One, so this will feel uneasy with readers who feel Lois should be the love interest. And the other...well sorry if this feels like spoiler, but...Lisa is a prostitute (occasionally). This little nugget of information has already made people up-in-arms over feminist as seeing Lisa as stereotypical. People might see this as Clark being around a women who is "impure" to someone like himself. I don't mind this take, but some people out there might really go nuts over this.

SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE VOL.2 does everything Vol.1 does, but ups it up greatly. This is a great character study on Clark Kent, and using the Earth One title to deal with such forbidden discussion to great effect. If you're one who didn't enjoy Vol.1, then this book probably won't change your mind. But if you did enjoy Vol.1 and want to take it further, Vol.2 shouldn't disappoint. And if your one who wants a different take on the Clark Kent/Superman mythos, then this too is worth checking out. The big teases and set-ups for the inevitable Vol.3, I'm looking forward on what JMS and Davis do in the future.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 better then the rest. 6 novembre 2012
Par JFL - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
The first volume of this book re-imagined the creation of Superman in an updated world and gave readers a look into the "why" he chose to don the symbolic "S" on his chest. The second volume depicts Superman's battle with himself, the world, and Parasite, a serial-killing super-powered human that gains strength as he steals energy from humans, electrics, cars, and even Superman himself.

Stracynzski has taken the Perry White character and developed him into a mentor for Clark Kent the journalist, instead of just the tough boss. He has also added another love interest, Lisa Lasalle, Clark's redheaded next-door neighbor. While Clark has another love interest Lois Lane is not forgotten as she investigates a story only she notices. Jimmy Olsen is a Crazy do-anything-for-the-picture photographer.

Shane Davis and Sandra Hope have done an amazing job in this phenomenally drawn comic. The book is edgy,colorful, and both Parasite and Superman look tremendous. The battle scenes in Earth One Volume 2 may seem short-lived and quick, but their point is made and drawn beautifully.

Clark is challenged on a number of different levels as he determines what he will and will not do with his both powers. Parasite that brings him down to Earth in miserable fashion, two of his neighbors suffering from their own societal ills, and a brutal dictator of a war-torn country brings into question the political significance of Superman. the main focus of the book is to explore Clark Kent's mind. Drawn in by Clark's human feelings readers are offered a look into his past and what went into his becoming Superman.

I highly recommend this Story to anyone who enjoyed "creation of" or "evolution of" a hero story lines in the past, this one is with the best.

This is the 2nd volume in the superman line of Dcs earth one books, but you probably already knew that. Now as for the book itself its even better than the 1st. We get to see how the arrival of superman impacts the world at large and clark kents personal life. We get to see an awesome new love interest for clark as well as a kick ass version of the parasite. The art in this book is even better than it was in volume one, the action looks awesome and the quieter character scenes are drawn to perfection. One of the best superman stories of 2011-2012. Overall 5/5

I totally swept through this book as fast as I could. The writing is amazing. For some reason you can tell this guy has worked for films before and is not just another comic book writer. I totally LOVED it. And the art is amazing as well. This is another view to Superman's story and its a great one.

Superman Earth One Volume Two Review
By David B. Levenstam

I loved J. Michael Straczynski's Superman Earth One and his Babylon 5 TV series. I wanted to love his Superman Earth One Volume Two, but I merely liked it. It didn't quite live up to the stellar first volume, although it was still good enough that I look forward to a Volume Three.

Volume Two did begin outstandingly, with some great humor in the relationship between Clark and Perry. I actually did laugh out loud. Volume Two also contained some humor and one nice surprise between Lois and Jimmy. A touching story that Clark tells a new neighbor and potential love interest really brought a lump to my throat, and Straczynski brought a fresh approach to two major villains from Superman lore.

I found the story difficult to follow, however, in a couple of places. When the first villain gets his superpowers, we see almost nothing that explains what caused it. In one scene Superman appears to deliberately kill people, and we have nothing at the time but our faith in Superman--and the knowledge that this isn't Frank Miller's Batman--to tell us that it's just a fantasy. (A much later scene justifies that faith.) We see a scene that's supposed to show us that the first villain was already a monster before his transformation, yet the kid whose ear the villain bit off as a kid certainly had it coming, so the villain doesn't look so monstrous after all. When Superman fights the first villain he's losing, and then some stranger activates an electronic device over the villain, and suddenly Superman has won. It's not clear whether the stranger is just snapping a photo of the downed villain, and we don't actually know how Superman suddenly defeated the villain, or the stranger's device somehow deactivated the villain's powers--in which case we still don't know how the villain was defeated.

In other places the story doesn't really make sense. In one combat scene Superman gets a protective suit, and his ship warns him that the suit will prevent the sun's raise from getting to Superman to energize him--but then the suit turns out to be transparent, so it shouldn't stop the sunlight. Toward the end of the story, Superman finally decides how to deal with the man he fantasized about killing--which itself seems very unlike Superman--in a way that frankly seems little better than if Superman had done the deed himself, and maybe worse since Superman essentially allows others to take responsibility for what he himself has put into motion. That doesn't seem very like Superman either.

The book, like its predecessor, ended with two Daily Planet stories, once by Lois Lane and one by Clark Kent. Unlike the predecessors' stories, however, these were no better than mediocre.

On the whole I found that the humor, excitement, and drama outweighed the weak portions of the story to the point that the story deserves better than 3 stars, but not really 4. Since I can't give it 3.5 stars here, but I'd like it to sell well enough so that Straczynsk does a third volume, I'm giving it 4 stars.
