ACTION COMICS #892 The Black Ring: part 3 Review

Rating 2.5 out of 5
This rating is on the story by Paul Cornell not on the co-feature in the back of the issue.

Meh...really Meh... Not bad ... not good... Meh..
The action seemed two old men fighting.  This issue is part of a ongoing storyline and... I did like the previous two issues and ....I'm looking forward to the 'Death' issue, so I'll  still buy into future issues.
But if you haven't started the story yet don't start it on this Issue. 

Review with SPOILERS 

I was trying to cough out my lungs last week because I had come down with whatever is new at the kids school, so I thought maybe it was my Meh... mood when I first read it , but even today as I re-read it, I could care less about this story.

Lex is still looking for answers about the left over energy of the Black Rings.  He is in the Antarctic with his crew and hired bodyguard Deathstroke. They come upon a dome of blackness which Lex believes is "...a different kind of spacetime. An allotrope of normal space."

The dome starts messing with Deathstroke's emotions and he starts making a path toward Lex...killing anyone in his way.  I think the biggest problem is that Deathstroke didn't look fierce, he looked like a old man in a winter coatMaybe if he wore his mask it would have been better.

 Lex gets in his portable green Power suit and the two face off, but... it two old men fighting.  

FOR Example....--> 

Of course I added a few touches to help with the picture but it's close. 

Am I wrong?...

Maybe ...

BUT I'm close....ain't I..?


Am I feeling better...?

  1. Ok, the GRUMPY OLD MEN comparison is HELLA hysterical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You almost killed me with that!!!

    That made me choke. I was eating a powdered Tastykake mini-donut as I read the entry.

    The pics caught me off-guard and I inhaled the powder and it coated the back of my throat!

    Maybe I should include a banner:
