Superwoman, Volume 2 Review

    Good art but a meandering story. Natasha's brother has been kidnapped and that isn't the main story in the book , just a subplot with no urgency on trying to find a little boy who's been taken by a monster. Instead it's about Lana who's all wishy-washy about her powers in the wake of Superman: Reborn. The series lacks any kind of direction, with all these flashbacks to different time periods that don't really connect with the rest of the story. John Henry and Natasha are severely underused.

    Ouch this series...World: The art is okay for the most part. I think the facial expressions are a but off making the emotions a bit wonky. Also I hate Natasha's suit, it's just ugly, please redesign it. The world building is fine for what it is. It's trying hard to establish a place for Lana to be in since Rebirth and overall all the callbacks to her past is good, but it's choppy and the writing does it no favours.Story: You gotta walk before you run and this series does not understand that.

Superman Red Son is good because it needs Good Superman to be a mirror for it. Here Lana is unstable and all over the place but since Rebirth we've not seen normal Superwoman and we are already seeing the all over the place and play on Superwoman. That's why this book is failing. It's all over the place and writing is choppy and it does not even have a foundation built before playing on all these concepts. This series and the story had been so disappointing. Characters: Lana is all over the place. One issue she's overcome her anxiety the next issue it's something else. I don't need a perfect character, flaws makes for real and interesting characters. Inconsistent characters are just because if poor writing. This is poor writing. Irons has nothing to do except pine and Natasha is wasted (she needs to be on the Teen Titans). The villain this story....zzz don't care. Writing is so bad at the moment it's making me sad. Lana deserves better. Onward to the next book! *read individual issues*

    This is insane in the only way that comic books can be. An example of how superhero comic books can offer something different to blockbusters, while also revealing what makes the movies such duds.

So, dawning the Insect Queen Armor (really confused about where this came from... don't remember it at all), she begins to explore her powers again, the armor having retained her abilities.In addition to power rediscovery, most of this Volume revolves around an issue that has come up with Lana's boyfriend, John Henry Irons (known to us as Steel) and his family. John's brother Crash is a known criminal, primarily as an arms dealer. When his youngest son Zeke is abducted by a creepy monster known as Skyhook, tense family issues and gang warfare are the norm, but is Lana's recovery taking up too much of Steel's focus? Will Crash back down from war? Obviously, Lana regains her powers ("they weren't in the armor, but buried deep inside me all along"...) and takes down Skyhook, but the slightly confusing elements of the story made this one feel slightly incomplete and a little hard to follow at times. Still somewhat good, but I don't know where this story can go next. I'll hang on for another Volume.

    Man, the quality on this really took a dive. The first two issues were attempting to reconcile the book with a some kind of new continuity that was apparently established elsewhere, and were pretty difficult to parse. And then the last three issue, about Lana and the Ironses (Irins? Ironpoda?) going after a villain that kidnapped Zeke, John Henry’s nephew and Nat’s little brother, were somehow worse. The Atomic Skull is going straight and behaving very oddly for seemingly no reason (is he suppos Man, the quality on this really took a dive.

Without Phil Jimenez (who wrote one of the issues trying to retcon without retconning), this book floundered quite badly.

    I enjoy Lana Lang as Superwoman. I think giving Lana powers was a fresh take on the character. She adds needed diversity to a universe with more male heroes than female. I am glad she got her powers back after the end of volume one. Though I did not enjoy volume two as much. Perkins tried to make a point that Lana is her own worst enemy, but I find the message lost in the plot. I am glad Lana finds her strength and resolve to continue working as Superwoman.

    Really loved Phil Jimenez's first volume of the series. Was my favorite of the Rebirth books. A new writer takes over here and it's a bit of a disappointment. Still, I like the idea of a super-powered Lana Lang.

    This was an incredibly mopey and depressing graphic novel as Lana Lang does nothing but mope and whine until the very end. It was such a drag fest that they actually made jokes about taking lithium to try and lighten the mood. What a waste of a wonderful character and concept.

    Story is a bit predictable is some places...and jumps around to the point I am not sure if some story elements were introduced before.
