Skyward #1

Skyward #1 comic reviewSet in the not-so-distant future the world is upside down. Well, not literally upside down. Just… up in the air. Gravity has stopped, and you are now only as safe as far as you tether or to the nearest solid object to grab onto.

For Willa Fowler the city is an adventure, taking a job as a delivery girl (and all kinds of risks to get the package there on time), but she craves more. Tied to the city where she has always lived, Willa wants to journey further out into the world (which the absence of gravity makes problematic). While such an undertaking is something her overprotective father understands, it isn’t something he can condone. However, he does have a way to fix the world.

Action Comics #1000

Action Comics #1000 comic reviewThe oldest comic around sets an unprecedented milestone with its 1,000th issue. Action Comics #1000 features a collection of variant covers of Superman over the years to go with a collection of stories from various writers and artists.

The story likely to get the most publicity is the one to close-out the comic. In the only story that also features Supergirl, Jim Lee provides the art for Brian Michael Bendis’ first DC story that not only confirms Superman will no longer be going commando but also introduces a new villain who claims to have ties to the destruction of Krytpon. It’s an intriguing opening for Bendis, who has already won me over with the argument that Superman just isn’t Superman without those red shorts. Now if only we could convince Batman of the same.

Dan Jurgens offers a story of an uncomfortable Clark dealing with Superman Day while other heroes fight off an alien attack across the globe. Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason deliver a tale of Superman reliving various past eras thanks to an attack by Vandal Savage that showcases a few different looks from the hero’s past.

Darth Vader #14

Darth Vader #14 comic reviewFollowing the death of an Imperial Envoy on Mon Cala, Governor Tarkin‘s forces under the command of Darth Vader have invaded the planet and laid siege to above-ground cities. When diplomacy fails to halt the invading Imperial forces, the king decides to go to extreme measures and destroy every single surface city on the planet rather than allow them to be taken by the Empire and used as staging areas against the rest of the planet deep below the ocean’s surface.

With the storyline taking place on Mon Cala, we’re given a look at a younger Admiral Ackbar as part of the group responsible for the protection of the planet which should please fans of the character.
