Superman: War of the Worlds Reviews
Aunque los Elseworlds de DC me suelen gustar bastante, este no es de los rompedores. El dibujo de Lark le va como un guante, pero el guión de Thomas no es gran cosa. Un tebeito con aroma vintage que se olvida rápido.
The premise of this 64 page prestige comic: The Golden Age cast of Superman are inserted into the War of the Worlds in a story that evokes the Orson Welles broadcast which occurred 1938, the year that Superman was first introduced. The Superman of this story is pure Golden Age with Lois and Clark at the Daily Star rather than the Planet and with George Taylor as editor rather than Perry White.Superman appears on the scene as Martians are invading. This is literally his first appearance as he fights the Martian, he and Lois encounter a scientist named Luthor (who wasn't actually introduced until 1940 but this wouldn't be an Elseworld's Superman book without Luthor appearing.)Overall, while the book isn't essential reading but it's fun. Roy Thomas is probably the only writer who could pull this off with his extensive knowledge of Golden Age comics. Other than the inclusion of Luthor, the story captures the spirit of the era perfectly. Michael Lark's art is really well-done and captures the feel of the era. While, I'm not certain about Thomas' decision to set this at the beginning of Superman's career, it does create a contrast between two aliens on Earth that works powerfully in the story. Overall, a good work by one of comic's legendary writers.
A beautiful mix of the appropriate era's Superman and the famed Orson Wells radio broadcast panic. The ironic end note, once the Martians have defeated in the 1940s, having killed about 60 million people, that no one can imagine what other calamity could cause such destruction, is rather pleasing.
An "Elseworlds" Superman story with an old-fashioned look & an old-fashioned soul, but a very post-modern look at xenophobia. It physically hurts to watch Lois being repelled by Kal-El's alien heritage, after decades of uncompromising acceptance. A rather remarkable and poignant piece of work.
Very interesting mix of the 2 story lines. Superman fights the H. G. Wells martins. Very recommended
