You know, landis really won me over with this issue. Easily the best one yet.
Anyone else enjoying american alien?
greatest fight of all time
deathstroke slipped him a neurotoxin thinking he's bruce wayne
It's easily the comfiest comic I've ever read. I pioneering feat that only The Maximum Landis himself could achieve. Truly, we are blessed to have him grace the medium with his phenomenal talent.
I'm really enjoying American Alien. Manapul is doing an issue as well.
The cries of /tv/ crossposters who hate Landis for whatever autistic reason is entertaining as well.
has the best cheetah as well
>The cries of /tv/ crossposters who hate Landis for whatever autistic reason is entertaining as well.
He's a talentless hack riding off the success of Chronicle, and his dad is literally Man of Murder.
While I hate the guy, I do agree with some of his opinions though and he's been putting out some quality Superman, though. I've been entertained by every issue so far.
it's basically an elseworlds, yeah. each of the issues has a different artist and is a stand-alone slice-of-life type of thing where we see clark at different stages.
Issue 1-Kid clark learns to fly, pretty sweet 7/10
Issue 2-Teenage clark does some grimdark shit 5/10
Issue 3-clark gets confused for bruce wayne at wayne's birthday party, hilarity ensues 9/10
I'm loving it in spite of my disliking of Landis. If people who call Superman a Mary Sue or hate silver agey stuff demand we have an imperfect/human/relateable Clark whose life is not full of sunshine and rainbows, but generally good with formative incidents that lead to him becoming Superman, I'd prefer it be more like this than MoS. Even at it's darkest, Clark still feels like the Clark Kent I know and love.
InB4 someone posts that time teenage Clark Kent bit off more than he could chew, let a situation get out of hand, accidentally lost control of his heat vision and unintentionally amputated a murderer and dog killer's arms off with it, which led to his learning a lesson about being careful in the future.
>nobody likes you
>everyone left you
>they're all out without you
This might as well be DTV animated too, but every issue has a different artist. Obviously they'd have to tone down some things but I have no issue with Clark doing them in the comic.
Krypton hasn't been mentioned once, has it? And it's all on Clark deciding what he needs to be. It's refreshing after the Jor-El-centric movies.
>yfw cheetah took Superman's virginity.
Wait so you're comparing it to a high speed bullet, and you're complaining that it didn't penetrate Deathstrokes armor, who wears probably high tech bullet protection armor? So yeah it makes sense that the "high speed bullet" powered flick didn't penetrate it.
Ouch, poor Lana. I doubt he has complete control here, especially with the mid-orgasm thrust 'get as deep as possible' impulse. She must have been black and blue and walking bow-legged for weeks after that night.
You know what would make this scene even better? If Barbara was in her cheetah form when it happened.
Bruce has been missing since he was 12. It's all just hobo adventures and ninja detective training unless he actually left home instead of disappearing the same night his parents got shot.
i don't think "missing" was meant literally, just that he's a shut-in who's never seen in public. obviously the parties are there to keep the illusion that bruce wayne is out and about
You can probably calculate the force the finger would have to generate to lauch the man and derive its speed from it.
It's enough for that finger to plain cut the dude's chest wide open, I would assume.
But then again
>working anything like RL ever
High speed bullets tend to penetrate and go straight. When hitting a living target, they tend to punch straight through. Low speed bullets have a tendency to 'tumble' in the air and end up doing more damage because they twist and bounce around inside.
People who care about shit like that have long since established that superstrength of this sort works by contact telekinesis of some kind, which papers over the cracks in this kind of scenario and all the other "lift a plane by the wing without the rest snapping off" kinds of things that crop up
He's posted some previews on instagram
Don't get me wrong, Landis is an extreme annoying asshole, and he openly admits to being one. It's just who he is. But it just so happens that most of his ideas and the things he rights are fucking great. Respect given where respect is due.
>Clark's seated on top of an office building some ways away from Titans Tower. He has a short-wave radio in one hand, and a half-eaten burger in the other.
>He brings the radio up after swallowing a mouthful of fast food.
>"Dick, ease up on your initial thrusts. Pace yourself, don't - there you go. Better."
>He moves to have another bite of his food, chewing slowly as he watches. After a minute or two, he speaks into the radio again.
>"Dick, come on. Mix it up a little. Remember what I told you about foreplay? It's a matter of position..."
>"Don't shake your head. It can be done, trust me - reverse cowgirl does wonders. Go on. She'll like it, just ask...see?"
>"Alright, Dick...hang on, Dick, don't..."
>Clark sighs, rubbing the bridge of his nose.
>"Alright, maybe cowgirl was a little much for your first time. Take ten. Or fifteen - is she still going?"
Eh that's cool for the offer, I meant more was going to actually buy it with dollarydoos to support it somehow, I really dig what i've seen. I just tend to generally wait for TPs on books im into, but that has the disadvantage of post-run support generally.
