The Super-Man #2 [Super For The Soul 3]

I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about for the third post.  At first I thought I might write about the Suicide Squad movie and Rebirth comic,.. but instead, I decided to do a follow-up to the previous post with the second issue of The New Super-Man.

The New Super-Man #1 [Super For The Soul 2]
What is “Super For The Soul?”

The New Super-Man #2
Publisher: DC Comics (Rebirth initiative)
Release Date: August 10, 2016
Written by Gene Luen Yang
Pencils by Viktor Bogdanovic

“Made in China” part two! The New Super-Man must face off against the Justice League of China? When Kenan Kong was imbued with the powers of Superman, he didn’t waste any time using them!

With the second issue, already we see that even though Kenan’s father slightly represented who Jonathan Kent was to Clark Kent/Superman, Kenan’s father is very different.  His father may have some of the ideals of a super hero like Superman, but he doesn’t see it as something that he’s instilling in his son.  Jonathan     Kent was there for Clark every step of the way as a child to help mold him to who he became.  Jonathan knew Clark was someone very special and that he would grow up to do great things for the planet.  Kenan’s father is absent and needs to be convinced that his son could perhaps one day embody the things he believes in.

Lady and the Tramp [Jaysen Headley’s Vault Disney #15 Companion]

This week I’m talking out of my ass about Lady and the Tramp.  I saw this when I was really little.  I think I actually saw it projected from a projector.

Vault Disney #15: Lady and the Tramp


The following are notes as I barely watched the film, and now adding in some annotations.  Missing the of whole point watching it YAY!  This in a way is an exercise in writing.  Bad writing, or just writing for the sake of writing for yourself without being judgmental.  If you actually want a post about this film that’s constructed with thought and provides a review of value (here’s that self-judgement), you should read Jaysen Headley’s post on Lady and the Tramp!  Continue reading Lady and the Tramp [Jaysen Headley’s Vault Disney #15 Companion]

PETER PAN [Jaysen Headley’s Vault Disney #14 Companion]

Peter Pan, the man, or the boy… that is the embodiment of being young at heart, the spirit of children.  I’ve always believed in being child-like,.. just not childish.  Peter, is a bit immature looking back.

This will be a “free-write” from commentary that I made while watching the film.  If you want a full in-depth review and history on the film, I highly recommend Jaysen’s post ….
