Agents of Shield: Show Review

agents-of-shield-official-poster-smallWell it was an interesting start to hopefully a long and fruitful series. “Agents of shield” doesn’t try to pose as anything similar to Avengers, outside of being an origin story, which I thought was a nice way to separate itself from the above mentioned film. Whereas Avengers is about the culmination of heroes for the first time for a global assault, A.O.S. is more a look at the world from a more civilian point of view.

Taking a page from the marvel comic’s way of operating; you don’t have to have really seen anything prior to the show to understand what’s happening. However a possible re-watches of Thor, Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Captain America: The First Avenger might do you well for small hints and trivia (like Lola).

Given that it was a pilot I didn’t grade it hard on the acting but some parts didn’t seem to gel completely. But it was obvious as to why some lines were delivered and written to be a certain way especially once the climatic confrontation came about. At its core Marvel strives to tell compelling heartfelt stories in its formal medium. This was no different. I really enjoyed the type of dynamic they introduced to the show through “Michael Peterson” just hard on his luck and trying to do right. It really was an easy way to have many types of people, not just nerd’s gems and fan boys, connect with the show.

As far as comic book shows go, I’m putting Arrow at the top still followed by Smallville then A.O.S. Only time will tell if that changes.

With Arrow on the way and Big Bang Theory on Thursdays it’s a great mid week for primetime shows and fan boys in general.

Smallville Season 11 #42

Argo:cover

In Antarctica, five researchers are frantically running away from what appears to be some kind of monster.  Out of thin air, arrives Skeets in a fully developed sphere form (season 10 had it as just a voice… budgets are a hell of a thing) informing the researchers that Booster Gold is coming to save them. The researchers insist on having Ted Kord’s “Kid with the bug on his back” a.k.a Blue Beetle, to save them. Suddenly the monster’s presence is upon the group and Booster is off to the rescue. As Booster begins his assault on the monster, his Legion Ring begins to alert him about “Legion Protocol six” before shutting down by noticing he isn’t a Legion member. As he falls, he’s quickly swept into a more hands-on fight with the creature, luckily for him; Blue Beetle arrives and saves the day. As the researchers thank BB, BG talks with Skeets who suggests he sees someone more understanding of this protocol. In the apartment of Clark and Lois, the two are showering and discussing her trip to Africa for her article on the “Angel of the Plateau”. As his protective side begins to take over, Lois reminds him of how Franklin Stern won’t allow him to leave for extended periods of time. She asks if he will be okay though given the most recent loss, he says he’ll hold up. Clark gets an alert about a fire, gives a kiss to Lois and darts off. Sometime later, at the Daily Planet, Cat Grant beckons at the arrival of Clark and shows him to the guest in her office, none other than, BG. The two go to the rooftop where BG hands him the ring and transports them to the 31st century, where a statue of Superman is destroyed and air/space ships own the skies. Clark definitely isn’t in (his) Kansas anymore… To be continued.

I enjoy that they, or just Bryan, are keeping up with the series’ side stories. Even to the minor detail. Having the researchers from Ted Kord, WayneTech and Michael Holt’s companies was a nice nod to ongoing readers. This issue definitely felt like a “next chapter” or phase was really starting. To what end obviously remains to be seen, but Miller seems to really be good at writing the first chapter of arcs. All of them to date have a great balance of character introductions and cliff hanging endings. The manner in which Lois and Clark make up for lost time and push the PG boundary is greatly appreciated to acknowledge the children who might read this and the adults.

jk0002NEW ARTIST ALERT Daniel HDR sounds like a media file name but either way it’s not bad as far as art work goes. It’s still early but it seems pretty dope. I was intrigued by the HDR part, mostly because I love the technique and try to use it when I can. The HDR style is evident as best as one could hope for I’d think for a comic book. It’s not crazy strong but it is there. Given that we’re headed to the 31st century, it’s a nice touch to have a bit of a up to the times style. Its no Steve McNiven or Jim Lee, but given everything it’s a nice step forward in quality, let’s see how long this lasts.

Smallville Season 11 #41

Smallville - Season 11 #41Valkyrie: Over the Atlantic Lois is flying out to Africa for an assignment (via plane), when a child inquires about how Superman is like, then the flight attendants, and slowly begins to see (if she didn’t already) that she is a celebrity mostly in part to the fact that Superman is tied to her name in more than one way. Then one of the flight attendants gets fresh. In London (not even sure why London I must of missed that somewhere) Perry White gets a call that Lois has been taken off the plane due to fighting the attendant, and the air marshal. She jokes about not worrying if she’s on the no fly list, “there’s always a safer way to travel”. Near Tinasha, Africa is where Lois begins her assignment about an “Angel of the Plateau” by asking U.N. soldiers. They respond by saying the vigilante is “unquestionably badass” they continue to explain that due to warlords taking children, villagers in return get protection, but the children don’t make it home when the angel strikes. Moments later their U.N. convoy is ambushed (of course it is…) and as the gunfight ensues Lois finds herself in mishap after mishap until finally her Angel arrives. Who turns out to be… Lana….? To Be Continued.

This is nit picking, but in the story, Lois goes on talking about her ass, then there’s clear ass shot (which in all 200+ episodes of Smallville, an ass shot was rare. There’s maybe 6 in all 10 seasons) AND IT’S THE FLATTEST ASS I’VE EVER SEEN.  Granted it’s a 2D medium, but there’s ways around that to give Lois SOME booty. Granted the Actor may not have much but you done changed up so much what’s wrong with giving her some real booty?Smallville - Season 11 #41 019

Anyway I FINALLY GOT MY PRAYERS ANSWERED! Cat Staggs does the interior for the book and its damn near amazing. I wonder if this was to “mimic” the last time we saw Lana, when she gets the suit she currently has on to save Lois. If I’m not mistaken, Allison Mack directed that episode and it was very pro female. The art work is very detailed and really captures the look of the actress’ faces in different situations. It’s a bit of a step forward in quality, but this doesn’t take away at all from the look of the Haunted arc Artist. The inker (if not Catt) did miss some spots. I can still see some sketch lines. Intended maybe, but it just looks cheap if that’s a style. I think I noticed a Mr. Terrific nod in the opening pages. I’m impressed with the look of her first interior work for the book. If she is on another book previously, then I’m sure others are used to this style but as a first time and, given her clear talent I’m a tad let down.

I like seeing this side to Lois, her bob. She often gets lost in the role of being the damsel in distress, to emphasize the love story between her and Clark. So her being away on a solo mission is dope. To what end obviously remains to be seen, but for what it’s worth, this is the best side story so far. It touches on the fact that everyone knows who she is and how important she is to the public’s impression of Superman, and how she deals with keeping his secret. Favourite part of the issue is Lana’s reveal. If it weren’t for the cover, you’d have never guessed it was really her.

Smallville Season 11 #40

Haunted: Smallville - Season 11 039 coverHigh above the skies of Metropolis Clark calls Lois and tells her his plans to honour the memory of the Late Impulse. As he heads to the destination, Clark asks if she uncovered anything about Lex, she responds by saying when you fly by I’ll fill you in on what I’ve discovered. “I don’t think I’ll be doing that anymore” Knock, Knock, Knock, Knock “Honey… I’m home.” Clark surprises Lois and then briefly describes how he’s been fixed. But there’s always a job for Superman. At Lexcorp, Lex enters his office to be met by Superman & Green Arrow who confront him. Lex tries to figure out how Supes got so close and as he checks his app, he realizes that he, Superman, has been washed clean of the radiation. As Lex tires of their presence, he asks why the heroes have made his acquaintance, the pair address the fact that Lex has taken something… rather someone in the form of one Tess Mercer. Trying to avoid them, Superman walks away, only to be stopped by Lois. As Green Arrow begins to pull up a taser dart, Lois hits Lex with a knockout blow. Smallville - Season 11 038 As he comes to, the next morning, Otis finds him. As he fully comes too, Lex asks where the hell his sister is. As he begins to look around, he sees an envelope that Supes left for him “Thanks for the memories”. At Watchtower, Dr. Hamilton programs some kind of hard light hologram. As that excitement dies down Clark and Chloe finally catch up. Chloe, understandably, is unnerved by the memories from her doppelgänger and the pending crisis. As she explains, she lets slip that she’s pregnant. Clarks reaction is very much a Super(man) reaction. As she continues to explain why she and Ollie need to leave Metropolis Clark interrupts her saying he fully understands a parents need and want to go to great lengths to protect their kin to ensure a safe upbringing. Referencing Jor-El and Johnathan Kent in that way, she has his blessing to do what needed to be done. The End of Haunted.

Jorge Jimenez does a lot of good again. Even though, his faces are a tad inconsistent, he does great work with capturing emotions, both from the characters and from the tone of the scene. If there were ever to be a go to artist I’d seriously choose this guy. From the opening page to the final moment it’s framed and flows very nicely. Noteworthy scene is in Lexcorp. The style is very dark due to lack of lights and it added more to that scene. The added grain at the start of the scene was dope. Loved the facial expression on Lex’s face as Lois boxed him in it. It would seem the only character in this comic book so far, that is drawn closer to the character’s actor is Chloe (Allison Mack) and it’s not a bad thing just sometimes I’d like to see Tom Welling more often. Not since Guardian have I seen a total likeness. But for the most part, we do still see the actors and I’m OK with that.

Miller does a nice job of finishing this episode. Helps to tie it back into the series finale where Chloe retells a story to her son (spoiler alert?). Having the contrast of Chloe taking on the sacrifices similar to the two sets of parents Clark has was a nice send off. Not that she’s gone but it’s nice to see how much her character has matured from that nosey little reporter to the keeper of secrets and standing up for what’s right and now a mother. I’m curious to see where he takes her next. Bringing back Tess is even more interesting because she’s a computer program. Kind of taking up where she left off in the show. She’s back working at Watchtower and helping the team. I’m interested in seeing if she has any new powers as a result of her current form. Smallville - Season 11 #40 004 Rating : 4.5 Rating:

Smallville Season 11 #39

Smallville - Season 11 039 coverHaunted:

As the Speed Demon looks at the recently arrived Impulse, the two exchange words. Impulse quickly grabs Clark and tells him that he needs all of Clark’s speed in order to defeat him. As Impulse gets him to a “safe” distance, Clark begins to try and reason with him to not do this by himself.  Impulse confirms that the figures he saw before arriving to Las Vegas (last ish) have told him how to beat this Black Flash. Just as quickly as he arrived he leaves Clark in the desert to take on the Speed Demon, but Clark doesn’t like to be put in the corner so he fly’s back to try and join him, remembering the first time he let Bart get away (back in season four, episode 5: “Run”). As Clark begins to reach him he calls out to him asking him to slow down, he whispers “Not this time, amigo.” Reaching the Speed Demon he suddenly stops and this bright yellow light engulfs the area and then all of a sudden lightening strike causes a thunderous boom that seems to level Las Vegas. When Clark Finally gets to the site, he’s met with a crater the shape of the Flash logo.

Back in another flash back memory, Chloe relives the first meeting she had with her E2-Chloe doppelgänger when they had almost touched and repulsed each other like a powerful magnet. When E2-Chloe landed she met a Monitor who told her that even though she survived the destruction of her Earth, that Earth1 (E1… “our” Earth) will meet the same end. The monitor then explains why this is happening which is simple. The monitors maintain order. Existence is chaos. As Chloe wakes she hears Clark say that Impulse is gone. Sometime later at the home of the JSA (Justice Society of America) Jay Garrick talks with Superman, who assures Garrick, it’s not his fault (although yes it is lol). Moments later, Dr. Hamilton tells him that whatever borrowed speed force he was exposed to cleansed him of any radiation Lex was using to track Superman… To Be Continued.

Smallville - Season 11 038


This was all kind gut wrenching. The apparent death of Impulse was shocking as ever. Given the hidden messages like “you haven’t met them yet” when telling Clark about the “little birdies” or the fact of the logo and even remembering that this is, still a comic. It’s a nerd/geekSmallville - Season 11 039 (2013) (K6 of Ultron-Empire) 07 soap opera, I’m sure he will be back. But Kudos to Miller who crafted a thrilling end to this story arc/chapter… episode.

 

This one (chapter and issue) has the most emotions but not overly done/over the top as was a couple issues ago. Nice touch adding the scenes from season four to contrast the death of Bart in this issue.

Jimenez AGAIN, knocked the ball out of the park with this one. He really captured the needed flair to pull off the throwback scenes from that “Run” episode. With this arc, I’m even more curious to see the script for this issue. Capturing the boyish charm Kyle Gallner had in his portrayal. The art was well placed for the entire Las Vegas related content. The ending with Chloe to bring it all home was nicely done with both the art, and timing. Then Clark’s expression at the very end was a nice touch.

This was a nice end to a character, if even for now. Maybe it’s just me, but I love when a hero goes out the hero doing and using his powers the right way. Mad happy with this arc. And that CLARK CAN FINALLY BE CLARK… well the disguise of Clark.Smallville - Season 11 039

Smallville Season 11 #38

Smallville - Season 11 038 (2013) (Digital) (K6 of Ultron-Empire) 00Haunted: Ollie calls a press conference, much like the one set up by Martha Kent in her pursuit to stop the vigilante registration act, where his trap is set to have Chloe shoot Clark Luther. After revealing that meteor rock “harms” Ultraman, he also tells the crowd before him that Clark Luther is in fact Ultraman.

Smallville - Season 11 038 Ollie’s press conference is interrupted by the stage shattering landing by Ultraman, he grabs Ollie who mouths to Chloe to take the shot. Failing to act, Ultraman snaps Ollie’s neck. Here and now on Earth 1, Chloe is clearly upset about the relived memory. None the less, duty calls and she says she has a fix on Impulse. He seems to be everywhere, but in actuality, he’s running the globe, and passing through the speed storms collecting speed as he goes. In the outskirts of Las Vegas, the people Superman saved question what their supposed to do, as the ground begins to shake. in the city of Las Vegas, Superman moves in to do a haymaker, which he hits but no matter what he does, the speed demon seems to just come back as fast as he can move. Getting the upper hand on Superman he seems to be ready to deal the “death” blow when impulse arrives…  to be continued…

We’ve seen this before

Smallville - Season 11 038

Brian Miller almost seems to drop the ball with the Earth 2 story, but then he offs Ollie, which is a little unexpected. However, he writes a much better story when it comes to the Impulse side of things. This had that epic mid show, right at the top of its climax commercial feeling to it by issues end. I’m curious to see where he goes with the other figures given that he’s building/tapping into the “Speed Force”. As far as written action scene’s go, whatever he suggested to Jimenez, THIS WAS GREAT. Had a lot of what you’d like to see in a comic and if the budget was allowed, would be seen on the show (But we all know that wouldn’t happen)

As I said, Jimenez did an amazing job this issue. The placement of characters combined with his anime like style was just nothing short of impressive in this issue. I’d welcome him back on the book in a heartbeat. Hell I’d even welcome him on a Marvel book (either an ultimate title or a spider-man story out of continuity). The only flaw is when he does a wide shot of characters which then look small (so maybe we could call it a zoomed out shot), for obvious reasons they just look like they were done by a child. However, the more standard shots are worth the money!

Easily the best drawn scene  in this chapter losts of intensity and very clear depiction of the anime style I've been in love with for this arc

Smallville - Season 11 #37 001Batman and Martian Manhunter are ambushed by the White Martian, Batman leaves to find something he can use against it leaving MM to create a distraction. The two Martians communicate telepathically and continue to fight to a standstill where she confesses to committing her crimes out of hate and fear. Batman returns to help by questioning her, using the memory of Dr. King Faraday (discovered about him through telepathy), to his advantage to subdue her rampage and have her see a more peaceful coexistence . She explains she used Faraday to protect her as Faraday used her to remind her or his fallen daughter thanks to her shape shifting abilities and says her name is M’Gann M’Orzz. Later, in Gotham, Bruce explains to Barbra that he let Jon Jones decide what to do with her. The two then begin to train. Meanwhile in Metropolis, the two aliens go to Jones’ home where he find out from his neighbours that Superman had repaired the damage. He claims that he and his “niece” need to go away for a bit in space so the two morph into their natural looks and head off to Mars.

The end… For now.

Smallville - Season 11 036 (2013) (Digital) (K6 of Ultron-Empire) 01

Well, Effigy is done. I still don’t entirely get why it was called as such. Maybe I should read it again. Anyway, when you take away the title, it’s all really just an origin to a character that for the most part is still very new in the regular DC universe. It’s cool that we got a new hero in Smallville lore, but we already have so many who are way underused as is. I don’t know how popular this character is, it’s rare that I see anyone who is a fan of Jon Jones outside of the Justice League cartoon show. So adding his “niece” kinda just seems ill timed but yet still logical. Random thought, I don’t think he even has a multi verse counterpart, like how Superman Has Ultraman in normal comics continuity.

This isn’t the best story that Bryan has told nor the worst. It was nice to see how much Bruce cares for Barbara, and how he would react to all the optimism from one of Metropolis’ boys in blue (Jon Jones is a cop detective there) I’d be interested in seeing the script work for this issue as well just to see the freedom he gave the artist.

Axel Gimenez seems to have given up in these last two issues. It’s still good, but it’s nothing to rave about. Though, it may not be entirely his fault. The colours felt very dull this issue. It’s not the worst I’ve seen, it’s just boring.

Best set of panels and art...
Best set of panels and art…

I’m hoping that the use of Megan Morse is very good and has an important role in future issues. Then if not, this was a major waste of time.

Smallville - Season 11 036 (2013) cover Smallville - Season 11 036 (2013) (Digital) (K6 of Ultron-Empire) 01Effigy: Continuing from where the issue___ left us, it continues with very brief summary of how his civilization by what earthlings would call a race war. He takes us from that point in time to when he first met Jor-el, explaining the duties he carried out in the name of justice to being Clark’s guardian, to then being a hero in his own right. At the Batcave, Alfred tells Batman that Barbra is now up and about. Inside of Watchtower, Batman and Martian Manhunter figure out that the “white martian” is in Colorado, in the Rockies, where a once top secret government agency known as Checkmate once resided. Once there, the two begin their hunt for the violent Mars alien. When inside, they find a rocket, a dead body clutching a cell phone and a doll. They determined the decay on the body is roughly a year old. Batman pulls the video from the phones memory. The John Doe is revealed to be one “Dr. King Faraday” who urges someone to “Take care of his daughter” and as he says that, the “White Martian” looks down upon their heads… To be continued.

Smallville - Season 11 036 (2013)

This particular arc is really boring and forced, that’s just my honest opinion… But I will explain a bit of the book outside of my feelings. Honestly, this story just feels rushed and a far reach to expand the characters of Smallville. But Miller finds a way to make it slightly intriguing. Keeping the pace up with nice banter between MM (Martian Manhunter) and Batman helps. I got a very nice feeling that this is a Kevin convoy like Batman. Let’s face it, he’s the best Batman to ever be Batman. From what I’ve read online this does seem to be very close to the original story of the “white martian” but set within the realm that is Smallville

Artistically, this isn’t the best we’ve seen from Axel and crew but they do get some points in. I don’t think I have one favourite scene or panel layout. It all seems very straightforward (I think that’s happening a lot now with this book), but everything does have it’s moments.

Smallville - Season 11 035 (2013) (Digital) (K6 of Ultron-Empire) 00 Smallville - Season 11 033 (Digital) (K6 of Ultron-Empire) 01Haunted: at a Metropolis bar, Otis is  greeted with the presence of Lois Lane, who just finished talking Psimon in his cell. The reporter, begins to ask Otis questions about his now former boss, Lex and what he knows about Tess being in his head. Met with a unhelpful answer, she leaves to find someone who is more comfortable to him to speak with. Barbara Gordon in Gotham, is now up and about since her alien attack, (click link for more details) and is willing to help Lois with her investigation but not as Nightwing, but as herself, who just so happens to be Bruce Wayne’s assistant. Barbara rushes off to Metropolis by bat-plane to meet Otis, in Las Vegas, Clark is gradually getting faster and faster, which he needs to, in order to get the attention of the “Black Flash”. In doing so, he’s preventing the “Speed storms” from claiming any more lives.
In a “hail Mary” move, the Black Racer, tries to weaken the fake Eifle Tower to fall from its foundations and on top of the innocent bystanders, but that was a job for Superman to take care of. The two begin battle as the story moves back to Jay Garrick & Bart Allen who have a mini, if you will, a Flash to Flash moment.
Then Bart races off to finish the fight he never asked for… to be continued

Wow. That was a terrible scene between the two Flashes. Bart feels like he’s always alone and then Jay starts saying the speed force, “isn’t just what fuels us, it’s what binds us”? Really?! That’s so out of the blue. Why does Bart feel like that is my first question. He has no need to. Granted, I don’t know the man’s story but come on. I think that’s where this arc gets me annoyed. That one scene. For the most part, this one has been the series best (so far), but that scene ruined a lot of the hope for that. Otherwise a just below average written issue by Bryan Q. Miller. And I mean below average of the size equal to the space between the stem, and the dot of a lower case i. I mean that in terms of the words on paper mind you, because the look of each scene is pretty incredible.Smallville - Season 11 035 (2013) (Digital) (K6 of Ultron-Empire) 05 Smallville - Season 11 035 (2013)

My favourite moment that Jorge designed is when Superman saves this dude and gives him a list of instructions. Just a well designed look to the character. This wasn’t his own best showing, but it’s far from his worst. I also very much enjoyed the look of the Barbra Gordon scene. The style was very appropriate.
