Action Comics #868

Action Comics #868
Written by Geoff Johns and Illustrated by Gary Frank
Published by DC Comics

I liked how Superman woke up on that ship and he had all of those tubes and things sticking in him. And then when he woke up he ripped all of the stuff out and pulled a real long tube out of his throat and spit all this black stuff out.

It was cool how that ship had all these weird things in it. There were all these bubble filled with people that were captured like Superman. There were tiny cities in bottles. Then there was this huge monster that looked kind of like a wolf or a dog and it attacked Superman but Superman was too strong and just punched its tooth out.

Brainiac was cool, too. He was bigger and stronger than Superman. My favorite part was when Superman and Brainiac were fighting and Superman uses his heat vision to cut Brainiac’s face. I like how Superman was different powers to try and win the fight.

I didn’t like the parts at the newspaper. That was kind of boring, but Supergirl was cool. She just didn’t get to do much. It was a little hard to figure out what was happening when Superman was sleeping or dreaming.

I liked the art on the book. Brainiac and the inside of his ship looked great. It looked cool when Brainiac’s ship was up in the sky over the city, too. And I thought that Superman was drawn really well. He looked almost just like the guy in the movies.

I think this is going to be a good story because Brainiac is a good bad guy for Superman. He’s really strong and he’ll be able to fight back against Superman and make it a tough fight.

My Rating: 8 out of 10
