An "Action"-packed start for Donner

Action Comics” No. 844 hit comic-book shops this week; it’s the first issue by “Superman: The Movie” director Richard Donner and his former production assistant, well-known comics writer Geoff Johns.

The issue, illustrated by Andy Kubert, makes for an interesting start to Donner and Johns’ first arc. It’s centered around an apparent new arrival from Krypton, a young boy who may take Superman’s place as “The Last Son of Krypton.” There’s some definite influence from Donner’s movie, including Superman talking to Jor-El in the Fortress of Solitude and a shot of Clark Kent pushing up his glasses that looks just like Christopher Reeve doing the same. Next issue promises a twist on the classic character of Bizarro.
