    Just like Bendis used to do over at Marvel, his main books take a bit of a back seat during his big events, becoming companion pieces. So I suggest reading Event: Leviathan before tackling this. I like the renewed focus on the Invisible Mafia. I think they are Bendis's best addition to the Superman books. This book is a bit herky-jerky with Event: Leviathan, Year of the Villain and Naomi: Season One all taking bites of the Superman apple.

This book is a bit herky-jerky with Event: Leviathan, Year of the Villain and Naomi: Season One all taking bites of the Superman apple. But Bendis's attention to snappy dialog keeps this train moving and keeps it interesting. Szymon Kudranski illustrates this whole arc. While I give kudos to DC for keeping one artist on the book, I'm not a fan. Kudranski's art is always sludgy and dark. Someone needs to teach him how lighting works unless he lives in a hole or something.

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. Creator Brian Michael Bendis is far from done infusing his own surge of creativity into the DC universe. Ever since his debut with DC after jumping ships and letting go of Marvel, he has now implemented key characters, worlds, and stories, that all allow the DC universe to embark on a revitalizing new adventure filled with possibilities but also to escape inevitable status quo that is often noted by readers. With his Event Leviathan now unveiled You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. Creator Brian Michael Bendis is far from done infusing his own surge of creativity into the DC universe. Ever since his debut with DC after jumping ships and letting go of Marvel, he has now implemented key characters, worlds, and stories, that all allow the DC universe to embark on a revitalizing new adventure filled with possibilities but also to escape inevitable status quo that is often noted by readers. With his Event Leviathan now unveiled, he can proceed to further explore various sub-plots that have been planted left and right into a fertile land of story-telling ever since the beginning of his DC career. The real question now is to see if he'll be able to give all these stories the proper resolution to make them all worthwhile in the end. What is Superman: Action Comics: Leviathan Hunt about? With Leviathan setting off a chain of events across the world by taking down secret intelligence agencies, Superman finds himself quite busy with the Invisible Mafia now resurfacing amidst all the chaos. It doesn't help when their intangible enforcer known as Red Cloud is back at it again and ready more than ever to tussle with the Man of Steel once again. But Metropolis couldn't be any more of a danger zone without the interference of Lex Luthor himself. Collecting Superman: Action Comics issues #1012-1016, this story arc returns back the spotlight onto the Invisible Mafia and the mysterious Red Cloud villain while additional threats enter the scene. With the issues composing this story arc released during the "Year of the Villain" DC Comics event, it isn't hard to realize a couple of flaws that transpired from this timing. The most notable problem that comes with this story arc is its structure. It's simply all over the place. One second the story brings back Robinson Goode's trials as a rookie journalist at the Daily Planet and Marisol Leone as the Queenpin of Metropolis through her dominion over the Invisible Mafia, and the next second the story teases the arrival of a brand-new devastating designer drug known as Apocalypse, the sudden implication of the split-personality vigilante Rose/Thorn who is somehow connected to the whole Leviathan event, the mysterious resurgence of Lex Luthor and his enigmatic plans, and, of course, the deus ex machina that is Naomi McDuffie. Let's just say that Action Comics is now ACTION Comics. While the story might be floating around a bit too much in this latest arc, struggling to really get some kind of footing, and making the main plot move forward much more efficiently, writer Brian Michael Bendis continues to display his marvelous grasp on Superman's lore and the characters of his universe. From Lois Lane to Perry White, he delivers some of the most hilarious banters yet, especially when the volume in itself is almost exempt from Superman's omnipresence and looks to focus on the supporting cast a lot more. It is also interesting to see writer Brian Michael Bendis continue to incorporate his Wonder Comics characters into the DC universe, especially with Naomi this time around, although her role here, as previously mentioned, is a bit out of the blue. While it does wrap things up for what takes place after Naomi: Season One, her arrival really tossed things into the air, allowing no resolution for all the other sub-plots introduced, including the one where the Red Cloud's origin story was supposed to be revealed. For this story arc, artist Szymon Kudranski was kept from cover to cover, allowing the story to possess a darker, grittier, but much more intimate tone. Although Clark Kent, Superman, and Lois Lane's facial design was disconcerting and not at all to my liking, the overall artistic vision that was prioritized was surprisingly stunning. From blur effects to colour contrasts that allow a certain focus on key characters, the artwork remained authentic and original. Colourist Brad Anderson also continues his phenomenal work as always as well and helps bring to life this story in ways that only images can. It was also refreshing to indulge certain sequences where the panel structure was unconventional, allowing multiple narratives to take place at the same time (e.g. interviews with random citizens while Superman is in the middle of a devastating battle). Speaking of originality, writer Brian Michael Bendis brings another of his quirky touches to each individual issue by including a full-page pseudo-Twitter feed for the Daily Planet that offers insight on events inside the DC universe (e.g. events taking place in other heroes' worlds) but also outside of it (e.g. brand-new stories released by fellow creative teams). Superman: Action Comics: Leviathan Hunt is an entertaining yet cursory story-arc zipping through a myriad of sub-plots centered around villains in the heart of Metropolis.

    I felt this volume was a bit weaker than the past two. I loved the stuff with Niomi and Batman/Superman and so on. All fun. I also enjoy all the cute moments with Lois and Superman. The Levithan storyline bleeds into here and it's presented a bit confusing and that's coming from someone who read the event. I also think the main threat isn't all that scary or interesting. Saying that the art is still fantastic and I enjoy the voice Bendis has for Superman. A 3.5 out of 5. I felt this volume was a bit weaker than the past two.

    A Superman comic without Superman? That's sort of the premise of Bendis' Action Comics and he really does marvelous things with it, not only giving lots of attention to the normally supporting cast but also taking a really human look at Superman.

The Invisible Mafia are the star of this volume, and Bendis nicely advances their storyline, moving the major characters around and having them increasingly interacting with our stars. One of the missteps, however, is to tantalize us with the origin of the Red Mist and then drop it entirely. (I don't even know what's up with that, if I missed a side-story or what.) The last two issues are a somewhat unfortunate clean-up of the Naomi: Season One storyline. I mean, it's not bad, but it definitely does feel like an interruption (and that Naomi doesn't really belong in the gritty storyline of the Invisible Mafia). Still, a nice volume: I hope they have some good collections of Bendis' Action Comics when he's all done.

    This volume was a little frustrating as it seems set during the same time that Event Leviathan was playing out, so having read that already this was a bit redundant and outdated and had the treading water feel. Also, the last bit is just a nothing burger episode that serves only to promote Bendis' Naomi title by introducing her to Superman and Batman. Might as well have thrown some Hostess Fruit Pies in there too. Hopefully, something actually happens in the next volume.

Despite being unimpressed with the plotting, I still enjoyed Bendis' dialogue and the interaction of the characters, so we'll round up to 3 stars.

    The first half of this volume is a weak tie-in story to Event Leviathan. Like that event, the story here is vague, bland, and feeble, with terrible plotting, featuring something involving new Superman villains like the Red Cloud and the newly rebooted Rose and Thorn and their ties to the Invisible Mafia and the battle with Leviathan over the control of Metropolis.

The second half is Bendis's attempt to introduce the larger superhero world to his new character, Naomi. Here she travels to Metropolis and receives some mentorship from both Superman and Batman and gets into a stupid fight. If you were a fan of Naomi: Season One, this will be fun, although nothing major happens here.

    Having already read "Event Leviathan", this seemed pretty straightforward to me, almost like a backstory I didn't need. The only add on to this Volume was the introduction of Naomi, a new superhero coming into the DC fold from Wonder Comics. I might pick up her first Volume and see what I can learn about her. Overall, it seemed pretty standard, not particularly standoutish in much of a way, but wasn't bad. Recommend, for completionists.

    Collects Action Comics #1012-1016 The first three issues in this collection, focusing on the Invisible Mafia, were pretty good, but the final two issues, featuring Naomi, were great. I really like the new character of Naomi, and am glad that Bendis had a chance to create her at DC.

    Bendis...what are you doing? This volume starts very strong, with the mysteries of Leviathan, Year Of The Villain, and the Invisible Mafia colliding quite nicely. There's a lot of set-up and tantalizing answers held out for us to take, and Lex Luthor literally says he'll tell us what the Red Cloud's deal is. And then the story forgets what it's doing in order to completely sidetrack into Naomi stuff instead. Now, I love Naomi. Her origin mini-series was superb. But that's the point.

She had an origin mini-series. We don't need two issues of Action to recap everything that's happened to her, just for her to come in and Worf the Red Cloud to save Superman. It's entirely unnecessary, and jettisons the plot that Bendis had set up out of the window. It's odd that the best parts of Bendis' Action Comics are the bits without Superman in them; the Invisible Mafia, Red Cloud, Leone, and even Rose & Thorn are super interesting here, but again it's all just swept aside instead for Naomi. At the very least, the book looks lovely. Szymon Kudranski's artwork is top notch; he's come a long way since the first time I saw him over on Green Lantern. His people always used to look a little rubbery, but he's improved a lot, and these five issues are a great illustration of that. The bait-and-switch storytelling in this volume falls entirely flat; while Bendis has some great ideas, he doesn't seem to want to follow through with them, and that leaves a bad taste in your mouth once this volume ends, and builds up unnecessary animosity towards a character that most people would likely enjoy otherwise. At least it looks pretty, I guess.

    Leviathan Hunt contains Event Leviathan-, Year of the Villain-, and Naomi-adjacent action, with very little of its own story to tell. Leone, head of the Invisible Mafia, makes some moves as her red cloud counterpart is super-powered by Sith Lord Lex. And Thorn, a random Jekyl/Hyde anti-hero, roams into the picture with little to do. Besides that, it's all other Bendis storylines being shoe-horned into one short volume.

    Have you heard about fill-in issues? Well, this was a fill-in set. 5 issues of nothing, and then Naomi. We’re in some serious trouble when the funniest part of the story is that Batman shows up. Really. Other than that, Metropolis is now Gotham City, and the tone of the book is that of Detective Comics. How Bendis got green-lighted on this is anyone’s guess. Highly not recommended. Read in single issues.

No aborda mucho el tema de Leviathan aunque sea el subtítulo del tomo, eso hace que su lectura sea más accesible.

    The story really gets hijacked by DC trying to introduce this "Naomi" character and make her out to be stronger than Superman. This was also the absolute worst drawing of Lois Lane that I have ever seen. Lois has never been Wonder Woman, but the artist made her look like Etta Candy.

    After the underwhelming Event Leviathan we come to the even more underwhelming Leviathan Hunt, which centres around a dual identity character (Rose / Thorn) and the rather dull Red Cloud character, who is a Red Cloud is someone who can beat up Superman because the author created the character and said that is a thing and we all need to be impressed by that. Oh, and there's some Superman stuff in there, too, but just enough that you can still call it a Superman title. Better to put more energy in After the underwhelming Event Leviathan we come to the even more underwhelming Leviathan Hunt, which centres around a dual identity character (Rose / Thorn) and the rather dull Red Cloud character, who is a Red Cloud is someone who can beat up Superman because the author created the character and said that is a thing and we all need to be impressed by that. Oh, and there's some Superman stuff in there, too, but just enough that you can still call it a Superman title. Better to put more energy into all those creator-made characters instead, apparently. This is a low point of Bendis's Superman run, for which I've been an apologist. I've enjoyed parts of the run, and forgiven its flaws as even the good books are likely to have a few, but this is just weak. It's like his trademark snappy dialogue is seriously on the fritz here. Is it just me? I couldn't fine a decent line in the whole volume. Mostly, I found myself bored and tempted to spin through the pages as the action is retold by Metropolis citizens with a whole lot of apparently "everyday" dialogue, where people say things like "And it was, like, whaaaaaaaat?" Which is fine and all, except that everyday dialogue sucks, so it's not fine at all. The art is pretty decent, even if Superman's face seems to warp into weird shapes every now and again. The artist, whilst talented, has trouble with certain angles of the Big Blue Boy Scout. Similarly, certain characters look like different people when drawn from different sides. I imagine that this will improve with time and further skill development. As it was, I found it distracting from time to time. On the whole, this was just ... dull. I didn't really care much about what was happening, the villains were generally pretty crap (Leone's not bad, but Leviathan is dull and Red Cloud doesn't generate much interest from me), and it doesn't really feel compelling to read from issue to issue. Here's hoping the run will bounce back after this. I'm off now to read Superman Vol. 3: The Truth Revealed. Wish me luck.

    Not as good as the first 2 installments, but still has some moments.

I do like Bendis’ more casual voice for Superman, and his Clark/Lois dynamic. I like Naomi and she pops up too.

I do like Bendis’ more casual voice for Superman, and his Clark/Lois dynamic. I like Naomi and she pops up too. The thing about all his characters sounding the same happens a bit here, but not too distracting for the most part. The idea for the invisible mafia is a good one, but seeing as it was the main plot line from the first volume, and now at the end of the third it still isn’t resolved, makes it feel over-extended. If it was a tighter story, had less Leviathan stuff, and better art, it would’ve been more solid. Oh yeah, wasn’t a fan of the art for this one. Kudranski’s art feels...fake somehow? It looks almost like action figures being posed, or like it was traced from magazines, or something. I don’t know. The faces were weird and I wasn’t a fan. I’d say the first 3 volumes of Bendis’ action comics was, from what if heard prior, a bit of a pleasant surprise. Not great, but very readable and had enjoyable moments. This is probably where that train stops though, as I refuse to suffer through spinning wheels and JRJR. I’d say read the first 2 volumes, and if you like it enough, this one is innocuous.

Red Cloud apparently just disappears at the end, but it's only communicated 3rd hand via Trish Q reporting, which I didn't particularly enjoy. Looks like Leone and Strong are about to reveal more about how pervasive the Invisible Mafia really is within Metropolis. Didn't totally pull me in, but still a pretty good read.

    Basic plot: Superman hunts Leviathan while the Red Cloud hunts him. There was a lot going on here, and it was a bit hard to keep up with at times. The art reflected the chaos often, keeping the visuals in line with the action. This kept the feeling of the book together, but didn't really help sort out the chaos. It felt intentional, so that's positive. This is a book setting up for whatever comes next.

    Bendis’ writing is still solid, but with Red Cloud, the Invisible Mafia, Leviathan and whatever is going on at STAR Labs, there’s a lot of build-up waiting for a payoff. Nothing gets resolved here. Very much the middle of a story. The guest appearance by Naomi and side trip to the Hall of Justice was fun.

    Volume razoável. As partes intercalando com o evento Leviathan são interessantes e agragam muito a ele, porém é a partir da estreia da Naomi que o volume começa a melhorar. Boas edições antes de tudo desandar.

    There's no real big arc here, which I am actually okay with. I can take small, incremental changes in plot; we don't need to have universe-threatening baddies show up every other issue. I enjoy the characters, old or new, so I'll happily keep reading. There's no real big arc here, which I am actually okay with.

    Sort of a pivot point between the main Action series and the events of Naomi, Legion of Superheroes and Event Leviathan, all three of which I like. But this does feel more like appendices than a single complete story or chapter. Very cool to see Szymon Kudranski take on Superman after becoming familiar with his work on the decidedly different Punisher.
