Graphic Novels - Superman: Exile

In the time of decent music, bad hair-dos and bad business,
There was a man...a superman
who came from another world with extraordinary powers.
He used those powers for the good of mankind and he lived by a strict moral code: Never kill.
One day, he broke that code and fell apart because of it. 
In time, it became so bad, he felt that he had leave his adopted world to protect it from himself.
This is his story... (Cue Conan Music)
And here it is. I don't know why I held this off for the last few months. It's probably because I did not know how I would format it. Throw grad school, a PS3, and a needed break into the mix as well. Would it be the detailed format or the short (quick synopsis, opinion, highlights) format? Well, I've decided to do the latter, but it's because this GN is DENSE. So much goes on in these issues, which is why I am referring ya'll to From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast if you want a more detailed and probably better look at this event.

The creative team for this event involves names like Jerry Ordway, Roger Stern, Kerry Gamill, Dan Jurgens, Curt Swan, and George Perez. So, with all of that out of the way, it's time to get this done.

Movie Talk - Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

Samuel L. Jackson: I DON'T FREAKIN' BELIEVE THIS! I AM JEDI, AND AN AWESOME ONE...AND YOU WANT ME TO TONE IT DOWN?
George Lucas: Uh......yeah. Plus, all you do is sit. Get back in focus!
SLJ: WHAT? MAN, WHAT THE--
GL: Sammy....
SLJ: ....All right. you win, but I better be getting some more to do than sitting down next time!

Well, it's Star Wars Month and I think I should start with the movie that just about all revile: The Phantom Menace. Don't worry, I won't go all "X-Men 3" on this thing. I think it's an okay film actually. Yes, it does have its issues. Crappy dialogue, too much CGI, the wooden acting, and a turd called Jar Jar Binks are what people remember most about this movie. With that said, there were some good things in this movie...yeah, I said it. So, here are my 6 favorite things about TPM:
