Phillip Kennedy Johnson shuns low key in favor of cinematic siege warfare, skillfully drawn by artist Scott Godlewski Ronan Kent holds the title of Superman here, backed by a team that fulfills the usual fantasy archetypes with a decidedly Kryptonian twist

Godlewski has fun with the visuals here Enter the Blue Lantern which carries the S like a construction, a Kryptonian half-breed / Tamaranian and the Red-Son-meets-Warhammer vibes of the Red King, there's plenty of eye candy here Loosely coated in thematically appropriate blue and red by Gabe Eltaeb, House of El is an elegant book with a fluid sense of rhythm

However, Too Much Happening Here This one-shot serves as an introduction to a new group of characters and a whole new war If that wasn't enough, he tries to sum it all up in 44 Ultimately pages, too much emphasis on action to do justice to the basic concept This is a delicate task, and with so much real estate given to the show, it's hard to find a reason to care

Despite the frantic pace that gets in the way, each new character is a unique and decently fleshed out person There is real potential here in this world of conquering the Kryptonians, with all the intrigues of the courtroom, the split allegiances and the fraternal stabs that suggest I want to know more in this world I want to see more of this conflict Offered as is Future State: House of El is a frustrating clue to something better
