November 26, 2015: "Supergirl" Episode Review - S01E04 "How Does She Do It?"Print

Supergirl Superman Homepage reviewer T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao) reviews episodes from the new "Supergirl" TV series, airing on CBS.

Check out his review of the 4th episode in which Kara's two identities are stretched thin when Supergirl must protect National City from a series of bombings and Kara is tasked with babysitting Cat's son, Carter. Also, James is conflicted when his ex-girlfriend Lucy Lane seeks to rekindle their relationship.

    Supergirl needs a villain. The other pieces are in place, and being played quite well. Supergirl is a quintessential heroine, with her supporting cast firmly astride of her. Cat Grant has received the best development thus far, with two episodes that highlight her heart actually beats, with Wynn doing his comic relief best thus far. Jimmy Olsen is doing the "hunk of burning love" pose and that's fine for now. Alex, Hank, come in as needed. The opening of the episode was the mark that highlights the need for a competent nemesis for the Maid of Might. Supergirl soars through the skies of National City. She's bright, happy, endearing... until her flight is disturbed by a drone spying on her. How much better if there was a figure to actually challenge her? The set-up of events, that Maxwell Lord concocts in order to gauge her abilities isn't a poor one, but it still lacks the force needed for where Supergirl is, surprisingly, after only five episodes.

November 26, 2015: Jurgens and Lee Talk "Superman: Lois and Clark"Print

Superman: Lois and Clark #2 With issue #2 of the "Superman: Lois and Clark" comic book series out this week, DC Comics caught up with writer Dan Jurgens and artist Lee Weeks to get a little further insight into the story. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    What kind of threats or enemies can we expect to show up?

    Dan: Superman has two missions here.

    The first is to handle the effects of natural disasters, mitigating them when possible, while also dealing with large-scale accidents like bridge collapses and airliner crashes.

    But he's also using the knowledge he has of villains on his world to try to prevent them from emerging here. There are great differences between these two universes, however, and a villain on his world isn't necessarily a villain on this one.

Read the entire interview at the DC Comics website.

November 26, 2015: Superman at the Macy's Thanksgiving ParadePrint

With Thanksgiving being celebrated in the USA today, here's a look back at Superman's history with Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

A Superman balloon first featured in the parade in 1939. The balloon was so large it needed to be handled by 50 people.

Thanksgiving Thanksgiving

The second Superman balloon first appeared in 1966 and, like its predecessor, featured an upright design.

Thanksgiving Thanksgiving

The third Superman balloon first featured in the 1982 Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and was created to place Superman in a horizontal flying pose.

Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Thanksgiving

The video clip below shows the same Superman balloon two years later in 1984.

However the same Superman balloon didn't fair too well a year later in 1985.

While Superman hasn't appeared in the parade for quite a few years, and isn't in this year's parade, it should be noted that the 1980's Superman balloon is the largest Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon ever, measuring 104 feet in length!

November 26, 2015: Fan Tribute Project - Superman's Book of MoralsPrint

Superman's Book of Morals Scott Cranford, who portrayed the Man of Steel for many years as the official town Superman for the Superman Celebration in Metropolis, Illinois, has teamed up with Michael Critzer to create a Fan Tribute project titled "Superman's Book of Morals". Here's the introduction from Scott...

    I always thought Superman was the greatest character for teaching values to young children. I still do.

    In the 1990s morals seemed to be less important in comic books. I saw superheroes slowly detaching from what they were founded on. I had a plan to change this "Superman's Book of Morals" a bedtime story book geared toward children's most formidable years, 3-7. This book could be read over and over to children to show them that morals are important. And, who better to tell them what being a real hero is all about than the most beloved superhero of all time?

    I believed becoming Superman on screen would put me in a great position to teach children values through superheroes, and I set out to do so. When I lost the part of Superman/Clark Kent to friend Dean Cain for the TV series Lois and Clark, I felt down but not out. I visited Dean on the set of Lois and Clark, and tried to get him interested in motivating kids through superheroes, but he wasn't going for it.

    Soon after, I pitched Superman's Book of Morals to DC Comics Superman editor Mike Carlin, who I had met working as a stand-in for Mr. Freeze on the film Batman and Robin. I did the art for a proposal book. It was crude, but I didn't have the resources to hire a professional artist. DC Comics had many fantastic artists, and I had a few in mind.

    A short time later I received a rejection letter from DC Comics. They informed me they were working on something similar. I understood. A book did come out, but it was geared toward young teens and focused on one issue. After I saw it, I felt sick. I had failed. I felt like I let down a lot of children and parents. If only my art were better, or if only I had sold myself better.

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Bizarro is sadly over, and while it was a trying book to get through and critique, it was well worth the effort expended to do so. Bizarro, along with Bat-Mite and Doomed, were books successfully aimed at the audience that DC wants to cultivate, and with precise synchronicity, they are all over. It's doubtful that we'll see the antics of Bizarro again anytime soon, but it's a shame that isn't the definitive case. The book had the freedom (with the exception of the trunks edict) to move easily through the DC Universe, and had more overlay and interplay than many of the titles that DC offers with more prominent characters. It, also, strangely, had a better adherence to continuity despite the elasticity needed to tell the story, when so many comics right now struggle with their own internal sequencing. There's much to be taken from the short-lived series, but the fear is that little or nothing will.
