February 1, 2015: Superman Musical Comedy on Stage at Leicester Square TheatrePrint

Superman Musical The Leicester Square Theatre will present their stage production of the 1966 Broadway musical "It's a bird, It's a plane, It's Superman!" from February 10-21.

    IT'S A BIRD... IT'S A PLANE... IT'S SUPERMAN (based on the Comic Strip SUPERMAN) is the tale of Superman's efforts to defeat the vengeful Dr. Abner Sedgwick, a ten-time Nobel Prize-losing scientist, who seeks to destroy the world's symbol of good. Superman also comes into romantic conflict with Max Mencken, a columnist for the Daily Planet newspaper who is intent on revealing Superman's true identity, as he resents Lois Lane's attraction to Superman.

    The dazzling score is by Charles Strouse (Annie) and Lee Adams (Bye Bye Birdie) and has a book by David Newman and Robert Benton who would go on to write the screenplays for Bonnie & Clyde and several of the Superman movies.

    Following a successful Sell-Out Production of the UK Premiere of IT'S A BIRD... IT'S A PLANE... IT'S SUPERMAN at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre, Walthamstow, East London. This high flying Musical Comedy transfers to the Leicester Square Theatre for a limited run of just 10 performances!

January 30, 2015: Supergirl's First TV Foe RevealedPrint

Lumberjack According to TVLine.com, the first villain Kara will come up against in the upcoming "Supergirl" TV series is an obscure Wonder Woman villain known as Lumberjack.

    Kara Danvers née Zor-El will have her work cut out for her from the get-go, seeing as her adversary in the series pilot will be the DC Comics baddie Lumberjack. To that end, the CBS freshman is seeking a hulk akin to "Rory McCann, the 6-foot-6 actor from Game of Thrones" to play this "big, burly monster of a man, who has battled Kara's cousin" - that'd be you-know-who - "in the past" and shows up to ascertain her level of power, on behalf of an unseen superior.

Lumberjack is a character seen only once in the comics. He appeared in "Wonder Woman #268" in a story by Gerry Conway and Jose Delbo.

    The story drags here and needlessly so. Any reader familiar with Lex Luthor knows that he's more than culpable for any situation, as Lex usually has his digits in every pie imaginable. The reveal here lacks power, because there is still so much story left to go. It's also very telling how helpless the Justice League are without Batman and Lex Luthor in this situation. There are no other members with any scientific inclination, no brain power to address the problem aside of the marquee characters that Johns has decided to focus on. Previously, Superman and Wonder Woman were both intellectually adept, and we'd have seen the Man of Tomorrow racking his brain at the Fortress of Solitude, and Wonder Woman making use of the resources of Themyscira. Today, they simply carry water. It's hard to understand the appeal of such a set-up, when supposedly the draw of Justice League is to showcase all of the characters at their apex, and the synergy that comes from such. Currently, Justice League is a dark, dank, depressing mix of abyss, apocalypse... and Lex Luthor. While it's fair in application, as there needs to be a situation for this lot to come together, the League shouldn't be falling victim to what they need to save the world from, leaving a lightweight scenario that is lazy and limp. The League needs to be used or let go, there is no in between.

January 29, 2015: New "Super Friends" Cartoons Set to Return to TVPrint

DC Super Friends DC Entertainment has announced that the DC Super Friends toy line, inspired by the Fisher-Price Imaginext action figures and play sets, will be turned into a series of 15 three-minute animated shorts set to launch on television in the spring (April/May) that will be accompanied by an app to further connect audiences to the toys and characters.

    "We are excited to continue to forge new ground with our long-time partners Mattel and Fisher-Price to build on the success of these popular toy lines by bringing the play pattern to life through this original content that we will be able to offer across multiple content platforms," said Brad Globe, president, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

    Toymakers have long seen animated series as a way to create demand around their playthings, but in most cases the traditional forms of entertainment came first. In this case, Batman and the rest of DC's characters were already so established it enabled the company to take its time to launch a successful line of toys first and build content around them later.

    "We are thrilled to be working with our Warner Bros., Mattel and Fisher-Price colleagues to create new Batman and DC Super Friends kids' content," said DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson. "These new animated projects will offer all new Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman adventures that seamlessly jump from toybox to screen."

    The timing of the toy spinoffs come as DC is aggressively ramping up film and TV efforts around its superheroes.

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

    A meme that's recently been ruminating in this writer's mind is the need for novelty amongst comic books readers, particularly superhero comic books. The fact that so many stories have been told with such a handful of characters, and those characters have existed for over 70 years, means that a long-time reader may be willing to sacrifice quality and consistency for a novel approach and great entertainment value. However, when that novelty begins to fray and the entertainment value is no longer there, you have this installment of Injustice: Gods Among Us. The writing here is little better than pedestrian. We lose pages on the looked for action between the League and the Insurgency, just to see Deadman (Nightwing) fly and ask a question. When the action does take place, once more the book reminds us of its schizophrenic nature. It was posed as a question before, and bears repeating here: Who is in the wrong? Regime, who has decided to assert his will on the Earth in order to make it better? Batman, who seeks to stop Regime's march to power? Wonder Woman, who crushed a man's skull and armed violated women so that they could kill their assailants? Does there need to be a wrong, principal character? Yes, yes there does, as if there isn't, this particular story is meaningless. This issue goes a long way towards undoing much of the groundwork that was lain in the last two years, and asks readers to apply layer upon layer of stupidity to allow it to entertain them.
