    What happens when you hand over the writing reigns to someone who doesn't write or understand the character? This book.

    Awful, clunky dialogue. Embarrassing... Clark has lived on Earth his entire life and doesn't know mouth wash is to wash your mouth and not drink down?

    Clark is written as a selfish arrogant, buffoon here. No matter the personal benefit, Superman just wouldn't risk his ability to help his fellow man for experimenting with beer and Italian food. I can see what JR JR is trying to do, what he's trying to convey, 'life and its new experiences' but in all honestly he should stick to art because a writer his isn't and debatably his art is divisive also. Also I have to ask - THIS IS HOW LOIS FINDS OUT? Really? Seriously? Just all 'round awful.

    Despite my criticism of Jeff King's storytelling, I have no real problem with the premise or major plot points of Convergence. The issue I have, is his inability to fill the spaces in between. His skeleton outline has remained just that, a skeleton. No meat on the bones, nothing to chew on, with very little to draw interest to the story.

    The broad strokes are simple. The premise is introduced in the first issue. (The zero issue doesn't even count). Deimos is introduced at the end of the 2nd. Batman is killed in the 3rd. Brainiac's imprisonment is revealed at the end of the 4th. You can bet there will be a significant event at the end of the 6th, and maybe the 7th, with the big finale coming in the 8th issue.

    Once again, when DC promises to simplify things, man do they complicate them. I can't tell you how much time I spent on the internet trying to figure out which timelines these characters came from.

    To better understand this issue, DC suggested reading Booster Gold: Future's End, part of last year's September tie-in event. I did. I was more confused. After some research I realized, that to truly understand this book, one would need to read more. New 52's Justice League International, then Booster Gold: Future's End.

    But if you are a fan of Booster, especially the Geoff Johns to New 52 era, then you will like this book. It is both Pre-Flashpoint nostalgia and a continuation of his current version's storyline. This tie-in is also unique because it ties into the Convergence miniseries more tightly than any other.

May 1, 2015: Gwenda Bond Talks About Her Young Adult Lois Lane NovelPrint

Lois Lane Fallout Author Gwenda Bond spoke with ComicVine.com about today's release of her Young Adult novel "Lois Lane: Fallout", in which Lois Lane is starting a new life in Metropolis.

    An Army brat, Lois has lived all over - and seen all kinds of things. (Some of them defy explanation, like the near-disaster she witnessed in Kansas in the middle of one night.) But now her family is putting down roots in the big city, and Lois is determined to fit in. Stay quiet. Fly straight. As soon as she steps into her new high school, though, she can see it won't be that easy. A†group known as the Warheads is making life miserable for another girl at school. They're messing with her mind, somehow, via the high-tech immersive videogame they all play. Not cool. Armed with her wit and her new snazzy job as a reporter, Lois has her sights set on solving this mystery. But sometimes it's all a bit much. Thank goodness for her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy...

Here's an excertp from the interview...

    CV: How did you come up with the balance in making this a young adult novel based on a comic book character set in a slightly more realistic world?

    GB: There are a couple of elements at play. In a Superman story, where Superman isn't really Superman yet, there aren't usually superheroes in the world - he's the first. So I knew Lois would be living in a world much like ours (which also doesn't have superheroes, of course). That said, I didn't want to lose the super science and science fictional nature of the comic book stories completely. The answer seemed to be a world slightly more advanced technologically than our own, where strange things are starting to happen and Lois is among the first to notice. But I also wanted Lois's life itself to be recognizable for teens reading the book. The great thing about Lois is that she doesn't have superpowers, but she's still a superhero. Any of us can be like her. I feel like setting this in a slightly more realistic world enhances that.

    CV: How does it feel knowing this could be many young readers' first time being introduced to Lois?

    GB: Amazing - I still can't believe I got to write Lois Lane. It feels like a dream. I hope they fall in love with her.

    CV: Many fans crave more Lois in the comics (or even her own solo series) and are saddened by her current lack of appearances. Do you think Lois-centric stories are a tough sell for the average comic book readers?

    GB: I hope not! I've been tremendously grateful for the outpouring of support and enthusiasm since the day this project was announced. I truly believe that there are a lot of people in the world who love Lois Lane just as much as they love Superman. And I hope too that the expanding readership of comic books outside what we maybe used to think of as the average comic book readership will embrace this story.

May 1, 2015: Read Neal Bailey's Story from "Bizarre New World"Print

Brave New World Skipper Martin, a friend of the Superman Homepage and long-time Superman fan, has created a Kickstarter campaign for his new graphic novel - Bizarre New World.

    Paul Krutcher has a little problem with gravity, but his status as the only flying human on Earth is short-lived when soon the entire human race joins him in the sky! Welcome to a Bizarre New World.

    Nine years in the making, the entire 278 page story is now complete and available for the very first time. The main book is a self-contained graphic novel with a definitive ending.

With stories from various writers and artists, including our own Neal Bailey, we think "Bizarre New World" is something Superman fans will enjoy.

Skipper Martin has been kind enough to allow the Superman Homepage to post Neal Bailey's complete 8 page story "Carte Blanche" for you to read in full right here.

April 30, 2015: "Batman v Superman" Promotional Art and PostersPrint

Superman Warner Bros. has had their hands full this week trying to clamp down on leaked photos of Ben Affleck as Batman appearing online. Various websites have received requests to remove images that showed Batman from the IMAX posters but without the Superman "S" shield across his face, some even in full color.

Today, Blu-ray.com had a number of high resolution images showing promotional artist impressions of both Superman and Batman, along with boxing-style promotional posters of the two going head-to-head.

UPDATE: It appears as though Warner Bros. has swooped down and demanded the images be removed as the pages showing the images at the Blu-ray.com forums are no longer available.

April 30, 2015: Tao Okamoto on Her Experience Filming "Batman v Superman"Print

Tao Okamoto on set Tao Okamoto, who is about to appear in the third season of the American TV show "Hannibal", and who has a small role in next year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", spoke to the Japan Times about her experience as a Japanese actress making her way into Hollywood.

    "My character in 'Batman v Superman' isn't supposed to be Japanese, but director Zack Snyder said he'd seen me in 'Wolverine' and had to get me in the film somehow," she says. "Hearing that was like music to my ears. Bryan Fuller, the screenwriter and producer of 'Hannibal,' has also shown a lot of faith in me, even altering my character so I could be in his show."

While Tao has now filmed roles in two massive superhero films, she's still not 100% comfortable around some of the bigger names she's worked with.

    The 29-year-old Okamoto is clearly reveling in her new Hollywood career. However, listening to her speak you get the impression she can feel overwhelmed by it at times. It's understandable given the fact that she had no acting experience before appearing in "Wolverine." She admits she "felt like a guest," on the set of "Batman v Superman" and was "too shy," to speak to main star Ben Affleck. She also admits to being "really scared," before meeting the cast of "Hannibal." Fortunately, her fellow actors weren't nearly as intense or frightening as their characters on screen.

    "With 'Batman v Superman' I was always on the outside as I was only on set a couple of days a month, whereas in 'Hannibal' I was more directly involved everyday so it was important to build relations with the cast and crew.
