May 1, 2015: Preview Clip From "The Death of 'Superman Lives': What Happened?"Print

Superman Lives The documentary "The Death of 'Superman Lives': What Happened?", which delves into the story behind why the Superman film of the late 1990s (which involved Tim Burton, Kevin Smith and Nicolas Cage) was never made, is now showing in select theaters for a limited run before being released internationally on July 9 on Streaming, DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD.

The Daily Beast has been given an exclusive clip from the documentary in which Tim Burton explains why Cage was the right guy for the role of the Man of Steel.


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.
