July 24, 2014: Holding KryptonitePrint

Holding Kryptonite Lauren Agostino and A.L. Newberg have authored a new book, Holding Kryptonite, telling the story of the creation of Superman, from the contentious $130 check all the way to the battles for the control of the character that continue to this day.

For information on where to get the book, and a brief summation of the concept, head on over to the official site.


July 24, 2014: The Many (New) Faces of SupermanPrint

Action Comics #1 The topic of a new Newsarama.com article is sure to spark some discussion, detailing all the many current incarnations of Superman who don’t seem very much like one another:

“There are Supermen in the future, and Supermen in other worlds. There's a Superman from TV, a couple Supermen with darker skin, a bunch of evil versions of Superman, and a Mecha Superman who's more like a Transformer than a Kryptonian.

“And that’s just this summer.

“So is there something going on with Superman? Why is DC embracing so many versions of him all of the sudden?”

Good questions. What do you think?


July 24, 2014: Action Comics #1 Lands on eBayPrint

Action Comics #1 The Rolling Stone reports on a copy of Action Comics #1 going up for auction on eBay from August 14th to the 24th:

    "It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's . . . a very expensive eBay listing. The debut issue of Action Comics, which just also happens to be the first appearances of Superman and Lois Lane, is headed to auction. The issue originally came out in April 1938 and had a cover price of 10 cents but, as The New York Times reports, a copy sold for $2,161,000 in 2011. That copy allegedly once belonged to Nicolas Cage, who is said to have purchased it for $150,000 in 1997."

The bit about 1% of the proceeds going to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation is buried in the Rolling Stone article, but it features somewhat more prominently on this eBay infographic advertising the auction.


July 24, 2014: Snyder Tweets Dark Jedi Cavill Pic on TwitterPrint

Super Jedi Today "Batman v Superman" Director Zack Snyder posted a tweet with this photo of Henry Cavill as a Jedi knight and the hashtag #SuperJedi.

Obviously Snyder is having some fun with the black cloaks they make them wear to cover their costumes when performing somewhere where the public might see them.
