"Continuity" - Part 2

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller
Penciller: Ig Guara
Inker: JP Mayer
Colorist: Cat Staggs

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Another set up chapter building the story up to a well deserved epic feel. This time we have the roster in the resistance burgeoning and Lex reintroduced after his deal that set everything in motion. I am really enjoying this storyline and just seeing the TV shows heroes banding together along with Season 11 introduced ones is a real treat for audiences new and old. I like that the chapters are weekly but they are so short! I wish we could have SEEN the fight with the Manhunters, for skimming over the Superman action I regretfully dock a point.

September 4, 2014: Update on Possible Supergirl TV SeriesPrint

Supergirl Yesterday we reported on the news that DC Entertainment are actively pitching a live-action Supergirl TV series, with BleedingCool.com claiming that comic book writer and TV producer Michael Green being involved. Now, Deadline.com weigh in on the story claiming that Green is not involved, but that "The Flash" TV series executive producer Greg Berlanti has teamed with script writer Ali Adler for a TV series about Kara Zor-El.

    Adler will write the script and will executive produce with Berlanti Prods.' Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. DC's Geoff Johns, who has been involved in both Arrow and The Flash, is also expected to be part of the project but it is unclear at this time what his role will be. The Supergirl show doesn't have a name yet. I hear the producers are considering several options that need to be cleared, including Super and Girl. The project is expected to be taken out in a couple of weeks and pitched to the major networks the way WBTV and DC did with their high profile Batman prequel Gotham, which landed at Fox with a big commitment. The Supergirl series had been in the works at WBTV for some time with Berlanti and Adler. Contrary to a report that was picked up by a number of outlets, Michael Green has had no involvement in the project.

While the rumored "Super" and "Girl" titles don't seem very imaginative, the prospect of a live-action Supergirl TV series sounds very exciting.

UPDATE: According to E! Online, the pitch was turned down by The CW (on which both "Arrow" and "The Flash" air), so the concept is being shopped around to other networks by Warner Bros. studio and DC Comics.

"Canary's Revenge"

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Tom Derenick
Inker: Rex Lokus
Cover: Jheremy Raapack with Santi Casas & David Lopez of Ikari Studio

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

    Bloody hell, that was good! A subtraction is on the individual reader, should he wish to apply it for the regular inconsistent plotting, characterization, and just plan stupidity, for instance: how in the world did Canary survive that crash landing, super-pill or not? What happened to the blood Regime Superman was oozing last issue? Where exactly did that gun come from, how did Regime not detect it or the Kryptonite, and how did any of it survive the crash? What is Canary's outfit made of? It survived better than Regime's. Why are Captain Marvel and Cyborg, two of the League's most powerful members, so easily owned?! The end of the day comes and it doesn't matter, and we're given something we don't see with Superman in his books, and that's a 'come from behind' victory, that makes him look even more badass than any of his other titles care or try to do. The key isn't that he gets the yellow power ring, or that he uses it to save himself, rather than doing it of his own powers. The linchpin in the issue is, and this something that so many writers fail to get, he saves himself. The ring comes to him because he's worthy of it. Regime's abilities to instill fear, such as they be, allow him a Deus ex Machina save... that actually makes sense. Ganthet's obliteration of the YLC makes the scene not only plausible, but reasonable. Regime's killing of Canary mirrors that of Green Arrow, as they both die after a major blast, but Taylor actually makes Regime, with Derenick's help, seem more reasonable than Canary. He actually tries to talk to her, while Canary is the scowl of revenge, going so far to invoke Lois' name, a low and thoughtless blow, for if Lois was alive, none of these events would have transpired.

September 4, 2014: Helen Slater Attending New Zealand Armageddon ExpoPrint

Supergirl New Zealand's biggest pulp-culture event, the Armageddon Expo has announced that actress Helen Slater will be attending the Auckland event at the ASB Showgrounds.

The Auckland Armageddon Expo takes place across October 24-27 at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane, Auckland.

From its inception in 1995, the Armageddon Expo has grown to become the largest fantasy event in Australasia. With shows in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Melbourne and Hamilton, the Armageddon Expo embodies the ever-growing pulp culture phenomenon.

September 3, 2014: DC Entertainment Pitching a Supergirl TV SeriesPrint

Supergirl BleedingCool.com claims to have received word that DC Entertainment is actively pitching a live-action Supergirl TV series, with Producer Michael Green, who was a co-writer on the "Supergirl" comic book with Mike Johnson, heavily involved in the pitch.

    Bleeding Cool has been reliably informed by a comics/Hollywood contact that DC Comics is currently actively pitching Supergirl as a TV series, and Green is attached.

After the 10 year success of "Smallville", which spurred on the recent success of getting superhero TV shows up and running, with "Arrow", "The Flash", "Constantine" and "Gotham" all currently in place, it only makes sense that a female superhero get a shot at the small screen too... seeing as how Wonder Woman's TV pilot was never picked up in 2011.

"Looking drastically different to the superhero alter ego he also portrays, Henry donned a plaid shirt under a brown jacket, as he carried a bag and donned Clark's signature black-rimmed spectacles", wrote the Daily Mail. "With a sombre look on his face, the star was surrounded by actors playing law enforcement officials as he stepped out of a local building being used as Gotham City Jail."

September 3, 2014: Buyers of $3.2 Million "Action Comics #1" RevealedPrint

Action Comics #1 As we reported last week, $3.2 million was the winning bid on the 9.0 graded copy of "Action Comics #1", Superman's 1938 comic book debut, setting a record price paid for a comic book. The Hollywood Reporter caught up with the successful buyers of this iconic comic book...

    Vincent Zurzolo and his partner Stephen Fishler, owners of Metropolis Collectibles in Manhattan, set a new record for the nearly pristine Action Comics No. 1 Superman comic book last week. For the owners of the world's largest dealership for vintage comic books it's not lunacy, it's an investment.

    "We feel very confidently this was a good price and that we will be able to sell this for a profit. We really believe in the strength of the comic book market and that it has a long way to go," Zurzolo tells The Hollywood Reporter. While declining to say how high they would have taken the bidding, he adds, "All I can say is we were determined to buy it."

    Citing the rise in popularity of comic book conventions, television and film properties, Zurzolo remains bullish on the investment value of comics. Ever the salesman, he says. "In the last recession the stock market crashed, the real estate market crashed and even to this day, you can't make any money off your money in the bank. The only place I see the comic book market going is up, up and away."
