Elseworlds Trade Paperbacks

“In Elseworlds, heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places – some that have existed, and others that can’t, couldn’t, or shouldn’t exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.”


Superman Batman: Alternate Histories
Reprints: Action Comics Annual #6, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight Annual #4, Detective Comics Annual #7, Steel Annual #1
ELSEWORLDS. The four tales in this volume are all set in other times, some long past, some just moments ago. All are different from the past we know. They are alternate histories. Consider the possibilities… Bruce Wayne sails the high seas as the pirate Leatherwing. Gar-El, sole survivor of the planet Krypton, maintains order in colonial America for over two hundred years until his great-grandson, Kal-El, begins to question his authority. John Henry Irons is born and raised as a slave during the 1800s. Harvey Dent prowls the streets of Gotham as the vengeful vigilante Batman, and only Bruce Wayne can stop him. Elseworlds. Consider the possibilities.

Strange visitor from another world who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare handsÉ and who, as the champion of the common worker, fights a never-ending battle for Stalin, Socialism and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact. In this startling twist of a familiar tale, a certain Kryptonian rocketship crash-lands on Earth carrying an infant who will one day become the most powerful being on the planet. But his ship doesn’t land in America. He is not raised in Smallville, Kansas. Instead, he makes his new home on a collective in the Soviet Union! From the mind of Mark Millar, the best-selling writer of THE AUTHORITY and Wanted, comes this strangely different take on the Superman mythos. Featuring art by Dave Johnson, Kilian Plunkett, Andrew Robinson, and Walden Wong, with an introduction by film producer Tom DeSanto (X-Men, X2: X-Men United, Transformers), this Deluxe Edition also features an extensive sketch gallery by Johnson, Plunkett and Alex Ross.

Superman: True Brit
by Kim Howard Johnson, John Cleese, John Byrne
ELSEWORLDS. Superman stands for truth, justice, and the American way, but what if the space capsule that brought him to Earth had landed in rural England? That’s the premise of this graphic novel coauthored by Monty Python’s John Cleese. Adopted by a stereotypically proper farm couple, the Clarks, young Colin is raised to suppress his powers to avoid drawing attention and causing embarrassment. After university, he heads to London to write for a trash tabloid run by a Murdock-like magnate and develop a crush on Page-Three-Girl-turned-reporter Louisa Layne. To honor his parents’ desire for anonymity, he adopts the guise of, as a TV commentator puts it, “a man in a cape and rather garish tights.” As one might expect from its Python pedigree, the story is seldom subtle in spoofing Britishisms, from National Health Service waiting lists to cricket. Onetime Superman illustrator John Byrne’s art keeps the character recognizable. Less outlandish than Cleese’s better-known work, this tongue-in-cheek take on superhero conventions should please comics and Python fans alike.
