Man of Steel poster #3. The thing i love about this poster, which i’ve already read is getting flack for this particular element (and drawing comparisons to the Star Trek posters) - is that it’s blurry. Yes, it’s blurry. And i love it. It makes total sense in context of Superman’s powers and personality. If Superman existed in the real world with powers such as super-speed and flight you better believe you’d never get a clear shot of the dude.
While many were apprehensive about Man of Steel, the upcoming Superman film directed by Zack Snyder, the trailer released last week has left quite a few previous naysayers somewhere between “cautiously optimistic” and “ridiculously excited.” It’s also inspired video editor Jason Inman to cut clips from Superman the Animated Series over the new trailer, and you can check out above.
Oh, this is fun.
The new Man Of Steel trailer looks to promise everything a #Superman movie should be. And yes, i cried a little.
Highlights from All-Star Superman.

All Star. Always.
“The monthly comics and slog to get out issue after issue of meaningless drivel is so weird to me. In that, we’ve seen that the way to tell the kind of, life changing Superman stories lately, is to give the writer a little free reign outside the continuity to tell the story that he wants.” - (the ghost of) Dean Trippe
I just finished listening to this podcast and couldn’t agree more with Dean’s perspective.
Editor’s Note: A Counter Continuity Review article will highlight the key points of the series and give an overall recommendation.
Premise: It’s the same Superman you know and love but with one main difference: instead of being the last survivor of the Planet Krypton, Kal-El’s parents…
Nice write-up of a book i meant to check out years ago.
New Digital-First Superman Series to Feature Timm, Hitch, Samnee, Sprouse and More with Out-of-Continuity Adventures
By Andy Khouri
Great news from DC Comics: the publisher has announced Adventures of Superman, a new digital-first series that’s the sort of thing we’ve been eager to see for years. Launching in April, the title will give a number of writers and artists a place to tell stories of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s Man of Steel unrestrained by the continuity and aesthetics of the main New 52 line. Among those contributing are ComicsAlliance favorites Jeff Parker (Bucko, Red She-Hulk) and Chris Samnee (Daredevil, The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom), who will collaborate on a story about Superman’s first encounter with Lex Luthor. But before that, Adventures of Superman begins with a two-part story written by popular novelist Orson Scott Card (Ender’s Game) and drawn by the great Chris Sprouse and Karl Story.Most auspiciously, Adventures of Superman will see some new comics work by the legendary animator and cartoonist Bruce Timm, whose last solo Superman story was, as best as I can determine, all the way back in the 1990s when he was working on Superman: The Animated Series and drawing covers for its comic book tie-in, Superman Adventures.
oh man, Chris Samnee’s Superman looks GLORIOUS. (The rest of the line up on this new series doesn’t look half bad either. Bruce Timm??!!)
