Picked up this little beauty at half price books tonight. Reading it now.
I got myself an early Christmas gift. It was on sale from Amazon. This is one of my favorite interpretations of Superman. It came out in 1988 and I remember I couldn’t wait for Saturday mornings when I was 12. For the 50th anniversary of Superman It combined the best of all the different incarnations of Superman up to that time; John William’s theme from the Christopher Reeve’s movie, the Superman narration from the old radio shows and black and white tv series, the Gene Hackman version of Luthor, the style and attitude from Byrne and Wolfman’s reboot and current run of the comics. So good!
So back in the summer I “pre-ordered” Man of Steel and I was sitting here thinking “when the hell does that come out on blu ray? I really need to see it again!!!” So I looked up on Amazon and it comes out next Tuesday the 12th … but then I remembered I “pre-ordered” it at Walmart and sometimes the streaming version comes out earlier (to entice you to pre-order it I guess); so I log onto VUDU (Walmarts streaming service) and I squealed in delight! “Eeeeeeeee!!!” It will be available to stream in 7 Hours!!! Awwww Mutha-Fuckin’ Yeaaaahhh!!!!
Superman 75th Anniversary Animated Short
From the creative minds of Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) and Bruce Timm (Superman: The Animated Series) and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this short follows Superman through the years, from his first appearance on the cover of Action Comics #1 to Henry Cavill in this year’s Man of Steel…all in two minutes!
THIS! THIS! THIS! THIS! THIS!
Found this Superman comic today for $1 at Keith’s Comics Sidekicks summer clearance store … God damn I love old (pre John Byrne revamp) supes comics … They can be so fucking out there and ridiculous sometimes.
This may just be the best dollar I have spent on a comic.
Currently gulping down.
I found a good condition copy of this at Half Price books for 50 cents.
Luthor scolding a crying Superman is ridiculous and amazing.
Man of Steel - Official Trailer #2
I don’t think there is any other movie in production or soon to be released I am more excited about.
JUST WATCHED THE FULL MAN OF STEEL TRAILER!!!
posting it next!
Mumford and Sons ~ I Will Wait is getting the most play right now.
And listening to a lot of Owl City’s new album The Midsummer Station; loving Gold, I’m Coming After You, Speed of Love and Metropolis (song about Superman that’s all sorts of awesome).
