Posted in Comics, Movies, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror with tags , , , , , , , on December 12, 2012 by ghostradioworld

This trailer follows in the “Tree of Life” style of the first trailer.  But offers  more images of Superman in his costume.    And more of the epic feel that a Superman film needs.

Good teaser.  Just enough Supes stuff to tell you it’s a Superman film.  And just enough other stuff to suggest it’s gonna be different.  The flick is a year away.  But this is a good beginning in their marketing efforts.

Action Comics #2 Sells Out!

According to Bleeding Cool, Action Comics #2, one of the hottest comics of DC’s recent relaunch, has “gone to back order”.  This means retailers cannot order any more copies and have any certainty they will receive them by street date.  The comic is written by Grant Morrison with art by Rags Morales.

We can hear every geek on Internet collectively screech:  “Dump the texture.”  And we have to agree.  It’s a Superman costume, not an imitation alligator bag.

The classic Supes costume is a thing of beauty.  Duplicate it, don’t improve on it.  Because you can’t, Mr. H’wood Costume Designer.  It took decades and hordes of artists to get it to its iconic splendor.  Honor that.  Respect that.  Heck, use it!  It’s sold everything from pajamas to peanut butter.  And, if you honor it,  it will sell your movie too!

Here’s the cover for Superman #1 by Georges Perez.  We must say we aren’t crazy about the costume changes.  (Jim Lee was responsible for the redesign.)  Superman’s costume is iconic.  Leave it alone.  Some have suggested these costume changes are a way to get around the court decision in DC’s case with Siegel and Shuster estates.  We don’t think so.  The changes we need to be more significant.

Superman Hates America?

Posted in Comics, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Weird News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2011 by ghostradioworld

Superman usually gets in the mainstream press because he’s dying or getting married or changing his costume.   But this week he’s all over the news for his political views.  Yup, you read that right, his political views?!?   Or, to be more precise, a discussed action.    In this case, the notion that he’s going to renounce his American citizenship.  This has caused a furor online and off.   For a good rundown of all that you might want to look at Bleeding Cool’s coverage.

More on this story after the jump …
