July 24, 2014: The Day I Saved HALL H at the San Diego Comic-ConPrint

Comic-Con by Luis A. Jaime

"My son was there. He was in the bus. He saw what Clark did." - MAN OF STEEL (2013)

Of all the lines of dialogue in the film, MAN OF STEEL, this particular one stands out in my mind. It is a line that I will always associate with one of the most incredible days of my life - Saturday, July 14th, 2012.

Not only did I get to experience the first ever footage of MAN OF STEEL, but I also helped save almost 10,000 people in line for HALL H... and it almost killed me.

Two years ago, at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, everyone was eagerly anticipating the Warner Bros. panel inside HALL H. There was a pretty exciting line-up that year: Pacific Rim, The Hobbit and MAN OF STEEL were going to be featured.

My brother Ivan and I were going to be there that Saturday. The only way to make sure we get inside was to get in line early. Real early. We got in line at 2:00 a.m. that Saturday morning. We would have lined up earlier, but I needed to get some rest beforehand, because I had donated blood at Comic-Con Thursday morning. I only got two hours of sleep that night.

July 24, 2014: Holding KryptonitePrint

Holding Kryptonite Lauren Agostino and A.L. Newberg have authored a new book, Holding Kryptonite, telling the story of the creation of Superman, from the contentions $130 check all the way to the battles for the control of the character that continue to this day.

For information on where to get the book, and a brief summation of the concept, head on over to the official site.


July 24, 2014: The Many (New) Faces of SupermanPrint

Action Comics #1 The topic of a new Newsarama.com article is sure to spark some discussion, detailing all the many current incarnations of Superman who donít seem very much like one another:

ďThere are Supermen in the future, and Supermen in other worlds. There's a Superman from TV, a couple Supermen with darker skin, a bunch of evil versions of Superman, and a Mecha Superman who's more like a Transformer than a Kryptonian.

ďAnd thatís just this summer.

ďSo is there something going on with Superman? Why is DC embracing so many versions of him all of the sudden?Ē

Good questions. What do you think?


July 24, 2014: Action Comics #1 Lands on eBayPrint

Action Comics #1 The Rolling Stone reports on a copy of Action Comics #1 going up for auction on eBay from August 14th to the 24th:

    "It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's . . . a very expensive eBay listing. The debut issue of Action Comics, which just also happens to be the first appearances of Superman and Lois Lane, is headed to auction. The issue originally came out in April 1938 and had a cover price of 10 cents but, as The New York Times reports, a copy sold for $2,161,000 in 2011. That copy allegedly once belonged to Nicolas Cage, who is said to have purchased it for $150,000 in 1997."

The bit about 1% of the proceeds going to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation is buried in the Rolling Stone article, but it features somewhat more prominently on this eBay infographic advertising the auction.


July 24, 2014: Snyder Tweets Dark Jedi Cavill Pic on TwitterPrint

July 23, 2014: Superman Plaque Dedication Set for August 16Print

Adventures of Superman Cast To celebrate the 100th birthday of George Reeves (the star of the TV series "Adventures of Superman"), as well as the 100th birthdays of both of Superman's co-creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster this year, which is also Superman's 76th anniversary, a plaque will be dedicated on Saturday, August 16 at 5400 Wilbur Ave, Tarzana, California, starting at 9:00am.

This location for the plaque was selected as it was used during a film shoot for the Adventures of Superman episode "The Man Who Could Read Minds" in 1953.

Cast members George Reeves, John Hamilton, Noel Neill, Jack Larson, and Robert Shayne were all present on that day back in 1953. Now, in 2014, Jack Larson will return to the site, joined by Beverly Washburn, Laura Siegel Larson and Stephanie Shayne Parkin, for the plaque dedication.

The plaque dedication is open to the public.
