August 24, 2014: "Action Comics #1" Sells for $3.2 Million in Ebay AuctionPrint

Action Comics #1 The Ebay auction for a 9.0 VF/NM graded 1938 edition of "Action Comics #1" has concluded, with the winning bid finishing at a record price of US$3,207,852.00.

The previous record price of $2.16 million was achieved in 2011 for a different copy of "Action Comics #1" which was owned by Nicolas Cage. While Cage's copy was also rated 9.0 by the Certified Guaranty Company, the Cage issue had “cream to off-white pages”, where the copy sold today is described as having "perfect white pages".

The issue, one of less than 50 unrestored copies believed to remain today, was sold by Darren Adams who owns Pristine Comics in Federal Way, Seattle.

Scheduled to arrive in stores: August 20, 2014

Cover date: October 2014

"The Girl Who Fell to Earth"

Writer: Tony Bedard
Penciller: Karl Moline
Inker: Jose Marzan Junior
Cover: Cameron Stewart

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    Quite frankly, this one was a difficult one to rate. It's a decent story, and I do hope we see more of the Michael character. However, this issue is not as good as what Tony Bedard has done. I expected Kara to be more active in "Superman: Doomed" in this chapter. Sure, what she was doing was important, but I felt like she was merely in the background for the entire book. In spite of this, the comic was worth reading, and I still have faith that this title will continue to be great.

August 23, 2014: Washington D.C. to Feature in "Batman v Superman"Print

As filming for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" continues in Michigan, with preparations for the production to head to Morroco soon, new photos have emerged hinting that Metropolis, Gotham and possibly Themyscira are not the only locations we'll see in the movie... with Washington D.C. cars, buses and taxis spotted on location.

Washington D.C. MetroBus
Washington D.C. Police Cars
Washington D.C. Taxis
Capitol Building Washington D.C.

Batman-News.com reports on some possible spoilers that tie in with the Washington D.C. vehicles...

    A major action scene was shot in July in one of the big studios in Detroit. Without giving too much away... it involves Superman and the United States Capitol building in Washington D.C. (pictured above). Superman will have to answer for what happened at the end of "Man of Steel". Half the public blames him for all the death and destruction. If it wasn't for Superman being there, General Zod would have never come to Earth.

As always, these rumors on story elements cannot be substantiated at this point in time, but the vehicles indicate that a scene or scenes will definitely take place in Washington D.C.

August 23, 2014: Super Robin Williams TributePrint

Robin and Chris As everyone knows, earlier this month the world mourned the death of Robin Williams. Many Superman fans know that Robin Williams and Christopher Reeve were very close friends. While I did post a quick message on both Twitter and Facebook at the time, the fan art shown here (by Cynthia Sousa) caught my eye today, and I felt it deserved to be posted here as a tribute to both men, who made our lives so much better through their talents.

In his book "Still Me", Christopher Reeve related a few stories about Robin Williams...

    "The first person I met at Juilliard was the other advanced student, a short, stocky, long-haired fellow from Marin County, California, who wore tie-dyed shirts with track suit bottoms and talked a mile a minute. I'd never seen so much energy contained in one person. He was like an un-tied balloon that had been inflated and immediately released. I watched in awe as he virtually caromed off the walls of the classrooms and hallways. To say that he was 'on' would be a major understatement. There was never a moment when he wasn't doing voices, imitating teachers, and making our faces ache from laughing at his antics. His name, of course, was Robin Williams."

And then, after his horse riding accident in which he suffered severe spinal injury, Christopher Reeve relates this story about lying in the hospital ICU...

    "As the day of the operation drew closer, it became more and more painful and frightening to contemplate. In spite of efforts to protect me from the truth, I already knew that I had only a fifty-fifty chance of surviving the surgery. I lay on my back, frozen, unable to avoid thinking the darkest thoughts. Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately. My first reaction was that either I was on way too many drugs or I was in fact brain damaged. But it was Robin Williams. He and his wife, Marsha, had materialized from who knows where. And for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay."

Their deaths, ten years apart, saddened us all...but their lives brought us so much joy.

August 21, 2014: Does This "Batman v Superman" Newspaper Prop Hint at Kryptonite?Print

Kryptonite? ThePropStop, a site which talks about movie props and costumes, has uncovered a newspaper prop reportedly created for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", which contains an article written by Lois Lane, that may hint at Kryptonite.

The Daily Planet newspaper prop article is titled "A City pf Neighborhoods", which talks about a university student who resides in Brick City (described as an "oft-neglected Hob's Bay port) in Metropolis, who gathered soil samples from eight neighborhoods within the city limits and, upon analysis, discovered toxicity levels that were extremely high.

A photo that accompanies the article (pictured), appears to be someone holding a toxic clay sample... or could it be a green meteorite?

August 21, 2014: Frank Miller Says "I Love Superman"Print

Superman Superman fans who have read (or watched) Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" could be forgiven for thinking that the comic book creator is anti-Superman, with Superman portrayed in a less than flattering light in that much-hyped story. However, in an interview with Playboy Miller reveals that he actually loves Superman!

    "The Dark Knight [comic book] series is all from Batman's point of view," Miller told Playboy. "But if you look at Dark Knight 2, you'll see a Superman who's much calmer than the one in the first Dark Knight.

    "Batman and Superman are dead opposites. I love Superman. Do I love Batman more? They're not people. They're only lines on paper."

Miller goes on to admit that he cannot watch any of the Batman films, even Nolan's Batman movies, walking out of the theatre before the films are over.
