November 18, 2014: New Titles Announced for Week Two of "Convergence"Print

DC Comics has announced the next wave of titles in their company-wide "Convergence" event, with 10 new titles scheduled to go on sale in the second week of April 2015... Three of which are Superman related:

Superman: Man of Steel SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL
Writer: Louise Simonson
Artist: June Brigman and Roy Richardson, with color by John Rauch
Metropolis was taken when Superman was missing, so it's up to Steel to guard the city from the heroes of GEN13 in his absence.

Supergirl: Matrix SUPERGIRL: MATRIX
Writer: Keith Giffen
Artist: Ramon Bachs, with color by Hi-Fi
What do Supergirl, Lady Quark, and Ambush Bug have in common? Well... nothing really. But that didn't stop us from sticking them in a story together. You are SO welcome.

Superboy SUPERBOY
Writer: Fabian Nicieza
Artist: Karl Moline and Jose Marzan Jr, with color by Hi-Fi
Has Kon-El earned the right to be the man of steel? Kon will have to prove his mettle in battle against the Superman of Kingdom Come! But what if the only way to save Metropolis is to lose the fight?

If you missed it, last week we posted details on two Superman related books in the first wave of "Convergence" books:

Lois and Superman SUPERMAN
Writer: Dan Jurgens
Artist: Lee Weeks and Dan Jurgens/Norm Rapmund
Superman and Lois deal with the impending birth of their child as he is called in to protect the city.

JUSTICE LEAGUE
Writer: Frank Tieri
Artist: Vicente Cifuentes
When Supergirl, Zatanna, and Jade went to Jessie Quick's baby shower, they didn't expect to be taken to another planet for a year, or to be attacked by Flashpoint Aquaman.

"Convergence" comprises a nine-part weekly comic book series that begins on April 1 with issue #0 and ends with issue #8 on May 27, as well as 40 brand-new 2-part mini-series to be published throughout April and May. The story spins out of the finales of "Earth 2: Worlds End" and "New 52: Futures End." The event will follow Brainiac as he hoards cities from all over the multiverse and captures them in "domes." Starting in April, the entire current crop of DC series will be placed on hold for two months while 40 new two-part series, each one seemingly set in one of the publisher's numerous alternate realities or past continuities, take their place.

November 18, 2014: Six Flags Unveils "Justice League: Battle for Metropolis 4D" RidePrint

Justice League: Battle for Metropolis Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the world's largest regional theme park company, through a partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment - unveils a behind-the-scenes look at new components of the 4D interactive dark ride experience named JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS 4D. The thrilling new rides are headed to Six Flags St. Louis and Six Flags Over Texas in 2015.

"An enormous amount of detail and creativity has gone into producing what will be one of the most exciting and immersive dark rides experiences in the industry," said Tom Iven, senior vice president of U.S. park operations for Six Flags.

Guests will be part of the action as they fight alongside SUPERMAN, BATMAN, WONDER WOMAN, THE FLASH and the rest of the JUSTICE LEAGUE team, to stop Lex Luthor and The Joker from their diabolical plan to take control of Metropolis. Aided by the cybernetic Super Hero known as CYBORG, guests will be recruited to join the JUSTICE LEAGUE reserve team and trained to use high-tech laser blasters in preparation for anything the Super-Villains have in store for them. Traveling in six-passenger vehicles, riders take to the streets and take aim against The Joker, Lex Luthor, and his relentless robot army, in the thrilling BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS!

The multi-degrees-of-freedom motion-based ride vehicles were created by Oceaneering and are equipped with six interactive laser blasters per vehicle to help guests find the JUSTICE LEAGUE and free them from their captors. Complete with 4D effects of simulating fire, cannon blasts, and explosions, JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS is the ultimate dark ride adventure.

"By incorporating the dynamic ride system created by Oceaneering, along with the massive 3D screens, interactive game play, and highly detailed scenery by Sally Corp., we can achieve the next generation of interactive thrills," said John Wood, CEO of Sally Corporation, the industry leader in dark rides and creator of the lifelike animatronic Super Heroes.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS will feature custom-designed, state-of-the-art animatronics. The Joker's lifelike movements and menacing cackle will haunt riders as he sits atop his chaos-creating cannon spreading mayhem throughout the streets of Metropolis. The four-minute journey incorporates a wide array of special effects including five huge interactive 3D screens, incredible hi-definition animation and a dramatic musical score.

Six Flags is still keeping broader details about the ride experience under wraps, but Iven said park guests can look forward to a completely new experience with JUSTICE LEAGUE: BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS as it is "the very first motion-based, interactive dark ride in North America."

November 18, 2014: Miller and Staggs Say Farewell to "Smallville"Print

Smallville: Continuity - Chapter #12 In case you missed it, DC Comics published an interview with Bryan Q. Miller and Cat Staggs regarding the series finale of the "Smallville: Season 11" comic book title, in which the pair talk about their favorite stories in Season 11. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    What would you say you're most proud of in the Smallville comic?

    BQM: At the initial launch on the apps, 40% of those who bought Chapter 1 were new users to those apps. I've heard over and over again that Smallville continuing as a comic opened the doors for folks who had never picked up a comic before to enter that wonderful world. Comics are amazing, and it's great to know that our Little Book that Could helped welcome new readers to the larger party.

    CS: Ha ha - I was going to say the same thing. I've consistently had people come up to me at comic book conventions to tell me Smallville is the first comic book they ever picked up and now they are hooked.

    What was your favorite storyline in the comic?

    BQM: "Olympus" - hands down. It was by far the most fun to write and gave me a chance to get a take on Wonder Woman down on paper that I'd been itching to write for a long time.

    CS: Sorry for the lack of diversity, but "Olympus" was my favorite too. That was some good writing, Mr. Miller. I loved the take on Wonder Woman's origin and how the two universes were tied together through Lois. Bryan wrote a fantastic Wonder Woman.

November 17, 2014: Art Exhibit Puts Superheroes in Renaissance ClothingPrint

Renaissance Superman This past weekend an art exhibit took place at the Grand Palais in Paris where photographer Sacha Goldberger displayed his fascinating series of portraits of Superheroes wearing Renaissance-style period clothing.

    Note that these aren't fakes, or photoshop fantasy: a small army of people, from costumers to cosplayers to models to hairdressers to make-up stylists were involved. So that's not a computer making Leia (Sabine Graissaguel) look like Carrie Fisher, or Superman (Jonathan Tuil) look like Christopher Reeve. That's their regular human faces, transformed with make-up and lighting.
