Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman: American Alien #7Print

Superman: American Alien #7

Mild Mannered Reviews - Superman: American Alien #7 (of 7)

Scheduled to arrive in stores: May 18, 2016

Cover date: July 2016

"Valkyre"

Writer: Max Landis
Penciller: Jock
Inker: Jock

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

It took seven issues but it finally hit me. The answer to the question, "Why didn't I like this series beyond the first issue?"

It wasn't for me.

This series was for a newer reader or a reader that was more open to seeing Superman's early days explored in a modern context from a more introspective standpoint.

That's not me.

So all of my problems with this final issue are kind of moot. I am not the audience for Landis' dialogue, which tries to be amusing as well as hard hitting. The conversation between Superman and Lobo where Lobo asks why Superman is trying to protect dead people is meant to be funny and to some it probably was. Just not me. The whole thing with Clark talking to Jimmy at the beginning about Lois leaving before he wakes up was meant to humanize the character and make him more relatable but it just didn't hit me that way. To me it came off as trying to be edgy and failing. The only scene I got anything out of was the final one and even that fell flat.

May 25, 2016: Will Calista Flockhart Remain on "Supergirl"?Print

Calista Flockhart With "Supergirl" moving its production from Los Angeles to Vancouver to facilitate the show's transfer from CBS to The CW, the concern was that some of the cast may not want to make the move themselves, particularly Calista Flockhart (who plays Cat Grant). TVline.com jumps in with an answer...

You may lose her for an episode or two (or three... since there's no way Calista Flockart will be moving to Canada full-time), but I highly doubt you'll lose her completely. CW prez Mark Pedowitz confirmed that Flockhart "wants to continue with the show." Now all sides just need to figure out the scheduling.

As for the Kara/Winn shippers wondering if Winn is going to continue to pine after Kara now that Siobhan Smythe is out of the picture...

Jeremy Jordan, who plays Winn, was glad to see the CBS-turned-CW series dial down his character's puppy-dog pining - "I don't know if we need to see it in every episode, like we did at the beginning of the season" - but says, "I certainly think that it's not over." Nor will "losing the girl" get any easier. "I think it's going to be little difficult for him to him to see basically his two best friends together," Jordan says of the Kara/James coupling. After all, "He and James are super-close now, and they all work at the same place!"

Barry and Kara After a Sneak Peek at the "DC Universe: Rebirth #1" and "Superman #52" comic books, the latest DC All Access catches up with "The Flash" star Grant Gustin to talk about "Supergirl" joining The CW for its second season and whether we'll see the two come together next season.

May 24, 2016: Ben Affleck Excited About Working with Geoff JohnsPrint

Ben Affleck In a short video posted online, Ben Affleck holds a copy of "DC Universe: Rebirth #1" in his hands and exclaims how excited he is to be working with Geoff Johns.

"I would read anything by Geoff Johns. He's a @#$& genius, I love him. I love DC, I'm really excited about where it's going, and I couldn't be more honored and thrilled to be on board and part of this DC universe."

The video is obviously designed to promote the "Rebirth" comic book event, which Geoff Johns is a big part of, but also goes a long way to showing that Affleck is excited to be working with him on the upcoming solo Batman film and "Justice League" movies, with Johns having recently been appointed to co-run DC Films for Warner Bros.

May 24, 2016: Rare Copy of "Superman #1" Lands in Toronto Comic ShopPrint

Superman #1 A restored edition of "Superman #1" from 1939, with a value of around $45,000, will be on display at The Beguiling comic book shop in Mirvish Village, Toronto.

Superman #1 was first published in 1939, and according to store owner Peter Birkemoe, only about 200 copies are still in existence.

Mint condition copies of Superman #1 can fetch as much as $500,000, Birkemoe said. However, the comic at The Beguiling has been restored, and is expected to sell for a comparatively paltry $45,000.

Still, Birkemoe said the comic "is by far the most rare and valuable comic we have ever offered for sale."

The comic book won't be on display long, as it is expected to sell fast.

The Beguiling comic book store is located at 601 Markham Street, Mirvish Village, Toronto.

May 24, 2016: Samsung Tweets "Injustice" TeasePrint

Injustice

Samsung Mobile posted a cryptic video/gif on Twitter earlier today saying, "Injustice is about to be served."

Herein lies a mystery...

"Injustice: Gods Among Us" has been out on all consoles and mobile devices for quite a while now. Indeed the "injustice" comic book series is almost about to conclude, and the biggest update in recent months to the game was the addition of movie/TV characters.

With this announcement specifically coming from Samsung, perhaps it's hinting at an Occulus VR Special Edition specific to Samsung (similar to the recent "Temple Run VR") because an "Injustice" sequel for Android only seems unlikely.

As DC Comics themselves retweeted this teaser it could be that a "Rebirth" edition of the game, with the new costumes and characters could be on the way.

Stay tuned...

UPDATE: Samsung's announcement was for a Batman-Themed Galaxy S7 Edge "Injustice" edition to commemorate the third anniversary of the "Injustice: Gods Among Us" Mobile Game.

Thanks to Adam Dechanel for the lead on this information.
