September 30, 2015: Curt Swan's Artwork at the Center of New "The Swan King" NovelPrint

The Swan King "The Swan King", a new fictional novel by Kevin Greene, focuses on the disappearance of a particular piece of comic book hisory - a Curt Swan Superman cover - and how it prompts a murder. While the novel way well fit in the Mystery genre, its main character isn't a detective... he's a comic book art dealer.

Newsarama.com sat down for a chat with the author to discuss "The Swan King". Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    The specific Curt Swan piece at the center of this, Action Comics #305. Why that one, an do you know who actually owns it?

    Greene: The specific art is the cover to Action Comics #305, which features Clark Kent switching to Superman while three criminals are watching through a trick mirror. One of them has sold the secret to Superman's identity for a million bucks while another plots to bump off Clark Kent at the Planet with some Gold Kryptonite. Another crazy 60's Superman story. And I have no idea who owns the art. [Laughs] I've looked online but could not figure it out. So I just ran with it.

    So what can you tell us about the lead in this, William Farrar? Is he a detective himself?

    Greene: No, William Farrar is just a normal guy. Well, a normal guy who loves comics and sci-fi and collectibles and sells original comic art. So, not so normal, I guess. He is good at finding pieces of art that people want but that's pretty much the extent of his detective skills. He just walks into a situation that becomes a lot more than he expected.

    And why are people in pursuit of this Curt Swan piece willing to murder to get it?

    Greene: Well... that's the mystery, isn't it? I will say that it is completely comics related. That much I will say.

"The Swan King" will be released on February 11, 2016. Pre-order the book from our Online Store now or order it for your Kindle.

September 30, 2015: Mehcad Brooks Talks About Being the 'Dude in Distress' on "Supergirl"Print

James Olsen In an interview with MTV.com, Mehcad Brooks speaks about playing James Olsen, his character's relationship with Kara and Lucy Lane, and possibly playing the part of the "Dude in Distress". Here's part of the interview...

    MTV: How involved will Jimmy get with Kara's nighttime, crime-fighting activities?

    Brooks: Oh, Jimmy gets his hands filthy; Jimmy needs latex gloves. No, he's kind of - for lack of a better phrase, the mentor of what she's doing, because he's the only person amongst her circle that's actually seen this and done this kind of thing before; its not his first time. So he's there for at least moral support, or just to keep her safe, or give her some kind of perspective. But at the same time, he's also allowing this person to come into their own; allowing this person to be the best that she can be, and just really being a stable foundation for that. At the same time, juxtapose that with his own struggle; he's got his own struggle of trying to come out of Superman's shadow as Superman's best friend, and be his own man. They're finding each other at a time when they really need these sort of external examples of each other, so, it's a really cool dynamic.

    MTV: Being in league with a superhero, though, usually leads to a whole lot of dude-or-damsal in distress situations. Is it the same with Jimmy and Kara, and if so, what's it like having tiny Melissa carry you around to save the day?

    Brooks: There's been a couple times where I've been the dude in distress, so I'm all good with that. Women have been quote-unquote superheroes in our society for years - my mother is a superhero to me, my grandmother as well, and I think that we're just getting to a place in our society where we're actually recognizing their contribution in the way that it should be. So I'm happy to be a part of that, I'm happy to be the dude in distress.

    My mom saved my ass more times than I can count; my grandma saved my ass more times than I can count. If it wasn't for the powerful women in my life, I would not be where I'm at. All men have been that dude in distress, and we're just too prideful to admit it. But women have come to our aid, whether it's a girlfriend, a wife, a mother, a sister, a best friend. I don't know a man who could say he's at where he's at without a woman. So I'm okay with that. Go ahead and carry me through the fire Melissa, go ahead girl!

September 29, 2015: Michael Shannon Makes Up Stuff About "Batman v Superman"Print

Zod's Body It seems we really can't trust anything Michael Shannon says about his involvement in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", with the actor admitting in a new interview with Screen Rant that he simply likes to "make up stuff" about his role in the movie when people ask him about it.

    So what about this story that you were wearing flippers on your hands on the set of Batman v Superman? Flippers? I think that might be a prime example of my scatological humor. People ask me a lot about Batman v Superman and I really don't have anything to say about it, so sometimes I just make up stuff, which I'm sure Warner Bros. is really happy about.

    We saw you in the trailer in a body bag. Are you just in the body bag or do you get to do something cool in the movie?

    I run for President (laughs). Uh, no, you know, I think it's better left unsaid. I mean, when does the movie come out?


    Yeah, I don't want to spoil it for anybody. Yeah, no comment.

(The "Batman v Superman" comments start at 3 minutes and 42 seconds into the video).

    Born on the doomed planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped at the same time as her cousin, Superman, but didn't arrive on Earth until years later after being lost. Raised by her adopted family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to hide the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin. Years later, at age 24, living in National City and working as an assistant for Catco Worldwide Media mogul Cat Grant, Kara has spent so many years trying to fit in that she forgot to ever stand out. All that changes when she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always destined to be. With the help of Daily Planet photographer James Olsen, her bioengineer sister Alex, and the research of the super-secret, off-the-grid Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), who are tasked with keeping the Earth safe from aliens, Kara takes to the skies to protect her world.
