First, there's some new residents to be found at Mount Justice: new team leader Nightwing, Wondergirl, Blue Beetle, Batgirl, Bumblebee and Beast Boy. And Young Justice will need all the help it can get as an alien presence has infiltrated Earth, while certain members of the Justice League are forced to stand trial at the criminal hearing off-world.

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.

November 14, 2014: "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" Shot in IMAXPrint

Dawn of Justice Variety reports that a spokeswoman for Warner Bros. has confirmed that Zack Snyder is filming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" with IMAX cameras.

    News that the superhero matchup would use the cameras first bubbled up on Twitter after a user observed the filmmakers as they shot scenes in Chicago.

    Snyder's “Man of Steel” showed in Imax, but didn't use the Imax cameras, so this marks the director's first time shooting in the format.

    And so an era comes to a close!

    A new addition to Clark's family as heavily pregnant Chloe finally gives birth.

    Lois and Clark share some much needed and much missed time together as comic book history's first couple. The scene with Lois parachuting away was a skillful yet quiet hint at what Lois was before the New 52 ruined her character. I'm also glad Clark finally after so long embraced the moniker we all know and love - Superman!
