What a fantastic finale! It showed no matter the scenario, Kon-El would always eventually be a worthy Superman. Yes, he was brash and unthinking, but he was truly thinking with the heart of a hero despite the odds of three against one. The characterizations were on point and brilliantly done. Kon realizing the consequences played out so well that his ultimate sacrifice dwarfed that of Kon in Return To Krypton. Superman though noble was a tad condescending in his treatment of Kon, mostly due to the events on his own Earth but even he is worn down after seeing Kon submit to their plan. I must admit if I were in the same position, with Kon's power, I probably would have done the same as him, but I too don't think I'd have been as courageous as he with his sacrifice. Nicieza delivers a chapter, like Dan Jurgens that proves better than the core story it spins off from.

"It's been out there, but it's official. We are going to see Doomsday," he told the Shanlian on Batman podcast.
Whether you believe any of the above rumors or not is up to you. Warner Bros. have not confirmed nor denied the Doomsday rumors. We'll just have to wait and see...
"'DC Comics Bombshells' is one of the wildest things I've ever had the pleasure to create - a story of the DC heroines, all the DC heroines, in a crisis that defines themselves as well as their generation," said Bennett in a press statement announcing the series. "I cannot possibly tell you how excited and grateful I am to be involved in a story this massive and inventive."
In the same release, Sauvage said, "When I was contacted to work on this book, I was attracted by the retro style of the statues, not to mention the most iconic female characters of DC are represented. I spent a lot of time searching for references to be as accurate as possible to the story and habits of this time period, but keeping in mind it's a parallel universe, so I can take some freedom on details."
Superman related August titles featuring the DC Bombshells variant covers will include: Action Comics #43, Batman/Superman #23, Justice League #43, Justice League of America #3, Superman #43, and Superman/Wonder Woman #20.
GLY: Working on the first superhero is both thrilling and intimidating. It's been an amazing learning experience. Superman's currently starring in four books from DC, so I've gotten to learn from the other writers and artists on Team Superman. We're trying to push the Man of Steel in a new direction, while respecting what came in the past. His new costume, which debuted a month or two ago, is a reflection of that. It's simple and modern - just a T-shirt and jeans - but the "S"-shield is from his past. We decided to go with the old black, red and yellow "S" from the Fleischer [Studios] cartoons. It's been a blast.
Q: How does your Superman differ from anyone else's - what makes him "Yang-ian" - even within his long and established history?
GLY: This is really up to the readers to decide. When you write a character with as big and as long of a legacy as Superman's, you look for parts of his past that resonate with you. I love how Superman reflects the immigrant experience. I love the outsider/insider dynamic at the heart of who he is. And I love how the whole idea of a secret identity is both reflective of, and at odds with, the Information Age.
"You just don't see original art from the 40's that much, especially not covers with Superman," comic art coordinator Barry Sandoval explained.
Believe it or not, we're told this artwork would've sold for just 10c back in the day, but on May 28th the bid is expected to soar up to $130,000 - or more!
"This was basically a half a year before Pearl Harbor so it was interesting to see that they were already doing war-themed covers, even though the US hadn't entered the war yet at that point," Sandoval added.
Yep, legendary comic artist Fred Ray perfectly depicted the man of steel marching arm in arm with America's servicemen, ready to save the day!

In an alternate reality, the Comrade of Steel shows his true colors, dressed in a red and grey costume which ominously reflects the militaristic look of the Cold War era. Expertly sculpted in one quarter scale, the champion of the common worker stands 25" tall over his Soviet insignia, where he fights the never-ending battle for Stalin, socialism, and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact. Soon to be joined by his ally Wonder Woman, and the vigilante Batmankoff, comic book fans prepare yourselves for the ultimate Superman: Red Son collection!
