"Continuity" - Part 3

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller
Penciller: Ig Guara
Inker: JP Mayer
Colorist: Cat Staggs

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Smallville, having been a drama on TV, has benefits with this kind of storytelling and it lends itself very well to the comic. It has been action, action, action, almost relentlessly building up the scale of the crisis in 'Continuity' so far, so taking time out to have character moments that really delve into emotion and the rich history of the series is a brilliant change of pace. It was also something the story needed to give it some heart. Having Clark be a leader and strategist is very enjoyable. I miss him thinking with his brains and not his fists.

"Forgotten Heroes" - Part 1

Writer: Greg Pak
Artists: Jae Lee
Cover: Jae Lee

Reviewed by: Alisa Lea Gossage

    I liked the way the story flowed from Clark's predicament to Bruce's to Lois'. I especially liked the fact that Pak keeps the memory-lacking Clark and Bruce in character. Despite their memory loss they don't veer off into people we would not recognize. However, Bruce seems a little less brooding. This is an appropriate adjustment to his character since he no longer has the memory of the violent death of his parents.

    Oh, and naked Superman for the win.

    An almost naked superman flying off with Catwoman.

    Bruce Wayne's reaction when he sees the Batmobile for the 'first time.'

    Did I mention naked Superman?

"Fall of the Gods"

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Bruno Redondo, Xermanico
Inker: Julien Hugonnard-Bert
Cover: Jheremy Raapack with Santi Casas & David Lopez of Ikari Studio

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    The events of last issue make this one a serious letdown, which, again, follows what happened in Year One, beat for beat. A triumphant moment for Regime Superman, followed by a lackluster issue that does its best to subtract the gains of the previous installment. Suspension of disbelief is very much necessary for fiction, and Injustice doesn't do well when it adds more challenges to that need. All ready we're dealing with a dysfunctional Justice League, Superman, Batman, etc., in addition to dysfunctional supporting players like Commissioner Gordon. The story needs to be strong enough so that readers believe the world that has been envisioned, and it doesn't track when events lack basic sense. Black Canary survived the exploding Batplane and everything with Regime, yet Regime's heat vision did her in? That can be accepted, but when she tells us that her contacts are still viable, it reeks of malarkey. It's tying off a plot thread that no longer makes sense. Canary says that everything she saw, the world saw. Did they also see her trying to kill Regime with a Kryptonite bullet? We know that Regime will find a way out or just plow right through Canary's last hope of revenge, but this makes it seem even more of a last gasp thrash of a drowning woman. The powers rings are supposed to be the most powerful weapons in the universe, yet they don't offer any protection from having one's finger pulled off, arm ripped off, of being stabbed. It seems so long as the other ring-wearer wants to kill, you, you're dead, which makes the battle between forces moot, unless you're Mogo. Lastly, why does anyone trust Sinestro? He's Sinestro!

September 11, 2014: Superman-Themed Portrait Wins Archibald PrizePrint

Archibald Painting Vincent Fantauzzo's 'self-portrait' of his son Luca titled "All that's good in me" has taken out the Archibald Prize People's Choice Award for 2014. The Archibald Prize is awarded annually to the best portrait, 'preferentially of some man or woman distinguished in art, letters, science or politics, painted by any artist resident in Australasia'.

    Vincent Fantauzzo describes this painting as a self-portrait with his four-year-old son Luca as his subject and inspiration. 'Things have changed so much for me since Luca came into my life,' says Fantauzzo. 'He is my priority in every way. He has made me much more positive, and inspired me to notice and appreciate the little things in life. He depends on me and makes me who I am.

    'Luca loves to dress up. That's why I decided to paint him as Superman. If it was up to him, he would wear the outfit to bed every night. Now and again he does. I loved painting this portrait. We worked on it together and it is now a memory we can share forever. Children are so confident as artists and with their opinions. I hope he never loses that. I find the look in Luca's eye to be so innocent yet there is a strength and a vulnerability there too.'

    Born in the UK in 1977, Fantauzzo moved to Australia with his family as a child. A renowned portrait artist, this is his sixth time in the Archibald Prize. Last year he won the People's Choice Award for the third time for his portrait of actor Asher Keddie, whom he recently married. His portrait of Heath Ledger was highly commended in 2008 and in 2011 he won the Packing Room Prize with a painting of chef Matt Moran.

First awarded in 1921, you can find out more about the Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW website.

September 11, 2014: Superman Animated ParodiesPrint

Since his debut in 1938 Superman has been the subject of quite a few parodies across many different animated shows, popping up in person, as a caricature, or interpreted by other Hollywood animators - some authorized, others unauthorized. I've collected together information about those animated parodies with links to sites where you can watch the cartoons.

Goofy Groceries Goofy Groceries
First Aired: March 29, 1941
In 1941 Warner Bros. released a Merrie Melodies cartoon titled "Goofy Groceries" which featured what is possibly the first on-screen parody of Superman.

Watch the "Goofy Groceries" cartoon online.

Super Mouse Super Mouse
First Aired: October 16, 1942
From 1942-1943 seven "Super Mouse" cartoons were released by Terrytoons. "The Mouse of Tomorrow" (October 16, 1942), "Frankenstein's Cat" (November 27, 1942), "He Dood It Again" (February 5, 1943), "Pandora's Box" (June 11, 1943), "Super Mouse Rides Again" (August 6, 1943), "Down with Cats" (October 7, 1943) and "Lion and the Mouse" (November 12, 1943). Super Mouse later became known as Mighty Mouse.

You can watch six of the seven "Super Mouse" cartoons via YouTube.

Super Rabbit Super Rabbit
First Aired: April 3, 1943
In 1943 Warner Bros. released a Bugs Bunny cartoon "Super Rabbit" as a parody of the Fleischer series. Special carrots make Bugs into a superhero. The first villain he goes up against is Cottontail Smith who is a mad and evil Texas rabbit exterminator. Unfortunately, little by little, Bugs' powers start to wear off.

Watch the "Super Rabbit" cartoon online.

Snafuperman Snafuperman
First Screened: 1944
A wartime parody of the Fleischer Superman cartoons, created for the Army-Navy Screen Magazine and shown only to American soldiers. The "Private Snafu" cartoons were not released commercially until December 2010.

Watch the "Snafuperman" cartoon at YouTube.

Popeye She-Sick Sailors
First Aired: December 8, 1944
In 1944 Paramount released a Popeye cartoon titled "She-Sick Sailors" in which Olive is more interested in her Superman comic book than in Popeye. Bluto overhears this and dresses as Superman.

Watch the "She-Sick Sailors" cartoon at YouTube.

A Hatful of Dreams A Hatful of Dreams
First Released: July 6, 1945
In 1945 Paramount released a Puppetoon titled "A Hatful of Dreams" by George Pal in which a young boy becomes Superman thanks to a magic hat.

Note: Unfortunately I've been unable to find an online video of this Puppetoon.

Little Lulu Super Lulu
First Aired: November 21, 1947
In 1947 Paramount released a Little Lulu cartoon titled "Super Lulu" in which Lulu dreams of being a superhero, much to her father's anger.

Watch the "Super Lulu" cartoon at YouTube.

Stupor Duck Stupor Duck
First Aired: July 7, 1956
In 1956 Warner Bros. released another Superman parody, this time using Daffy Duck in the cartoon "Stupor Duck". In this parody of Superman, Daffy is "Cluck Trent," a mild-mannered reporter at a major metropolitan daily newspaper, Cluck takes a mild-mannered pill and hears something from the editor's office. The editor is watching a crime drama about Aardvark Ratnik, a fictional mad Russian villain who threatens to "blow up everything" in his hell-bent scheme for world domination. Believing that Aardvark is an actual villain who has announced his plans to the editor, Daffy becomes Stupor Duck, set to foil Aardvark Ratnik's schemes. He searches for the putative villain. One by one, he spots "examples" of Aardvark's supposed work: a skyscraper being razed to make way for a new city hall; a train wreck that's actually a stunt for a new Warner's movie; a sinking ship that turns out to be a submarine; and a nuclear missile that's actually a rocket headed for the moon (with Cluck/Daffy holding on for dear life).

    Full admission; I am not all that hot on the theme months that DC Comics have been doing to mark the birthday of the New 52. The Zero issues from 2012 were interesting and yielded some interesting stories. Last year they had the cash grab that was Villains Month and while some of the stories were fantastic and I appreciated what they were doing in the lead up to FOREVER EVIL some of the stories were average and others were, to be charitable, bad.

    Another full admission: I have not been reading FUTURES END. I've been buying it but I haven't been reading it because I have found such stories are better when you wait until they are complete to sit down and go through them. So there may be some things I miss during the course of this review because I haven't been keeping up with the main book.

    Full admission: I loved this book.
