Earth 2: Society #1

Mild Mannered Reviews - Earth 2: Society #1

Scheduled to arrive in stores: June 10, 2015

Cover date: August 2015

"Planetfall"

Writer: Daniel H. Wilson
Penciller: Jorge Jimenez
Inker: Jorge Jimenez
Cover: Jorge Jimenez
Variant Cover: Paulo Siqueira

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    I'm going into this Earth 2 series cold, meaning I haven't read any of the previous titles before now. As of this writing, I've been binge reading them. There's a reason for that, and it's the same reason I didn't give the book a perfect score. It's assumed that the buyer read the other books. Thus, the first chapter is not very reader friendly. Sure it gives a little background, but it's not enough for newbies.

    While much of the story centers around Batman, we do see Earth 2's Supergirl in flashbacks. I'm confident we'll see more of this world's heroes as the series progresses even though we don't see much of the Superman family at this point. Don't panic, fans, we'll see our favorites in the next books.

June 14, 2015: Iowa Names June 12 Brandon Routh DayPrint

Brandon Routh Day On Friday, at the Iowa State Historical Museum, "Superman Returns" actor Brandon Routh was presented with an official proclamation declaring June 12 to be forever known as Brandon Routh Day in Iowa. After the presentation, Brandon spoke about his life in Iowa, his career in Hollywood, and more...

    Q: What was getting cast as Superman like?

    It was a real relief. Getting cast was a seven-month process for me. There were a lot of ups and downs and a lot of failure and feeling like a failure. That can mess you up until you gain the perspective that it doesn't matter what others think. There are so many reasons for casting directors not to like you, from your hair to your eyes to maybe you remind them of this kid who used to beat them up at school. There's no point in wasting your life thinking about, Why don't they like me? Just tell yourself that you're awesome because we're all awesome in our own way.

    Q: After Superman, did you ever think you'd play a superhero again?

    I never thought I would be a superhero, maybe a villain. Once I did Superman, it was like what other superhero would I play? I don't think I would have taken the role of The Atom if the producer hadn't said they wanted Ray Palmer/The Atom to be the humor, to lighten up the show a little bit.

June 14, 2015: Superman Forever Podcast - Episode 92 - Catching Up with DC ComicsPrint

Superman Forever Podcast Bob Fisher became the permanent host of the Superman Forever Radio podcast with episode 79. On that episode Bob talks about his comic book origin in general and his origins with Superman in particular. His history with Superman began in 1956 with the Adventures of Superman TV show starring George Reeves and Bob's first Superman comic book was Superman #43 from a trunk full of old comics in his grandfather's barn.

"Superman has been part of my life since 1956. I hope that if you listen to the podcast you will enjoy my little babbles but will also understand why Superman has meant so much to me for almost 60 years." - Bob Fisher.

In Episode 92, Bob Fisher talks about the latest trailers from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Supergirl, and later in the show Bob talks about one of his favorite Superman stories from 1960, "Superman's Return to Krypton" in Superman #141. But before that Bob talks openly and candidly about his feelings of the current status of Superman at DC comics. All this and more!

June 14, 2015: Rare Superman Comic Book Stolen From Happy Harbor ComicsPrint

Superman #3 A rare copy of "Superman #3" was stolen from the Happy Harbor Comics store this past week, and store owner Jay Bardyla is hoping fans can help return the comic book to him.

    Jay Bardyla says he went to grab the book for a customer who had shown a particular interest in it, but it wasn't there.

    "We took a quick search around the store to see if it had been set aside or misplaced. It's not around anywhere so that's when we knew it had been stolen," says Bardyla.

    The comic was originally worth 10 cents when it came out in the winter of 1939. If it was in mint condition Superman No. 3 would be worth about $30,000. Bardyla says the copy in his store isn't in great condition, it has tears and noticeable splits, but it's still worth about $2,000.

    "It's a pretty rare book these days. You're going back to the dawn of superheroes," he says. "There's not a lot of these books left and certainly not a lot that are in very good condition."

"Superman #3" isn't a comic book you see too much of, so if you see it for sale online, in a pawn shop or elsewhere, contact Happy Harbor Comics via their website.

June 12, 2015: Dean Cain Loves Being Involved in the Superman WorldPrint

Dean Cain ComicBookResources.com caught up with Dean Cain for an interview, and asked him all about his continued involvement in the world of Superman, and how he feels about playing the role of Fred Danvers in the upcoming "Supergirl" TV series. Here's part of the interview...

    CBR News: After such a memorable run as Clark Kent and Superman on "Lois & Clark," what does it mean to you to be included in things like "Smallville" and now, "Supergirl?"

    Dean Cain: I love being part of the whole Superman lore. If I get a chance to do anything in the films or shows, I embrace it. It's not something I feel pigeonholed into since I've done so many other films and projects. I'm a fan, as well as someone who has gotten to play these characters. I embrace the heck out of it. I'll do it as often as I can. I'm really looking forward to doing some fun stuff on "Supergirl."

    What's impressed you most about "Supergirl's" leading lady, Melissa Benoist? What does she bring to this iconic character?

    Well, I've seen bits and pieces of her, but I've not seen the entire pilot. I've refused to watch the one that leaked. She brings a sense of goodness, and wonder and positivity. There's a certain essence you need to have to play the character, I believe, and she has it in spades. That smile she has is so disarming and genuine. Those are all traits you need to have to play Superman and Supergirl. Her character Kara's genuine excitement to help people and do the things that she does is amazing. I think Melissa is going to catapult to stardom, and she deserves it because she's extremely talented.
