Mild Mannered Reviews - Smallville: Chaos - Chapter #10

Released Digitally: August 8, 2014

"Chaos" - Part 10

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller
Artists: Agustin Padilla
Colorist: Carrie Strachan

Reviewed by: Matt Schorr

    Another decent chapter in this tale, but a somewhat unsatisfying one.

    First off, the whole conversation about Supergirl's skirt seems a bit out of nowhere. It's never been brought up before. Have readers been fussing over Kara's costume in this series? Is this Miller inserting commentary into his work in response to something of which I wasn't aware? Did I miss something?

    I mean, I've heard complaints over New 52 Supergirl's costume, but those were due to the fact a teenage girl was wearing something so provocative. I shared those complaints, in fact. But Smallville's Supergirl? Not so much.

    If have missed something here, perhaps someone can enlighten me.

August 11, 2014: "Young Justice: Season One" Available on Blu-Ray Tomorrow!Print

Young Justice Crew WARNER ARCHIVE COLLECTION BRINGS YOUNG JUSTICE: SEASON ONE TO BLU-RAY ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 12

Warner Archive Collection continues to bring fan-favorite television series to glorious 1080p high definition presentation with the Tuesday, August 12 release of “Young Justice: Season One” on Blu-ray.

The two-disc, 26-episode “Young Justice: Season One” features Greg Weisman (Gargoyles) and Brandon Vietti's (Batman: The Brave and The Bold) critically acclaimed and fan-approved tale of titanic teen heroes. Strap in and get ready for this dashing and daring new take on Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis as they splash across the 16x9 widescreen.

In this first season, a 'junior' Justice League bands together for purposes both light and dark – to honor the legacies they will one day inherit, and to be the Justice League's secret weapon. From within their HQ The Cave, they embark on covert missions that would be impossible for the high profile Justice League. Batman (naturally) is their mission handler, Red Tornado supervises and Black Canary trains them. But the lads and ladies of Young Justice push their mission envelope and discover the dark secrets hidden behind the scenes of this alternate DC universe.

Order “Young Justice: Season One” on Blu-ray from our Online Store now!

August 11, 2014: Batman is in his Mid-40s in "Batman v Superman"Print

Dawn of Justice Talking to the Asbury Park Press, executive producer Michael Uslan has confirmed that Batman/Bruce Wayne will be in his mid-40s in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", while defending the decision to cast Ben Affleck in the role.

    "We've been through this I don't know how many times already," Uslan said. "Every time a director makes a creative, out-of-the-box-thinking decision on casting, it tends to get this. I remember even the 'Iron Man' (2008) guys got it on Robert Downey Jr. initially.

    "Of course, we got it intensely when another genius, Chris Nolan, chose Heath Ledger to play the Joker (in 2008's 'The Dark Knight'). And it was a huge outcry: 'How can a guy who just played a gay cowboy (in 2005's 'Brokeback Mountain') play the Joker? You're going to destroy the greatest villain ever, this is going to be a laugh.'

    "So, this has happened time and again, and it happened with Affleck. To go back to the original thought of Bruce Wayne in his mid-40s, I think he's going to be extraordinary."

August 10, 2014: A Look Back at "Superman #1" From 1939Print

Superman #1 The Q-Collection Facebook page has begun posting a number of full panel pages from the 1939 edition of "Superman #1", examining in detail this iconic comic book, which is part of the Q-Collection's archive and preservation project.

    The middle panel may look familiar to you. It should. This panel was redrawn to become the cover of the 1938 ACTION COMICS #1. Undoubtedly this is the most recognized superhero drawing of all time.

    REMINDER: There are 190 copies of this comic book known to exist. This is one of those copies. Overstreet #44 lists a NM- copy at a breathtaking $800,000.

    John, our project founder, has to be given full credit for his wheeling and dealing in the early 2000s to get hold of this copy for the Q-Project. The SUPERMAN binder that this comic will reside in will without a doubt become the most checked out Q-Collection binder in the US LIBRARY OF CONGRESS. And, in the years to come, it may become the most checked out book of any type in that incredible library.

    That library, as you may know, already has one copy of this comic in their collection. They've had it professionally deacified and now proudly state that the comic will last between 500 and 800 years in their care. Of course it is now too fragile for anyone to examine - not even researchers. So it sits, unread, waiting its final fate in the centuries to come. It will eventually become very valuable DUST.

    NOT SO THIS COPY: This copy will survive up to 10,000 years. And it can be checked out and read cover-to-cover over-and-over-and-over once it has been donated to the LIBRARY OF CONGRESS. And anyone in the world can read it for FREE.

    This is a GIFT from our founder and his advisors to the children (including you and me) of the world for the next ten millennium
