Horrible Music Videos...or Musical - Superman The Musical

Three words....Superman: the Musical. That's all I have to say.

Some things to notice:
No, really, WTH????
Who thought this was a good idea? Bono should have watched this and said to himself: "Hmm...maybe a Spider-Man musical isn't such a good idea."

Graphic Novels - Silver Age Superman: Superman #196

Welcome back to Superman Month. This time I will be going over a random issue from the Silver Age.I don't have much to say about this age, except that just about everything like Brainiac, Metallo, Supergirl, Kandor, Superpets (?????), the Fortress of Solitude and a whole lot of other things came out of this age. This is also the age where Superman was at his most powerful. Super strength, Super speed, x-ray vision, Finger Beams (or Gay Pride Beams, thanks Caitlyn), and most of all Super-dickery, Superman had them all. Anyway, today's issue has two stories, with both ranging from weird to "Ehhh???" So here we go as we leave the Pre-Crisis age:

Superman #196
Writers: Bill Finger and ?
Artists: Wayne Boring and Al Plastino

Creative Time!! - Superman and the X-Men

And here is another cover I tried to play with. I decided to use my favorite X-Men team and my favorite DC superhero. This was probably the hardest one to do.

The X-Men  "IN SPACE" (echoes)!!!!

TV Talk - Superman by Timm and Dini

Superman: Take it easy Batman. I have another way we can interrogate this guy. 
(Superman then throws man out of window.)

Welcome back to TV Talk. Today, I'm going to talk about Superman as animated by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini. If you don't know who Timm and Dini are, well, look at this: AWESOME!!! Anyway, I'm going to try to do what I did with Smallville here: Background, Likes, Dislikes, and Best Episodes. So here we go:

Graphic Novels - Bronze Age Superman: Action Comics #439

Graphic Novels is brought to you by the guys who made Spinach.

Spinach: that stuff that makes you stronger (as well as your forearms the size of your head)!

Welcome back to Superman Month on Random Thoughts. Today, I’ll be going over a random issue from the Bronze Age: Action Comics #439. But first, here’s a little backstory on this age. This age began in the early 70’s (basically when Dennis O’Neil started writing on Superman) to COIE, which was about 1985. This age in general was a bit more social commentary-ish and a little darker than the Silver Age of comics, and Superman had his share of Social Commentary and dark stuff (read “Whatever Happened To the Man Of Tomorrow?”). Today’s issue is not that. Clark also got a new job during this age: news reporter at WGBS. That’s right. Clark Kent had a Tom Brokaw-type job and somehow was able to keep his identity a secret. Well, after that funny tidbit, on to the issue!

TV Talk - Smallville

Hmm...Symbolism much?

So, today I am going to talk about a show that has been mentioned on this blog before: SMALLVILLE. It's true that Clark didn't become Superman until the last episode, but this is still a Superman show . I gonna try to do this type of format for the tv shows:  background, likes and dislikes of the show. I already did the best episodes in the other post.

Random Pics of the Month - September

Graphic Novels - Golden Age Superman: Action Comics #23

Well, here I go in looking at some random issues from each era of Superman. Today, I will start with the Golden Age by looking at Action Comics #23. From what I know, the Golden Age began in the late 30's and ended at the end of the 40's or something like that. In the beginning, Superman wasn't as strong (but he did get stronger over time) and mostly faced gangsters, evil scientists, soldiers, Nazis, and the occasional birdman. Also, this Superman was hardcore...and I mean, Hardcore. So let's get to it!

Action Comics #23
Writer: Jerry Siegel
Artist: Joe Shuster

(I'll note that I am reading an digital version of the issue I got on comixology. Not too bad, but I'll stick to the paper for a little while longer.)
