Time continues to get thrown around as two mighty titans battle it our for the life or death of Superman. When Grant Morrison gets his hands on a character, he can’t let go, and with this series, it seems to be quite literal.
DC is still hitting its stride with all the zero issues being released this month, and Action Comics #0 by Grant Morrison and Ben Oliver is here and ready for a Major Spoilers review.
One year later, Grant Morrison is still spinning his tale of Superman that will hopefully come full circle by the time he leaves with issue #16. That moment is still four months away, and we need to see how well he handles the first Superman in this Major Spoilers Review of Action Comics #12.
Yesterday, news broke that Grant Morrison would be leaving two big titles at DC Comics, and my not write superhero books again.
In which Morrison kills Clark Kent…
…FOR REALZ, YO!
Grant Morrison has given us his interpretation of the Golden Age Superman, but what happens when he takes on the Silver Age?
While the news that Nicolas Cage’s copy of Action Comics #1 went for over a million dollars in auction, there are other not so great editions of the issue still floating around, and they also command a high price.
Metallo revealed! Steel arrives! Robots rampage, cities shrink, and Superman wears white after Labor Day!
John Henry Irons dons the steel costume to assist Superman in this week’s installment of Action Comics.
While there is no confirmation that the copy of Action Comics #1 that sold yesterday in auction belonged to Nicolas Cage, the comic did bring the seller $2.16 million. The online auction started at $1.00 with a $900,000 reserve, and by the time it was over, someone made a pretty penny for a copy of the first appearance of Superman.
The copy that sold Wednesday evening on ComicConnect was in better condition than the previous most expensive comic (Action Comics #1 which sold for $1.5 million), and if this is indeed Cage’s comic, he made a huge profit as he originally purchased Action Comics #1 for $150,000 in 1997. There’s no word on who purchased the comic, and considering Cage had his copy stolen years ago (and then recovered) I wouldn’t want anyone knowing I have the money sitting around to spend on this title.
Superman may be the protector of the City of Tomorrow, but can he save the world today? And what does he do when the citizens turn against the one who wants to protect them all?
