oh, didn't realise it was back from the dead! The death of the comic and the end of FearTWD must have confused me...

Speaking of of early-days Superman stories, I just re-read Superman: American Alien last night, and it's a terrific example of the genre. Seven standalone slices of life, from childhood to early superhero days - the final story (where he meets Lobo, the first person who's a match for him in a fight) is illustrated by Jock. As the back cover says, it isn't a Superman book, it's the story of a Kansas farmboy whio happens to be super. Recommneded

Possibly of interest to JJA watchers, "Solving The Mystery Of JJ Abrams" tries to figure out where the last Star Wars movie is going by reverse-engineering the only project JJA has ever seen through from start to finish, and it's amusing to note that some of its conclusions were independently reached by the likes of Red Letter Media as jokes, particularly the use of time travel/alternate timelines/dreams to sidestep the problem of not being to do exactly what he wants in the confines of known lore.

With apologies to Mr Power, due to an error on my part I incorrectly spelt his first name as Mark and not, as it should have been, Marc. He describes the awful experience that he went through on the Niall Boylan show on Classic Hits FM.

I'm shocked by how many threads I manage to kill with my inane comments....

Apologies for ruining the perfect capstone to this godawful thread.

I ploughed through Season 1 of Castle Rock over the past fortnight.

Initial impressions weren't too positive, but it really took off in the last few episodes (7 and 9 were particularly excellent).
Then we got to the final 30 minutes of the last episode and JJ (and I'm arbitrarily blaming JJ here) pulled a JJ and it turns out the penultimate (and best) episode was seemingly all a lie.
I can't do this anymore, JJ. I just can't.

As for the art I think it has some of the best I've seen from Romita. As with Miller's writing, it has a certain charm to it. At times proportions are off, but I tend to enjoy it.


The key to the best of Romita Jnr's artwork is the inking - which is why his collaborations with Al Williamson will always be the creme de la creme to my eye.

Superman Year One was pretty fun stuff overall - I'm enjoying Millers recent output and have already pre-ordered The Golden Child.

I once drunkenly told Biz that he was an artistic God.
He replied "I know".
Which was pretty fu*kin spot on.
