Revisiting Superman: Earth One

The year was 2010. Fanboys and fangirls were living in a whole new world. Thanks to Iron Man, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, comic book movies were finally stepping away from being laughable participants in the film industry and becoming true Hollywood blockbusters. It seemed like comic book characters were suddenly being embraced by the public with open arms all over again (similar to the half-rise in comic book movies that sprung up after Tim Burton’s first Batman film).

Krypton (2018 - Present)

What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, Krypton follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who is faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his future grandson. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg finds himself in a difficult position.  He must redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves while being challenged by familiar DC characters Brainiac (Blake Ritson) and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos). 

Krypton is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “The Dark Knight Trilogy”) through his Phantom Four banner, alongside Cameron Welsh, who serves as showrunner. In addition to Cuffe, Sipos and Ritson, the show also stars Georgina Campbell (“Broadchurch”), Elliot Cowan (“Da Vinci’s Demons”), Ann Ogbomo (“World War Z”), Rasmus Hardiker (“Your Highness”), Wallis Day (“Will”), Aaron Pierre (“Tennison”) and Ian McElhinney (“Game of Thrones”). Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

Building Boyzarro: Patrick Gleason Expands the Bizarroverse

Since the launch of Rebirth in 2016, Patrick Gleason and Peter J. Tomasi have reinvigorated the Man of Steel through a series of powerful standalone stories in the pages of SUPERMAN. They’ve featured Lex Luthor, Eradicator, Apokolips and Mister Oz, among many others, but not Bizarro. Not until today’s SUPERMAN #42.

Road to #1000: Captive of the Red Sun

Superman is inherently a science fiction character. His origin begins when this super-powered alien is rocketed from his dying world—a world more advanced than Earth in almost every single way. The Man of Steel has many adventures that fall within the realm of science fiction. He has allies from the far future, one of his biggest adversaries is an alien AI that likes to shrink entire cities, and he has a fortress filled with wondrous futuristic technology.


Covers to Reflect Different Eras of Superman’s 80-Year History

With ACTION COMICS speeding toward its landmark 1,000th issue on Superman’s 80th anniversary (April 18), DC today revealed a series of variant covers for this must-have issue, capturing the look and feel of the Man of Steel throughout different eras of his 80-year run.

Road to #1000: Who is Luthor?

A strong hero must always be confronted by a strong villain. Batman has the Joker, Green Lantern has Sinestro and Superman has Lex Luthor. Luthor’s comic book debut does not disappoint and features forward-looking comic storytelling that makes it seem like this is a modern comic book. So let’s put on your kevlar helmet and prepare for war as we continue our look at the ten must-read issues of Action Comics.

The creative talent of ACTION COMICS writer Dan Jurgens and the SUPERMAN team of Patrick Gleason and Peter J. Tomasi have brought legions of Superman fans story after story filled with action, humor, emotion and candor--traits that have continued to present Superman as an enduring symbol of hope, optimism, truth and justice. This May, the conclusions to their epic runs serve as the centerpieces of two special one-shot issues.

Road to #1000: A Super-Kiss For a Super-Man!

ACTION COMICS is soon to be the very first comic book to ever hit 1,000 issues. Much like Superman bounding into existence as the first superhero, his own book will be the first comic of its kind. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I’ve put together a list of my ten must-read issues of Action Comics.

Milk Wars: Superpowers Get Strange

Let’s step back in time to when we were first teased with the news of a Justice League of America and Doom Patrol crossover titled…“Milk Wars.”

Kind of hard to forget, right? I mean, the name is one thing, but the beautiful art that accompanied the news—drawn by the insanely talented Frank Quietly—was something else altogether. The image of a milkman floating like Superman and holding a crisp glass of milk as rays of light brilliantly shine behind him was really all I needed to see. Even if it didn’t make any sense.
