Batman/Superman Movie CONFIRMED at SDCC ’13

batman-superman-logo Confirmed by Zack Snyder at SDCC ’13 today: there’ll be a new Superman movie and Batman will be in it,. Apparently it’s going to be an antagonistic relationship to begin with, as after announcing the project, the following quote from The Dark Knight Returns was read:

I want you to remember, Clark… in all the years to come, in your most private moments, I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you…

Of all the questions this raises, chief among them has to be: Christian Bale or no Christian Bale? I was always under the impression that a)he was out of the Batman franchise after the three films and b)the universe that CB Batman inhabited was NOT the DC Universe that Sooperman inhabited.  So many unknowns!

With a Jolt, My Mind Awakens…Chapter Sixty-Two: Remembering Dick Giordano…

Artist/Editor Dick Giordano, who passed away in 2010, would’ve celebrated his 80th birthday today.


I am fond of the Jim Aparo reference…


Dick Giordano was probably the only artist who could incarcerate the Riddler without incurring my wrath…


Artist team-up with Neal Adams – Had this scotch-taped to the bedroom door in my youth…next to my brother’s collage of the 1986 New York Mets!


A memorable portrait of Batman at ease, one that frequently comes to mind at the conclusion of a productive day…
