With wonder-con being around the corner DC put out character teaser trailers for the upcoming Justice League movie, they also hinted at releasing an official trailer afterwards. A day later here we are, and as promised, DC gave us the official trailer.
From the looks of it Justice League is shaping up to the turning point for DC, when it comes to their films. With Batman v Superman falling short, many fans think Wonder-Woman and Justice League are the movies which are going to start the DC film franchises off right
Continuing to set the gold standard in comics preservation, IDW Publishing’s Library of American Comics, in partnership with DC Entertainment, will release the amazing never-before reprinted adventures of Superman that appeared in the Sunday newspapers for more than twenty-five years. The strips will be releases in in chronological order in three sub-sets: the 1940s Golden Age, the 1950s Atomic Age, and the 1960s Silver Age.
The first volume in the Superman: Golden Age Sundays series will collect 170 sequential Sundays, from May 9, 1943 through August 4, 1946, beginning where the Superman Sunday Classic book by DC Comics and Kitchen Sink Press left off. These World War II-era stories feature work by legendary artists such as Wayne Boring and Jack Burnley.
“We’re printing the series in an oversized 9.25” x 12” format,” says editor Dean Mullaney, “so that readers can fully enjoy these glorious full-color tabloidSundays.”
The stories include the complete “Superman’s Service to Servicemen” series, which ran from late Summer of 1943 until a few months after the Second World War ended. In these human interest tales, Superman responds to requests from men and women of the armed services, as well as their family members back home. In supporting troop morale, Superman travels from the Mediterranean theatre to the bleak Aleutian Islands to the steamy South Pacific. He helps a wounded Army Air Corps pilot return home to witness the birth of his twins; solves numerous romantic misunderstandings; checks up on mothers for their worried sons overseas…while simultaneously stopping enemy torpedoes, bombs, and bullets!
In a clever transition to the post-War world, there’s a flashback to Superman’s origin and Clark Kent’s first assignment at the Daily Planet, followed by a thrilling inter-stellar saga in which Superman comes face to face with Queen Arda of the planet Suprania, who threatened to kill Lois Lane unless the Man of Steel agrees to become her King!

DC is on an art binge right now, showing off sweet cover work for upcoming releases, today they also have a shot of Detective Comics #9 and it’s an action packed one.

Looking for a lighter touch or a more family friendly book in the DC line-up? They have it covered with a new series pushing out titled Superman Family Adventures, it’s an easy read that comes off with a story and art that mimic the playfulness found in shows like Power Puff Girls and similar shows. The dialog is short and fast, the scenes aren’t detailed into personal lives and drama and it’s quick entertaining action throughout the preview with bright panels through the preview.
While deep stories and thrills are awesome to have, sometimes it’s nice to break away for a little light reading. Check out the pages included and the summary at DC for more on the new series.
Entertainment Weekly secured a preview of issue #7 to Justice League this week, the article securing information that our back-story arc about the league is coming to a close and we’ll get a taste of the heroes acting out in 2012. The issue is set to demonstrate many things, not just their actions and behavior but also the public perception of the group and the experience of the “Villain’s Journey”. It’s a hard hit that fans will see, they’ll also get a dose of SHAZAM! in a backup story as well as this new story picks up speed and gets readers on the present day journey.
The 4 pages of tease that EW has are great to open into, it’s almost a form of torture though. Seeing the desperation of the people and the vast amount of faith dumped into the league only to see the words “But that will change” as they arrive in time to save the people from a desperate hour. Fortunately the book goes on sale tomorrow so there shouldn’t be too much delay if you really need to jump in after catching these pages.
