SIB Reviews: The Wednesday Comics Superman strip

You can read the whole thing for yourself here, or I can summarize for you.










"I'm Superman and I have feelings! Where's my Fallout Boy CD and kryptonite razor! Waaah!"


The rest of Wednesday comics ranges from good to excellent, by the way. You should go get it.

It came from San Diego

CBR coverage of the Superman panel. Nothing really blowing my mind, but we'll see. I am really looking forward to Adventure Comics.

Also, this:

Hey!

Comic Con is fab - yeh, i'm one of those pms-ing Twilight bitches taking over the floor, New Moon roxx!!!

Warner bros reps are grabbing random people at the show and giving them a sneak peek at the new Superman costume for Smallville Me and friends were grabbed by one girl (details below) and taken to a room (down the stairs next to the giant starbucks) and shown it.

it's gobsmackingly awesome! no spandex it looked like leather, its one suit, the top is blue at front and back, red on sides and arms, the trousers are blue at the front and back, red at sides. the superman symbol on the chest protruding out, its red. no cape. it was on a stand we could walk around.

There were no photos allowed, but the lady (name Rosie, slightly bigger build, brown hair) said we could tell others at show, to build hype. They're showing random people the suit throughout today, tomorrow and Saturday, and sunday Tom Welling is flying in just to wear it when its unveilled at for Smallville presentation on sunday.

wanted to email you this right now, back to the show, but Any more questions reply back!

I just think this is neat.



Jason Quinones sent this to me. I find it terrifying. Also, he doesn't know it yet, but I'm gonna make him draw a mini Heroes Mxy one day.

LBFA used Supes in their strip again, so as is SIB tradition I plug away. It's a good one, too.

In other news Wednesday Comics IS AWESOME. I love the size, the smell of the newsprint, almost every story is good, the art in every single one is gorgeous, i love that it's an anthology, I love the quick week to week installments, I think the whole thing is awesome. I set up a subscription box for the first time in YEARS just so i don't miss any more.

I think the Superman story went terrible fast, but other than that think everything else writing wise is average to excellent, with nothing being outright bad. The Supergirl story is adorable.

I want this in a giant hardcover like yesterday. BUT! I also love getting just a bit of the story week to week. Yeah, you got me, DC. You got me good.
