Just a little playground to spawn creativity and mix it up with my friends.

Come on, DC.  It’s like you’re not even trying.
DC has always struggled with the plot twist over action over plot over character issue, going all the way back to Crisis on Infinite Earths, a series that, for all the ballyhoo, is as much fun to read as a textbook.  Somehow, with COIE, DC decided the formula for multi-part stories was to throw together as many characters as possible, have them shouting at each other around the globe, and to tell more than show anything actually happening.  
The greatest sin of the New-52 has been the refusal to world build, instead relying on prior continuity and the New-52 twist and hoping it all sticks together as, we like to say, a lot of things happen but not much occurs.
The “Superdoom” storyline relies on memories of pre-New-52 franchise players like Superman, Doomsday, Brainiac, Luthor and Lois Lane (as well as Batman), but has the feel of the Axe Cop guys given espresso and refrigerator magnet poetry trying to hold together a coherent story.
I only read comics sporadically these days, and so when I sit down with a quick run of something like "Action Comics", I sort of expect it to hold together.  But I’d be wrong.  I have read every issue of the New 52 Action Comics, but I have no clue what is going on in this “Superdoom” storyline.  I don’t know who these characters are (Harrow?  Shay?), I don’t know what happened to Smallville or Lois or when.  
What doesn’t help are the bad lessons learned that make nearly every DC cross-over feel like a bullet list more than a story.  And certainly, reading Action Comics #33, Action Comics Annual #3 and Action Comics #34 back-to-back feel like, yes, I’ve just been given a checklist of shit happening rather than a story.  
I won’t even get into how awful the “Superdoom” design is, but, yeah, it’s @#$%ing dumb.

Hi there! I love this blog, thank you for putting so many lovely Lois and Clark posts on my dash! I'm newly into comics, and for all that I've come to love L&C from TV and movie media, I've barely read any Superman comics. I'd like to, but there's obviously a lot of content! As a trusted L&C source, could you please recommend some of your favorite favorite runs/arcs/issues/etc. to a fellow shipper or point me toward any already-compiled such list? Thanks so much, keep up the awesome blogging! :)

fyeahsupermanandloislane:

Thanks for the kind words and, as someone who also came to Superman and Lois from live action, I hope you’ll be like me and find that reading their comic book incarnations adds to your love and enjoyment of this amazing couple. I’ll try my best to come up with a list. If it’s missing anything, or if other Clark/Lois fans have their own personal favorites to recommend (here are two good places to start: 1, 2), hopefully they’ll show up in any responses this post may get. My recommendations include those in the links above and the following:

GOLDEN AGE | SILVER AGE | BRONZE AGE

  • Browse my edits/scans/reblogs in my tags for Golden Age, Silver Age, and Bronze Age and you’ll probably find some good ones. Superman Takes a Wife and Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? are pretty neat and important.

POST-CRISIS

  • The Wedding Album
  • Up, Up, and Away
  • Camelot Falls
  • For Tomorrow
  • Last Son of Krypton

NEW 52

  • Superman Unchained
  • Earth 2 (20-26)
  • Batman/Superman (1-4, 12-13)
  • Action Comics (0, 1-2, 4, 9-12, 19, 21, 34, Annual #3)
  • Superman (24)

ORIGIN STORIES

  • Superman: Birthright
  • Superman: Secret Origin

OTHER

  • All-Star Superman
  • Final Crisis (2, 3, 7)
  • Superman: Secret Identity
  • Superman Confidential
  • JLA: Classified (10-11)

DIGITAL

  • Smallville: Season 11 - All of it is good, but the best arcs or “episodes” that include lots of Lois/Clark or are relevant to them are Guardian, Detective, Haunted, Valkyrie, Olympus, Lantern, and Chaos.
  • Adventures of Superman - The whole series of digital “chapters” (with arcs collected as individual issues) is excellent. These are the chapters that are best for Clark/Lois: 5, 7-9, 12, 18, 29, 34, 37, 43-45, 47, 48, 50.

Gosh, I’m probably forgetting some important ones. There’s lots to check out, though, and I hope you’re able to find them and enjoy them. Happy reading!

Man of Steel

battyponymonfan:

Can we talk about this movie for a sec? Can we talk about how Clark w as first getting his powers at school and had an axiety attack and just ran out of the room for the janitor closet? Does anyone remember what an amazing thing his mom did for him, to help him calm down?

"The world is too big"
“Then make it small. Focus on my voice. Pretend its an island. Can you see it?”
“Uh huh”
“Swim toward it.”

He sits a little longer and he finally comes out to her. Thats something really big. It shows even a super hero started with anxiety and needed a hand.

TRUTH, JUSTICE AND THE CANADIAN WAY: ROYAL CANADIAN MINT ISSUES FOUR NEW SUPERMAN COINS
By Matt D. Wilson
Last year, the Royal Canadian Mint issued seven collector’s coins to celebrate Superman‘s 75th anniversary. Looks like it’s a hard habit to break, because at this year’s Fan Expo in Toronto, the mint announced it was issuing four more coins with images from covers dating back to Superman’s debut in 1938.

Though he’s widely considered a U.S. hero, Superman has Canadian roots. Joe Shuster, who co-created Superman with Jerry Siegel, was born in Toronto.

90’s Catwoman, again let me say the only time Batman does something stupid on purpose is when he turns her away when she reaches out to him.

This is the best.
