Some written blog posts are on the way soon, for all 3 of you readers that are waiting. But in the meantime, I worked up some new wallpapers for my iPhone using an image of Superman originally painted by comic book icon Alex Ross.
One lock screen:
and the first of three home screens (more to come):
In case anyone is curious, we have original Superman, behind him we have the Player 2 version of him from the old school “bash n smash” arcade game, the white S belongs to a version based on the Justice Lords version from the Justice League animated series. Back row, we have Bizarro, and the outfit Superman wore when he came back from the dead.
After reading all that, I realize how geeked up it all sounds. Wow.
Are you super fucking excited by the title of this post? Are you giddy at the thought of seeing this story done right in a feature length format? Well simmer down. It’s not a full length adaptation. What it IS, though, is a short film by Max Landis (son of film luminary John Landis) presenting an educational and…unorthodox retelling of the comic book story that shook the comic book industry, and the world, two decades ago. Watch for Elijah Wood and Simon Pegg to appear, and a surprise cameo in the final moments.
