Jerry Ordway & Steve Rude’s ‘Adventures of Superman’ Is Like ‘A Lost Fleischer Cartoon’ [Interview]

The best Superman comic book currently published is about to get even better this coming Monday with the addition of Steve Rude, arguably one of today’s best living American comic book artists, and Jerry Ordway, one of the key Superman storytellers of the '80s and '90s, and a brilliant and influential artist in his own right. The pair have collaborated on a Superman story starring OMAC, a cult favorite creation of Rude’s own hero, Jack Kirby, for an Adventures of Superman digital short that they describe as " a lost Max Fleischer Superman cartoon."

ComicsAlliance spoke with Ordway and Rude to learn more about the 10-page adventure, their impressions of Superman in this day and age, the digital comics revolution, and how these accomplished but very distinctive creators worked together on the story.

How ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Succeeds Where ‘Man of Steel’ Failed

Admittedly, I never felt too outraged over the ending of last summer’s ‘Man of Steel.’ (Yes, there will be major spoilers ahead.) The complaints over Superman breaking the neck of his foe were certainly valid – therefore changing the very definition of the character – but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the film. That changed after seeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’

Frank Cho Revises ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ Scene To Make It Even More Anti-Superman

If you didn't know, artist Frank Cho hates Superman.

He went about proving it with a post to his blog this week in which he shared a commission for his pal who goes by the name Hawaiian Dave. It's a remix of the climactic two-page spread from Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns in which Batman and Superman have their big, final fight in Crime Alley. Cho has added in a bit of commentary, and it is anything but Superman-friendly. Check it out after the jump.

Awesome Alternate ‘Gravity’ Scene Makes The Movie Even More Super [Video]

 

I've seen a lot of movies with alternate endings over the years -- like the depressing original finish to Army of Darkness or that bonkers version of Die Hard With a Vengeance where John McClane spins an actual rocket launcher around on a table while riddling Jeremy Irons -- and to be honest, I usually don't think they add much to the film. They're an interesting look into an alternate universe, sure, but I almost always prefer the final product.

Today, however, I saw an alternate opening to last year's smash hit special effects blockbuster Gravity uploaded to YouTube by user Krishna Shenoi, and I have to admit that it changes the entire tone of the film to something I think I'd really like. Check below and see for yourself!

Superman Traverses Time and Space in ‘Strange Visitor’ Conclusion [Preview]

On sale this Sunday from DC Comics, Adventures of Superman #48 concludes the three-part "Strange Visitor" digital-first storyline. Written by Joe Keatinge, the story is one of the warmest and most mind-bendingly meta Superman tales released in recent memory, seeing the Last Son of Krypton in eras ranging from the earliest years of his creation to billions of years in the future as he -- to put it as simply as possible -- tries to rescue the occupants of a rocket ship marooned in a dimension more treacherous than any Superman's visited before, one that he will have to prepare his whole life to traverse.

Collaborating with artists including Ming Doyle, Brent Schoonover, Dave Williams, Tula Lotay and Jason Shawn Alexander, "Strange Visitor" is an ornate tribute to the Man of Steel on his 75th birthday, and one that's as dramatic as it is sentimental. Also Kamandi is in it.

Joe Keatinge On ‘Adventures Of Superman’: ‘When Am I Ever Going To Have This Chance Again?’ [Interview]

Over the past year, DC's digital Adventures of Superman anthology has played host to some of the most exciting creative teams working in comics today. With the current story, though, the scale of the whole project has gotten much bigger in both creative team and subject matter. Writer Joe Keatinge has been joined by an incredible roster of talent that includes Ming Doyle, Brent Schoonover, Dave Williams, Tula Lotay and Jason Shawn Alexander to chronicle a three-part epic that spans Superman's life from 1939 all the way to the end of time, and the end result is one of the best Superman stories I've read in a while.

To find out more behind how the project came to be and what he wanted to accomplish with it, I spoke to Keatinge and got his thoughts on the reason for multiple artists, the influence of Jack Kirby on the story, and how he compares and contrasts Superman and Dracula.

Superman Takes A GoPro For A Spin In Awesome Fan Film [Video]

As ubiquitous as hands-free GoPro cameras have become in action sports (I notice about a dozen atop helmets every time I go snowboarding) and parkour, there are scant few videos online showing the HD recorders at work in costumed crimefighting. Thanks to the team at Corridor Digital and their drone-flying friend Taylor Chien, Superman fans now have some insight into what it'd look like if The Man of Steel strapped one to his Kryptonian noggin' and flew around southern California Metropolis.
