Bizarro Back Issues: Superman Plays Superman In A Movie About Superman (1967)

steel01

You may not have heard about it since Warner Bros. is keeping it pretty quiet, but there's a new movie about Superman coming out this week. That means that it's once again time for a new group of people to try their hand at bringing Superman to the big screen, and if there's one thing we've learned from past movies, it's that this is a darn near impossible task. Even in the best of circumstances, even if Clark Kent himself steps up to play the lead role, they're always going to get something wrong.

Bizarro Back Issues: ‘The Return Of Planet Krypton!’ (1953)

return01

It probably goes without saying that here at ComicsAlliance, we've been thinking a lot about shocking returns this week, and not just because they'e a pretty well-worn plot device. We've had some first-hand experience with it over the past few days, and I'm not gonna lie: They can be pretty surreal. Of course, we only have the return of a website to talk about, so I can't even imagine how strange it would be if, say, an entire planet came back from the dead one day.

Bizarro Back Issues: ‘The Robot War Of Smallville’ (1957)

robotwar01

In a lot of ways, Superboy is one of DC's best stabs at capturing the kind of wish fulfillment character that Captain Marvel perfected. It's one of the simplest ideas in comics, taking all the powers of Superman and compressing them down into a pint-sized package that also went to school and was secretly way cooler and smarter than any of his classmates who probably didn't even know about the Bottle City of Kandor. You

Bizarro Back Issues: ‘Dastardly Events Aboard The Hellship!’ (1978)

Bob Haney and Jim Aparo were the single greatest creative team that has ever worked on Batman, and if anyone says differently, they are wrong and dumb and I hate them forever.

That might be a bit of an extreme rea

Bizarro Back Issues: Kamen Rider Takes On Bat Man (Not That One) (1971)

kamen01

One of the best things to happen in comics in 2012 was the digital release of a bunch of titles by Shotaro Ishinomori, the creator of Kikaider, that Legend of Zelda comic that ran in Nintendo Power, and a bunch of other comics about monsters getting kicked right in the face. The one that drew my attention the most was the classic Kamen Rider, and while our own Dylan Todd wrote about how great these comics are, I tho

If you're keeping up with current issues of Batman, then you already know that the "Death of the Family" event is based around the Joker getting the idea that Batman's "family" of sidekicks and assorted hangers-on is making him weak. As a re

Bizarro Back Issues: Reltih, The Reverse Hitler (1944)

reltih01

A few weeks ago, I asked my pal Andrew Weiss if he knew of any Captain Marvel stories that involved boxing that I could use for my annual pugilism-themed December 26th post, and he pointed me to Captain Marvel Adventures #35 and the story of Radar, the International Policeman. Under ordinary circumstances, the story of Billy Batson's alter-ego get

Bizarro Back Issues: Batman’s Deadly New Year! (1972)

newyear01

Last week, one of the questions that came in for my Ask Chris column came from someone who was curious about how Batman celebrated New Year's Eve, and really, that's a pretty interesting question. I mean, we have plenty of comics, cartoons and even one goofy-ass movie about ho

Bizarro Back Issues: Christmas With The Punisher Is Not Exactly Jolly (1995)

punisher01

When it comes to Christmas comics, you can't really get around the fact that some characters lend themselves to holiday stories a little easier than others. Superman is essentially built around peace on Earth and goodwill to men anyway, Batman's themes of family and sacrifice are perfectly suited for a bittersweet Christmas tale, and Spider-Man shopping for presents is almost always a good recipe for seasonal comedy.

If you're a regular ComicsAlliance reader, then you already know that I'm pretty fascinated by the weirder comics of the past, but at Christmastime, my thoughts turn to more heartwarming tales. As s
