‘Man Of Steel’s Faora Is Basically Vegeta And That’s A-OK! [Art]

faoravsvegetacomicsalliancemain

Like a lot of longtime Superman fans, I found myself experiencing my share of cognitive and emotional dissonance watching the new Man of Steel movie. One thing was clear, however: Faora was totally dope! The Kryptonian killing machine has her own unique history in DC Comics lore, but the movie version especially resonated with me because she's essentially the closest thing Dragon Ball Z fans may ever see to a live action Vegeta (the less we all entertain the idea of a sequel to Dragonball: Evolution, the better). Indulge in a comparison chart detailing some key similarities and differences between the two proud/psychotic alien warriors with us after the cut, but beware of mild spoilers if you haven't seen MoS just yet.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – Superman 75th Anniversary Edition

untitled-1-1371231931

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we've created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it's new, some of it's old, some of it's created by working professionals, some of it's created by future stars, some of it's created by talented fans, and some of it's endearingly silly. All of it's awesome. In honor of this year's 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Superman and this weekend's release of Man of Steel, we present for the second time a compilation of some of the coolest portraits of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's brilliant creation that we've highlighted in this feature over the last few years. We know it's cheating but we didn't count on going away for a month and then coming back in the middle of a big media event. All-new next week evermore.

Bizarro Back Issues: The Strange Amnesia Of President Superman! (1969)

pres01

One of those old saws that always gets tossed around every election year is that nobody who actually wants to be President should ever be given the job. If that's true, then I think we can all agree that it would be better if someone just woke up one morning and found out he was in charge of the country. And also -- a

I've never really been much of a sports fan, mostly because my enjoyment of a sport is based entirely on how often a steel folding chair is used as a weapon, and for some reason that never really happens in basketball. That

Bizarro Back Issues: Superboy Becomes a Super-Man (With Sex) (1977)

superboy01

As much as I tend to enjoy Superboy stories for their sheer kookiness, I've never really been a big fan of the concept. For the most part, they tend to just be standard Superman stories with Metropolis swapped out for Smallville and a slightly different girl with an alliterative name giving him a headache. Occasio
