11 Of The Best Stories From DC Digital’s ‘Adventures of Superman’ Anthology

Untitled-2

With the wrap-up of writer Joe Keatinge's multi-artist "Strange Visitor" epic in Adventures of Superman last week, the series is nearing a full year of weekly, digital Superman stories. It's easily been the best, most daring Superman title DC Comics has been publishing in 2013 and 2014 (and not just because Superman gets to wear his real costume in it). Edited by Alex Antone,  Adventures of Superman invites creators from all strata of comics to put their own stamps on Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's original American superhero, free from the aesthetic constraints of the publisher's main line of New 52 comics and continuity. We like it so much, Adventures of Superman ended up on our list of the best comic books published in 2013.

We thought it would be a good idea to look back at the series so far, so I've compiled the following list of stories that readers unfamiliar with the series should go back and catch up with if they want the high points of the past year. At a dollar a pop, they're all well worth it.

‘Stray Bullets’: Number One With A Lead Projectile [Opinion]

Stray Bullets #10 pg00

Google “Best Crime Comics of All Time” and you’ll find a lot of lists, including a couple from ComicsAlliance, filled with many of the usual suspects: Criminal, Sin City, Torso, Scalped, and Darwyn Cooke’s Parker adaptations appear several times, alongside the archetypal series that defined the genre like Crime Does Not Pay, Dick Tracy (before Chester Gould started sending Tracy off to adventures on the Moon), and Crime SuspenStories. These are all undisputed classics in the genre that should be read by everyone, but notably, criminally absent (sorry, couldn’t help it) from every one of the lists that I came across was David Lapham’s Stray Bullets.

Every. Single. One.

Now that the title is returning, with new stories from Image Comics after nearly a decade-long absence, we may be able to rectify these egregious errors. Stray Bullets is the best crime comic of all time. And I will injury-to-the-eye-motif anybody who says different.

David Lapham Talks Bringing His Creator Owned ‘Stray Bullets’ To Image Comics

Stray Bullets Killers #1

Cited by many readers and comic professionals alike as an under appreciated classic, David Lapham's work on his creator owned crime series Stray Bullets has always received high praise. As such, it came as a bit of a blow to the series' followers, and Lapham himself, when he revealed six years ago that the book was going on an indefinite hiatus. Lapham, who first launched the title in 1995 and published it himself, along with Maria Lapham, under his El Capitan label, announced at the time that he'd be focusing mostly on work for hire projects for the foreseeable future.

But, following the release of a teaser from Image Comics yesterday, it has now been revealed that Stray Bullets will continue with new content beginning in March, with Lapham taking the title over to the publisher. On March 12, Image will simultaneously release Stray Bullets #41, Stray Bullets: The Über Alles Edition -- which will collect issues 1-41 -- and Stray Bullets: Killers #1, the first issue of a new story arc. Further, digital versions of every previous issue of the series are available now via Image Comics' website and Comixology, with the first four issues being free.

Lapham joined a conference call with members of the press to discuss the announcement, in which he stated that ever since Stray Bullets stopped, he's "been trying to figure out a way to do it again."

Dark Horse Announces David Lapham ‘Kid McAllister’ #1 And ‘Juice Squeezers’ #1 [NYCC 2013]

Dark Horse Comics

 

David Lapham's got a lot going on at Dark Horse Comics. In fact, he may just be writing and drawing a full DH release every month in 2014 and beyond. The Stray Bullets and Young Liars creator's newest series, Kid McAllister, is set to debut with a 22-page #1 issue in May, while DHP alum Juice Squeezers graduates to a full series with a digital issue collecting its DHP stories on Dark Horse Digital in December and its own brand-new #1 in stores in January. Both series fit in with Lapham's body of work by blending offbeat concepts into character-driven narratives, but while Juice Squeezers follows seemingly normal small town kids in an underground battle against giant bugs, Kid McAllister will see a not-so-normal preteen cowboy doing his best to deal with what could be a secret alien invasion. Just in time for New York Comic Con 2013, CA got in touch with Lapham for the scoop on his big year of Dark Horse launches. You can read our full interview after the cut.
