Q: Santa's workshop is taken over by terrorists who are not what they seem. Which comics character fits the John McClane role? Remember: he’s an unlikely hero, so no obvious answers like Batman. — @charlotteofoz

A: Okay, look: I know that everyone is tired of the whole "Die Hard is the best Christmas movie" thing. I mean, I'm tired of it, and Matt D. Wilson and I once recorded a commentary track for that movie as the Christmas special for our podcast. But all that said, this question has too many interesting parts to not answer.

BestDCcovers2016featured

What may go down as one of the worst years in recent memory is slowly crawling to a close, and while we wish it good riddance and hope against hope that 2017 will be an improvement, there is some small solace in looking back over the year that's passed and figuring out what stuff from it was the best.

Great Caesar’s Ghost! The Endless Fun of Silver Age Superman Panels

silver supes

As the first and greatest superhero of them all, it only stands to reason that Superman would be leading the charge with some of the wildest and weirdest comics of the time. His amazing list of super-powers allowed him to have crazy adventures that many other characters couldn’t dream of having, but he also got strange new (but often very short-lived) powers to let the creators go even crazier with him.

All of which leads us to why you’re really here, to see this gallery of panels from Silver Age Superman comics presented completely without context. Some are weird, some are wacky, some are befuddling, but they’re all pretty fun, and the best part is this is just the teeniest, tiniest tip of the iceberg when it comes to Silver Age insanity. Just try to make sense out of them and enjoy!

Up, Up, And Away: Phil Jimenez’s ‘Superwoman’ #1 Shocks Fans With Controversial Ending

Superwoman

When DC Comics announced its slate of DC Rebirth titles, Superwoman was one of the books that really stood out as coming from left-field. For a time, we weren't sure who Superwoman would be, and when it was confirmed to be Lois Lane donning the costume, there were still more questions surrounding how she got her powers, and even which incarnation of Lois Lane it would be. (There have been two versions in the DC Universe since the reality-mashing events of Convergence.)

This week finally saw the release of Superwoman #1 by Phil Jimenez, Matt Santorelli and Jeromy Cox, which firmly establishes the new status quo for Lois Lane and Superwoman, while raising a lot more questions about the future of the comic and its lead than anyone was expecting. This article contains spoilers for the ending of Superwoman #1.
