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.

Marvel To Relaunch The Ultimate Universe With Three New Series From Bendis, Marquez, Fialkov, Fiffe And More

Ultimate Marvel Now

It's been fourteen years since Marvel launched its Ultimate line of comics, with the goal of establishing a universe in which its characters were younger and modern, and where many of the continuity restrictions of the established Marvel line didn't apply. Over that time, many changes have been made and several significant characters have died -- most notably Peter Parker, who was replaced in the role of Spider-Man by young hero Miles Morales.

Now, the Ultimate line will once again embrace change. Following the conclusion of the current line-wide Cataclysm event -- featuring the heroes of that universe facing off against Galactus -- Marvel has announced Ultimate Marvel NOW, an initiative that will see a new direction and new titles from creators Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez, Joshua Hale Fialkov, Michel Fiffe and more.

Ultimate Ultimate? Editor Mark Paniccia on ‘Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand’ [SDCC 2013]

Untitled-1

The big announcement at Friday's Ultimate Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con was a new series by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley with the modest title, Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand.

The arrival of Galactus in the Ultimate Universe will initially be explored in Hunger, by Joshua Hale Fialkov and Leonard Kirk, but what Galactus's arrival means for the Ultimate version of Earth will play out in Cataclysm -- and with a name like that, it doesn't sound promising. Comics Alliance spoke to series editor Mark Paniccia to get more background on the series.

Ultimate Marvel Panel: Is This The End? [SDCC 2013]

ultimatepanelmain

A big shadow hung over this year's Ultimate Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The final issue of Age of Ultron revealed that Galactus had slipped through from the Marvel Universe to the Ultimate Universe, but that's not the shadow I'm referring to. Fans have been speculating for the past few weeks that the Galactus story is a way to bring the Ultimate Universe to a dramatic close. The spectre of cancellation hangs over the low-selling line.

The SDCC panel didn't exactly assuage that fear, but nor did Marvel confirm that this was the last -- nay, ultimate -- Ultimate panel. All the talk was about the big man coming to dinner - and about the future of Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales.

DC’s New ‘He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe’ Comics Are Secretly Awesome

hemmu314

When the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series found its way to Netflix Instant not too long ago, I thought it would make perfect background noise for my work day; some nostalgic entertainment to help pass the time while working on the site. But as an adult, what I discovered in that early 1980s cartoon based on an action figure line was far more distracting and indeed more sophisticated than I ever realized as a little boy. While the animation itself is crude (and famously recyclable), the show expresses a palpable sense of otherworldly adventure and intrigue through its writing but even more so through it's surprisingly awesome art direction. I thought, this medieval-techno world of Eternia and its heroes, villains, magics and prophecies could really be great if someone wanted to really dig into it.

Never Mind, DC Comics Not Planning to Kill Green Lantern John Stewart

untitled-1-1363993137

It was reported last week that Joshua Hale Fialkov walked away from his new gig as writer of Green Lantern Corps and Red Lanterns because of disagreements over an editorial mandate to kill off John Stewart, a popular Green Lantern character and one of DC Comics' most prominent African-American superheroes. It would appear that those plans have changed, as Fialkov's GLC replacement Robert Venditti tweeted on Friday that he and co-writer Van Jensen "have never even contemplated killing John Stewart." The stateme

Though writer Joshua Hale Fialkov's blog post announcing he'd no longer be writing DC Comics' Green Lantern Corps and Red Lanterns simply pointed to "editorial decisions about the direction of the book that conflicted with the story I was hired to tell" as the reason for his departure, Bleeding Cool and Comic Book Resources reported today that the specific editorial direction
