I love doling out fruit baskets as much as anyone, but shipping them out to everyone in the nazzy and weller than uper @ModernAgeSupermanClub would cost a lot of Xeroxed Monopoly bread that I can’t spare right now.
Instead, Google “fruit baskets” and enjoy what comes up (Also: Read the Fruits Basket manga and watch the Fruit Baskets anime too, should time allow) while also checking out some of @Bar-El and I’s groovy reads in the OP above, which will hopefully make you say “Oh my Zod, those were good.”
I remembered it was coming out in early January, but didn’t realize it was out already (I miss that part of the Comixology app more than anything, the “This weeks new releases” section). Reading #1 today
I love General Zod, and have ever since I first saw him in Superman 2. I even made my own not too long ago, based off the Colin Salmon version from Krypton:
I know there are mixed feelings about it, but I loved For Tomorrow. I enjoy Azzarello’s writing, and the idea of reading his version of General Zod drawn by Jim Lee gave me the good chills. This scene in particular always stuck with me, about someone having the willpower not to blink their eyes, even as they dried away was chilling.
I was already a big Geoff Johns fan when this was announced, and knowing that the story would be a collaboration with Richard Donner, drawn by Adam Kubert was comic book heaven. General Zod in this story was cruel, merciless, and terrifying. Exactly how he should always be.
He reminded me of Damian, in a bad way lol like lil Damian in HQAS.
Ha! That’s a great comparison.
Should Lor appear on HQ, I hope they write him to be as much of a little brat as he has been in the comics.
I’m smiling as I imagine Harley putting her foot down with Lor and its TV grandeur that, right now, exists only in my mind, but will hopefully exist on-screen one day as well.
Zod pulled a Lord Ozai on him. I don’t think he’ll have as much character development as Zuko
Ozai…Zuko…oh criminy, I might have to turn my Anime Fan Card (held since 2000, I’m proud to say) in as those names sound so familiar, but I can’t place them ATM.
Naruto? Avatar: The Last Airbender?
I have not read any of the recommendations but I’m keeping this handy to check out more things when I can.
@Bar-El and I are honored that you’ll keep our handy-dandy reading recs handy and look forward to you chiming in on them when you’re able.
Whether its Superman/Batman or Superman/Wonder Woman (both ideally, should one’s reading palette be in the mood for multiple entrees), the selections are extra-fresh this month and a tasty mix of comic book badassery.
You’ll say “Tre bien!” and “Time for seconds!” before you know it, “I guar-an-tee!”
Whew, I can hang onto my Anime Fan Card for another day!
I haven’t seen much of ATLA, but I’ve seen more of it than I have Naruto, at least.
I haven’t delved into much Superman, most of my reading time appears to be in Gotham or Themyscira.
Themyscira and Gotham are fine places, no doubt. God knows I spend friggin’ oodles of time in each locale as I’m able.
However, Metropolis has a little bit something pecial that separates it from the pack and there’s always room for one more.
Pulls out a chair at the Superman Reading Table.
Check out how plush that sucker is…fine stitching on the sides, a uper-comfy, plush cushion and…other desirable things about chairs that are escaping my mind ATM because of how early it is and how late I’ve been up for work and moving.
However, that might change with the new recommendations.
Great, glad to hear it!
The world of Superman is as thrilling, exciting and wonderful as any other in the DC firmament (which owe their existence to Superman, but that’s another topic for another time), so “get your cape on and let’s take flight” into the new frontier that is Superman…your available time and levels of interest permitting, of course.
@Bar-El, we’ve got a new convert! Let’s order Party Pack 1978 (and 1992 on the side) to celebrate!
fine stitching on the sides, a uper-comfy, plush cushion
You can’t beat a good chair! Thanks for the party pack. 78 needs to be looked into at some point. Superman was my first superhero love. In fact Superman II was my first Superhero movie. Which is probably why I’m interested in Zod.
Welcome to the fan club (literally) @Chain_Twix if you like ATLA you will love Superman stories. Same heart, somewhat similar powers if you squint. No cabbages though, sorry.
Thank you for the welcome. I’m ok without cabbage. Any good Uncle Iroh substitutes?
Well…nobody is as into tea as Iroh, but Perry White is like a Toph infused Iroh lol If anything Superman himself usually has some Iroh energy. I think Iroh would rather live a life of peace, but if he has to kick some butt to get there he will, without hesitation. Sounds like Supes to me!
Like I said, I’m glad I was paid to screen it, because if I hadn’t been, I would have felt seriously ripped-off (and I’ve paid for my share of poopy movies, both pre and post-movie theater employ).
Not because of how bad of an adaptation it seemingly was, but because of what a crummy movie it was.
I mean, that…thing was directed by the same guy who did Unbreakable?
As Jerry Seinfeld said, “I don’t think so!”
I still vividly remember the trailer for TLA playing before the midnight showing of Iron Man 2 I attended and how a good chunk of the audience cheered loudly when Appa (Right? If not, its the thing that Aang rides.) swooped past the camera in the opening shots of the trailer.
I bet some of those cheers weren’t so loud after the movie came out.
