Happy Birthday Superman! Love the Steve Rude version, something about his painting style is just great


Well, no surprise, Steve Rude rules supreme, but there are some quite classic iconic ones as well.

Those ACTION #1000 variants, as well as SUPERMAN #45, are TOO COOL. I may have to visit Dragon’s Lair or Bazinga! Comics this week.



Is it time for Akemi’s birthday? What did she get? What did you do? Will you be celebrating all week long? Happy birthday Akemi!


Wow, that’s a lot of Superman!


Prison Ship. I guess Hyperion-8 was taken. LOL


Happy Birthday, Akemi! Was going to post a neat chocolate-making video for the occasion. Now if I can figure out where I saved it… smile Hope you and Joe and Suji & Lulu have had a great day!


I never knew there were so many variations on Super Man! Who says comic book illustration isn’t Art? I think comics and grade-level books are where kids actually learn to appreciate art. It’s more accessible to them. smile


If it really is your birthday, lovely Akemi, have a great one!! Miss you all.

Red Dog is intriguing. I love all the Superman variants! Excellent! As for Prison Ship, seriously, that female hero twisted torso pose emphasizing the butt and boobs (boobs) has got to go.

Craziness! I wonder what our other comics shop in town will do about the Legends cover variant. Will they acknowledge it/sell it? Both shops are amazing and have great customer service and great selections, I just don’t know how well they get along. I’ll have to stop by Heroes and do some “asking”. wink

While it’s obvious most of these covers represent some part of Supes’ history over the last 80 years, with the covers that reflect a more modern take, I’m surprised to see so many of them with the red undies. Some random new stuff I’ve seen, including some of the animated movies, have them gone.

Will the real Clark Kent please step forward… WOW! I didn’t know The “S” man had so many clones.
