Tuesday Runaround – The Origin Of Superman

OriginWatch: Mike Meyer, the disabled gentleman who had his Superman comics conned out of him, before the thief was caught, has visited Jerry Siegel’s home where Superman was first conceived.

“I feel like I’m connected with Siegel and Shuster, a piece of history was created here,” Meyer said, looking around the living room of 10622 Kimberley Ave. He walked to an old desk in Jerry Siegel’s bedroom on the second floor and timidly asked, “Can I sit here?”

RightWatch: Big Hollywood weighs un on Frank Miller

“The comic industry can lay claim to being part of the left-leaning mainstream media.

“Once a bastion of patriotism, personified by Marvel’s Captain America, comics now reveal a leftist agenda by having the Tea Party as villains worthy of Captain America’s hurled shield. So it is refreshing when one of their own breaks ranks.”

HuffWatch: When is a graphic novel not a graphic novel? When it’s a comic.

“The opening credits of The Walking Dead on AMC read, “Based upon the graphic novel series by…” The Walking Dead comes out as a monthly comic book series. As in single issue. It’s a comic book, sure it’s an long ongoing story, but they aren’t graphic novels.”

VoteWatch: Idolized from Aspen continues their voting on costume and character designs… here’s the next two for you to vote on…

And here is how the successful team is looking so far.

DeviceWatch: Kindle Or Nook?

“Both tablets are a great size / weight for reading, and while their built-in readers aren’t quite perfect yet, the hardware and price points coupled with Comixology’s sequential art-tailored app and stocked market will make both of these killer devices for comics fans looking to ditch the single issues. As far as deciding between the two readers, that will likely come down to price (the Nook Tablet is $50 more), hardware (the Nook is a bit more souped up in a number of respects) and, most importantly, where you stand on the Marvel (Nook) / DC (Kindle) divide.”

This is Computo the Comic Link Conqueror speaking. I come for your women. But for now I merely collate comic-related bits and pieces online. One day I will rule. Until that day, read on.

They say I am a work in progress. The fools.
