Basketful of Heads Hellblazer #1

BASKETFUL OF HEADS #1
Official Description: The rain lashes the grassy dunes of Brody Island, and seagulls scream above the bay. A slender figure in a raincoat carries a large wicker basket, which looks like it might be full of melons… covered by a bloodstained scrap of the American flag. This is the story of June Branch, a young woman trapped with four cunning criminals who have snatched her boyfriend for deranged reasons of their own. Now she must fight for her life with the help of an impossible 8th-century Viking axe that can pass through a man”s neck in a single swipe-and leave the severed head still conscious and capable of supernatural speech. Each disembodied head has a malevolent story of its own to tell, and it isn”t long before June finds herself in a desperate struggle to hack through their lies and manipulations… racing to save the man she loves before time runs out. Plus, in the premiere chapter of the backup story ”Sea Dogs,” which sails across all the Hill House Comics titles!
Writer: Joe Hill | Artist: Leomacs

THE SANDMAN UNIVERSE PRESENTS HELLBLAZER #1
Official Description: The second year of the Sandman Universe begins with the long-awaited arrival of one of DC’s most iconic characters…John Constantine, Hellblazer! He’s cheated death and damnation more times than he can count, but never like this. Long ago, in the crucible of a magical war waged across countless futures, Constantine was murdered by an all-powerful adversary: a twisted version of Timothy Hunter, bloated with evil. But over the past year strange forces have conspired to restart Tim Hunter’s tale, and somehow-amid sorcery, insanity and secret agendas-this older, wiser, wilier shade of Constantine has been dragged back with it. Unlike young Tim, John remembers every second of a life that went very, very wrong. Now he must ask himself why he, the last person in the world to deserve a second chance, has been given one. Is John Constantine here to put Tim Hunter on the right track and avert a terrible outcome? Or is it because he’s the only person in existence with the guts to do what REALLY must be done? After all, he’s a nasty piece of work, chief…ask anybody. This oversize one-shot sets the stage, and is the perfect jumping-on point, for a new era of Sandman Universe tales beginning in November…and is the official start of the strangest chapter yet in John Constantine’s long life!
Writer: Simon Spurrier | Artist: Marcio Takara

The Man of Steel 1The trunks are back and The Man of Steel relaunches with a new number 1 and a creative team in writer Brian Michael Bendis with art by Joe Prado and Ivan Reis. This is Bendis’ first big project with DC since signing an exclusive deal with the publisher, and what a perfect series to pair with the writer. I’m excited to see where he will take my favorite superhero.

This issue continues from Action Comics #1000, and expands on the story of Superman’s newest villain, Rogol Zaar. Was he responsible for the destruction of Krypton? Is he more powerful than the Man of Steel?

The official description for the first few issues of the new series:

The Man of Steel #1
A new era begins for Superman as a threat from his earliest origins reemerges to destroy the Last Son of Krypton. As Superman struggles to come to grips with what has happened to his wife and son, he must also face a new threat that’s determined to burn down Metropolis!

The Man of Steel #2
With an arsonist loose in Metropolis, Superman’s powers are almost useless in finding the culprit. And back at the Daily Planet, everyone wants to know what’s going on with Lois Lane. How can Clark hold on to the secret of what happened to Lois and Jon much longer?

The Man of Steel #3
The merciless killer and zealot calling himself Rogol Zaar has searched the cosmos for Superman—and when he reaches the Fortress of Solitude, his actions will cut Superman to the core.

Superman Man of Steel 2

I want a really good Superman movie. After Justice League, Warner Brothers and DC Comics have a uniquely clean slate to move forward, correct past wrongs, and really make a great sequel to Man of Steel. The main cast and world have been established. You don’t need to introduce things or retell the origin. Just make a really good damn movie. One thing that would help with that is to add some of Superman’s wonderful supporting characters from the comics and animated shows beyond the main players that have been established. Lois Lane, Perry White, Martha Kent, are all stables that you need, but there are so many more rich characters to add.

Lets look at a few of these characters and potential actors that could bring them to life.

Superman: Maggie Sawyer MariskaHargitay

Mariska Hargitay as Maggie Sawyer. Captain Maggie Sawyer, one of the toughest members of the Metropolis’ Special Crimes Unit. As Lieutenant Olivia Benson on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Hargitay already plays one of the toughest cops ever put on the screen, now picture her going against the Parasite instead of sex offenders and murderers. Hair color aside, she is also the spitting image of the character.

 

D.B. Woodside as John Henry Irons, aka Steel. Sure, Superman now has Batman, the Flash, Wonder Woman, and the Justice League as allies, but he needs to expand his family. Supergirl or Superboy are obvious choices, but my favorite member of Superman’s extended hero family is Steel. In Post-Crisis, he originally stepped up to fill in Superman’s shoes after his death and he could do the same here. Maybe while Superman was gone and then teaming with the league, John Henry Irons stepped up to protect the Suicide Slum in the Man of Steel’s absence as Steel. D.B. Woodside looks spot on as Irons. He is as big as him muscle wise and has the perfect presence and intelligence to pull off the engineer turned superhero.

 

Steve Austin as Bibbo Bibbowski. While speaking about Suicide Slum, how can I not mention (and cast) Bibbo. The big goofy guy who owns and tends bar at the Ace o’ Clubs, happens to be Superman’s biggest fan and could bring much (much!) needed comedic relief to Man of Steel 2. Steve Austin is tough as nails, like Bibbo, and brings a likability and charisma to the character that could be the perfect balance for someone who could too easily turn too cartoony and annoying.

 

Robert Patrick as Sam Lane. Lois’ father is a war hero and (depending on the version) a sometimes foe of Superman. He needs to be a military man through and through. He also needs to be believable as coming up against Superman, but not having the audience hate him as he is Lois’ father. Will he press on against Superman or flip and end up helping? Robert Patrick is a badass who can be the hero or the villain (changing in an instinct if needed). He is tough enough to look Superman in the eye and tell him to backdown.

 

John Shea as Frank Berkowitz. This is a smaller character that a lot of modern readers might not know. He was the Mayor of Metropolis introduced Post-Crisis in John Byrne’s “Man of Steel” mini-series. He stood up against Lex Luthor and in return was gunned down by a sniper hired by Luthor. John Shea, who portrayed Lex Luthor in Lois & Clack: The New Adventures of Superman, would be the perfect legacy actor to fill this role. There is something poetic with having a former Luthor be the Mayor who stands up to the new Luthor. He has the look and it would be sad to see him get killed. Bonus: They could use this as a potential cameo for Will Smith’s Deadshot as the sniper.

 

Adam Hicks as Jimmy Olsen. Jimmy is Superman’s best friend and one of the most important characters in his universe. It is also one of the hardest characters to cast. He needs to be young, but not too young, energetic but not annoying, and needs a full head of red hair. Before you comment, NO that photographer in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was not Jimmy Olsen. I don’t care what deleted scenes or extended versions say. Bring him in Man of Steel 2 as the spunky younger brother of Rebecca Buller’s Jenny Olsen. Have him become an intern at the Daily Planet with dreams of being a photographer. He gets a lucky break with a picture of Superman saving the day and the rest is history. I honestly don’t know Adam Hicks (I’ve never seen Freakish, Pair of Kings, or Zeke and Luther), but he is spot on the spitting image of Jimmy Olsen.

Who would you like to see in Man of Steel 2? Agree or disagree with my suggestions? Let me know in the comments! 


Only one more week until 2018! Lets take a look at some of the final issues of 2017. Who is ending the year with a bang (and the return of a classic character!)?
