For those of you who celebrate it – Merry Christmas!

Check out animator Michael Habjan’s latest “Superman vs. Hulk” fan-created video featuring a very Reeve-ish Superman. While I don’t particularly care for the endless punching and extreme violence, I do commend Michael for his great animation talent and ability to capture Christopher Reeve’s likeness and mannerisms.

Since this month is the 35th Anniversary of Superman-The Movie, I thought I’d post this wonderful photo of the Golden Gate Bridge by Darvin Atkeson.

We’re all familiar with Hoover Dam, thanks in large because of Jimmy Olsen’s rescue by Superman, but did you know about the Winged Figures of the Republic, created by Oskar J.W. Hansen for the Hoover Dam Memorial? Be sure to see them when you visit the dam. They are a must-see. Photo by Simon Murray.

SUPERMAN ICONS CHRISTOPHER REEVE AND GEORGE REEVES LIVES TOLD IN COMIC BOOK TRIBUTE

Bluewater Productions is releasing a new comic book biographies on two legendary men of steel, Christopher Reeve and George Reeves. Tribute: Christopher Reeve is released this week in conjunction with the release of the Man of Steel DVD.

Bluewater is working with the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation on this book. You can read more about the foundation in the book and a portions of the proceeds will also benefit the organization.

“Nothing is impossible.” Christopher Reeve.

What makes a man a true hero? Is it the role he plays or the life he leads? Explore the life of legendary actor and philanthropist Christopher Reeve in this tribute to the man behind Superman’s cape.

The 32-page comic book, written by Michael Frizell, illustrated by M. Anthony Gerardo. This book will feature two covers one by M. Anthony Gerardo and the other by famed artist Chris Mason.

“Working on a tribute comic about Mr. Reeve has been the realization of a childhood dream. When Superman: The Movie was released in 1978, Reeve embodied the character I dreamed about, and I wanted to believe a man could fly. While researching the book for Bluewater, I remember what compelled me to watch all of Reeve’s movies (my favorite, as you can tell in the comic, is Somewhere in Time. The movie features Reeve and Jane Seymour at the height of their prowess as performers, and it’s the only romantic movie I feel I can watch and not lose my ‘man card.’ It has time travel! Therefore, it garners geek cred in my book).”

“Reeve’s story is an inspiring one. As a university educator, I am particularly drawn to Mr. Reeve and the Reeve foundation because of the admirable work they do with people suffering from physical impairments. I am a former actor myself and I understand how difficult it is to embody a character. Now, imagine having the instrument you use to convey that character, your body, taken away from you. Reeve transcended his injury to give us, his viewing audience, fully realized characters. I can’t help but admire him.”

In January is releasing another comic book on the life of another hero, Tribute: George Reeves written and drawn by M. Anthony Gerardo . The book can be pre-ordered on iTunes and Comic Flea Market today.

He’s been gone for 55 years but for generation after generation he has thrilled & entertained us. He was the first actor to portray the man of steel in full color. And he is the granddaddy of all TV super heroes. But behind the scenes George Reeves lead a shocking (even by today’s standards) life. Witness a tribute comic like no other when Bluewater journeys from the heartlands- to the “city of tomorrow”, as everyday people review George’s career ,and his place within the history of American pop culture. Join us as we celebrate the man who personified America’s first and greatest superhero!

“I am from the generation that was lucky enough to first witness Christopher Reeve on the big screen in the winter of 1978. To say that movie and the character has had a life long impact on me is an understatement. And through the years I had always admired Christopher Reeve’s courage & how he truly was an inspiration. Prior to the 1978 movie, I had a 5-year head start with George Reeves as my first live version Superman. To this day I still consider him the granddaddy of all TV super heroes. He simply defined the golden age version of that character. To be able to work on these tributes was more than labor of love. It was a true honor to bring them to life in pages of a comic,” said artist/writer M. Anthony Gerardo.

The “Tribute” line of comic books tells the stories of the classic entertainers that have passed on,” says Bluewater publisher, Darren G. Davis “It is a way for us to honor these people who have made a difference in the world.

Previous subjects that have been featured in the “Tribute” line include Bruce Lee, Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Capra, Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe and James Dean.

Print copies of the book can be ordered at Comic Flea Market for US$3.99.

Digital copies will also be available for US$1.99. Download the comic to your e-reader from iTunes, Amazon, Nook, Kobo, ComiXology, Google Play, DriveThru Comics, Wowio, iVerse, and more.

Looks like Lana Lang (actress Diane Sherry) is having a blast being a cheerleader in Superman-The Movie! Photo from the CapedWonder Collection. Be sure to save the photo to your computer and then open it in your favorite viewer to enjoy the full size image.

I assembled two sets of B&W photos together to give you a clear view of Clark Kent’s room from Superman-The Movie since you can’t see much in the movie itself. Notice how much baseball memorabilia is in the room considering we do not see Clark play baseball in the movie. There is also what appears to be a track or cross country trophy on the shelf in the lower photo. Also notice his Smallville High backpack in the lower photo on the right side. B&W photos from the CapedWonder Collection. Be sure to save the photo to your computer and then open it in your favorite viewer to enjoy the full size image.


Additionally, the trophy below (which sold at Hake’s earlier this year) appears not in Clark’s room, but in the living room. See the screenshot of Ma Kent opening the shades. The trophy is on the table on the right side of the frame.

    It’s so nice to see a color photo of Superman at the cave entrance from Superman III. I always thought Christopher looked his best as Superman in Superman III. And the photo in the Fortress just speaks volumes of Superman and Lois’ complex relationship! Great updates! Thanks Jim!
