I Am Superman

Newsarama talks to Grant Morrison about his upcoming All-Star Superman with Frank Quitely, which will feature the big blue banana in stories outside the continuity of his regular title. The All-Star imprint is DC’s response to Marvel’s wildly successful “Ultimate” universe (which, in brief, was a ground-zero reboot of their classic characters, sans the decades of continuity baggage that hangs around the necks of the regular titles like so much albatrosses). Other titles in the line will include All-Star Batman & Robin by Jim Lee and a writer TBA (Frank Miller is probably too much to hope for) and there are rumours of Adam Hughes turning his pencils to All-Star Wonder Woman.

The Incredible Hulk makes some new year’s resolutions.

Some good mojo from Neil Gaiman for the coming year:

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t to forget make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”

Dead Meadow are in town March 30 at a venue to be determined in support of their new album Feathers, out February 22 on Matador. Italy’s Jennifer Gentle support.

If I hadn’t declared a moratorium on 2004 year-in-reviews, I would direct you to Zoilus’ piece from this weekend’s Globe & Mail. But I did, so I won’t. Sorry Carl.

    You should post your superhero, Frank. What would be your theme song?

    Sigh, question: What is everyone’s major hard on for Modest Mouse? The 2004 album isn’t horrid, but it’s no more exciting than Franz Ferdinand or any other indie rockish band that came out last year. I’ve been cruising a few year-end lists, and it’s been on waaay too many of them. Help. Please advise.

    FRANK MILLER *IS* the writer of "All-Star Batman & Robin" hooray!
