BATMAN BY JOSEPH HAEMMERLE

Image
Joseph Haemmerle is the artist for The Champion City Fire and he also provided artwork for The Red Devil. He has submitted for our faithful followers a drawing of Batman from The New 52. I like this drawing of The Dark Knight because it appears that he has just landed somewhere and he's about to do battle with some bad guys in Gotham. Fantastic.



YOU DON'T TUG ON SUPERMAN'S CAPE

Image
These are the many costumes of Superman. Let's take a look at the boy in blue during good times and bad.

I have been a Superman fan for as long as I can remember, and if there’s one thing I know in the comic world, it’s Superman. Through the years people have tried to change Superman's appearance. There’s the first incarnation of Superman, shown holding a car in the incredibly valued, (This comic sold for 2.16 Million) Issue #1 of Action Comics.



 The costumes have ranged from the red and blue electrical version, to the black and silver version, to the Multiverse version, etc. Slight tweaks have happened here and there, but the most notable was the shift from the shield design to the new diamond design. Also, the location of the cape has changed as it has gone from the neck, to the shoulders and dipping down his back. Superman has had multiple variations of colors and designs from a multitude of amazing artists, and multiple interpretations in an attempt to remake a simpl…

KAV'S RULES FOR MOVIES

Image
A. 'Kav' Kaviraj is our local artist, comic book guru, and movie script expert. If you have plans to write a movie script, then follow Kav's rules for movies below!

1. It's easy to start a car by just pulling apart some wires with your bare hands and rubbing them together.



2. In a shoot out in a hotel or neighborhood, no one ever calls the cops. These things can go on for like 10 minutes without any police response.

3. A grenade will only kill someone when the plot requires it-otherwise it just knocks them back.

4. Whenever someone is stalked by killers and comes home to see the door jimmied open, they will enter and shout 'Is anybody there?'

5. Whenever a cop finds a suspect, instead of walking up to him and sticking a gun in his ribs, he will stand 30 feet away and shout 'Halt! Police!' giving the guy the ability to simply run away.

6. A bad guy in a hotel room will always be with a hooker.

7. Vegas is still controlled by the mob in movies - in real…

COVERS PROJECT: SUPERMAN'S PAL JIMMY OLSEN #88

Image
A. 'Kav' Kaviraj likes to send me silly or cool comic book covers for me to post at Champion City Comics. Kav emailed me the cover of Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #88 where we see Jimmy playing an oddly shaped guitar or bass while Superman dances like a twit. What's up with the guy on drums? Is that a drum set? Where did he get such a god awful percussion set? I have too many questions with this cover, but I am slightly interested to read this issue to see the infamous Krypton Crawl.

A KAV CRIME NOIR SNEAK PEAK

Image
Resident artist and comic book guru, A. 'Kav' Kaviraj recently sent me an image from an upcoming collaboration with writer Darrin O'Toole. Remember, it was Kaviraj and O'Toole that were awarded the runner-up prize at the Dundee College sequential art contest. Judging from this image, it appears we can expect a really cool noir project from these two.
