I distinctly remember sitting and attempting to copy the opening splash from the classic Superman Red/Superman Blue issue by Curt Swan. That was it. For better or for worse I was hooked.  

We showed you the cover yesterday, but we’ve got another enticing extra from the upcoming October Absolute collection of Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s epic ALL STAR SUPERMAN run. Namely, an engaging and essential from famed designer and author Chip Kidd. Click below for the full text.  

We interrupt your week-long Superman awesomeness for a few stunning pages from THE FLASH #3. I think you’ll forgive us, right?

  This month, writer Judd Winick and artist Pablo Raimondi joined forces to reveal the origins of the Red Hood in RED HOOD: THE LOST DAYS, a six-issue mini-series that spotlights an angry young man’s transformation into one of Batman’s deadliest foes.
