Star Trek

IDW has a new series based on the Original Series episodes using the new movie's cast! It's an interesting way to present the new voyages of the movie crew! Here are a couple of covers by Tim Bradstreet.

Aquaman, Superboy, Supergirl, and Super-Pets!

Aquaman using his telepathic powers! Art by Ivan Reis!

Superboy, Supergirl, and their pets, Krypto and Streaky, playing on an alien planet! Art by Keith Giffen!

All the Kryptonians in the above wallpaper had their own logos, so I used my meagre skills to create a logo for the Earth cat that got his powers from X-Kryptonite!

UGO Aquaman Interview!

UGO has a great interview with Geoff Johns and all he talks about is Aquaman! I especially liked this part:

Before he disappeared into the crowd of people at New York Comic Con, Johns briefly talked about scenes that we'll be seeing in upcoming issues, including a touching scene of Aquaman remembering his father on the ocean's shore. Aquaman's father was a lighthouse keeper, who fell in love with an Atlantean and Aquaman was the result of that forbidden relationship. Once separated, he on land, she in the sea, he promised to go to the same spot on the shore every day and wait for her. Aquaman recalls his father going to the beach every day to look for a "whale," he says, that just never comes. Touching stuff for a superhero everyone has slammed over the years.

I'm so glad Aquaman is finally getting his due! Reviews of the first issue have been largely favorable. In fact, I haven't read a bad review yet!

Krypto Confirmation

According to this panel at the NYCC Comic-Con, Krypto's fate has been sealed.

Harras then brought out the Superman family book editor Matt Idelson. Showing the cover for "Action Comics" #5 with art by Andy Kubert, the cover depicted Kal-El's rocket hurtling to Earth. Comic book artist Gene Ha also did part of the interior art for #3 and Idelson displayed those pages, saying that Ha is in charge of all the sequences on Krypton in the issue. "Not only is that your first look at Jor-El but Krypto, which looks very different then you're used to," said Idelson, bringing up an image of Jor-El and Krypto on the screen.

In pre-New 52 continuity, Krypto was Jor-El's (Superman's father) first test subject for his rocket design. The rocket was meant to bring Krypto back to Krypton, but it was knocked out of orbit and set on a trajectory toward Earth. The rocket arrived on Earth much later than Kal-El (Superman) did and so Kal was in his teens when he was reunited with his childhood pet. The image described in the report hasn't been leaked yet, but the current Action Comics gives us a clue:

a 10

To me, it looks like Krypto is a small moose-like creature with six legs and a central horn. He's definitely not an earth dog, that's for sure. I'll miss the pre-New 52 Krypto... I've always loved the idea of a super powered dog. And where would the Legion of Super-Pets be without Krypto?? Some cool stories featuring Krypto include Action Comics 591, DC Comics Presents 14 (with art by Dick Dillin!), and Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? Those stories and many more are waiting for me in the depths of my comic collection. Here's a couple of wallpapers featuring the old Krypto! Art by Carlos Pacheco!

NYCC Aqua-News!

According to this link from CBR,

Switching to "Aquaman," Johns brought series artists Ivan Reis and Joe Prado to show off pages from issue #5. "He's fighting in an airplane and he falls out…and when he looks up he's in the middle of a desert," said Johns as the audience gasped. John also said that issue #6 would be a Mera issue.

Well, that explains issue five's cover! And Mera spotlights are always welcome!

Justice Society, Aquaman

The Justice Society by Mike Nasser/Netzer!


And Aquaman by Ivan Reis! It seemed a shame not to feature the whole page, but I didn't like the idea of black bars on either side, so I tried something a little different... I've been sitting on this one for over a week because I wasn't sure if I liked it or not (if that makes any sense), but I've added it to my own personal wallpaper rotation, so I figure if it's good enough for me, it's good enough for everyone.
