I hate some of these, but others I can still get behind. It’s nice seen these still around the interbutts.

Man of Tomorrow, Pencil, ink and digital colors.
I want to believe that the superman that was created as a sort of inspiration to the world, the character that became an icon representing good in all it’s forms- loving and accepting of humanity with all it’s flaws and shortcomings- will come back to us someday.

This Week’s Purchases at the Comics Shop. Because of some strange mistake at the shop months ago, my issue of Ultimate Spider-Man #1 never came in, so I had recieved #2 and #3, but couldn’t read them until i got my hands on #1. Finally the shop delivered and I gots mine! Other than Fear Itself#7 being just generally mediocre, I can safely say that every single other purchase was great. 
Top Picks:
Superman: Secret identity #1: This reprint of a 2004 book by Kurt Busiek and Stuart Immonen is just, ugh. wow. I can’t even. This is the type of thing that should have been more abundant in the DCnU reboot. Original stories, original takes on classic concepts, plus mystery, conspiracies, and fantastic art. I’ll gladly pay the eight bucks for the other 3 reprints, thank you.
Avengers #18: I wasn’t expecting this to be in my top picks, but I didn’t have as much fun with any other book as I did with this one. Brian Bendis gets a lot of flack for his writing, but i don’t think anyone can argue that its his dialogue that makes his character-work ten times more believable than in any other book I follow. They talk as we would. Bendis has specialized in these little moments where they’re vulnerable just talking; about life, about love, about money problems, and yet still hinting at the plot. Of course, my opinion might be skewed by the fact that Daniel Acuña Is absolutely killing it in the art department. I loved those New Avengers Issues he did a couple years back, I’ve always loved his cover work, and I’ll be damned if I don’t love his work on this issue.

Police in Granite City, Illinois, have arrested a man suspected of stealing thousands of dollars worth of Superman memorabilia from a mentally disabled collector in St. Louis. Better still, they were able to recover the collection and return it to the owner, a very grateful Mike Meyer…

The theft quickly drew worldwide attention, with fellow fans from as far away as Australia and the United Kingdom rallying to replace Meyer’s collection. According to the Post-Dispatch, officials in Cleveland offered to pay for Meyer to tour the house where a young Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created the Man of Steel, while the Metropolis, Illinois, Chamber of Commerce has its own plan in the works.

Meyer, who now has close to double what had been stolen — with more promised or already en route — plans to give those donations to charity, likely a children’s hospital.

“People were generous to me,” Meyer, who lives with his dogs Krypto and Dyno, told the newspaper. “This is how I can be generous in return.”

This was done as a special edition of The Line: It Is Drawn. It was decided that instead of doing the usual requests, we’d all work on a Superman themed drawing for one Mike Meyer. 
If you’re not aware of the events, Mike is a mentally handicapped person who was taken advantage of and robbed of his most prized possessions. A life-long collection of superman comics and memorabilia.
This was our sort of gift, in an attempt to make up for how he was wronged.
