Comics Shipping List for 5/4/11 -or- How I learned to stop worrying and love Superman

Soapbox time! This past week in Action Comics #900 (unfortunately currently sold-out nationwide; hopefully a second printing is in the wings) in one of the several stories we witnessed Superman *Spoilers* This, of course, threw Fox News into conniption fits. After reading a particularly insulting article on their website I felt compelled to address the subject. Action Comics #900 was, in my opinion, one of the best Superman books to come out in a very long time. Across the multiple stories in this issue (from the Reign of Doomsday & Black Ring tie-in stories to the controversial story in question) we see Superman doing what he does best: Super-Philosophy. For me, the most compelling aspect of Superman has never been his near-omnipotence or invincibility – its his unwavering fortitude of character. To that end this issue manages to hold delightfully true to the character of Superman and how I expect he would react in a real world situation given the history the character has lived. Further, we all too easily forget that at the time of his creation, Superman was absolutely a tool of the so-called ‘liberal elite’ – many of his first adventures were spent pushing Siegel & Shuster’s political agenda, especially when it came to defending Union Rights. I can honestly only think of a very small handful of other books which seem to hold as true to the spirit of Superman as this issue does. That said, clearly there are those who disagree with me. I’d love to hear what you guys think – come in and talk to me about it sometime.

All that tomfoolery aside, here’s the shipping list for the week:

ARCHIE ARCHIVES HC VOL 01 – Dark Horse Comics and Archie Comics Publications are thrilled to present Archie Archives! Seventy years ago, a small independent comics publisher in New York introduced a new kind of character to comics fans. He wasn’t a superhero or a warrior, neither a spaceman, nor a villain-he was Archie Andrews, the red headed teenaged “everyman” we all grew up with! Volume 1 of the Archie Archives series shines the spotlight on young Mr. Andrews’s earliest adventures on the streets of Riverdale, from the budding romances he shares with Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, to his anxious antics at Riverdale High and all the trouble he’s caused along the way! Collects all of the first appearances of Archie Andrews from Pep and Jackpot Comics, through Pep #31 and Jackpot #8.
