Great find!

Oh my god.  They said that this assassination went all the way to the top, but nobody knew that it’d go to the stratosphere.

Superman. You son of a bitch. It was you all along. He said he’d keep your secret, what the fuck is wrong with you?

I will continue to consider DC’s “New 52” a failure until it includes stories like this.

I didn’t take this picture but it is important that you understand that I admire this person more than anyone else who has ever lived. (Taken with instagram)

I imagine the expectations for a person named after the World’s Finest would be too much to handle.

Superman is Don Draper

The 60’s were a weird time for everybody.

What Type of Vigilante is the Times?

Batman

Pro: Incredibly wealthy child of privilege who lives and works in Gotham. 

Con: Lets people die

Dr. Fate

Pro: Mostly invulnerable, attempts to use it’s power to fight chaos and preserve a status quo

Con: People actually read the New York Times

Superman: 

Pro: Both work in a struggling industry. Both have been around so long that nobody remembers just what it was that made it special. 

Con: Superman fights against big business and special interests to champion the little guy.

Black Canary

Pro: Uses shrill, piercing voice to destroy anyone in path.

Con: Black Canary’s reluctant to use powers. New York Times uses it twice a week despite protests.

Dr. Manhattan

Pro: Cold, impersonal, tool of the U.S. Government used for war. Over time, sheer enormity of infinite power has made it unable to empathize with human beings. Also, easily tricked. Complicit in mass genocide.

Con:  Not quite sure, but I always felt the Times was more of an Ozymandias.

What do you think?

Le Dunk De La Mort
You all remember this transcendent sports moment from the 2000 Olympics right? When Vince Carter - literally, figuratively, anything else - was at the height of his rise, threw down a dunk over Frederic Weis that was so memorable, it was called “La Dunk De La Mort” by the French media. Translated to English, it means the dunk of death.
While we’re all familiar with what happened to Carter after, he of the underachieving career and a tumultuous end in Toronto, whatever happened to the man on the other side of this poster?
Weis was drafted 15th overall by the New York Knicks in 1999, but suffered a serious back injury that prevented him from signing with the team. When he recovered, interest in the NBA were lukewarm. Weis would spend the next decade playing professionally in Spain.
Earlier this year, Weis announced his retirement from basketball after recurring knee problems. In his words: “We tried a number of different treatments and I’ve actually already  gone over the quota of treatments by a mile so it’s enough.”
His pro basketball career ends without ever playing a game in the NBA. But he will forever be remembered for that one moment. And in case you’re wondering what he thinks about the dunk and if it bothers him: “Why? I didn’t do anything. It was just him doing something incredible. I  can only imagine. If he jumped over me, he can jump over anybody! If  people laugh, I laugh too. At least I can I say I once played against  him.”

We can’t all be Superman. There needs to be somebody on the ground saying “Great Caesar’s Ghost.”

Superman Trolls the Golden Age Flash in Kerry Callen’s New ‘Super Antics’ 
The illustrator of ComicsAlliance’s Silver Age Remix Comics, Kerry Callen returns with a new installment of Super Antics, depicting the humorous adventures of the Golden Age Superman and all the hijinks of his wacky universe. The first episode looked at what might happen to a man who’s truly impervious to bullets, while the new strip explores the implications of eye glasses as a secret identity, while the second lampooned Clark Kent’s incredulous disguise. The latest installment sees Callen’s Superman’s first interactions with other heroes of the Golden Age, particularly The Flash, and presents a scenario we find very plausible indeed.
