En update på båda serierna från Wizard World LA. Från Newsarama.com
Talking at length about All-Star Superman, Grant Morrison told fan attendees he wants to do a Superman story that everyone can get behind, remember and understand. Morrison is tying to capture the feel of the animated series, not steeped in a particular continuity.
As examples he said in All-Star Lois and Clark are and Superman was Superboy in this youth.
Morrison explained he’s going to play with the fun elements of the Superman mythos from different eras spanning different continuities, including his own. Solaris the Tyrant Sun from his DC One Million will appear.
His idea of the title is that he’s telling the folktales of Superman … the stories highlighting the parts of the Superman mythos people will remember in a hundred or 500 years.
But he also wants to find new things in the characters as well. In a pure Morrison moment the writer said he’s wants to look at Lex Luthor and understand him in a different way that make readers understand, “Why Luthor draws Superman’s eyebrows on his own face.”
Frank Quitely has started illustrating and Morrison says his work has a Neal Adams quality to it, particularly citing a scene of Superman flying over the surface of the sun in the first issue.
Each issue of All-Star will be self-contained. Issue #2 is a Lois story; issue #3 is a Jimmy Olsen story; and #4 will be a Bizarro story. This will be a new take on Bizarro in which anyone who touches Bizarro becomes a Bizarro.
Issue #5 will probably be a Superboy story. Morrison described the cover as Superboy and his dog looking down on a gravestone saying, “My father is dead and it’s all my fault”, a clear homage to the Silver Age.
All-Star Superman will be a 12 issue run, at least in regards to Morrison teaming with Quitely. The writer said 12 issues are all Quitely can handle before his head explodes. Those 12 issues will tell their whole story, but Morrison added he’d like to do more and has come up with another 8 stories already.
Asked by Berganza if the Legion of Superheroes will show up in the title, Morrison replied, “Well, now that you mention it.”
- On a quick All-Star note, Berganza said All-Star Batman and Robin with Frank Miller and Jim Lee will be more than 6 issues.
