The Elseworlds story SUPERMAN: LAST SON OF EARTH, by Steve Gerber, is the tale of Clark Kent, a Terran who was rocketed from the dying planet Earth to the distant world Krypton, where he was raised by the kindly couple of Jor-El and Lara.

I posted from Part 1 of the story a while back, to very positive response, so here's Part 2. You should probably read that entry before this one, or you're going to be rather confused. Part 1 was about his life as the lone human on Krypton, while Part 2 covers his return to the wastelands of Earth.

part 2 here

a few years have passed. Clark and Lois got married. Clark's parents thought it was funny he married a Lois. Lois' parents are more weirded out by her marrying a Clark Kent than someone who wasn't Indian.

in my previous post, we saw how Clark and Lois meet. I think we can all agree that it was a sweet moment but not everything in the book is quite so happy. you see, the government has been investigating the strange occurrences where Clark saved people's lives and want to get to the bottom of things. they have no idea who he is and are more than a little paranoid so they decide to set a trap.

some scans from Superman: Secret Identity. I'm pretty sure I've posted these pages back in s_d 1.0 but anyway.

Secret Identity is a four-issue mini by Kurt Busiek from 2004, I believe, that started out as an origin story for Superboy Prime but evolved into something a bit more. this Clark Kent was an ordinary, average boy born to the Kent family in Kansas. his parents thought it would be cute to name him after Superman. mostly, he found it greatly irritating, what with all the jokes and everyone assuming he loved anything and everything to do with Superman. and then one night, he discovers he has all of Superman's powers.

these scans are from the second issue where he moves to Manhattan and his coworkers set him up on a date. no prizes for guessing what the girl's name is.

The Doom That Came To Gotham.

Mike Mignola writes an Elseworlds crossover between Batman...

...and the Cthulhu mythos.

In fact, the name's a nod to H.P. Lovecraft's short story, 'The Doom That Came To Sarnath.' )

Page count: 16 out of 48. And man, I had to cut a lot of good stuff (snarky commentary, homages, references) to pare it down that far. Since this is out of print and pretty hard to find, is there any chance of being allowed to post more than the usual 1/3 limit?

Since it was requested time to post some Tangent Superman's Reign. I was a big fan of Tangent though my comic reading time came much after it ended.

It was a comic line that existed and was made of several one shots concerning different heroes within the same universe. Ones with name's like the regular DCU'ers but completely different otherwise, might post some of the old Tangent Stuff later as well but for now....the first three issues!

Basic set up...

E-9, the Tangent Universe and New Earth (erroneously labeled E-1 many times throughout the series) meet for the first (well, not actually they had a little prelude in Ion Gaurdian of the Universe and then a issue of JLA that led into the mini/maxi 12 issue series)

Issue 1 )
Issue 2 )

Issue 3! )

I remember how back when the John Byrne forum first got an advanced look at this cover, there were a few comments along the lines of, "Eek, how old is that Green Lantern? It's kind of creepy seeing him kissing someone who's physically eleven." Byrne's response was basically, "Relax, it's just a cover. It doesn't happen in the story itself."

Several people expressed interest in seeing a sample of the Elseworlds story "Citizen Wayne", set in the 30's, so:

As a bonus, here are a few Batman- or superhero-themed cartoons gleaned from different places.

I just acquired Superman/Batman: Alternate Histories. It includes "Leatherwing" (Pirate!Batman), "Legacy" (a Superman who got here 200 years earlier and prevented the American Revolution), "Crucible of Freedom" ("John Henry Irons is born and raised as a slave during the 1800s"), and finally, "Citizen Wayne" (1930s noir).

Under the cut, two scans from the pirate one.

I just acquired a copy of True Brit, about what if baby Kal-El had landed in England instead of the U.S. I was eager to read this, but alas, the author apparently really dislikes Brits. Just one page to show you what I mean. The whole book's like this.

EDIT: Turns out the author is John Cleese - I didn't even look. Poking fun at his own country is his usual schtick. It's still not what I hoped for.
