QuoteJonathan Nolan: He [Batman] has this one rule, as the Joker says in The Dark Knight. But he does wind up breaking it. Does he break it in the third film?

Christopher Nolan: He breaks it in...

Jonathan Nolan: ...the first two.

These are the comics I was reading back in the day:




They had me interested, no doubt about it.








In case I haven't made myself abundantly clear, I love Alex Ross's artwork including his Supes.

I'm going to try and find a copy of Action #1000 today.


"Imagination is a quality given a man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humour was provided to console him for what he is."

I'm going to try and pick up a copy myself at the weekend. Superman + Bendis is an intriguing combo.


Meanwhile Henry Cavill has paid his respects to the character on Instagram with the following message.

QuoteFor 80 years he has been saving our tails and indeed perhaps our souls. Inspiring us to be greater than we thought ourselves able. He's certainly changed me, given me hope, allowed me space to push myself beyond the limits of my patience. Truly, what would a world be without Superman? He paved the way for all of our favourite heroes even if he's not yours personally.
A huuuuge thank you to the incredibly talented artists and writers over the years who have given us so much. Within us, Superman will now live no matter how old he gets. Happy Birthday my friend.
