He Who Would Be Superman!

Since the creation of Superman it has been the goal of movie makers and TV producers to bring him live before fans and audiences. This gave rise to the question as to who should play the 'Man in Blue'? The most notable of all actors has been Christopher Reeve. His role in the Donner films from the 1970's made all of us believe that a man could fly. It was as if Reeve was born to play the role. However, he was not the first nor the last. Several have taken on the role of Superman in the movies and on television. Even the famous Tarzan actor, Ron Ely, portrayed Superman as a retired hero in an episode of Superboy in 1991. With a new Superman film on the way fans are eager to see who will be chosen for the role.

I Love Lucy and 1957 Superman (George Reeves)

Here is a great clip I found featuring George Reeves playing Superman on the I Love Lucy Show! Enjoy!

What Villain Would You Love To See In The New Superman Film?

Every Superman film has featured Lex Luthor. We have not seen the diversity in villains in Big Blue's films as we have in Batman's on screen antics. Christopher Nolan's success with Batman villains, notable The Joker, has raised this question especially since Warner Brothers seems to have given him some control over the next film. Superman has no shortage of enemies! Some would be awesome to see in action giving him a challenge! We have put together a list to see who you would like to see on the silver screen. Feel free to leave comments as to who you would like to see and what actors/actresses might portray them. We are anxious to see what you come up with! Have fun! VoteWhat villain would you most like to see in the upcoming Superman film?

All I Want To Do Is Sell Comic Books

Many of you have the same passion as myself. We love comic books! I have been collecting comics since I was 14 years old. That was 24 1/2 years ago. While I would not classify myself as an expert, I have a vast knowledge of the industry and consider myself a continuous, progressive student. There are so many interesting things to learn ranging from artist techniques to character history to creator biographies. The field is wide open and as a true lover I am always striving to learn more.

Most of my life I have had careers that were non-related to comic books. However, my heart's desire has always been to have a comic book store or to have a job somehow related to comics. As a kid I wanted to write and pencil for DC or Marvel but those dreams never came about, nor have I given up on that completely. They are still goals I have along those lines. Still, the desire to be involved has never been stronger.

As the economy began to fall, I began to make plans to open a store. But those plans have slowed due to the economic troubles we have all faced. The business I did own practically dried up overnight and the last two years have been a struggle. So I taught myself how to build a website and I am still learning new things. I decided to build an online store and start working towards my dream of a physical store. I opened the online store before it was 100% complete and named it after the name my best friend and I came up with years ago, Krypto-Knight Comics. I try to make my prices fair amd I have worked to do all I can in promoting the store. Jobs are scarce around here and this is my primary means of survival. Having visited many comic book stores in my time and having noted that many are dark, dirty or have a negative atmosphere, it has been my goal to do just the opposite and create a place where positivity and creativity thrive. I would like to see a place where the colors are bright and super-heroes are the order of the day. In today's negative world who wouldn't want to visit a place like that?

At present, though, it's more about survival. I appreciate all who have done business with me and who have helped fuel my dream of owning a literal store. I want to thank all of you for your business, you support and your passion for comics. I look forward to 2011 being our best year yet!
