For tomorrow's class, be sure to read as much of Superman: Red Son as possible, but try to read meaningfully (and slowly) rather than superficially (and fast). Comic books may look like easy eye-candy, but they repay careful attention--consider how both words and images are telling the story.
Remember: be sure to bring your Template Response Questions to class tomorrow as well!
For those interested, here's a brief interview with Mark Millar, the Scottish writer of Superman: Red Son, who has also done work on The Avengers, The Fantastic Four, and most notably Kick-Ass, which was made into 2 films (which the interview partially addresses). However, in the interview he discusses the genesis for his idea of Superman's 'Russian' origin, and why he could never adapt it into a movie. As an interesting side note, Millar is an MBE, which stands for "Member (of the) British Empire." Not bad for a comic book writer!
