Behold...The Vision!

This is a leaked piece of design work that has been floating the 'net for a couple of days now. It's our best look so far at what Paul Bettany as the Vision will look like in next summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron.



It's very much the classic design- I was figuring we might see something more akin to the John Byrne 'pale' Vision redesign of the 1990s. Still I'm guessing on screen and in action will look fantastic.

Love That Panel: Batman #36 by Greg Capullo

DC released the cover for November's Batman #36 by artist Greg Capullo. The stark black and yellow cover- along with the title lettering- evokes the classic Watchmen look for this cover. It has the minimalist feel that at the same time carries with it a heavy sense of atmosphere and emotion.

I love Greg Capullo on Batman- this is the book he was made to draw and this cover- as simplistic as some might regard the design- just further brings it home for me.

Action Comics #1 Sells for New Auction Record

The much talked about copy of Action Comics #1, graded as a 9.0 by CGC, sold for $3,207,852 on eBay over the weekend. This copy is one of only 6 known copies of the famous first issue appearance of Superman to be known to be in existence with a grade of 6.0 or better. It is also notable because the sale was run privately and offered on eBay and not one of the more famous auction houses that specialize in key issue sales such as Comic Connect or Heritage Auctions.
