Superman vs Demons Part2

Posted in Comic Books, DC Comics, Demons, entertainment, horror, Horror Babes, Satan with tags , , , on October 10, 2017 by chrisdsav

The Never Ending Battle….IN HELL!!!!

The Blaze/Satanus War ran in Adventures of Superman#493…Action Comics#680..Man of Steel#15 ….and Superman#71by Roger Stern Jerry Ordway, Tom Grummet, Louise Simonson, Brett Breeding Mike Carlin and the rest of the Superman team at that time. 

Fosworth the former editor and chief of the Daily Planet tried to kill himself and was saved by Superman at the behest of the demon Blaze in the guise of an Angel. Blaze begins sending demons thru mirrors to attack the people in the Newstime building. Lord Satanus arrives in his first post crisis apearence to stop his SISTER!!! Yup its a war of siblings with Superman Jimmy Lois Perry and Alice caught in the middle. Jimmy while taping Turtle Boy gets a vision from Jerry White that BLAZE has returned. Alice and Perry are guided by Jerry White,into a church to save the people of the News Time building. Its revealed that Satanus is in fact Newstime Editor and Cheif Colin Thornton. He is very much portrayed as the lesser of two evils between him and his sister, but that dont mean you shoukd trust him. Superman and Satanus must stop Blaze even if its costs Superman his soul. 

This was a great follow up to the Soul Search storyline I posted about last week. Out of all the art in this story I love the way Grummet draws Lord Satanus the most. Even tho its only two panels he really has a great look about him showing he lives up to his namesake. The depiction of HeLL or Limbo the dark dimension is a bit different than last we saw but that might be the interpertaion of the art team. 

In an interview on the Superman podcast From Crisis to Crisis Jerry Ordwat talks about wanting to do something different after several normal superhero battles and with someone who is pure unrelenting evil. Unlike Lex Luthor or Ugly Manheim Blaze could not be reasoned with.

Satanus would return during the rebuiling of Metropolis and Lex Luthor run for President. Blaze would return in Adventures of Superman #500 to torment Johnathan Kent as he looks for Clark in the afterlife. Both would play a huge part of the Reign in Hell crossover in 2008.

Superman vs Demons

Posted in Comic Books, DC Comics, Demons, entertainment, horror, Horror Babes, Monsters with tags , , , on October 4, 2017 by chrisdsav

The never ending battle for Truth Justice and the American way incudes going to hell sometimes to save the souls of those you care about. The next few weeks in October I will be talking about Superman and Horror as there are a lot of stories involing the Man of Steel and monsters. Joining me for this will be Michael Bailey at the end of the month a writer for the Superman Homepage and Podcaster of a few Superman shows. As well as another guest with the details still being worked on.
Soul Search Parts 1-3 ran in Action Comics #656, Superman vol 2#47, and Adventures of Superman #470. By Roger Stern, Brett Breeding, Jerry Ordway, Dan Jurgens and the rest of the Superteam at the time. 

Jerry White (son of Perry White Editor and Chief  and Jimmy Olson are guned down out side a club that Jerry worked at for a woman named Blaze. As they lay bleading and dying in a hospital bed Clark and Lois rush to the hospital to find out their condition. Clark is vistied by the Black Racer (Angel of Death type character neither good nor bad just does his job to bring souls to their FINAL DESTINATION ;).

He alerts Clark that he can save his friends lives if he comes with him right away and they fly to a volcano which happens tk be the home of the demones BLAZE, the same Blaze Jerry was working for. A cloven footed red skin horned demon in a scantly clad dress. She tries to kill Superman by dumping him in liquid hot magma ….and turning him into a demon. She is torturing the souls of Jerry and Jimmy just for shear pleasure like something from a Clive Barker Novel. Superman is able to save Jimmy but Jerry dies unfortunately. 

I condesnsed a lot of this story mainly cuz its filled with side plots and characters not important to the topic of this article. 

This is a great horror story I wish was made into an animates episode of any cartoon with Superman in the last 20 years. A live action version of this story on Smallville or Lois and Clark would have been great if they could get KNB effects to do the demon make up on a demon Superman or Blaze her self. Blaze would also summon a demonic version of a character who only had two apearnces alled Skyhook a bat like creature who waa kidnapping children but was killed in battle with Superman and Maggie Sawyer. 

Superman fighting for his life snd the souls of those he cares about in hell would be a interesting new story for a new reader to get into. If you get the basics of who Superman is then that’s all you really need. ( There is a subplot of Jerry actually being Lex Luthors son) Blaze is pretty much introduced here in all her demonic glory and reminds me in a lot of waya of Mephisto…except no Marriage destroying powers. She cackles laughs and is just pure EVIL!!!! I always had a thing for Goth Bad Girl Demons and Blaze certainly takes the cake. Reminds me of Cenobite woman and Dark Angel The Ascent the Charles Band Full Moon movie.

This story would be followed up in the Blaze Satanus War which Ill cover next week.

He also was the co-creator of Wolverine and other great X-Men characters. Tune in a week from today on my podcast The Dead Tv Podcast as me Mistress Zeneca and returning guest  Michael Ravenshadow from Trick or Treat radio talk about the passing of this great writer.

Sandman Revealed 

Posted in Comic Books, Monsters, news, Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 16, 2017 by chrisdsav

MAJOR DARK NIGHTS THE METAL SPOILER AHEAD READ AT YOUR OWN RISK

Have you ever read Sandman you really need to give it read some time one of the best gothic Supernatural comics ever and no I don’t mean from the tv show. Morpheus also know as DREAM is one of the super powers mystical God’s of the DC Universe.  He fought many a great nightmare creatures trying to  steal his power. The writing was so amazing by Neil Gaiman with a rotating cast of artists. Once  during Grant Morrison run on JLA he appeared in the book but that was his successor Daniel. Death his sister would appear to Lex Luther in 2011. As readers of The Sandman may recall, Dream is actually Daniel Hall, the successor to Morpheus, the original star of that series

It had been asked several times if Vertigo titles had appeared in DC regular continuity and with what happened in DC Rebirth #1 last year and Superman Reborn and Batman/Flash The Button  a few months ago with Dr.Manhatten and the Watchmen it seems as Vertigo universe is bleeding they to ours. Now with the last page of the Metal #1 revealing Dream of The Endless it seems the rebirth is mergering it or it always has been when Manhattan formed the new 52 6 years ago.

I recommend picking up The Sandman Overture by Gaiman and JH Williams III and Dave Stewart as well as Sandman  vol 1-10 of the original Vertigo 90s series.
