New Comic Wednesday: November 2, 2011

Wednesday is the best day of the week because that’s when the new books arrive in stores. Here are some of the comics scheduled to hit the shelves on November 2, 2011. Your local retailer will probably have these and others, so make sure to check with them for more details.

This week I am looking forward to reading DC Comics (FYI, both DC and CNN are owned by Time Warner) "Action Comics #3." This book's storyline has just started to hit its stride and is giving us what I think is an interesting retelling of Superman's birth.

Recently, I was lucky enough to talk to the writer of "Action Comics," Grant Morrison. I asked him what’s it like to write for Superman and "Action Comics."

"It’s a kind of method-acting thing," he said. "Superman is very much a physical character, very action oriented - it says it in the title."

But how does one method-act an alien? An Earthling like Morrison can write "Action Comics" because there's an earthy quality about Superman, he says.

"Superman (is a) son of farmers who fights for the simple man," he says.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the new Action Comics. Is there a comic out there you are really loving? If so let us know in the comments. We are always looking for tips on good comics!
