Check Out the SUPERMAN reboot in Action Comics

It's no secret that I love Superman (Batman, Green Lantern, Flash and others) and still collect comics. 
   This past September, DC Comics rebooted all of its comics and took some back to a time early in their careers.
    ACTION COMICS is set 10-15 years in the past, and 5 years prior to the current JUSTICE LEAGUE arc, and shows us a young Superman, in his early 20s, just having moved to Metropolis… and ready to save the world.. by any means necessary.
 My comics shop- Third Eye in Annapolis said in its blog: "In the first four issues of Action, Morrison has done SO much awesome stuff, from introducing big time Superman bad guys like Metallo (and hinting at Brainiac), to supporting cast like Steel and Jimmy Olsen, to the Bottle City of Kandor… it’s incredible.   His portrayal of Luthor is especially interesting."
Now, in Action #5, out this week, "Morrison is doing something that is especially huge… he’s retelling, and redefining the origins of SUPERMAN  in the 21st century, while not throwing away concepts that came before, but modernizing others," Third Eye Comics said.  ***I can't wait! The first 4 issues were great!***

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
