Delightful Michael Cho cover art from upcoming Superboy archive collection

Nice pic! And I'm looking forward to seeing the book, which collects More Fun Comics #101 - 107 and Adventure Comics #103 - 121.

Thor movie pictures

Here are a couple with Chris Hemsworth as the Thunder God and Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Tom Hiddleston as Loki. Nice to see they're using a Jack Kirby-style design to the movie but I hope they didn't forget the cool helmets!

Dark Horse to collect Frazetta's White Indian

The artist's longest-running comic book work will be out in hardcover in December:

THE CLASSIC COMICS ARCHIVES VOLUME 1: WHITE INDIAN

Art by Frank Frazetta.

The longest comic-book run of Frank Frazetta's career! First appearing as a backup feature in Durango Kid in 1949, Dan BrandÑknown as the "White Indian"Ñis a colonial-era city boy whose life is marred by tragedy. When the death of his fiancŽe sends Brand through the wilderness on a trek to kill her murderer, he also begins a journey that will transform him into a hardened pioneer survivalist. The powerful sequential work of Frank Frazetta is in the spotlight in this collection, with all interior pages scanned from original comic-book issues and digitally cleaned. This collection reprints all of Frank Frazetta's White Indian work in an affordable hardcover format!

200 pages, $49.99, in stores on Dec. 1.
