Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the
World of Warcraft. Matthew Rossi will be your host today.
While I don't keep up with many comics nowadays, I was always a big fan of Kerry Gammill
, who was a pretty big name in the 80's and 90's. These four panels are from his run on Superman
, during a storyline after John Byrne left the book and Supes was flying around in space
trying to shed his guilt over having killed General Zod (yes, Superman killed General Zod in the comics a good two decades before he did it in the movies) - this particular sequence is near the end of the storyline. Superman's been dragged through a series of gladiatorial combats on a planet called WarWorld, much of his power has been depleted by his travels, and now he's facing the big bad himself, Mongul, in a hand to hand showdown to try and save the life of another gladiator, a guy named Draaga. (They adapted an episode of Justice League
in the early 2000's from this story.)
I've always just liked these four panels. Gammill was at the top of his game here, and he really gave us a sense of the all or nothing stakes of this one, last punch and showed us, without having Superman say
anything like "This is it, I'll put all my strength into one last punch" exactly how that would play out. It's a really great series of panels. Gammill went on to design monsters and do storyboards for movies, but I've always felt his run on Superman was really underrated
. And I admit I laugh a little seeing Superman rocking the beard and sandals look.
Anyway, some questions.
Panda Gonzalez asks:
Q4TQ: do you think Frostwolf clan will be fully commited to the Iron Horde?
From what we heard at Blizzcon, no. It seems likely that the Frostwolves will be helping out our
Horde, in some fashion, as the Frostwolves are big players in Frostfire Ridge, which is the Horde starting zone on Draenor.
