Sunday Catch-Up – August 27

Let’s finish off the weekend with a look at the week that was and the things that are happening in the Geekery world.

What a fight last night, huh? I’d say more about it, but I’m writing this in the seventh round, so…

Superman has always been a symbol of peace and has frequently railed against hate, and DC Comics is celebrating that with a remastered poster from the 1940s.

On the DC Comics blog Friday, the publisher showed off a piece of work believed to be done by Wayne Boring in 1949 that was featured on school book covers.

According to the blog post, the art team at DC Comics restored the image, “offering a much larger and clearer image of this classic piece of art that embodies a core value that we as Americans hold so dear.”

Help keep your school All American indeed.

Guillermo del Toro’s proposed remake of the 1966 film Fantastic Voyage – about a crew shrunk down and sent into the body of a scientist to save his life – has been pushed back a year according to Deadline. The director needs some more time on his latest film, The Shape of Water. So Fantastic Voyage is being pushed back from 2019 to 2020. I’m sure we’re all shocked.

And because I’m tired, we’ll leave it at that. Talk amongst yourselves!
