Nerdy News

In case you're interested, EW.com has an exclusive first look at DC Comics Final Crisis. The article previews five pages from the first issue with art by J.G. Jones and dialogue by Grant Morrison. You can also choose to view the pages in Morrison's original detailed-script form. Also included is Jones' design work on Darkseid. And that's all I'll say because I didn't look at the pages. I for one, want to go in fresh. Final Crisis begins May 28th.

In other Nerdy News, you may want to make a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art if you're a fan of superheroes and haute couture. The special exhibit "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy" will be there through September 1, 2008.
"Featuring movie costumes, avant-gard haute couture, and high-performance sportswear. it reveals how the superhero serves as the ultimate metaphor for fashion and its ability to empower and transform the human body. Objects are organizes thematically around particular superheroes, whose movie costumes and superpowers are catalysts for the discussion of key concepts of superheroism and their expression in fashion."
Sounds like a lot of fun to me, but then again, I'm a girl and the fact that they have Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman costume has me sold.
