Hugh Jackman has his claws out on the cover of the latest Hero Complex print magazine — the summer issue features an in-depth interview with the actor on his latest starring turn as Logan in “The Wolverine,” and it’s available for free at Comic-Con International all weekend.
This time out, we pay special tribute to the Man of Steel. As Superman turns 75, we look at 10 of the most memorable comic book covers in the character’s storied history; there’s also a quiz to test your knowledge about the Last Son of Krypton.
We also talk to Guillermo del Toro about the making of his Jaeger vs. kaiju epic, “Pacific Rim,” and “District 9” star Sharlto Copley about his latest project with director Neill Blomkamp, the upcoming “Elysium.”
On the television side, critic Robert Lloyd appraises the legacy of “The X-Files,” as the show arrives at its 20th anniversary — even two decades on, Chris Carter’s brainchild remains a glorious mystery — and on the video-game front, we preview “Lego Marvel Super Heroes.”
If you’re in Los Angeles, pick up the summer issue of the magazine at Meltdown Comics or at both Earth-2 Comics locations, in Sherman Oaks and Northridge. In New York, the magazine is available at all three Midtown Comics locations.
And, of course, no matter where you are you can download the magazine through the Hero Complex iPad reader app. The app is 99 cents, but each magazine is free, so you can check out our back issues as well.
Look for the next issue to hit stands in October.
