Sideshow Collectibles returns to the alternative reality of the 2003 miniseries by Mark Millar, Dave Johnson and Kilian Plunkett with its new Superman: Red Son statue.
The first in a new collection of “Premium Format” (that is, “non-articulated”) figures based on the Elseworlds comic, the red- and gray- clad Man of Steel stands 25 inches tall atop the symbol of the Soviet Union. Wonder Woman and Batman figures will follow.
If, in the more than four years since its premiere on iTunes, you never got around to watching the 12-part motion-comic adaptation of Superman: Red Son, now’s your chance — for free: The fan site Superman Homepage notes that Warner Bros. has released the entire serial on YouTube, so you can judge for yourself how the 2003 Elseworlds miniseries by Mark Millar, Dave Johnson, Kilian Plunkett and others makes the transition.
Fair warning, though: It’s spread over 25 videos, and this 2009 adaptation may seem a little rough when compared to some more recent motion comics. But, hey, it’s free!
