Fans of Superman, rejoice. All others, move along; there’s nothing to see here.
First, the genre releases:
- Adventures of Superman – Complete Third and Fourth Seasons: The seasons got shorter when they switched to colour.
- Equinox: The Criterion Collection releases a classic B-movie.
- Gatchaman Collection 7: I have no idea what the content is like, but the boxes sure are pretty.
- The Hills Have Eyes (Unrated Edition)
- Justice League – Season Two: Animated superheroes at their best.
- Lois and Clark – The New Adventures of Superman Season Three
- Look, Up in the Sky – The Amazing Story of Superman: Technically non-fiction, this Kevin Burns documentary about the history of the character is listed here, since most interested folks will be reading this section for sure.
- Oh My Goddess: The Collector’s Edition
- The Omen: Richard Donner’s movie in a two disk set.
- Sister Princess – Complete Collection
- Smallville/Lois and Clark/Adventures of Superman Seasons 1 Collection: The first season of each series, shrinkwrapped together.

- Superman – The Animated Series Volume 3: Completing the series.
Now, the non-genre releases:
- Boom Town
- Charlie Chan Collection, Vol. 1: Get your politically incorrect humour right here.
- Clark Gable – The Signature Collection: Warner always does a great job with these.
- Eight Below
- Newsradio – Season Four
- NYPD Season Four
- What’s Eating Gilbert Grape
The pick of the week is the second season of Justice League. Those guys understood Superman better than the creators of the other products out this month, and Justice League is just plain better than the Superman solo series.
