All Posters, Super Robot Figures, Patches, Art Prints shipping in three weeks!



All Movie Posters, Embroidered Patches, Super-Robot Figures, and Art Prints will be getting put in the mail this February. The T-Shirts will be sent out in March. It's taken some time, but all the rewards are being fulfilled. 

We were approached by Showtime Networks, and "The Death of 'Superman Lives'; What Happened?" is now airing on Showtime on all of its cable channels. We are all so proud and excited that our film was chosen to be on such a prestigious channel!

We will be taking the film to many comic conventions in 2016, so we hope to see you at one of these events. We will let you know where and when once the dates are all locked and confirmed.

Thank you all for your patience and support, as we've been getting the movie out to the world, we could not have done this without your help!
