IT ALL COMES BACK TO SUPERMAN EPISODE 14 – SUPERMAN IS FOR EVERYONE: COSPLAY

Episode 14 – Superman Is For Everyone: Cosplay

This time out I’m kicking off a series that will be going off and on this year called Superman Is For Everybody.  The idea is that instead of talking about a Superman movie or television series or comic book I will be talking to people that channel their love and affection for Superman in different ways.  For this first installment I sat down with two friends of mine that cosplay as Superman.  David Simms and Joshua Jarmin (hosts of the very NSFW One More Round) have been cosplaying as Superman for several years at conventions and for charity.  They were nice enough to give me an hour of their time to talk about what got them into Superman, what made them want to dress like the character, what goes into getting a costume, the responsibility of dressing like Superman, and more.  It was a lot of fun and I’d like to thank them once again for appearing on the show.

(As if you needed to be told, I’m the guy in the middle.)

It All Comes Back to Superman is available on a variety of formats.  It’s on Apple Podcasts, the Google Play Store, and even Spotify.  If you like accessing the RSS Feed directly, you can do that here.  Feedback for the show can be left below or you can head on over to the It All Comes Back To Superman Facebook Page.  The email address for the show is [email protected].

Next Time: A very naval gazing episode where I give a State of the Union of my Superman fandom and also look at Doomsday Clock #12.

  1. Thank you for this episode. I really enjoyed the conversation among the tree of you. I must say, I admire David Simms and Joshua Jarmin, for their dedication to getting into (and staying in) physical (and emotional) shape to portray Superman. I loved hearing them talk about the responsibility involved, both in and out of costume. I must admit, when I’m out in public wearing a Superman t-shirt or hoodie or my prized leather jacket with the S-shield on the breast and on the back, I am always on my best behavior, even down to picking up litter on the street or, as a pedestrian, not crossing against a light, even when there is no cross-traffic. I think the world would be a better place if everyone wore Superman gear, and took the attendant responsibility seriously.
    It’s always fun, too, when you ask guests questions about their favorite portrayals of Superman, or their favorite supporting characters, or music, etc. You’re like the James Lipton of “Inside the Superman Studio”, and I enjoy thinking about my own answers to those questions, and hearing your guests’ answers.
    Looking forward to your next episode.

  2. *The first sentence in my comment above should say “among the three of you.”, not “tree of you.”
