Then, he discusses the secret identity of famous heroes.
This week, I begin a two-part examination and comparison of the approaches taken to Superman and his mythos by the filmmakers behind Man of Steel and the writers and artists behind DC Comic’s “The New New 52,” specifically Grant Morrison.
What does it mean to deconstruct a character or mythology instead of re-imagining it or updating it? Listen to find out my take on the issue.
In this week’s episode, I take a look at the graphic novels that the screenwriters, director, and actors behind “Man of Steel” cited as inspiration for their big-screen take on Superman.
Your best option is to buy these Superman graphic novels from your local comic book shop! By doing so, you support the store owners and the comic book industry? Not sure if you have a comic book shop in your area? Visit www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-COMIC-BOOK.

We discuss the new Superman costume for Action Comics#1. We also discuss comic book movies for a little bit. Also, new feature. Fan questions! Submit your questions for us to answer!
We discuss the DC re-launch titles and what we’re gonna pick up. Also (BE FOREWARNED!) we discuss the cacophony of complaints about the re-launch and more specifically the costume change of Superman. I want to let anyone know that listens to this podcast if you are really upset about the re-launch, you should maybe not listen to this because we go on a rant (Isaac more than anyone) about why we feel people are taking this too seriously and need to relax. We hope you enjoy it. We did!

Welcome to the new format. This week, we look back to the Superman comics on shelves for April of 2007… both of them. Thanks to DC’s erratic (Late) publishing schedule, we have a lighter episode than normal.
We roll out the new comic book rating system, and look deeper into the New Earth era.
We look at Wonder Woman’s history, and her relationship with Kal-El before moving on to our second book of the week.
And we wrap up with e-mails- Is Pa Kent actually a liar?? Has Michael Bailey found the secret that could have fixed the entire New Earth era??? Listen and find out.
