This week Mike and Jeff end 2009 in fine style by presenting the second part of their two part interview with Jerry Ordway. This time out, which is slightly longer than the first part, we get more in depth about Jerry’s first few months as the writer of Adventures of Superman in addition to hearing more behind the scenes stuff about the creation of the Milton Fine Brainiac and even the real deal about The Circle. All of this and Superman movie talk as well. This was such a fun interview for Jeffrey and Michael and once again they would like to thank Jerry for his time and enthusiasm for this interview.

This week Mike and Jeff have a holiday treat for you! A couple of weeks ago the boys “sat down” with writer/artist Jerry Ordway to chat about his work on Superman. In this first part (Yes, there are two parts, folks. Jerry was very generous with his time.) Jerry talks about how he became a fan of Superman, how coloring books led to him breaking into the business, how he was tapped to pencil Adventures of Superman and the very candid behind the scenes stories of how Bibbo, Cat Grant, Jose Delgado and Emil Hamilton were created. Jeff and Mike had a lot of fun with this interview and would like to thank Jerry for taking the time to talk to two Superman fans.

And just think; there’s another hour to come next week!
