This time out I finish up the two part series of “lost” conversations that aren’t really lost in the traditional sense. Back in 2018 I had this series of episodes planned where I would look at the various centennial issues of Action Comics (100, 200, 300, etc.) leading up to the release of Action Comics #1000. That didn’t happen. For reasons. I go into it during the episode, so you’ll hear it there. Long story short, I recorded two installments and they’ve sat on the hard drive since then.
Last time I had a chat with Jon Wilson. This time I have a chat with Bob Fisher, who hosts Superman Forever Radio, about the Superman story from Action Comics #300, Superman Under the Red Sun. The Man of Steel is trapped in the far future where the Earth has a red sun. How does he get out of this mess? Bob and I talk about that, where the Kents lived when Clark was a boy, Red Kryptonite, and a bunch of other Silver Age topics that involve Superman during the time period when this comic was published. We also briefly touch on the Supergirl story that appeared in this issue, which leads to a tangent about Jim Mooney and Curt Swan.
Below are the cover and select pages from the comic discussed in this episode.
Promos played during this episode include…
- Podcast Full of Kryptonite – Hosted by James, Jason and John
- Superman Forever Radio – Hosted by Bob Fisher
