This time out I am not doing what I said I was going to do last time and for that I apologize. However, I wanted to have something out for Superman Day (Greek Orthodox) since it is his 85th birthday.
(I talk about this during the episode, but I thought about doing something big for the 85th birthday, but in both 2013 and 2018 I had big plans and bad things happened in my personal life, so I thought I would just kick something out at the very last moment as to not tempt fate.)
Anyway, for this episode I reached out to writer Ed Gross, who has written or co-written a number of pop culture related books as well as being an entertainment writer for the past forty years. This June, Ed has a new book coming out all about Superman titled Voices From Krypton: The Unofficial, Unauthorized Oral History of Superman. Ed conducted hundreds of interviews with actors, writers, directors, and fans (including me) and has put together a 700 plus page oral history of the Man of Steel also features a foreword by Brandon Routh and an afterword by Mark Waid. Ed and I talk about his history as a Superman fan, why he wanted to write this book, why he likes doing oral histories, and so much more.

Next Time: More than likely it will be an installment in this year’s JLMAY. Then…I promise…I will do the two-part Top 10 thing.
