This episode explores the man of steel via the 31st century past, present, and future by way of a flashback device in Action Comics #850, an emotional story about Superman‘s loneliness.

Then it’s on to Superman #663, which features the young gods, Lightray, and finally something relevant to Camelot Falls, the semi-ongoing storyline.

Finally, it’s artificial life vs biological life, by way of BRAINIAC in Superman/Batman #35.

DOWNLOAD/ RSS / ITUNES / STITCHER RADIO

This week, the Superman tales written by British comic book legend Alan Moore.

From the cracked mirror look at the politics of Krypton in “For the Man Who Has Everything” to the tear-jerking epic finale of “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow” Alan Moore brings a pathos to the Man of Steel.

Also, news from the SFR Daily Planet- Tom Welling on Jimmy Kimmel, Bryan Singer on why Superman Returns failed, Bizarro to the rescue, and more.

Then, we return to the animated universe of the Man of Steel, as he takes on the menace of Metallo in “The Way of All Flesh” before wrapping it up with a production note.

Remember to come back Thursday when we review the Superman comics cover dated July of 2007, including Action Comics #850.

DOWNLOAD/ RSS / ITUNES / STITCHER RADIO

It’s the Thursday review episode, and we have progressed one month to June of 2007, but…
June, 2007 had a huge amount of Superman books… exactly one. Superman Confidential #5 was the only Superman book published with that cover date.
No Joke. One in-continuity Superman comic.
But, “Krypton” ratchets to a breathless climax, and it all comes together, all at once.
So, it’s time to look at Tim Sale, and his work on Superman, Heroes, and more.
Then, we look at what was happening elsewhere in the DC Universe, before moving on to Early July 2007, where Superman confronts a “Crisis of Faith” and, will the real redemption please stand up, please stand up??
It all leads to next week’s look at Action Comics #850, Superman #663, and Superman/Batman #35.
And don’t forget to come back Sunday, when it’s time to take a look at the seminal Superman stories of Alan Moore- “For the Man Who Has Everything” and “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow“, and the animated debut of Metallo in Superman: The Animated Series.

This week, we take a look at Superboy, from the adventures of Superman when he was a boy, to Conner Kent, and his time as a television star.

The young hero that was, then wasn’t, then was again. And the menace of Superboy Prime.

Before that, though, we hear from Man of Steel castmates Michael Shannon, and Diane Lane on their auditions for the movie, as well as the latest rumors swarming around the internet.

Then, it’s a look at a very draining episode of Superman: The Animated Series, as The Parasite makes his debut, and underwhelms.
