sfr60albumIn the 60th episode of Superman Forever Radio, David decides NOT to do a commentary, and instead talk about the comic that inspired the material- Action Comics 775.

In a day and age when Superman is considered out of touch with the times, this show set out to correct that misconception- and this comic was at the epicenter of that movement.

It’s a passionate talk about what it means to be a Superman fan, and David has a message that he needs to get off of his chest.

This week’s episode begins the first of two parts that look at the Superman comics on shelves cover dated December, 2007.

First up, Superman must contend with the Bizarro Justice League in Action Comics #857 by Geoff Johns, Richard Donner, and Eric Powell.

Then, the search for the third Kryptonian begins in Superman #668, and the answers will surprise you.

And that leads us to the second part of a look at Jack Kirby’s Fourth World Characters, from Highfather to Granny Goodness, and even the motherbox.

Which leads perfectly into Superman/Batman #41, and a showdown with Darkseid, Batman’s inner feelings, and a mind-controlled Superman in Superman/Batman #41.

And then, how did Metropolis end up under water? What is the secret to Lori Lemaris‘ power over the man of steel? Find out in Superman Confidential #7.

All of this, and a look at Lana Lang‘s return in Superman: The Animated Series.
