Superman Forever Radio 20- April 2007


Welcome to the new format. This week, we look back to the Superman comics on shelves for April of 2007… both of them. Thanks to DC’s erratic (Late) publishing schedule, we have a lighter episode than normal.

We roll out the new comic book rating system, and look deeper into the New Earth era.

In Superman #661, The Man of Steel teams with Wonder Woman to take on a life-force draining villainess, and Lois shows Diana a cyber-Cafe.

We look at Wonder Woman’s history, and her relationship with Kal-El before moving on to our second book of the week.

In Superman Conidential #4, Superman receives a beat down, courtesy of Lex Luthor and Kryptonite, before Jimmy comes to his rescue, and delivers him to Clark Kent?!?!?

And we wrap up with e-mails- Is Pa Kent actually a liar?? Has Michael Bailey found the secret that could have fixed the entire New Earth era??? Listen and find out.

Superman Forever Radio 15- All-Star Superman

Plus, we begin a series of character profiles, beginning with the Daily Planet‘s own cigar chomping, bulldog Editor-In-Chief Perry White. Learn what really set Perry White against Lex Luthor, and why the chief matters.
Also, we explore the long-standing relationship of Lois Lane and Clark Kent, and why it is important to the Superman mythology.
And, of course, we look issue by issue through the New Earth era Superman books with January, 2007. We’ll continue “Last Son” in Action Comics, “Camelot Falls” in Superman, “Enemies Among Us” in Superman/Batman, and begin “Kryptonite” in the pages of Superman Confidential.
