September 25, 2014: Superman Fan Podcast - Episode 302 (Part 1)Print

Superman Fan Podcast The Superman Fan Podcast, hosted by Billy Hogan, is currently featuring the silver age of Superman stories found in Action Comics, Superman, Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen, Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane and World's Finest Comics.

    Episode #302 (Part 1): SUPERMAN #160, April 1963 (I misspoke during the recording and said the cover date was April 1960), was published around February 7, 1963. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of 12c. Mort Weisinger was the editor, and the cover was drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger, featuring the two part story which began the issue. Both stories in this issue have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN vol. IV.

The Superman Fan Podcast is a proud member of the Superman Podcast Network. You may also subscribe to the podcast through iTunes or follow the RSS Feed.


September 25, 2014: From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman PodcastPrint

From Crisis to Crisis Welcome to the 173rd episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.

Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.

In this special and yet at the same time normal sized episode of the show Mike and Jeff talk about the rematch everyone was talking about in 1994... SUPERMAN/DOOMSDAY: HUNTER/PREY! The boys talk about all three issues of the prestige format series that saw not only the return of Doomsday but of a certain cyborg as well. As the story opens Clark is having a rough time sleeping as a recurring nightmares of facing Doomsday and decides that he needs to find the creature that killed him. Meanwhile Doomsday does indeed return and ends up on Apokolips where he faces off against Darkseid. If that weren't bad enough Hank Henshaw also returns and it is up to the Man of Steel to not only save Apokolips but stop both the Cyborg and Doomsday.

We also learn Doomsday's origin. That's kind of important.

Next time: Well... the boys were going to jump into WORLDS COLLIDE and they even said as much at the end of this episode but they decided to go through all of the e-mail they've received over the past year instead. So, next time FEEDBACK and then after that part one of WORLDS COLLIDE!

You can subscribe to the show in two ways. First there is the RSS Feed and there is also the iTunes link. You can also download the episode directly.

If you want to comment on the show or contact the hosts you can always private message Mike and Jeff, leave comments here or email them at fromcrisistocrisis@gmail.com. All questions, concerns, fears, trepidations and cheap shots are welcome.


September 25, 2014: Exhibition - Superman: The Jewish Roots of America's Super HeroPrint

Superman The Temple Israel Museum in Memphis, Tennessee is currently hosting an exhibition titled "Superman: The Jewish Roots of America's Super Hero".

    In 1938, two Jewish kids from Cleveland, Ohio, created Superman, the world's most-enduring super hero. In doing so, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster wrapped their comic book character in a dual identity and concealed the signs of Jewish culture that they embedded in their Mensch of Steel.

    Today super hero scholars and collectors continue to ask: What did Siegel and Shuster have in mind when they gave birth to Superman 76 years ago? Who at that time knew that Superman's roots were Jewish? Yet clues to Superman's Jewish origins are numerous. As the story goes, Superman was born on the planet Krypton. There his name was Kal-El, which in Hebrew means "voice of God." Knowing they had only moments before Krypton was to explode, Kal-El's doomed parents put their special child in a spaceship that propelled him to the safety of Earth. The story parallels that of Moses, whose mother, desperate to save her infant son from the Pharoah's death decree, placed him in a reed basket and floated him down the Nile. Kal-El and Moses were rescued by non-Jews - Moses by Pharoah's daughter and Kal-El by a Kansas farming couple named Kent. For Siegel and Shuster, Kal-El's escape to Earth is the story of the Jews and their exodus from Egypt.

    Temple Israel member Eddy Zeno has built a broad and meaningful collection of Superman memorabilia and artifacts that explore the influence of the Jewish experience on the evolution of Superman. Superman: The Jewish Roots of America's Super Hero, displays part of Eddy Zeno's collection, which invites the viewer to consider the Jewish subtexts at work.

Having opened on September 22, "Superman: The Jewish Roots of America's Super Hero" is currently on display in the Temple Israel Museum until December 31, 2014.

September 23, 2014: Harry Lennix Comments on "Batman v Superman"Print

Harry Lennix Although he couldn't say much, Harry Lennix (who will be returning to play the role of General Swanwick in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice") spoke with MovieFone.com about the upcoming film.

    We have to ask: Can you tell us anything about "Batman v Superman"?

    "Batman v Superman" ... [Laughs] Well, no. Anybody who's a fan of the '86 graphic novel "The Dark Knight Returns," I think will be well pleased by that. This is a historic event. Clearly, Zack Snyder is on the cutting edge of directing movies of this scope and scale. I think you can depend on the acting - you've got Amy Adams, of course. You've got Henry [Cavill]. I don't think there are any surprises with regard to that. What will happen remains to be seen. I'd probably wind up in a box some place.

I'm not sure his comment about "The Dark Knight Returns" will please too many Superman fans.

September 22, 2014: J. Bone's Sun-Friendly Superman CostumePrint

Comic book artist J. Bone (who many may remember worked on the "Super Friends" comic book) has taken to Twitter in response to the idea that since Superman's powers are derived from Earth's sun, then perhans his costume should be designed to allow him to absorb sunlight more directly.

Unfortunately, Bizarro caught wind of the idea too...
