Hey, good to see the Homepage is branching out more into video content. I’m more partial to traditional “print” content, but I’ve learned the hard way myself that its time has passed. Good job on the video, but can we all pitch in to get Michael a new mic? 😀 This is based on the poll the page ran a few weeks back, but I’m still kind of bummed out Secret Identity never made it in. I know Busiek originally wrote it as a Superboy Prime story and it’s not really about Superman himself, but it’s a great book in… Read more »

I would LOVE an animated version of “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?”. I would also really like an animated “Superman for All Seasons,” but I don’t know that it has enough action for the creators of these animated films. I agree that it has been waaaaay too long since we got a Superman animated film.

So…the sound. I have a very nice microphone. I am still trying to get to a point where it doesn’t sound like I am in a cavern. If we do another video it will sound better.

Glad people liked the video.

One thing to note is the time period of the stories. The majority are modern, with the exception of the two Moore tales. There a lot of excellent stories from the Silver and Golden Age, but DC made their own history irrelevant with COIE, so those stories remain overlooked.

It’s also a practical issue. The lack of coherent continuity in most of the pre-Crisis stuff and the fact most in this generation of comic book readers (at least the ones in the Internet) grew up during the post-Crisis era. Availability is easier to get around nowadays than it used to be back then and even though DC has been re-issuing older stories collections, they may be able to remedy a lot of it with the rise of digital distribution and they should; because I was born in 1985 and it was hell finding older stories to read up on… Read more »
