It's been a while, hasn't it? Did you miss me? Well, summer is here, school's out, and that means time for more podcasts! In this episode, I am joined by Charlie Niemeyer once again to look at Action Comics 31. Someone has put the town of Brentville to sleep, and it's up to Superman to find out who and how and to put a stop to it! Jack Burnley brings his beautiful art to the story, and it's a pretty darn good one. Then in the daily newspaper strips, Lois has become a pawn of "the Master," but who is the Master and what is he trying to accomplish by getting Lois Lane fired from the Daily Planet? Meanwhile, on Sundays, everything comes to a head in the exploration of Lois Lane's inherited property. And finally, the Yellow Mask returns to menace the free world on the Superman radio show. Lots of good stuff is going on, and you're invited to join in the fun!

Thanks for another great show. I bought the Chronicles #4 and #5 to better appreciate the discussion. That Superman story is just excellent - the Professor reminded me, visually, of Emil Hamilton from the post-Crisis years. Off now to have some soup - my soup is SO much better than yours!
