Golden Age Superman
005 Golden Age Superman -- September 1938

Hello, and welcome again to Golden Age Superman.  This week, we're taking a look at Action Comics 5, which is probably my favorite issue we've done so far.  The Superman story is a little shorter, but it's a rather good action-packed adventure with Superman saving a town from a ruptured dam.  Also, the Superman/Clark/Lois triangle officially starts with this issue.  So come check it out!

The show is now being supported by the Superman Homepage, the largest Superman news/information site on the Internet, and if by chance you've never been, I strongly encourage you to check it out.

004 Golden Age Superman -- August 1938

Welcome back to Golden Age Superman.  This episode, in Action Comics 4, Superman decides to play football.  Yes, the champion of the oppressed is stopping thugs while potentially ruining a man's life in the process.  But by chance, it all manages to work out in the end.

003 Golden Age Superman -- July 1938

Welcome again to Golden Age Superman.  This episode, I spend a little time with Action Comics 3, which features Superman in costume for all of one panel.  The story is a pretty simple morality tale, so the episode goes quickly.

002 Golden Age Superman -- June 1938

Welcome back to Golden Age Superman.  This episode, we take a look at Action Comics 2, resolving last week's "Oh, no, falling!" cliffhanger.  It's a more standard episode length until we get to multiple books per episode.

I hope you enjoy the ride.  Golden Age Superman is a proud member of the Superman Podcast Network.  If you wish to send feedback, you may do so in the comments below or via email.  You can also subscribe to the show through iTunes.  Thank you for listening!

001 Golden Age Superman -- May 1938

Welcome and thank you for checking out this new podcast on the Golden Age Superman.  Here, we'll be covering every appearance of the character from Action Comics 1 forward.

In this first episode, I take some time to introduce myself and the purpose of the show, but then we get down to business examining the first issue of Action Comics, focusing on the Superman story, but also taking a brief look at the rest of the contents of the issue.

For now, each episode will simply consist of an Action Comics synopsis and review.  Down the road, when there are multiple issues per month, I'll cover those as well, grouping issues into episodes according to release date.  Most of Superman's titles were not monthly, so cover dates are sometimes hard to classify, so we'll stick to approximate release dates of the issues.

I hope you enjoy the ride.  Golden Age Superman is a proud member of the Superman Podcast Network.  You can follow the show on Facebook or subscribe to it on iTunes.  If you wish to send feedback, you may do so below or via email.  Thank you for listening!
