Golden Age Superman
009 Golden Age Superman -- January 1939

It's happy new year time here at Golden Age Superman as we say good bye to 1938 and hello to 1939, the year that saw Superman's popularity begin to explode.  In addition to the detective antics of Action Comics 9, this episode also covers Superman's premiere in a daily newspaper strip that will run for decades.  Later in the year, we will see an over-sized one-shot special leading off with a Superman story as well as the beginning of a quarterly comic book entirely devoted to his adventures.

008 Golden Age Superman -- December 1938

Golden Age Superman is back, to close out Superman's inaugural year with one of the greatest tales of the early area.  Superman meets some slum kids and helps them out by taking on the slums themselves and forcing the government to provide better housing.  It's one of the most iconic moments of this era, and it's all here at Golden Age Superman, plus a look back at the best and worst of 1938.

007 Golden Age Superman -- November 1938

Thank you for downloading Golden Age Superman.  This episode, I am joined by a special guest.  Hooray!  Say hello to Jeffrey Taylor of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast.  He and I take a look at Action Comics 7, where Superman ... wait for it ... JOINS THE CIRCUS!!  We had a great time together, and the story resonates into recent episodes of his show, with the "Time and Time Again" storyline they recently covered.  Plus my regular coverage of all your favorite backup features like Tex Thomson and Zatara.

In the course of the episode, Jeffrey and I discuss the most valuable comics.  The website I'm using for reference can be found here.

006 Golden Age Superman -- October 1938

Welcome back everyone to Golden Age Superman.  This episode, we are taking a look at Action Comics 6, published in October 1938, which sees Superman face down his own ... personal manager??  It's a cornball story with lots of good bits, especially with the evils of Lois Lane.  Also, my thoughts and feelings on the casting of Henry Cavill as the newest Superman!  So the episode's a bit longer than usual this week.  Hope you enjoy!
