Golden Age Superman
013 Golden Age Superman -- May 1939

This is it.  This is the big one.  The premiere of Superman issue #1.  And to commemorate the event, I have brought together some of the best in Superman podcasting today -- Michael Bailey and Jeffrey Taylor of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast, Charlie Niemeyer from Superman in the Bronze Age, and Kaman Stowell of the Superman Video Podcast.  Together, we first take a look at Action Comics 13, where a protection racket turns out rather randomly to be the sinister machination of Superman's first recurring villain -- the Ultra-Humanite.  Then we look at the new material in Superman 1, including the hero's origin, and reminisce on how this book has affected all our lives.  And we can't leave out the Action Comics backup features or the newspaper strips.  So come join the party!

012 Golden Age Superman -- April 1939

Welcome to a new era in Golden Age Superman, as I say goodbye to the days where Superman was only ever published in one book.  This week, I'll be taking a look at Action Comics 12, where Superman declares war on reckless drivers, but is a bit reckless himself in the process.  Then it's a trip to the World's Fair with the Man of Tomorrow in New York World's Fair Comics.  With more books come more minutes spent talking about them, so this episode is a bit longer than they have usually been, but that's going to be more common as we move forward.  So come along into this new chapter in the life of the Man of Steel!

010 Golden Age Superman -- February 1939

How do you feel about chain gangs? Superman hates them. But he doesn't mind using the pain of prisoners along the way to taking one down.  It's Action Comics 10 on this episode of Golden Age Superman, and Superman decides to expose the corruptions within the prison labor system.  Problem is, he chooses one of the worst ways possible to do it.  Come check it out!
