Golden Age Superman
020 December 1939

Golden Age Superman is back again to finish out not just the year, but the 1930s decade!  AND to complete its celebration of the Ultra Humanite's farewell to Superman's comic stories with Action Comics 23.  For this final installment, I have J David Weter of Superman Forever Radio with me, and we talk about Ultra trying out her new life as a woman and what Superman has to do to stop her.  It's probably the best Ultra-Humanite story we've had, just in time for the character to say good-bye.  Then it's off to the daily and Sunday newspaper strips where war hits Europe and Superman get attacked ... by a BEAR??!!

019 Golden Age Superman -- November 1939

Apologies for the delays, but Golden Age Superman is here once again, and this time I am joined by Superman blogger Stephen Lacey of the World of Superman blog. This week, Superman gets an abusive caregiver arrested for arson and stops some jewel smugglers with the help of Lois Lane in Superman 3.  Then it's Action Comics 20, the second installment in the final trilogy of the Ultra Humanite, where Ultra does some gender bending and comes out of the story with more estrogen and soft skin than he had last issue.  And in the newspaper dailies, Clark goes to work for the DAILY PLANET!!

018 Golden Age Superman -- October 1939

This week, on Golden Age Superman, I am joined by good friend Donovan Morgan Grant of Amazing Spider-Man Classics and Clone Saga Chronicles.  Together, we take a look at Action Comics 19, the first of the final three stories to feature the Ultra-Humanite.  The people of Metropolis are dying from the Purple Plague, and only Superman can stop the one responsible.  Then it's off to the newspaper strips where Superman is victim of female shenanigans on several sides as the royal deathplot continues.

017 Golden Age Superman -- September 1939

Thank you for downloading and listening to Golden Age Superman.  This week, World War II officially gets underway in Europe, and in Action Comics 18, Superman is confronted with the vile evils of blackmail.  He has to help a senator avoid some nefarious schemes so that he can get re-elected, which you'd hope would turn out to be more exciting than it sounds.  You'd hope.  Next week, though, brings us the first installment of the Ultra-Humanite's final trilogy of stories in the Golden Age, so come back for that!
