Welcome to episode 82 of The Thrilling Adventures of Superman. The show’s mission is to explore the history and development of the Superman in his formative years by chronicling the Man of Steel’s Golden Age adventures in comics, radio and film.
We return to the Man of Steel’s audio adventures this episode for a look at the 17th storyline from the Superman radio serial. After wrapping up the dangling plot elements from last storyline, Clark Kent, Jimmy Olsen and, of course, Superman, set sail into a brand new adventure as a wayward turtle leads them to investigate “The Curse of Dead Man’s Island!”
“Aw, please take me along! Please, Mr. Kent!”
The Superman radio show, obviously, doesn’t allow for scans of images from the story. However, here is a look at a couple spot illustrations, that accompanied the text adaptation of the story in the October 1941 issue of Radio and Television Mirror, as well as a look at that issue’s cover. Art was likely done by members of the Shuster shop. Who penned the adaptations themselves, however, is not known.
