Hot on the heels of the release of the much-anticipated “Man of Steel,” five Superman fans, podcasters and friends sat down for an impromptu discussion and review of the film.
Joining in this special podcast production is an all-star lineup of some of the best and brightest in the world of Superman podcasts, including Michael Bailey (From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast, Views From the Longbox, Superman Homepage), Jon M. Wilson (Golden Age Superman, The New 52 Adventures of Superman), Jeffrey Taylor (From Crisis to Crisis, Movies.com), J. David Weter (Superman Forever Radio, The New 52 Adventures of Superman) and Michael Bradley (The Thrilling Adventures of Superman).
In the episode, the guys talk about every aspect of the film, from story and plot to character and cast, not to mention special effects, the score and a whole lot more! There’s plenty of fanboy geekery, but also honest talk about the movie’s strengths and weaknesses. Few stones are left unturned as the guys give their off-the-cuff, gut reactions to the newest big-screen incarnation of the Last Son of Krypton.
WARNING: The show contains heavy spoilers. Seriously. If you want to remain spoiler-free, hold off on listening until you’ve seen the movie.

I don’t often post this type of thing here. It is so rare, I didn’t even have a proper category for such posts. In fact, this might actually be the first one.
Superman. Incredible Hulk. Ridiculously adorable.
All by artist Adam Archer, who is not someone I am familiar with, but has a handful of credits with DC Comics and other publishers according to Grand Comics Database
According to Archer’s Deviant Art page, the piece was sold as a print at ComicCon a few years back.
I would love to have one. Or, better yet, an entire story — Superman vs. Hulk — done in this style.
C’mon, DC. C’mon, Marvel. Make it happen.

I was guest-host on episode 259 of the Superman Fan Podcast, hosted by Billy Hogan. In the episode, we discuss SUPERMAN #149, featuring one of my all-time favorite Superman stories, Jerry Siegel’s “The Death of Superman,” as well as ACTION COMICS #282.
Billy’s show, which is always excellent, is one of the longest-running Superman podcasts on the Internet and I had a lot of fun being a part of this episode. So be sure to check out it and all the back episodes as well.
