Welcome to episode 75 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.
This episode, Michael speaks with Marc Tyler Nobleman, author of “Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman,” an all-ages picture book biography of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. In the interview, Marc discusses his book, its development, why Siegel’s and Shuster’s story is worthy of a book and much more. We also discuss Marc’s upcoming book on Batman co-creator Bill Finger and his research and interviews with some of pop culture and super-hero entertainment’s lost stars.
Be sure to not miss Noblemania, Marc Tyler Nobleman’s official blog, for behind-the-scenes research, the Super ’70s and ’80s series, as well as information on his upcoming book on Batman co-creator Bill Finger! Once more, a huge thank you to Mr. Nobleman for coming on the show.
