The Thrilling Adventures of SupermanWelcome 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.

The Thrilling Adventures of Superman

Welcome to episode 60 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.

Professor Clarence Cobalt cooks up copious chicanery at his crooked clinic of quackery as Michael looks at the Superman story from ACTION COMICS #26. Superman makes a two-fold return to his social justice roots to deal with a pair of phony doctor — and prevent his victims from enacting their own brand of justice in this classic Golden Age tale.

What were bars created for — except for Superman to bend!

Michael pauses for another Fifth Week installment this episode and rewinds the clock for a look at a story featuring Jor-L. But not the Jor-L we know! This is the story of Jor-L as seen in the pages of a Federal Men story from NEW ADVENTURE COMICS #12 from 1936 — a year and a half prior to the publication of Superman!
