Digging for Kryptonite — The Superman of Frank Miller (PLUS: Digging for Justice Preview)

Host Anthony Desiato and guest Bill Maio dig into comic book creator Frank Miller’s interpretation of Superman across his Dark Knight Universe, with a specific focus on “Superman: Year One” (drawn by John Romita Jr.) and “Dark Knight III: The Master Race” (co-written by Brian Azzarello and drawn by Andy Kubert).

This is a sequel to Anthony and Bill’s recent “Superman as government stooge” episode, which considered Superman in the context of “Dark Knight Returns” and “Dark Knight Strikes Again.”


BONUS: Includes a special 15-minute preview of the DIGGING FOR JUSTICE: A DC FAN JOURNEY, Anthony’s Patreon-exclusive podcast, featuring a discussion of the 1989 BATMAN film with Fat Moose Comics owner Shawn Hendricks.
