On Nov. 7, 2023 “Strange and Unsung All-Stars of the DC Multiverse: A Visual Encyclopedia” will be released and I can’t wait to add it to my Shelves of Steel.
In this spooky episode, Alan and Rob discuss all things Sam Hayne or Oíche Shamhna (for those who aren’t fans of John Carpenter’s butchering of the Irish language!)
Host Anthony Desiato and guest Case Aiken (Men of Steel podcast) dig into DC Comics’ post-“Dark Crisis” publishing initiative, “Dawn of DC,” as it relates to the Superman family of titles: “Action Comics” by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Rafa Sandoval (“Speeding Bullets” from no.1051-1056), “Superman” by Joshua Williamson and Jamal Campbell (“Supercorp” from no.1-5), and the “Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent” miniseries by Tom Taylor and Clayton Henry.
Celebrating 35 years of the “Superboy” series, Alan and Rob are joined by series star Gerard Christopher, to talk all about the oft-forgotten Superman series.
Host Anthony Desiato and guest Jermaine Exum (aka “Lord Retail” of Acme Comics) dig into the most recent—but surely not last—Crisis event: “Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths” by Joshua Williamson and Daniel Sampere, featuring the return of Pariah and the restoration of the original Pre-Crisis multiverse.
Connor-El has let Rey-Zod out of the Phantom Zone to discuss the stand alone “Action Comics” no.809 where Clark finds himself having to solve a cruise ship murder mystery. The prime suspect? Clark Kent!
Superman is attacked by the grim and gritty alternate future version of Tim Drake; plus I wrap up the overly caffeinated “Dark Nights: Metal” series; plus Clark and Bruce have feelings about whether or not they’re friends.
