Superman Fan Podcast Episode #311: Superman 2014: Year In Review!

Supermanfanpodcast Logo


With the end of the year, it’s time once again to take a break from the silver age adventures of Superman for the annual year in review episode of current Superman comic books. In this episode I review the issues 27 – 36 of the Superman titles ACTION COMICS and SUPERMAN, (I have not yet received issue 37 of either title yet from DCBS.), and ACTION COMICS ANNUAL 3. I also review issues 5 – 8 of SUPERMAN UNCHAINED (not having received the series’ final issue 9 from my comic book service). The final two comic book issues reviewed are FUTURE’S END tie-ins of ACTION COMICS FUTURE’S END 1 and SUPERMAN FUTURE’S END 1.

In 2015 we begin the year looking at the Superman Family comic books cover dated October 1960, Part I featuring SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 20, and Part II highlighting SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 48.

The third week of the year will spotlight the Superman comic book cover dated September 1963: ACTION COMICS 304.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Season, and may you have a Happy and Prosperous 2015!

Legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle suffered a stroke during the holiday season and is paralyzed on his left side, and he is a left handed artist. As a freelancer he does not have insurance, but a fund has been established to help defray the costs of his medical treatment and rehabilitation. Please contribute if you can.

View from the Gutters #99 — Lazarus

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Lazarus, by Greg Rucka, Santiago Arcas, and Michael Lark. Set in a dystopian future in which the Earth is ruled by corporate families who via for control while exploiting the “waste”, the unwashed masses who are neither family nor those lucky enough to have curried a family’s favor.

Each family has one Lazarus: a nigh-unkillable super-soldier/bodyguard who is tasked with protecting the family and promoting their interests. The series follows Forever Carlyle, the Lazarus of the Carlyle family, as she deals with family infighting, assassination attempts, and the ever-present threat of war with the other families.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated Atomic Robo, Flashpoint, She-Hulk, Wolverine: Origin, and The Bounce for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Flashpoint.

Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Tobiah Panshin, Kayleigh Fleeman, Brant Gillihan-Eddy, and Cade Reynolds.

The Mean Geek- Episode #191-“And By Dumb Book, I Just Mean Book”


We complain about post Crisis-Pre52 backtracking. I hate it. We move on to stuff we DO dig though with October’s Indies. GRENDEL SHADOW 2 is just such a great book. MEND OF WRATH 1 is unsentimental and is close to disturbing as well. STARLIGHT 6 ends just as expected, satisfying and a nice departure from Millars’ unrelenting gross brutality. WAR STORIES 1 and 2 please us with Enni’s return to non grossing out stuff. HOLMES HOUDINI 1 just pleases us RAGNAROK 2 took long enough everyone dies, and a bargain is struck with a God. BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA 5 is just hilarious and fun with THE HELL OF THOSE KILLED BY IDIOTS. GROO VS CONAN 4 mercifully ends WYTCHES 1 works a lot better than Snyders Batman stuff, honestly, seriously. SHADOW: MIDNIGHT IN MOSCOW 5 adds to the convolution and confusion. TREES 6 ends our association with the book, as it just ain’t good scifi. VEIL 5 Veil’s free, and one of Rucka’s few boring books. UBER 18 19 Ubers now impersonate people,nuke programs sabotaged, Brothers reunite. CALIBAN 7 finally mercifully ends, Alien style. ATOMIC ROBO KNIGHTS OF THE GOLDEN CIRCLE 5 has Robo pulling a ST:NG move. SAGA 24 baby harp seals with axes. you don’t need more. REVIVAL 24 completes the show with zombie deer, crucifixions, bomb building.
