New 52 Adventures of Superman

New 52 09 Action Comics 5

It begins — again!  The New 52 Adventures gang is here to discuss the new origin of Superman as presented in Action Comics 5, and this time they bring a friend along in the person of Michael Bailey of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast, Tales of the Justice Society of America, and Radio KAL Live!, as well as staff writer at the Superman Homepage!

“Rocket Song” — It may be the seventeenth origin that Superman has gotten in the last year and a half (or something like that), but we loved it anyway.  The question is, why did it have to happen smack in the middle of another story?  We have the hash and dash on all that as well as some comparisons with previous versions of the.

“Baby Steps” — Wow, did this story catch us all by surprise, and it gives a chance for four men to share their feelings.  But don’t let that frighten you!

You’ll also get Michael Bailey’s opinions on the New 52 relaunch as a whole and the other Superman books in particular, with some solid appreciation of Serinda Swan mixed in for good measure.  Come give it a listen!

Thanks so much for listening. We do hope you enjoy the show, “we” being Jon M. Wilson from Golden Age Superman, J. David Weter of PADSmash!: An Incredible Hulk Podcast and Green Lantern’s Light, as well as Michael Kaiser from the newly revived Legends of the Batman.  If you have thoughts on the books we cover or on our comments regarding them, please share them by writing an email or comment below.
