After a week off of our weekly releases, we are back to dive into the books that hit in July. This episode is the first half of those, covering the following stories from Action Comics 11 and Superboy 11.
“Superman’s New Secret Identity” — Well, it’s all in the name, isn’t it? Clark Kent is dead, and Superman has found a new way to spend his hours out of costume. Meanwhile, the forgotten Superman returns and is ready to take over the world with the help of a six-year-old in pigtails. What ever can Superman do to stop him?
“Clothes Encounter” — We learn a bit more about how Superman got all those S-shield T-shirts, or do we? We look at another of Sholly Fisch’s vignettes that have helped these issues to leave an emotional impact.
“Brothers-in-Harm!” — Kon and Miguel have to take care of the city’s detritus, but what’s Superboy doing with all that cash? And what will his gay friend do to help him with girl problems?
We also have your latest heroine fix (note the “E”) in Worlds’ Finest 3, so come give a listen!
Thanks so much for listening. We do hope you enjoy the show, “we” being Jon M. Wilson from Golden Age Superman and J. David Weter of PADSmash!: An Incredible Hulk Podcast and Green Lantern’s Light.
