Since issue 10 of ALL-STAR SUPERMAN was published this week, I wanted to feature the ten issues published so far. I share my opinions about why I feel these ten issues are some of the best Superman stories ever published. If you would like to read these issues before listening to this episode, pick up the collected edition, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN VOL. I. It collects issues 1-6, and you might be able to get the rest at your local comic book shop, in their back issue boxes, or internet vendor.

Since this is the 70th anniversary of Superman’s publication, I thought I would look at a book that was published on a previous big anniversary of Superman, his 50th, in 1988. Published by Collier Books, it looks at various aspects of Superman’s history, in a series of essays written by many people. They look at Superman’s history in comics, movies and television, and his influence on pop culture.

Don’t forget to look for BOYS OF STEEL: THE CREATORS OF SUPERMAN, written by Marc Tyler Nobleman and illustrated by Ross Macdonald. The book will come out on August 26, 2008. Check out their web sites: http://www.noblemania.blogspot.com, http://www.mtncartoons.com and http://www.ross-macdonald.com. You can pre-order this book from Amazon.com.
