While looking at the web site http://www.supermanhomepage.com/news.php, on the left hand side of the site was a list of dates special to Superman’s history for this particular month. One of them was June 10, 1986. That was the date that MAN OF STEEL #1, John Byrne’s mini-series that began the relaunch of Superman, was first published. I thought devoting an episode to the differences between the two versions of Superman wold be a good topic. I also plug the video podcast SPEEDING BULLETINS, where the hosts went to the resent 30th SUPERMAN CELEBRATION at Metropolis, Illinois. They also host the podcast SUPERMAN HOMEPAGE: RADIO K-A-L.

When ACTION COMICS #866, BRAINIAC: Part 1, was published on Wednesday, June 11, 2008, I thought it would be the perfect time to share about the other major Superman villain. If you would like to explore the character of Brainiac for yourself, you should enjoy the following reprint collections:
SUPERMAN IN THE FIFTIES
SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF TOMORROW VOL. I
SUPERMAN: THE BOTTLE CITY OF KANDOR
SHOWCASE PRESENTS:SUPERMAN VOL. I.

Jerry Siegel co-created several characters that were originally drawn by comic book artists other than Joe Shuster. They were: THE SPECTRE with Bernard Bailey, THE STAR SPANGLED KID with Hal Sherman, RED, WHITE & BLUE with William Smith, ROBOTMAN with Leo Nowak and Paul Cassidy from his Cleveland Studio.
