Download Episode 94!

Jack Liebowitz was born on October 10, 1900 and died on December 11, 2000. His life literally spanned the 20th century. While a lot of Superman fans would want to give him a lump of coal for his birthday if he was still alive, he is an important figure in Superman’s history. Among the many excellent resources about comic book history is MEN OF TOMORROW: GEEKS, GANGSTERS AND THE BIRTH OF THE COMIC BOOK, by Gerard Jones.
