Superman Fan Podcast

Episode #211!

In the fourth annual Year In Review episode, we say Goodbye to the old Superman and say Hello to the New 52 Man of Steel.

I review the final issues of the SUPERMAN: GROUNDED storyline in 2011 in SUPERMAN 707 – 714, the Lex Luthor BLACK RING story in ACTION COMICS 897 – 900,as well as the REIGN OF THE DOOMSDAYS story in ACTION COMICS 900 – 904.

Also reviewed in this episode are the Superman specials: SUPERMAN 80 PG. GIANT, JIMMY OLSEN one shot, SUPERMAN BEYOND 0 and FLASHPOINT: PROJECT SUPERMAN 1 – 3.

Bringing in the new Superman are ACTION COMICS 1 – 4 and SUPERMAN 1 – 3 (issue 4 was published on Wednesday, December 28, 2011, and I was not able to purchase that issue in time for this episode).

I express my views about how the old Superman continuity ended, and my thoughts about the early issues of the New Superman.
