All-Star Superman (2011)!

Download Episode 170!

ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, the animated straight to DVD movie from DC Comics and Warner Premiere, was released on February 22, 2011. Dwayne McDuffie, who wrote the script adaption of Grant Morrison’s and Frank Quitely’s comic book mini-series, unfortunately passed away on the previous day due to some complications from a surgical procedure.

The director was Sam Liu. Some of the major voice cast members were: James Denton as Clark Kent / Superman, Christina Hendricks as Lois Lane, Anthony LaPaglia as Lex Luthor, Ed Asner as Perry White, Matthew Grey Gubler as Jimmy Olsen and Alexis Denisof as Dr. Leo Quintum.

This episode is mostly a spoiler free review of the movie, along with some of my views of its portrayal of the Man of Steel, compared with some other Superman films.

To read my reviews of the original comic book mini-series ALL-STAR SUPERMAN:

With issue #12 of ALL-STAR SUPERMAN finally being published, I review the entire mini-series in this episode.

For an excellent interview with writer Grant Morrison, go to: http://www.comicsbulletin.com/features/112602239631900.htm

CORRECTION: On episode #41, when I discussed SUPERMAN #175, CLARK KENT’S BROTHER, the young Lex Luthor wove himself into the Kent’s lives to find proof theat Clark was Superboy, NOT to murder the Kent’s as I said in that episode.

I called in to episode 509 of FANBOY RADIO, broadcast live on Sunday, April 19, 2009 at 7:00 p. m. The host Scott Hinze interviewed David Weber, the author of my favorite SF novel series Honor Harrington. I called the show around the 45 minute mark and asked about any movie or TV options on the series. To learn more about the Honor Harrington series, you might enjoy this interview with the author. As of this posting this episode was not yet available, but check back in a few days at http://fanboyradio.com , or on Fanboy Radio’s podcast feed on iTunes.

Next episode: The second prequel to our spotlight on the 1990’s SUPERMAN IN EXILE storyline: SUPERMAN GOES GANGBUSTERS!

Download Episode 11!

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.

In this episode, I want to take the time to share my enthusiasm about current superman storylines in the various Superman titles. Two monthly Superman titles that are no longer on my pull list are SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL and SUPERMAN / BATMAN. I’ve had to drop these to add other titles to my reading list and stay on my budget. My favorite Superman titles, in reverse order are:
3. SUPERMAN
2. ACTION COMICS
1. ALL-STAR SUPERMAN.
