Because of holiday family celebrations and work schedules, there was little time to prepare of post the final two scheduled episodes of 2013. So I decided to do this episode, scheduled to be the final one of 2013, to begin 2014, followed by the next regularly scheduled silver age Superman story episode.

To review the Man of Steel in comic books, I cover:

– SUPERMAN 15 – 25 and SUPERMAN ANNUAL 2. (SUPERMAN 26 was released on Tuesday, December 31, 2013, but I was not able to go to my local comic book shop, Acme Superstore, until today, Saturday, January 4, 2014.

– ACTION COMICS 16 – 26 and ACTION COMICS ANNUAL 2.

– SUPERMAN UNCHAINED 1 – 4. (SUPERMAN UNCHAINED 5 was published on the same day as SUPERMAN 26, but I was unable to go to my local comic book shop before the end of the year.

I also briefly discuss my trip to the Superman Celebration in Metropolis, Illinois, which I covered in the multi-part Episode 271Part IPart IIPart IIIPart IVPart V & Part VI. Next I highlight my thoughts on the film MAN OF STEEL, which premiered the week after the Superman Celebration, and I originally reviewed in Episode 272.

I also highlight some of my pop culture Christmas gifts, as well as the pop culture Christmas gifts I bought for my family.

Next episode, I resume my regularly scheduled trip through the time barrier to explore the silver age adventures of Superman with the: SUPERMAN COMIC BOOK COVER DATED NOVEMBER 1962 PART I: SUPERMAN 157, which was originally scheduled to be released on Christmas week 2013.

The following week: SUPERMAN COMIC BOOK COVER DATED NOVEMBER 1962 PART II; ACTION COMICS 294!

Download Episode #272!

In this episode I review the movie MAN OF STEEL, which, at the time of this recording, I’ve only seen once. My wife and I attended the 10:45 a. m. showing of the film at the AMC 12 Theater complex at the Lake Square Mall in Leesburg, Florida, on Saturday, June 15, 2013 during the film’s opening weekend.

While I don’t get into a detailed discussion of the plot, I do talk about specific plot points and character developments, so this episode comes with a SPOILER ALERT. If you haven’t seen MAN OF STEEL when you are listening to this episode, you may want to wait until after you’ve seen the film before you listen to my review.

With the next episode, we will return to our regularly scheduled journey through the time barrier to explore the silver age adventures of Superman with: SUPERMAN FAMILY COMIC BOOKS COVER DATED APRIL 1959: SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 8 & SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 36!

The following week: SUPERMAN COMIC BOOKS COVER DATED APRIL 1962: SUPERMAN 152 & ACTION COMICS 287!
