Ep 125 - Superman vs Muhammad Ali

This Week: We start our Sports Ball Month with Muhammad Ali vs Superman.  Two legendary figures meet for the first time in this spectacular adventure, as an alien race called the Scrubb demand that Earth's greatest champion battle their world's own greatest fighter. Both Superman and Muhammad Ali step forward -- and to determine who is truly Earth's greatest fighter, Superman temporarily loses his powers and faces Ali in the ring. Ultimately, the duo must work together to defeat the Scrubb, with Ali taking on their champion while Superman battles their space-armada.

Next Week: It’s time for the football with the Southern Bastards. Earl Tubb is an angry old man with a very big stick. Euless Boss is a high school football coach with no more room in his office for trophies and no more room underneath the bleachers for burying bodies. And they're just two of the folks you'll meet in Castor County, Alabama, home of Boss BBQ, the state champion Runnin' Rebs and more bastards than you've ever seen!

Ep 100 - Superman: Secret Identity

 

This Week:  Another fan chose book for March Madness, Superman Secret Identity: In this critically acclaimed work from writer Kurt Busiek (ASTRO CITY) and artist Stuart Immonen (Ultimate X-Men), an alternate “Clark Kent” encounters complications the real Superman never had to handle: a career, a wife, children—a real life. 

 

Despite his iconic name, Clark Kent from Picketsville, Kansas, is just a normal kid whose parents thought they were being clever. He can’t fly, or see through walls, or shrug off speeding bullets—that is, until the day he can. And it’s all much harder than it looks in the comics.

 

Follow Clark across the decades as this man with powers tries to prove he can make the world a safer place without sacrificing everything.

 

Next Week: The Uncanny X-Men. Magneto, master of magnetism. The bitterest of enemies for years. But now they must join forces against a new adversary who threatens them all and the entire world besides in the name of God. In God Loves, Man Kills.

Ep 58 - Death of Superman

This week we're reading the best selling graphic novel of all time (or so the cover says), The Death of Superman.  It’s the comic book event that crossed over to pop culture in a big way.  It also influenced the film Batman v. Superman.

Next week we finish off our month of Gaps in Our knowledge with Fables.  A modern update on fairy tale characters in New York City.

Episode 8 - Red Son

Comrades! Its Episode 8, which according to Adam, makes us a real podcast now! In this episode we discus the 2003 prestige comic from DC Red Son.  Like most episodes there are quite a few tangents and rants. We discuss how Q stole his dads Russian vodka and snuck it into my sisters wedding. We argue over Russian Batman’s fashion choices, and why divorce in comic books is not allowed if it is inconvenient to the story.
