A must listen for any Superman fan

If you like Superman, you should be listening to this podcast. Who doesn’t want to hear someone talk about something they enjoy with enthusiasm?

I couldn’t wait for this show, and it delivers.

I’ve been a lifelong Superman fan, and as a fan of Anthony’s other podcast (and documentary), I couldn’t wait for this to drop. It’s a great dive into what makes the character great, and what ultimately inspired me to become a comic artist.

Great show, can’t wait for more episodes!

A gift to all Superman fans

I found Anthony on accident a few weeks ago, his 80th anniversary article about Superman. I became a Superman fan in 1989 at age 14, John Byrne’s Man of Steel tpb. This was like listening to 2 of my friends discussing my favorite character, two friends who understood my favorite character. Love it. I’m hooked. So glad I didn’t have to wait until 2021. Bring on the next episode.
