    I've Got A Few Things To Say About SUPERMAN - Episode 15

    I've Got A Few Things To Say About SUPERMAN - Episode 15

    Snark McGill RETURNS for a brand-spanking new installment of "I've Got A Few Things To Say About SUPERMAN!" and a continuing look into the origins of THE PHANTOM ZONE!

    _____________________________________________________________________________________________________

    In this episode (recorded almost a year ago!), we take a look at two more tales that feature into the expanding mythos of THE PHANTOM ZONE!

    We begin with a short, 'lil 9-pager from Superman (volume 1, of course) #150 entitled "The One Minute of Doom" in which the whole Superman Family seems to have come down with a serious case o' the blues all at the same time! What could be the cause of this mysterious moodswing?

    And, then, the feature attraction for this time 'round, "The Babe of Steel" from Action Comics #284, presents NOT a tale of Superman as a tike, but instead some Super-fun (and not a little bit Super-whacky) hijinks of Superman PURPOSELY reducing himself to baby-size! For what possible reason would the Man of Tomorrow put himself through diapers again? Listen in to discover why and hear Snark immediately give an easier alternative solution!

    It's All Good Clean Fun for ALL-AGES! (Promise!)

    Snark McGill RETURNS for yet another brand-spanking new installment of "I've Got A Few Things To Say About SUPERMAN!"
    ___________________________

    Continuing our look into the origins of THE PHANTOM ZONE!

    This time, we're looking at TWO classic tales of the Man of Steel from when he was a lad.

    First up, in Adventure Comics #288, Superboy finds himself trapped, alone, in the Phantom Zone AGAIN thanks to teen delinquent Dev-Em in "The Knave From Krypton"!!

    Knave...?

    We meet our next future Phantom Zone Power-Player in the subsequent issue - Adventure Comics #289! God help our eyes when Pa Kent gains super-powers and immediately decides the thing we all must see is his middle-aged spread squeezed into his teen-aged son's tights. Yeah, it ain't pretty. You've been warned.

    Fun for ALL-AGES! (Promise!)

Worth Waiting For. (Rewritten because I accidentally deleted part of my original review)

I recently discovered this podcast and was hooked from the first episode, leading me to binge-listen to all (so far) 14 episodes over the course of five days. Scott Gardner, aka Snark McGill, discusses his favorite character with clear affection and passion. He "gets" the essential goodness of the Man of Steel, and can still appreciate some of the Silver Age silliness, as well. As Mike Zummor and Bob Fisher have pointed out on Mike's "The Man of Screen" podcast, "Silly doesn't necessarily mean bad." There have been extended periods of hiatus in this podcast, but that didn't affect my listening, because I started listening well after the debut of the 'cast. In any event, I think it would be worth the wait for new episodes.
