Welcome to second episode of The Planet Podcast! This month, J is joined by Brian Zino of The Podwits, “Four-Color Fanboys” and “Wah-Hoo! A Sgt. Fury And His Howling Commandos Podcast“-fame, to take a look back at the humble beginnings of The Man Of Steel. The boys peel back the veil of time and look at Action Comics #1 and Superman #1 from the 1930s, as well as a tenth anniversary origin as told in Superman #53. So tear open your shirt, put on your cape, fix your spitcurl, sit back and relax as we take a look back at a simpler time… All those years ago…
Welcome to the very first episode of “The Planet Podcast”! We hope it’s everything we promised and so much more. In our inaugural outing, Dion joins me to discuss The Man of Steel’s first animated outing in 1941’s animated feature “Superman” or “The Mad Scientist” from Fleischer Studios. Thrill to the first adventure of Superman on the big screen with Dion and I as we take a look at how he fared in this first adventure.
And, thanks to the miracles of public domain, feel free to enjoy the animated short in its entirety here on the Planet Podcast website. And don’t be afraid to share your thoughts on both the short and our podcast below. Enjoy!
