The New 52 Crew is back once again to look at the latest and greatest adventures of the New 52 Superman. This time out, it's Action Comics 8, where Grant Morrison wraps up his first major epic in the early life of Superman with a 30-page adventure story that ... well, if I told you how we felt about it, you wouldn't listen to the episode, would you?
We also answer your emails and have a few things to say about some of the upcoming future creators on the books. And if you listen to the end, you might even hear some thoughts on a certain other S-named superhero who might have had a movie recently.
Thanks so much for listening. We do hope you enjoy the show, "we" being Jon M. Wilson from Golden Age Superman and J. David Weter of PADSmash!: An Incredible Hulk Podcast and Green Lantern's Light. If you have thoughts on the books we cover or on our comments regarding them, please share them by writing an email or comment below.
Next episode due August 15
Wow, you guys need to seriosly lighten up about creators doing things you don't like. First, Geoff Johns had the audacity to try a different angle with Shazam, and now DC gives a backup story to someone who took the piss out of the Death and Return storyline. You'd think with your vitriolic reactions to these developments, that the creators had come to your house and smeared their Superman/Shazam hatin' feces all over your back issues. I honestly don't see the point of spewing bile and hatred when someone does something that offends your view of comic book stories you enjoyed. I get criticism, and I enjoy listening to it on podcasts, but can you two honestly look back on your comments and stand by them as valid criticism? I think I'm done listening your podcast, and I wish you the best, but I'm afraid I like my Superman entertainment a little more entertaining. And by the way, thanks for cluing me into Max Landis' monologue. I was unaware of it before, and rather enjoyed it. Yeah, it was amatuerish and juvenile in spots, but funny and spot on in others. I tend to think that anyone that takes the time to produce a work like this has to have some respect for the character, otherwise why bother. At the end of the day, it's more entertaining then telling creators doing thins you don't agree with to "fuck off."
