On Thanksgiving 2011, APSC is thankful for good comics and special guests! This week we’re joined by Peter the Superman Expert as we discuss “Kingdom Come,” by Mark Waid and Alex Ross, widely heralded as one of the best comics of all time. Can you guess which one of us thought it was “just okay”? For more information on past or upcoming episodes, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com.
In Soviet Russia, Superman reads YOU! This week we delve into esleworld superman’s communist utopia with “Superman: Red Son.” Written by Mark Millar and drawn by four artist comrades, this “what if” tweaks just one minor detail of Superman’s origin story: he lands in Soviet Russia instead of post-WWII America. Also, some of the best costume design art we’ve ever seen. For more information on past and upcoming episodes, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com.
Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s our first Superman episode! We start off our discussion of Superman with Gran Morrison and Frank Quitely’s “All-Star Superman.” With its near-future setting and abstract takes on classic characters, this may be the best Superman story ever told.
