Episode 36: ALL-STAR SUPERMAN

All-Star-SupermanAll-Star Superman, the comic, teamed an all-star creative team—Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely—with all-star characters—Superman, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, etc.—for a legendary limited run of 12 issues. All-Star Superman, the film, combines this all-star comic with the all-stars of DC Animation—including the voice casting of Andrea Romano and the production of Bruce Timm—resulting in what is arguably one of their best direct-to-DVD efforts. It’s only fitting that the all-stars of podcasting—Dru and Dave… OK, fine, we’re pretty much the bottom of the podcast barrel, but at least we love us some Superman. Listen in as we gush over the god, the myth, the man: All-Star Superman.

    Dru, first thank you for mentioning Supes saving the teenager from jumping, because it is arguably my favourite moment in all of comics (from what is arguably my favourite comic).

    I think you two really nail what makes All-Star Superman – the books and the film – so special.

    Also, I used to love Condorman. I rented that movie on a monthly basis when I was a kid.
