Superman Fan Podcast Episode #253: Superman 2012: Year In Review!

Supermanfanpodcast Logo

This is the 5th Year In Review episode for this podcast! Time flies when you’re having fun. 2012 was the first full year of the New 52 DC Universe. This episode will highlight the story lines of first ACTION COMICS then SUPERMAN, beginning with issues 5 through 15 for ACTION, and issue 14 for SUPERMAN, including the 0 issue and both Annuals. (SUPERBOY and SUPERGIRL will not be covered, since I did not subscribe to either title only because of budgetary reasons.) Then I will give my review of both titles and pick my favorite title for 2012.

Coming up in 2013 will be my annual coverage of MegaCon, and for the first time ever I will attend the Superman Celebration! Future episodes will also feature this festival.

Next episode, beginning the podcast’s 6th year: SUPERMAN FAMILY COMIC BOOK COVER DATED NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 1958: SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 5!

In 2 Weeks: SUPERMAN COMIC BOOKS COVER DATED OCTOBER 1961: SUPERMAN 148 & ACTION COMICS 281!

I also briefly discuss my Christmas holiday. May everyone have a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
