Episode 68 — The Man Who Created Superman

Episode 68

You can’t celebrate 75 years of Superman without honoring his creators: Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Over the years, there have been several stories either dedicated to them or create in homage to them. The first story to do this in the Bronze Age was in Action Comics 447, when writer Elliott S! Maggin combined the 2 into one man who creates his own Superman stories. And considering that this is before they finally got their creator credits back in the comic books, this was a pretty big deal.  And in our back-up feature, J David Weter takes us through a book length adventures to celebrate Superboy’s 200th issue, in a story that include the wedding of Bouncing Boy and Duo Damsel? All this and more in yet another thrill-packed episode!
