The Fleisher 1940s Superman Cartoons
These fixtures from my youth had really great style. They may look familiar, because their animation inspired the truly wondeful Batman: The Animated Series.
This one was my favorite as a kid

All Star Superman
This short series/graphic novel is a modern adaptation of the golden age Superman. Recommended by our co-host from episode 28, comic creator Miles Greb as a really good way to get into Superman.

Krypton is Imploding
No refuge! Except for all the different refuge options. Harvesting the planet’s core something something oh no it’s collapsing!
Zod is the Good Guy
On Krypton at least. Sure, he sounded a little bit like Hitler, but look what happened when they didn’t listen to him – no more Krypton! And then
Kryptonian Prison Rehab
They seem to put some serious resources into their criminal rehab system that barely gets used. Mundane black hole tech. Dildo butt plug space ships.
The Codex and the Genesis Chamber
Kal first natural birth in centuries. Clearly Kryptonians were multistellar once upon a time. Wonder what happened.
Lessons in how not to handle a kid having a panic attack. Humans actually do pretty well adapting to new sensory input. Clark’s compensation and self control.
Yellow Sun Superpowers
Disagreement over the exact function of Kryptonian power armor and the nature of the yellow sun/superpower relationship.
Russel Crowe hologram simulation. So the Kryptonians reached the singularity basically, but don’t seem to be impressed enough.
Super strength, super neck bones, super despondent military leaders with nothing to protect.
A good death is its own reward
He acquitted himself well
