Glen Weldon (author, blogger, podcaster) slums it with stevieD to talk about his book Superman: The Unauthorized Biography. The two queens dish about everything from super-hypnosis to Lois’ favorite pill-box hat!
And here, you will find the Tumblr Glen mentioned as a companion to the book.
I’m queer for Superman: Earth One, because I love a good reimaging of an iconic character…and probably why I’ll buy the next Madonna album. Superman: Earth One is important because it wasn’t too long ago that our collective world was rocked by the DCnU announcement. DC proclaimed it was relaunching, I mean rebooting, I mean who the fuck cares; its entire comic book line. This is obviously not the first time something like this has been done, but it might be the first time there seems to be an all out commitment to begin a new era of DC Comics. The driving force is not really creative, but financial, because the comic industry is not growing even with the success of comic based films. Obviously, it has made some people unhappy, those old comic queens, and some of us remain either optimistic or just…like whatever it will all be redone in two years.
CBQ is invaded by the Merboy of Cardiff!!
In this episode, stevieD sits down with CBQ’s own Merboy! The two discuss how Merboy discovered comics as a young tadpole and how his mother would have rather he read comics about a dead kid than a grown man in a bat costume. Then they move on to discuss a favorite of both queers, Superman: Secret Identity by Kurt Busiek and Stuart Immonen. If you haven’t read the book (and we can’t understand why you haven’t) you might want to do that before listening to these boys go on and spoil their favorite bits.
