CCL Podcast #342 – What The Prose Knows

Collected Comics Library Podcast #342
30.1Mb; 32m 45s

This week on the show I talk about the new comic book history book from Sean Howe, Marvel Comics: The Untold Story and try to compare it to another one due out in April, 2013, The Secret History of Marvel Comics: Jack Kirby and the Moonlighting Artists at Martin Goodman’s Empire. But that’s not all – you may remember Larry Tye’s book Superman: The High-Flying History of America’s Most Enduring Hero that came out earlier this year. I pull all of them in together and talk a bit on why these books are important and how they can be controversial.

Also on the show there are a few loose ends to tie up on a book I touched on last week, Legends of the Dark Knight: Alan Davis. It was recalled and is now expected to be fully restored on on the shelves in February.  Plus I go over the contents of the upcoming Tales of the Batman: Archie Goodwin.

Lastly I talk about why I’m finally reading Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s run on Fantastic Four and the TV show Arrow – could it tie into Man Of Steel and the upcoming Justice League movie?
