Welcome everyone to the Nexus of All Realities – A Man-Thing podcast!
Are you ready for parody, satire, intriguing ideas that culminate in a punch up with a gloopy swamp monster in a small Florida town? Then this is the issue for you.
Today’s episode is Adventure Into Fear #17, It Came Out of the Sky!
In this issue Steve Gerber tries out a really fascinating idea…what if Superman was a fully grown man-baby with the mind of a child but all the super powers of an adult? (An adult superhero that is). This is essentially a grand experiment in Marvel Two-in-One form. And a swamp monster of course. It is the Bronze Age in all its glory.
Also, I talk briefly about Superman and his all-consuming presence in comics and the way he influences every superhero comic ever written or will be written. Also, I talk about Man-Thing #1 the start of the R. L. Stine run. Did I like it? Well, let me just say…it gives me goosebumps.
So give a listen won’t you? And if you are so inclined why not leave a review and/or leave a comment? It’s be cool if you did.
