INSIDE LOOK: How DC’s SUPERMAN ’78 Comic Stacks Up Against the Movies

An in-depth review with Digging for Kryptonite’s ANTHONY DESIATO…

DC’s Superman ‘78 comic — by Robert Venditti, Wilfredo Torres and Jordie Bellaire — wrapped recently and it certainly was a worthy successor to film director Richard Donner’s vision.

But that’s barely scratching the surface. Over at the podcast Digging for Kryptonite, Superpal Anthony Desiato has kicked off a multipart exploration of the Donnerverse.

And, hey, guess what? Anthony had me on as a guest in the latest episode to discuss the comics series and how it compares to the Superman legend brought to the screen by Donner, Christopher Reeve, Margot Kidder and a couple of unknowns named Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman.

We get into what’s good and what’s not as good, although — SPOILER ALERT — it’s all good.

Up, up and away!
