SUPERMAN: THE HIGH FLYING HISTORY OF AMERICA'S MOST ENDURING HERO, written by Larry Tye, was published by Random House on June 12, 2012. I received this book as a Christmas present and recently finished reading it. In this episode I review this important history of my favorite comic book character, The Man of Steel.
After this review, I also discuss my feelings about the recent court ruling on the lawsuit between the Siegel heirs vs. DC Comics.
Larry Tye was interviewed on RADIO K.A.L. LIVE on June 25, 2012.
Attorney and comic book reader Jeff Trexler explained the court ruling on RADIO KAL LIVE on January 14, 2013, and earlier discussed the complicated issues involving Superman's copyright on 2 episodes, March 19, 2012 and March 26, 2012.
