Download the MP3 here

2010 will be a pivotal year in comics, as Disney takes over Marvel, and Time Warner takes more direct control over DC Entertainment. I thought this was a good timeto re-post another “lost episode” from 2005.

Gerard Jones wrote an incredible history of comics formative years, called Men Of Tommorow. The book focused on the creation of Superman, and the creative and business minds behind National comics, All American, and plenty of other publishers of the golden age.

I’ll be posting more of my favorite Books about comics from the decade, but Men Of Tomorrow is absolutleyone of the best.
