I've just about finished Glen Weldon's new book Superman: An Unauthorized Biography, and can recommend it. You can listen to him on NPR last week -

Bellantoni, Christina.  2013.
How Superman Explains America.
National Public Radio and WAMU's Kojo Nnamdi Show (July 9).

and the pictures are from his talk at Politics and Prose yesterday, which was fun. When the bookstore posts the video they shot, I'll add link to it.

Weldon likes Langridge and Samnee's Thor
