Host Anthony Desiato and guest Bill Maio dig into comic book creator Frank Miller's interpretation of Superman across his Dark Knight Universe, with a specific focus on SUPERMAN: YEAR ONE (drawn by John Romita Jr.) and DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE (co-written by Brian Azzarello and drawn by Andy Kubert). This is a sequel to Anthony and Bill's recent "Superman as goverment stooge" episode, which considered Superman in the context of DARK KNIGHT RETURNS and DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN.

BONUS: Includes a special 15-minute preview of the DIGGING FOR JUSTICE: A DC FAN JOURNEY, Anthony's Patreon-exclusive podcast, featuring a discussion of the 1989 BATMAN film with Fat Moose Comics owner Shawn Hendricks.

Digging for Kryptonite is a Flat Squirrel Production. Key art by Gregg Schigiel and theme music by Basic Printer.
