Welcome to the first installment in a month long series I'm calling All B.S. and a Little WW: Views on the Trinity!  Why the B.S. and the WW?  Well, you may have heard that there is this little film called Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice coming out on March 25th and I thought it would be a good idea to shamelessly tie into that movie celebrate the three main super-heroes we'll be seeing in that film.  So all of the episodes of Views in March will focus on Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman and in some cases more than one of them.

In this previously mentioned first installment I am doing two things at once; kicking off the series and also doing a little bit of celebrating.  See, this episode goes live on February 29th, 2016.  February 29th just so happens to be my birthday and I will be turning both 40 and 10 this year so I wanted to mark that occasion somehow.  Timing was very much on my side here because there is one story that not only features Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman but also takes place on the 29th of February.  For The Man Who Has Everything first saw print in Superman Annual #11 and has become a classic Superman story that has been reprinted multiple times and adapted into other media twice.  Andy and I spend nearly two hour talking about this stories as well as those adaptations and try not to gush about it too much.  

During the course of the conversation we briefly touch on our feelings about another Alan Moore written Superman story that we, to put it delicately, don't like all that much.  If you want to hear me talk about Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow with Trentus Magnus click on this link and scroll down to episode 26 of Trentus Magnus Punches Reality.  If you want to hear Andy talk about that story with his son Micheal click on this link and scroll down to episode 250 of Hey Kids Comics.  

Be sure to check out Andy's other shows.  New episodes, of Hey Kids Comics are coming out sporadically so be sure to keep a look out for those.  He also hosts The Palace of Glittering Delights where he talks about whatever he wants to.  Then there's The Fantasticast, which is a great Fantastic Four podcast that Andy does with Stephen Lacey.  Also check out Listen to the Prophets: A Deep Space Nine Podcast that Andy hosts with Paul Spataro.  Finally keep a look out for the Firefly show that should launch any day now. 

Next Time: All B.S. and a Little WW: Views on the Trinity continues and a certain Amazonian princess takes center stage as special guest Rebecca Johnson and I talk about the first seven issues of the George Perez run of Wonder Woman
