The Superman & Captain Marvel Power Hour Ep 006 - Jerry Ordway Spotlight

Welcome to the 6th episode of the Superman & Captain Marvel Power Hour Podcast, the podcast devoted to exploring the publishing history & adventures of both the Last Son of Krypton and the World’s Mightiest Mortal. I am your host Kyle Benning, and thank you for joining me on this journey to explore the evolution of my 2 favorite DC Characters, Superman & Captain Marvel.

This time out in the 6th Episode of the show, I take brief look at the extraordinary impact Jerry Ordway had as a writer and artist on both Superman and Captain Marvel in the Post-Crisis DC Universe, and culminate my coverage by taking a look at Ordway's Power of Shazam #46 that went on sale December 2, 1998.
