[Superman Fan Club]

Welcome to the Superman Fan Club!

Every other week on Wednesdays the Superman-related reading from the DC Universe Digital Comics Library is posted.

Also, the first and third (usually]] Wednesdays of every month we host the Superman Listen Along.

We also have a virtual Clubhouse (a group message) where we discuss “live” any Superman news or other discussions!

Click here to enlist!!! DC Community
(and get an awesome Superman Flair!)

Our initial fun is digging into the Silver Age and Bronze Age wonder of Action Comics and Superman Comics, where so much of the “mythology” of the Superman world was built, along with listening the Superman 1940’s Radio show together!

By joining this exclusive Club, you will be able to get automatic notifications of club activities.

I’m level 3 but I don’t know what the Example Topic Posting dictionary is

@clucktrent You know, come to think of it I don’t see anything to that exact title I’m just using the template that the mods gave us. I think they may be referring to this:
