    "Not as good"

    I've collected a lot of the vintage Superman radio series and this doesn't come close.
    Great sound and special effects and vocals.
    Terrible writing. The illusion is destroyed by the premise of Lois Lane as Superman's legal representative for various crimes.
    Terribly disappointed.

    "Marginal Listening Experience, Poor Acting"
    What would have made Superman on Trial better?

    Better voices


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dirk Maggs again?

    Enjoyed the Batman piece.


    How could the performance have been better?

    All of the character actors seem over rehearsed.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Probably the testimonies supporting comic book literature which I am a fan of.


    Any additional comments?

    None that I can think of. . .

    "Original or self-indulgent?"

    Having purchased some of the other Superman titles in the past, I looked forward to another quality audio production. Previous titles have conjured up all the wonder of Superman and evoked a true sense of time and place.

    However, this production is so different from what I was expecting that, after some time, I felt it to be self-indulgent. Yes, Superman is on trial, but in a place where our universe blends with his. By the time the editor of DC Comics was called to the stand they'd lost me.
