Critic Reviews

"The long-running adventure serial...was one of the hallmarks of the Golden Age of radio....Superman was never able to fly as high on television as he had for an adventure-filled decade in radio's theater of the imagination." (Anthony Tollin, "Superman on Radio")

A PEACH

FELLOWS AND GIRLS
Cute, with a misleading title. It turns out that the FLYING MONSTER, is a rocket ship. An explosion is heard, but no one even sees the rocket ship and I am not sure that the word MONSTER is even used anywhere in the story.

HISTORY IS JUST A BUNCH OF NEWSPAPERS
It was fun hearing the old theme music , which is the same as was heard on the TV show. Like other reviewers I also like hearing the old commercials, which were all from the same company. If you liked the show, they had a new episode, three days a week.

A Good Listen

Short and to the point. I particularly liked the old commercials contained in the broadcast.

Great Classic Superman Story!

Where does Mystery of the Flying Monster rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It ranks rather high as the quality of the restored production is amazing.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Superman/Clark Kent as the versatility of the actor Bud Collier really shines through.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

The narrator and the other actors all had an air of suspense in their voices, gave the episode real drama and intensity.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I rooted for the little guy in this story Jimmy Olsen.

Any additional comments?

It was a good stand alone episode, A welcome refreshing change form the series stories that I have also heard of this title.

Sound quality not Super...man.

Very old and dated. Audio very tinny.
Would only appeal to fans of the original.
