SO I LIKE SUPERMAN: A One-Nerd Show



In 1938, at the height of the great depression, the world was introduced to the greatest hero of all time.

In 1982, at the height of Mary Hartney's post-partum depression, that character was introduced to the biggest, gayest nerd of all time.

In So I Like Superman, writer/performer/comic book nerd Michael Hartney tells the secret origin of his lifelong obsession with the Man of Steel, oddly mirroring the plot of Superman: The Movie.

You will believe a nerd can believe a man can fly.
