Information  Our Gods Wear Spandex
Good interview last month on Miguel Conner's Aeon Byte Radio with Chris Knowles, author of the book:

Our Gods Wear Spandex: The Secret History of Comic Book Heroes

Quote:"...The book traces the rise of the comic superheroes and how they relate to several cultural trends in the late 19th century, specifically the occult explosion in Western Europe and America.

Knowles reveals the four basic superhero archetypes--the Messiah, the Golem, the Amazon, and the Brotherhood--and shows how the occult Bohemian underground of the early 20th century provided the inspiration for the modern comic book hero."

WARNING: Miguel always puts about 20 minutes of "ridiculous drivel" at the beginning of his podcasts. Fast-forward to 22:00 where the interview begins...
