|What: Max Fleischer's Superman |
When: April 7th
Price: Retail $26.99, Our: 20.99
**Warner** has announced an April 7th release date for Max Fleischer's Superman. The 2-disc set will retail for $26.99, but is available at Classicflix.com for only $20.99.
According to Jerry Beck at Cartoon Brew the new transfers are "truly breaktaking," because they were done with Warner and DC Comics own master negatives. He follows with advice to dump old versions of Fleisher's Superman.
We normally do remove older, inferior releases of the same material to reduce confusion on which version is superior, however, in this case, we'll keep on VCI's 2006 release because it has a few bonus features not contained in this new set, and because VCI's lower price may be more appealing to those not overly concerned with video quality.
Includes all 17 Max Fleischer Cartoons with two bonus featurettes.
