New Podcast Musical MICRO-FACE Announced on NPR's Planet Money!
April 30, 2021
NPR podcast Planet Money has announced the development of a new superhero podcast musical based on their upcoming comic book character Micro-Face, a superhero with a variety of audio powers, to be written by composer/lyricist/librettist Kit Goldstein Grant. A livestream special podcast of the short musical is planned following the comic book’s release.
Planet Money hosts Kenny Malone and Robert Smith have revived the 1940s superhero Micro-Face, originally created by Allen Ulmer. In a series of episodes Planet Money has been exploring the public domain and the world of licensing and derivative works, and their own process in creating a new “superhero empire.” A comic book of their new version of Micro-Face is currently in development, with a story by Alex Segura, cover art by Jerry Ordway, lettering by Taylor Esposito, coloring by Ellie Wright, and, of course, schtick by Planet Money. The comic book is currently available for presale on NPR’s website at npr.org/micro-face.
To listen to the full Micro-Face podcast series and follow the progress of the musical, visit: npr.org/superhero.
