First edition of Planet Money’s Mysterious Micro-Face #1.
Planet Money went searching through thousands of public domain characters and fell in love with the 1940s sonic avenger Micro-Face. He was everything a podcast could have hoped for: super-sensitive hearing, photoelectric vision, and the kicker — a microphone strapped to his face.
Everyone owns the old version of Micro-Face. But today, for the first time, Planet Money is announcing a new version that we can truly (and legally) call our own. Sam Salazar is a talented young business radio reporter — yes there will be economics learning — who is chasing the story of a lifetime. In the process, he discovers his grandfather had a secret life as a Golden Age superhero. Join Sam as he uncovers his family history, digs into a complicated business plot about private equity and takes up the mantle of his grandfather, the original Micro-Face.
