Helping people help themselves
The highly anticipated new Superman film, Man of Steel, hits cinemas on 27 June. As hype reaches fever pitch, Anthony Morris delves into the 75-year-old backstory of the character and his creators – a story that encompasses big budgets, reinvention, curses and tragedy.

Rochelle Siemienowicz meets Satellite Boy director Catriona McKenzie; Hannah Brooks talks to Brisbane’s crafty keyboardist, Seja Vogel; Ashleigh Locker learns how myth and memory inform the new book by Neil Gaiman and, in ‘Roving Eye’, photographer Christopher Young finds beauty and bleakness in small-town New Zealand.
