Man Not Superman

Man Not Superman was written by Jonathan Goldstein and read on This American Life for NPR. Arthur Jones illustrated the story with individual Post-It notes. The story is about the guy who dates Lois after she breaks up with Superman. Here's an excerpt:

She missed normal men. Lois wanted someone normal. That’s how I won over a class act like Lois Lane — it was the fact that I was a mere mortal. (...) Although they were broken up, Lois and Superman decided to remain friends, and since they traveled in the same circles, I knew it was only a matter of time before Superman and I would meet, and I knew that when we did, by any possible system of measurement, he would destroy me.

You can read the rest of the story and see the rest of the pictures here.
