Welcome to the one hundred and sixteenth episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.
Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.
Remember last week when w said there would be a special guest for this week’s episode? Well, that didn’t pan out for scheduling reasons. So we’re sorry that Charlie Niemeyer could not make it this time out but he will most certainly return as a guest on the show in the future.
This week Mike and Jeff conclude their look at the Superman books with an October 1992 cover date with two regular issues and a special. In Adventures of Superman #495 the Forever People believe that Darkseid has kidnapped the daughter of Big Bear and Beautiful Dreamer and they need Superman’s help to get her back. Then over in Action Comics #682 the Man of Steel has to fight a new armored villain named Hi-Tech. Finally, comic coverage wise, the boys discuss Superman Special #1 by Walt Simonson, which is a story that was supposed to be published two years earlier but finally saw the light of day during this cover month. The show wraps with a look at what else was going on in the DCU when these books were on the stands including Superman’s appearance in Guy Gardner #1.
