Welcome to the one hundred and eighteenth 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.
Mike and Jeffrey close out the Superman books with a November 1992 cover date this week and, in a way, they also close out an era of this show. Starting next week the boys will begin their coverage of the epic Death and Return of Superman trilogy. In many ways every episode of From Crisis to Crisis leading up to this storyline was an extended prologue. Sure the guys have covered some of the big stories of the Post Crisis era but none of them had as much of an impact on the character’s history as when Superman died.
But all of that will have to wait one more week.
For now there are three books to cover starting with Adventures of Superman #496 where a certain imp from the Fifth Dimension returns and has a new trick up his sleeve in terms of messing with Superman. Then in Action Comics #683 Superman faces off against a dangerous new vigilante named The Jackal. The comic coverage ends with Justice League America #68 where Superman and the League have to deal with a real estate dispute. Finally Mike tells everyone what other DC comics were coming out this cover month!
