Welcome to the one hundred and twenty-fifth 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.
This week Mike (who is getting over a cold, which is why he sounds funky) and Jeff continue their coverage of the Death and Return of Superman with the third and fourth chapters of Funeral For a Friend. In Superman: The Man of Steel #20 the supporting cast, the heroes of the DC Universe and even Bill Clinton gather in Metropolis for Superman’s funeral as the Kents have their own private service in Smallville. Then in Superman #76 a group of heroes gather to continue Superman’s tradition of answering his mail on Christmas Eve. Plus Mitchell Anderson visits Metropolis and Lois, Jonathan, Martha and Lana Lang get together to have a very important discussion. Mixed in is the usual coverage of the two novelizations and the BBC audio drama. Plus, Mike complains some more about the Death and Return of Superman omnibus. Finally Jeffrey tells you what was going on in the real world during the Meanwhile, At The Daily Planet segment.
