Welcome to the one hundred and twenty-sixth 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 and Jeff continue their series on the Death and Return of Superman by discussing the fifth and sixth chapters of Funeral For a Friend. In Adventures of Superman #499 (Part 5 of the storyline) Supergirl discovers that Superman’s body is missing and ends up fighting with a bunch of Underworlders in her search for the Man of Steel’s corpse. Also in that issue Dan Turpin cuts loose. Then in Action Comics #686 the Guardian makes a ghastly discovery at Cadmus while the search for Superman’s body continues. Finally Mike tells you what else was going on in the DCU with the appropriately named Elsewhere in the DCU segment.
