Welcome to the one hundred and forty-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.
REIGN OF THE SUPERMEN…is over.
Yes, faithful listener, the time has come to wrap up the DEATH AND RETURN OF SUPERMAN talk here on FROM CRISIS TO CRISIS. It’s been a crazy nine months but the end is here and this episode serves as an epilogue to the saga as a whole. To add to the weirdness the boys are…well, they aren’t alone because there are two of them but they don’t have a special guest on this time out. So it is up to the two of them to cover ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #505 (where Clark and Lois are reunited and a new villain makes his first appearance) and ACTION COMICS #692 (where Clark Kent returns and we learn exactly why Superman was able to come back from the dead). The boys end the show by talking about what other DC books were on the stands when these issues came out in a segment they like to call ELSEWHERE IN THE DC UNIVERSE.
And that is it for this episode and for the DEATH AND RETURN OF SUPERMAN. Stay tuned, though, because Mike and Jeff are just getting started with this era of Superman! There is so much to look forward to in the weeks and months to come like HUNTER/PREY and the FALL OF/BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS and WORLDS COLLIDE and ZERO HOUR!
It is going to be EPIC.
