FCTC EPISODE 163: MARCH 1994 PART 2

FCTC 2013 LogoFCTC_Ep_163_LargeEpisode 163: March 1994 Part 2

Welcome to the one hundred and sixty-third 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.

The coverage of the March 1994 cover dated books continues as does Bizarro’s World! In a slightly shorter than normal episode Mike and Jeff cover Adventures of Superman #510 and Action Comics #697 and…well, that’s pretty much it. They had originally planned on covering Superman: Under A Yellow Sun as well but when push came to shove and Mike actually started writing out the synopsis and notes it became apparent that if the boys covered everything they wanted to originally cover in this episode it would probably be well over two hours long. So to keep things simple they are talking about parts 2 and 3 of Bizarro’s World and ending things there. Hear Mike sing (badly) the Bizarro version of Can You Read My Mind! Listen to a history of sexual harassment! Thrill to a reference to a certain film about Superman without ever actually saying the name of that film! Plus Mike and Jeff look at the ads in the two books they covered this time out.

During the episode Mike mentioned that a site gave this show a very nice shout out.  That site was Steve’s Comics Blog and on the November 29, 2013 entry Steve discussed Superman: Exile and wrote some nice things about FCTC.  You can read that post by following this link.

    Hi,
    I finished the latest FCTC and it was great as usual but it seems you missed some interesting tidbits as follows:
    1) Alan D. Gunhouse of McComb, OH was the Baldy winner for Adventures of Superman 510 plus the following tidbits for AOS 510 –
    2) Pg 2 Kat? label on the stuffed cat
    3) Pg 8 Panel 2 mannequin with a bib and ‘o’ for Bibbo, Panel 3 Kad + Mouse for Cadmus
    4) Pg 11 Panel 2 coat/hat stand with Perry Sparkling Water bottle with a white sweater for Perry White
    5) pg 18 Panel 1 A crib + big toe, soup can with Dog label for Krypto the Super-Dog

    There might have been some more details I might have missed, maybe some other eagle eyed listeners might notice them.

    I know you tend to record these episodes in the dead of the night and you are tired so I understand things might slip by unnoticed.
    Anyway thanks for another great episode and keep up with your great coverage.
    Thanks a lot.
