Welcome to the one hundred and sixty-ninth 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 BATTLE FOR METROPOLIS CONTINUES!
Yes, the boys are back. Let’s not make a big thing of it.
This time out Mike and Jeff continue their coverage of The Battle For Metropolis with the first two Superman books with a June 1994 cover date and a satellite book for good measure. First up is a brief look at Superboy #5 as it crosses into this story in a fairly substantial way. The action continues in Superman: The Man of Steel #34 where, if the cover is any indication, bad things happen for the Guardian. Finally in Superman #90 Cadmus Director Westfield finally gets what is coming to him. The boys end the episode with a look at what was happening in the real world when these issues were released in a segment they like to call Meanwhile, At The Daily Planet Building!
For those interested here is the cover to Superboy #5.
