Welcome to the one hundred and ninety-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.
Dead Again continues…
On a more pleasant note welcome to cover date 1995! Come on in. Sit a spell.
Mike and Jeff begin there look at the January 1995 cover dated books with Superman: The Man of Steel #40 which has Superman fighting things that aren’t there and a lot of body horror imagery. Then in Superman #96 the villain behind all of the Dead Again shenanigans is revealed and Superman fights more things that aren’t there. This is what experts refer to as a mental [email protected]#$%. After that the boys take a quick look at Superboy #11 and Guardians of Metropolis #3, which they had some disagreements about. Mike also goes on and on about the Jack Kirby Fourth World books from the seventies in this section, so be warned. Finally Mike and Jeff hop into a cab, pay their $7.50 and head on over to a segment they like to call Meanwhile, At The Daily Planet.
