Welcome to the one hundred and ninety-fourth 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 concludes!
Mike and Jeff are happy to say that Dead Again, which started out just fine and dandy, dandy and fine, is over with the back half of the January 1995 cover dated Superman books. After a preamble that started out as brief and ended up being something else entirely where Mike proved that math is definitely not his strong point, the boys take a look at part 11 of Dead Again in Adventures of Superman #519. After talking about that issue and the Dead Again story as a whole the boys discuss the back door pilot for a Supergirl series that is Action Comics #706. Included at no extra charge is commentary on how Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were treated by DC Comics. Then the boys covers Showcase ’95 #1, Steel #11, an issue of Guy Gardner: Warrior, Metropolis: SCU #3, Outsiders #14 (which Mike didn’t read because of a mix up but that’s okay because the Eradicator wasn’t even in it) as well as what else was going on in the DC Universe.
During the episode Mike recommends you check out episodes 58-60 of Just One of the Guys, hosted by Shawn Engle. Shawn has recently finished his mandate of covering the 1990 Green Lantern series (plus Guy Gardner: Warrior) and it was a hell of a show. In one of the episodes listed above he covered the Guy Gardner issue we talked about.
