Welcome to the one hundred and ninety-fifth 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.
In this exciting and music filled episode Mike and Jeff begin their coverage of the Superman books with a February 1995 cover date. First up is the first appearance of the enigmatic Lock in Superman: The Man of Steel #41. Who is he? What is his mysterious connection to Babe’s vampirism? Has modern science created a device precise enough to measure how little Mike and Jeff care for Lock? Listen and find out. Then in Superman #97 we get the first appearance of the mysterious Shadow Dragon and unlike most mysterious characters from the nineties we actually find out who he is in his first appearance. Next up the boys take a quick look at Superboy #12 and Guardians of Metropolis #4. Finally Mike and Jeff hop into a cab, pay their more than $6.50 and head to a segment they like to call Meanwhile, At The Daily Planet Building.
If you were curious what the covers to the Superboy and Guardians of Metropolis here they are.
