Welcome to the two hundredth and sixth 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 Death of Clark Kent continues!
Under normal circumstances Mike and Jeff cover two books from a given cover month per episode. This time they are only covering one regular issue because in March of 1995 DC decided to pull the trigger on having the cover dates line up with the release dates. See, for several months Action Comics was coming out during the first week of the month but still had the cover date of the previous month. Normally Mike and Jeff cover Adventures of Superman and Action Comics together but there was no Action Comics with a May 1995 cover date so it will be covered next time. This made for a shorter than usual episode as they only covered one main Superman book. That book was Adventures of Superman #523 where we see Jonathan, Martha and Clark on the run from Conduit and Superman fighting some heavy hitters from his rogues gallery who are now working for Kenny Braverman.
Clark also wear a cowboy hat.
It’s very nineties.
After that the boys look at Steel #15, Outsiders #18 and Showcase ’95 #5 as well as trip-hammering through what else was going on in the DC Universe.
