Welcome to the two hundredth and twenty-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.
This time out Mike and Jeff finish up their examination of the Superman books with an October 1995 cover date by looking at the supplemental books for that month. Spoiler warning; most of these books are pretty bad. Superboy #20 has a guest star in the form of Green Lantern and Superboy teaming up with Kyle Rayner should have been awesome and it…wasn’t. Then they talk about Steel #20, which has every early ‘90s comic book cliché ever and nearly broke Mike and Jeff. The fall continues with brief (really brief actually) discussions of New Titans #126, Showcase’95 #9 and Outsiders #23. Things pick up at the end with a quick look at Green Arrow issues 100 and 101, which is better than the other books but not by much. Finally, the boys go through their regular features Meanwhile, At The Daily Planet and Elsewhere in the DCU.
Below is a gallery of covers and (some) selected pages from the comics discussed.
