Welcome to the two hundredth and forty-seventh 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.
There was only one main book to talk about this time out, but Mike and Jeff certainly make a meal of it. To finish out cover date May 1996 the boys talk about Superman: The Man of Steel #56. This issue features the return of Mister Mxyzptlk, and boy is Mxy unhappy when he finds out that Lois and Clark have broken up. It’s almost sweet in a way. They also discuss Bibbo’s big fight, which was one of the more pleasant sub-plots to come out in 1996. After that, Mike and Jeff answer the very important question of Hey, Wha’ Happened elsewhere in the DC Universe by looking at Superboy #27, Steel #26, Showcase ’96 #5, DC vs. Marvel #4, and a few other non-Superman related comics that came out that month.
Here are the covers and select pages from the comic discussed in this episode.
