Welcome to the eighty-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.
This week Jeff and Mike cover the first two Superman books with a November 1991 cover date. In Superman: The Man of Steel #5 Superman fights the Atomic Skull while the Atomic Skull has one fantastic hallucination. Then, in Superman #61, Superman and Waverider meet the mysterious Linear Men and a healthy debate on the merits of time travel ensues, at least in the story. Finally Jeff gives you the lowdown on what else was going on in rest of the world the world the month these books were released.
Next week: Blackout Begins…unfortunately.
