Welcome to the first episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a five year mission to seek out old comics and old story lines and to boldly cover the Superman comics published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman in 2006.
This week your hosts, Michael Bailey and Jeffrey Taylor, kick things off with the mini-series that started the Crisis to Crisis era; Man of Steel. After a little bit of background info on the creation of the series Jeff and Mike get into the nitty gritty and explore the first two issues. Experience or re-experience the final days of the Post Crisis Krypton, how the Kents found the baby Clark Kent, Clark beginning to discover his origins, Superman’s first appearance, the first meeting with Lois Lane, Superman’s first days in Metropolis and how Clark got the job at the Daily Planet.
Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.
