Welcome to the eleventh 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 #649in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.
Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.
This week Jeff and Mike finish off the Superman books from cover date August 1987 by looking at Adventures of Superman #431 and Superman Annual #1. In the first book they discuss a complete throw away villain named Dr. Stratos and in the second they discuss another Silver Age concept getting a then modern update in the form of Titano. After that Mike and Jeff get to a good number of e-mails. Highlights include Jeff and Mike listing their favorite Superman artists, Mike getting a lesson in stanza and meter and Mike going on for way too long about a very minor point from Man of Steel #3.
Special note: At one point Mike says the word revengeance. He has no idea why he would do such a thing and there was no way to edit it out. So he apologizes now.
Also, this is another long one but a lot of that time is spent with listener e-mails.
