Episode 17: World of Krypton

Welcome to the sixteenth 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 Michael and Jeffrey take a look at the first of three mini-series that were published in late 1987 thru most of 1988 to not only celebrate Superman’s 50th anniversary but also to give some insight into the back story of various aspects of Clark’s history. This time out the boys cover the four issue mini-series World of Krypton, which was written by John Byrne with art by Mike Mignola and covers by Byrne and Walt Simonson. This is a very epic story that takes places over thousands of years and established plot points that would be expanded upon for the next two to three years. Jeffrey and Michael do a good bit of disagreeing this week, so there’s that too.

Next week the boys get into 1988 with the books carrying the January 1988 cover date, which were part of the Millennium crossover.

  1. Looking back at WoK, I was surprised by the number of seeds that were planted, only to sprout in later issues of the Super-titles. I guess I’d forgotten the degree to which the miniseries set up those future stories. It’s one of the better examples of planning from the early reboot period, I think. Obviously, some of those plans were different in detail as they occurred after Byrne left, but certain key bits are there nonetheless. Excellent stuff. Here’s looking forward to the Smallville and Metropolis eps. as well.
