Episode 31: December 1988

Welcome to the thirty-first 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 time out Jeffrey and Michael tackle the Superman books that came out with the cover date of December 1988. In Superman #24 we see the return of Rampage and why Superman steers clear of the political arena. In Adventures of Superman #447 Superman and Clark Kent both get to play hero and there is yet another appearance of the new Gangbuster. The guys also tackle Swamp Thing #79 as Superman makes a healthy guest appearance in that issue before reading some more of your e-mails.

  1. Kudos to you, Michael and Jeffrey, for your willingness to take constructive criticism, however “tough,” and address it on air. I don’t necessarily agree with every jot and tittle of Scott Gardner’s critique, but I appreciate knowing you’re committed to making the show the best possible podcast it can be. I’m sure I’m not the only one to notice improvements, both large and small, over the last many months, and I want you to know that, for this listener at least, they haven’t gone unnoticed or unappreciated. Here’s to the many months and years to come!

    I agree with Dion, kudos for listening to your audience’s feedback. Stuff like that is what elevates this show about others. Personally, I’m a fan of the off-subject Tangents you two get into. It keeps the show organic and not simply a Ben stein-ish synopsis.
