Episode 39: March 1989

Welcome to the thirty-eighth 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.

Jeff and Mike are back this week to discuss the second month of the SUPERMAN IN EXILE story, which took place in the Superman books bearing the March 1989 cover date. The tales discussed this time out serve as a sequel of sorts to Adventures of Superman Annual #1, which was covered in episode 12 of this series. Superman #29 features the return of the Word Bringer and the events of that issue spill into Adventures of Superman #452. After that there’s the Elsewhere in the DCU and the Elsewhere in the Real World feature followed by more of your e-mails.

During the e-mails a listener asks which episode of one of Mike’s other podcasts (Views From The Longbox) was the one where Mike discusses Superman Returns. Mike promised to give out the episode number in these here notes so if you are interested in listening to that episode of Views  click right here for the episode information or head on over to iTunes and search for Michael Bailey’s Views of the Longbox. Fair warning; that episode was more family friendly then others but Mike would like to throw out a parental guidance is suggested just in case.

  1. While Adv. of Superman Annual #1 was hardly an utter failure, I wasn’t ecstatic to see this month’s revisiting of that story. I think Dan Jurgens & Co. actually improve on the material, but I agree with Michael and Jeffrey about Mar 1989 feeling like a placeholder or stopgap month. Still, it’s Exile and that means cool “Superman in space” moments when he actually gets to help someone in need — even if starships and tractors are a *tad* bit different from another. Ha!

  2. This is probably the best, most concise step-by-step guide I’ve ever seen on how to build a successful blog.
    Thanks for sharing!
