Welcome to the forty-second 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.
Exile pulls an Emeril Lagasse this week and kicks it up a notch (BAM!) inside the books bearing the cover date of June 1989. Action Comics returns this week, at least in annual form, with Action Comics Annual #2 where a very important figure and artifact from Krypton’s past makes his and its first appearance in addition to revealing untold secrets of Krypton’s past. In Superman #32 Mongul and Superman throw down not once but twice. Finally, in Adventures of Superman #455 it is Mongul vs. Draaga as Warworld erupts into full blown civil war. Also Superman finally ditches the gladiator outfit that Jeffrey has such a problem with.
Next week: Exile concludes!
