FROM CRISIS TO CRISIS EPISODE 44: ACW & LEX LUTHOR

Episode 44: Action Comics Weekly and Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography

Welcome to the forty-fourth 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 Mike and Jeff take another side trip from the month to month “grind” by discussing the Superman stories from Action Comics Weekly and Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography. In Action Comics Weekly Superman has to deal with a religious order that looks to him as their deity. Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography tells the story of Peter Sands, a down on his luck reporter that gets the story of a lifetime, though he may not stay alive long enough to tell it. No Elsewhere features this week though the guys do read a few reader e-mails.

Next week; the return of an old threat and the final fate of Matrix.
