Welcome to the fifth 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 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.
Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.
This week your hosts, Michael Bailey and Jeffrey Taylor, examine the books that came out with the cover date of March 1987 and is the first post-Crisis crossover, both in terms of the books crossing over with each other and in terms of crossing into a major DC event. Superman #3, Adventures of Superman #426 and Action Comics #586 were all chapters of the Legends crossover that DC published in late 1986/early 1987. Jeff and Mike discuss Legends as a mini-series before going into the issues themselves with a little more Legends talk right there at the end. This episode clocks in at about an hour and eighteen minutes, which is a tad longer than normal but the extra space is worth it. At least the guys think so, but what do they know?
If you want to comment on the show or contact the hosts you can always private message Mike and Jeff, at the Superman Homepage, leave comments here or at the Homepage or here or email them by clicking this link. All questions, concerns, fears, trepidations and cheap shots are welcome. The guys will try to incorporate e-mails into the episodes once the show gets rolling.
Seriously, let us know what you think.
