Welcome to the fifty-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.
This week we begin the fourth year of the Post Crisis on Infinite Earths Superman with the comics that came out with the January 1990 cover date. In Superman #39 Jimmy finds himself trapped in a world without color and comes face to face with someone who could be his father. Also Clark Kent makes a decision that rocks the staff of the Daily Planet. In Adventures of Superman #462 we are treated to a Christmas tale where the secret of Alice the office worker is revealed. Finally in Action Comics #649 we get the finale to the Brainiac Trilogy where Clark settles into some familiar new digs and Brainiac gets his groove back…sort of. In addition to all of that we have elsewhere in the DCU, which includes what amounts to a glorified cameo in Doom Patrol #29. Jeffrey wraps it all up with the Elsewhere in the Real World segment.
Next week: A four armed terror, the return of a certain imp from the fifth dimension and an over sized anniversary issue of Action Comics.
