Welcome to the fifty-third 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 is a big one, folks! Two and a half hours of From Crisis to Crisis goodness! Why two and a half hours? We have no idea but it sure was fun to record. This time out the boys talk about the Superman books that came out with the February 1990 cover date. In Superman #40 the Man of Steel fights the Four Armed Terror. In Adventures of Superman #463 we get the race of the century as Superman races Wally West, the Flash. Action Comics #650 comes up next and not only is it a great story but Mike comes clean about his criminal past. Finally Mike and Jeff bring in Superboy: The Comic Book with issue #1, based on the syndicated series that was airing at the time. They don’t cover the book as in depth as the others but they wanted to talk about it just the same. So you get all of this and the usual Elsewhere in the DCU and Elsewhere in the Real World segments plus an e-mail.
Next week: DAY OF THE KRYPTON MAN BEGINS!
