Welcome to the sixtieth 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 time out the boys discuss the Superman books that came out with the August 1990 cover date on them. In Superman #46 the Man of Steel teams-up with two heroes from Infinity, Inc. to fight the new Terra-Man. Adventures of Superman #469 begins with a serious public display of affection before two old enemies show up to get revenge on…Clark Kent! Then Soul Search begins in Action Comics #656 with Superman going to…Hades to fight for the souls of Jerry White and Jimmy Olsen. This is all followed by a quick look at Superboy: The Comic Book #7, Elsewhere in the DCU and the Elsewhere, Elsewhere feature.
Quick note; From Crisis to Crisis will be one or two days late next week due to a scheduling conflict. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on that.
Another quick note: Mike states at one point that the Superboy comic the boys discuss this month is the last one penciled by Jim Mooney. This is not the case. He pencils the next issue as well.
Once again we present scans from the issues we discuss in the episode starting with the page Michael talked about from Superman #46.
Next is the page from Adventures of Superman #469 where Superman sends Dreadnaught on a little trip.
The final two scans are from Action Comics #656. This first one is the fantastic splash page after Superman is sent to Hell.
And finally Superman calls out Blaze at the end of the issue.
Next week: Superman fights Blaze, the death of a supporting character and the return of a certain toy-centric villain.
