Episode 63: The Dan Jurgens Interview

Welcome to the sixty-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 week Mike and Jeff have something special for you. Instead of covering the World’s Finest mini-series like they’ve been promising for a few weeks now the boys decided to release the interview they conducted a few weeks ago with the one, the only, DAN JURGENS!

Jeff and Mike “sat down” with him for a little over an hour and had a fun and informative conversation. Topics include how Dan got sucked into the world of comics, the behind the scenes origin for Booster Gold, the early days of Dan working on Superman, destructible cape vs. indestructible cape, Lois vs. Lana,  Day of the Krypton Man, Lobo, Soul Search, Krisis of the Krimson Kryptonite and the shocking truth behind why all of the cab rides in Metropolis were $6.50.

Mike and Jeff would like to thank Dan for being very generous with his time. They hope to have him back soon.

Next Week: Batman and Superman team up in the World’s Finest mini-series. For reals this time. No seriously. They aren’t putting it or The Sinbad Contract off at all. They promise.

Dan Jurgens has his own website which you can find by following this link.

    Awesome! Dan Jurgens had a hand in more post-Crisis Superman stories than any other writer or artist and he’s hands down my favorite artist of this era. It’s great you were able to interview him. I hope scheduling works out so you can discuss his later work, as well. Great interview, guys!

  2. Can’t wait to listen to this! Had he been a fan of the podcasts? I hope he heard some of the praise you guys had been heaping on his work for the last few months.
