Welcome to the seventy-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.
Time and Time Again phases out and an old enemy returns in the Superman books with the May 1991 cover date. Mike and Jeffrey dive right in with Superman #55 where there’s a lot of Merlin and the Demon and at some point Superman shows up. Time and Time Again concludes in Adventures of Superman #478 with Superman once again teaming up with the Legion of Super-Heroes to stop an evil Daxamite from destroying the Moon! Action Comics #665 is next and even though Superman has returned to 1991 he doesn’t have long to rest as Baron Sunday is up to no good.
As a bonus Mike and Jeff cover Superman: For Earth, a prestige format book where Superman deals head on with environmental issues. It’s a pretty heavy handed story but it has a very important conversation between Lois and Clark. Then the boys cover Adventures of Superboy #16 where Superboy meets Superman. Finally there are the usual Elsewhere in the DCU and Elsewhere, Elsewhere segments.
And now…the scans!
Next is the cover to Adventures of Superboy #16. It’s been a few weeks since we showcased a cover to this book and Mike apologizes for that. It just slipped his mind. He removed it from the episode graphic because it looked better and had intended to post the covers here but it just didn’t work out that way.
Mind you we’re not trying to make fun of this but felt it was worth mentioning nonetheless.
Finally we get to the ads from this week’s batch of issues. First up is the movie poster from The Rocketeer. This is a fantastic movie and if you haven’t seen it already you should do so as soon as you can.
