Welcome to the seventy-fifth 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.
It is episode 75 and surprisingly (though some might say disappointingly) no one dies in an epic battle with Doomsday. Instead, Mike and Jeff finish up their Armageddon 2001 talk by looking at Adventures of Superman Annual #3 (where Superman leaves Earth after a terrible tragedy and ends up hooking up with Maxima) and Armageddon 2001 #2 (where Monarch’s identity is revealed and a big ol’ fight breaks out). Between those two comics the boys give you an overview of the other ARMAGEDDON 2001 annuals in addition to delving into why the big reveal of Monarch’s identity was such a letdown despite the series being so good.
Again, no scans this week as it would just ruin the books. Sorry.
Next week: E-mails! Lots and lots of e-mails.
