Welcome to the eightieth 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.
After a week off because Mike was sick the boys are back with the first episode of 2011! In this exciting episode Jeff and Mike look at the back half of the Superman books with an August 1991 cover date. An old foe returns for the first time in Adventures of Superman #481 while in Action Comics #668 Superman has to deal with all kinds of wacky theories about Lex Luthor’s death and Jeff has to deal with Mike’s impression of John Travolta. Finally the boys barely talk about Adventures of Superboy #19 before heading into Elsewhere in the DCU!
For those interested here is the cover to the issue of Adventures of Superboy discussed in this issue.

Next week: September 1991 begins with a War of the Gods crossover (which Mike and Jeff barely talk about) in Superman: The Man of Steel #3. Then Superman and Lois have a very serious talk in Superman #59.
