Episode 59: The 1990 Superman Related Annuals
Welcome to the fifty-ninth 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.
Last week the guys recorded an extra long episode. This week they go in the opposite direction for reasons explained at the end of the episode. Before that, though, Jeff and Mike look at the two Superman related annuals from 1990. The first is Adventures of Superman Annual #2, which guest stars the L.E.G.I.O.N. and, despite having a rather abrupt ending, was a good, old fashioned super-hero team-up complete with a couple of really solid fight scenes. This story continues in L.E.G.I.O.N. ’90 Annual #1 where Vril Dox, Jr. finally faces off against his father…Brainiac! The problem is that the younger Dox wants to kill his old man and the Man of Steel isn’t having any of that. After that the boys read some e-mails until they had to unexpectedly stop. Thankfully there was enough material recorded to make a full sized episode and the boys promise that there will be more e-mails next time.
