Welcome to the one hundred and 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.

Welcome to a very late episode of From Crisis to Crisis, folks.  The world seems to be against the show this week but hopefully the technical difficulties and weather delays are over and the show can continue on as normal or as normal as this show gets.

This week Jeff and Mike finish out the June 1992 cover dated Superman books.  The first comic covered this week is Adventures of Superman #491 where Superman fights Metallo and Jose Delgado is injured!  Then the boys cover Action Comics #678 and boy is this a doozy because it features the secret origin of LEX LUTHOR II!  Finally they talk about Justice League America #63 which relates the story of Maxima returning to her home planet of Almerac which has been conquered by an old Justice League villain!  After that another edition of Elsewhere in the DC Universe and then Mike and Jeff call it a week!

After several weeks, an anniversary episode and a bunch of e-mails things have finally calmed down at From Crisis to Crisis Studios.  Jeff and Mike have enjoyed all of the fun but it was time to get back to the meat and potatoes of the show.  This week the boys cover the first two Superman books bearing a June 1992 cover date.  In Superman: The Man of Steel #12 the Warworld refugees make their big move on Metropolis and only a giant whale can save the day.  Then in Superman #68 Lucy Lane is caught in the crossfire between the SCU and Deathstroke the Terminator, which upsets her future brother-in-law Superman.  This is followed by some Adventures of Superboy discussion and the newly named Meanwhile segment where Jeffrey tells you what else was going on in the world while these books were on the stands.

This time out Jeff and Mike read a bunch of e-mails.  The shows have been running long lately and they thought a nice, short, listener centric episode would be nice.  The episode turned out to be a lot shorter than expected because Skype was acting up.  In any case the boys plow through a bunch of your e-mails and a good time is had by…them.  And you…hopefully.
