SUPERMAN GOES TO BLAZES THIS WEEK!

Well, Superman goes to the Newstime Building, which has been overrun by demons sent by Blaze, so the above statement is somewhat accurate.

Anyway, Mike and Jeff are back this week to finish out the Superman books with an August 1992 cover date.  The Blaze/Satanus War begins in Adventures of Superman #493 as Sam Foswell starts his new job at Newstime and all H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks breaks loose forcing Lord Satanus to make his first Post-Crisis appearance.  The war continues in Action Comics #680 where things heat up (pun intended) and Sam Foswell is drawn deeper into Blaze’s plan.  Then in Justice League America #65 (which has nothing to do with the Blaze/Satanus War) the Leaguers have their final showdown with Starbreaker.  Finally there are the ads and Elsewhere in the DCU.

Oh, and Mike’s dog makes a special appearance late in the episode.  That is the snoring you hear.

Things suck this week…

Things are a real pain in the neck this week…

Jeff and Mike don’t drink…wine this week…

All right…enough with the jokes.  Mike and Jeff are back this week to talk about the first two Superman books with an August 1992 cover date and both issues have a vampire as their villain!  All of the blood-sucking plot threads from the past few months come to a head this time out as Superman fights him a bloodsucker.  Robin (sidekick to the Batman) comes to Metropolis to lend a hand as well and even teams up with Jimmy Olsen.  Sit back and listen to the boys argue about Superman: The Man of Steel #14 and Superman #70.  After that Jeffrey gives you the Meanwhile, At The Daily Planet segment complete with a long tangent on Batman Returns!

Things return to normal this week (or as close to normal as things get around the luxurious From Crisis to Crisis studios) as the boys finish their discussion on the Superman books with a July 1992 cover date.  In Adventures of Superman #492 the whole Sons of Liberty affair comes to a head and boy is it violent.  Then in Action Comics #679 Superman fights a villain named Shellshock over the skies of Washington D.C.   Justice League of America #64 features the second chapter of the three part Starbreaker story.  Finally Jeff and Mike yak about the ads before going into the usual Meanwhile and Elsewhere segments.

Welcome to a special episode of From Crisis to Crisis, everybody.  This time out Jeff and Mike are not covering a month in the life of the Post Crisis on Infinite Earths Superman.  Instead they welcome back Rennie Cowan, webmaster of Superboy Theater, to discuss the final three episodes of the Adventures of Superboy television series as well as the Adventures of Superboy Special, which was a comic released shortly after the final episode of the series.  This is a massive conversation and covers not only the episodes and the comic but the show in general.  There is also some movie talk thrown in there, some Smallville discussion (where Mike is just dead wrong about something) and even some comic book talk as well.  It is different than what the boys usually present but it was a lot of fun for them to record.  Special thanks to Rennie for coming on to the show especially on such short notice.

Another guest visits the spacious From Crisis to Crisis Studios this week!  Rennie Cowan, webmaster of Superboy Theater sat down with Jeff and Mike to not only discuss Superman: The Man of Steel #13 (where Superman finally came face to face to face to face with Cerberus) and Superman #69 (featuring the penultimate chapter of the Sons of Liberty storyline) but also to chat about the last three episodes of the Adventures of Superboy television series and the comic book tie-in special.  The “problem” (notice the quotes there, folks) is that Rennie and the boys had SO much to say about the Superboy episodes and comic that they spent two hours talking about them in addition to the nearly two hours they spent talking about the regular comics.  Mike and Jeff talked about it for a few minutes and decided to split this episode in two.  So this week you get the comics and next week they wrap up their coverage of Superboy.

Next Time: Mike, Jeffrey and Rennie spend an entire episode talking about the final episodes of the Adventures of Superboy and discuss the Adventures of Superboy Special that came out a few weeks later.
