Episode 121: Doomsday Part 3

Welcome to the one hundred and twenty-first 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.

The epic coverage of the Death and Return of Superman continues this week with the fourth and fifth parts of Doomsday.  Mike and Jeff kick things off with what was supposed to be a brief history lesson that turned out to be not so brief at all.  In any case they go over the real world origin of the death of Superman and how word of the story hit the media and caused a sensation.  After that the action continues in Adventures of Superman #497 where Superman and eventually Maxima battle against Doomsday in a small town with explosive results.  This is followed by Action Comics #684 where there is more fighting and Doomsday gets sucked into professional wrestling.  Finally the boys go over the ads that appeared in this month’s batch of issues and tell you what other titles were on the stands when these comics were published.

Next time: Nothing of consequence happens in either Superman: The Man of Steel #19 or Superman #75.

Nope.  Nothing special about those books at all.

Except for the fact that a major character dies.

Other than that these issues have no historical value whatsoever.
