Welcome to the one hundred and ninetieth 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.
Dead Again continues!
Michael and Jeff close out the cover date November 1994 books starting with Adventures of Superman #517, which features Superman’s first confrontation with the villain known as Deathtrap! Then they give a quick look at Outsiders #12 because that issue leads into Action Comics #704, where Superman hunts down the Eradicator to see if he is responsible for all the shenanigans going on in Metropolis. After a break the boys discuss Steel #9 and the first issues of Guardians of Metropolis and Metropolis: SCU as well as looking at the other books that DC put out that month. Finally they talk about Madame Ex and Wall of Sound which were the first two episodes of the second season of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.
