Welcome to the two hundredth and twentieth 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.
This time out Mike and Jeff are trying out yet another new format by putting all the side and related titles into their own episode. They don’t know how well this is going to work, but they are willing to give it a shot. So, over the course of this episode the boys will be talking about the supplemental issues from cover date August 1995. There are two books they spend the most time on, the first being Superboy #18. In this issue The Kid takes on Champion, a super powered fighter sent to attack Superboy by a crooked guy named Gamboli for fun and profit. Or at the very least profit. Then in Steel #18 things heat up with John’s battle with Hazard and we get more with Chindi. After that the boys trip hammer through Loose Cannon #3, New Titans #124 and Outsiders #21 because two out of the three of those books are really freaking bad.
Below is a gallery of covers and selected pages from the comics discussed.
