Welcome to the two hundredth 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.
This time out Mike and Jeff kick off their discussions about the Superman books with a September 1995 cover date with the resolution to one story and a special guest star in the next. In Action Comics #713 the whole Savior storyline wraps up as Ramsey Murdoch finally becomes the Savior, emphasis on the word “finally”. There’s also some bits and bobs involving the fallout of Jimmy rage quitting the Planet, Cat Grant’s problems at work and another example of why Lois and Clark should not leave town for a date. This is followed by Superman: The Man of Steel #48, which guest stars future (or current or past, depending on when you read this) movie sensation Aquaman! It seems there are monsters from the deep attacking the shore and Superman momentarily forgets that he is in a DC book for moment leading to the always hilarious fight followed by a team-up against a new undersea threat.
Below is a gallery of covers and selected pages from the comics discussed.
