Episode 228: Trial of Superman Part 2

Welcome to the two hundredth and twenty-eighth 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.

The Trial of Superman continues this time out with Superman learning exactly why the Tribunal wants him dead.  In Superman #106 the boys welcome new regular penciller Ron Frenz to the book and discuss the return of Massacre!  Then, in Adventures of Superman #529 Team Superman gets together to investigate where Superman went to and the Alpha Centurion makes some inappropriate moves on Lois.  We are also introduced to the motley crew of fellow prisoners that Superman is paired and there’s even a jailbreak!  It’s all very exciting with some fantastic art.

Below is a gallery of the covers and select pages from the comics discussed during this episode.

And here is that Doomsday Year One ad that Michael mentioned.

  1. Hola ,
    Another awesome podcast. The early 90’s was the best for Superman comics and most of the other Superman related comics. I remember Superman’s Trial and the death of Massacre. Even though he was a villain he shouldn’t die the way he did. I am sorry for you loss of your dog. I remember my brother’s dog Nala died back in 2016. We were in the room with my sister, mom, my brother and i was there when it was time. at least she went peacefully. I can’t wait for more episodes. I been listening since day one.
