FROM CRISIS TO CRISIS EPISODE 269 – THE WEDDING

Episode 269 – The Wedding

Welcome to the two hundredth and sixty-ninth episode of  From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast

Actually…that’s not true anymore.

Welcome to the two hundredth and sixty-ninth episode of From Crisis to Crisis – The Married Years: A Superman and Lois Podcast!

That’s right. Now that Mike and Jeff have reached the actual, factual wedding (and now that the official feed for the show is changing) they felt that a change in title was in order. The show hasn’t really changed. In fact, the numbering is the same, but something had to be done to mark that this momentous occasion has happened. This podcast still 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 is it, folks!

Finally…Lois and Clark get hitched!

Well, not right away. First Mike and Jeff have to talk about Superman #118, which is the issue right before the wedding. Lois Lane is in on the trail of a drug dealer and meets someone that takes her on a quest that leads her to realize that maybe she still has feelings for Clark. Meanwhile, Superman still doesn’t have any powers and does some tests to see why that is. During the test Superman gets a pep talk from Wonder Woman. Then, in Superman: The Wedding Album #1, the very first Triangle Era Special, Lois and Clark reunite and after a tense conversation the engagement is back on and it’s all about planning the ceremony. It’s an all-star effort on the creative side and the boys cover the bachelor party, the bridal dinner, Lois picking out her dress, the search for a new apartment, the rehearsal dinner, Sam Lane acting like a jerk, and then…FINALLY…the wedding ceremony itself.

After that, Mike and Jeff discuss the third episode of season four of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman titled Swear to God, This Time We’re Not Kidding. It’s the television wedding of Lois and Clark and the coverage of this one is much more positive than the last episodes of Lois and Clark. The boys even go easy on the “villain” of the episode.

Below are covers and images related to the comics discussed during this episode.

Here are the covers to the various collected editions and reprints of the wedding. The first image comes from Superman: The Wedding and Beyond, published in November of 1997. The second image is the cover to Superman & Lois Lane: The 25th Wedding Anniversary Deluxe Edition from September of 2021. The final image was from the cover of DC Comics Presents – Superman: Lois & Clark 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 from November of 2015.

And here is the cover and article from Wizard: The Guide to Comics #63.

Mike and Jeff talk about a Watch This Space, which had the guide to who the guests at the wedding were.

And finally, here are some behind the scenes images from the 2021 Deluxe Edition that Mike and Jeff utterly failed to talk about.
