Episode 37: Cosmic Odyssey

Welcome to the thirty-seventh 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.

Presenting another side-trip episode as Mike and Jeff put off Exile for one week to examine the four issue, prestige format series Cosmic Odyssey. Written by Jim Starlin with art by Mike Mignola this Fourth World fueled story threatened the entire galaxy and since Superman was a major part of the fight the boys are covering it here. This is probably the most contentious episode as Jeff and Mike argue a great deal about how the Man of Steel is presented so if nothing else you can listen for the “bloodbath” that ensues.

Or just listen because it turns out that Cosmic Odyssey was a lot better than either of the guys remembered. It’s your choice really.

Next week: Exile.
