Episode 50: December 1989

Welcome to the FIFTIETH 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.

This week the show hits the big 5-0 and the boys can hardly believe it. Nearly a year ago Jeff and Mike sat down to record the first episode of this series and in that time they have interviewed two creators and covered not only Man of Steel but three years worth of Superman comics. The boys have had a ball and the end is nowhere in sight yet.

This is a pretty meaty episode too. First off they cover Superman #38 where Superman has to deal with a Roland Emmerich style disaster and a “Mr. Complainy Pants” Dr. Hamilton. Then in Adventures of Superman #461 a certain something of solitude returns. Action Comics #648 has the second part of The Brainiac Trilogy. Finally, at least in terms of Superman appearing in other comics, we have Christmas with the Super-Heroes #2, Justice League Europe #10 and Wonder Woman numbers 37 through 39. Then there’s the usual Elsewhere in the DCU and the Elsehwhere in the Real World segments.

Mike and Jeff would like to thank their listeners for downloading the show every week and taking the time to listen to their somewhat coherent ramblings. They appreciate it and here’s to over 200 more episodes.
