Welcome to the 79th 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.
Mike and Jeff are back with the last episode of 2010 and even though they recorded this one on the day before Christmas Eve the Superman books they discuss have an August 1991 cover date. In SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL #2 we meet Sgt. Belcher and Rorc, two minions of Cerberus. They continue Cereberus’ attack on Lexcorp and threaten reign down destruction on the city if their demands are not met. Then, in SUPERMAN #58, Cadmus, through the Bloodhounds, capture Superman. It seems that the director of Cadmus believes Superman to be a threat and boy is Superman peeved about that. Finally in FLASH #53 Superman and the Wally West Flash have to save Jimmy Olsen from a madman. Add to that Jeffrey’s elsewhere in the real world and you have a full episode of FROM CRISIS TO CRISIS.
Next week: August 1991 continues with ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #481, ACTION COMICS #668 and ADVENTURES OF SUPERBOY #19.
