Welcome back to another fantastic episode of New 52 Superadventures! In this episode, Dave and Jon wrap their coverage of the 6s with the following books:
Superboy 6 -- "Not So Super" -- It's a classic case of Boy meets Girl, Girl doesn't speak English, Girl finds out Boy is a clone, Girl punches boy into space. Your traditional not-so-love story, in other words. Looks like they're laying seeds for the big Superman books crossover we were promised for this summer. Wait, isn't summer here? WHERE'S OUR CROSSOVER??
Supergirl 6 -- "The End of the Beginning" -- Supergirl's opening origin arc is nearing a close as she meets ghosts of her parents and follows Reign back to Earth to stop her from ... well, reigning it. All the pieces are in place for next month's knock down, drag out brawl. So long as Reign shuts up long enough for the fight to happen.
Superman 6 -- "The Measure of a Superman" -- It's the final chapter of George Pérez's run on the title as we find out just what's been going on all this time, leaving us secure in the knowldege of ... wait, what HAS been happening all this time?
Heckling aside, there was some good stuff this month. Mostly. And we also take some time to look at the end of "Origin" in Justice League 6 and the Superman guest spot in Batman: The Dark Knight 6. All right here, all just for you!
Thanks so much for listening. We do hope you enjoy the show, "we" being Jon M. Wilson from Golden Age Superman, J. David Weter of PADSmash!: An Incredible Hulk Podcast and Green Lantern's Light, as well as Michael Kaiser from the newly revived Legends of the Batman.
