Back again to finish up our coverage of the third issue of each of the Superman titles. This time, Jon, Dave, and Mike tackle the latest developments in the following stories:
"Free at Last, Free at Last" -- Superboy finds his first taste of freedom and runs across a lava woman. Who is the third DNA source she mentions, and did she serve any other purpose to the story than to mention this?
"Memento" -- Supergirl follows Luke Skywalker's practice droid up to Mr. Tycho's space station, but will she be able to resist Tycho's Brain??
"A Cold Day in Hell" -- Clark's secret admirer is whisked away in a whirlwind of alien possession, and Superman has to save him. And guest artist Nicola Scott makes him look great while doing it. But just how many alien possession elementals does Pérez have up his sleeve?
We also spend some time with the third installment of Justice League but Teen Titans is left out of the running this month due to a 100% lack of Superboy. So come check out the episode!!
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 revivedLegends of the Batman.
