The New 52 Adventures of Superman continue this week with Supergirl 7 and Superman 7! Plus, the new modern-day Steve Trevor series starts up in a book called Justice League 7, with an appearance from Superman. And the not-so-amazing opening arc of Batman: The Dark Knight wraps with issue 7, also including a minor Superman appearance. But here are the main stories of the episode:
Supergirl 7 -- "Graduation Day" -- The opening arc of the Maid of Might comes to an action-packed finish as Supergirl faces off with the four World-Killers with the fate of Manhattan resting squarely on her teenage shoulders!
Superman 7 -- "To Hel and Back" -- The Daemonite saga running throughout various corners of the DCU comes to Superman as he is captured by Helspont in this first issue from the new creative team of Jurgens and Giffen.
Thanks so much for listening. We do hope you enjoy the show, "we" being Jon M. Wilson from Golden Age Superman and J. David Weter of PADSmash!: An Incredible Hulk Podcast and Green Lantern's Light.
