Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill

Cosmic Treadmill, Ep. 4 - The World of Krypton (1979)

November 16, 2017

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to... ask the Matricomp if a certain pair of Kryptonians ought to be wed!

During this Cosmic Treadmill Classic Co-head-ushers, Chris (@acecomics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) keep their peepers perked for Bronze-Age wedding crashers when Jor-El decides to make an honest woman out of Lara.

Whattaya mean "That's not the way I remember The World of Krypton going!"?  Well, that's because we're not reading that one... but it'll get a mention!


Issues requested by Freni Sillona.  Thanks Freni!
