Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill

Cosmic Treadmill, Ep. 6 - Superman: Kryptonite Nevermore!

November 2, 2017

In this very special re-upload, junior geologists Reggie (@reggiereggie) and Chris (@acecomics) talk a lot about... sand!  Sand Supermen in fact... when they cover the classic Denny O'Neil and Curt Swan story we now refer to as Kryptonite Nevermore!  They chat about each issue... however, this comes from a time before they discovered their love of (and indisputable talent for) voice-acting... so it's on the brief side.  They wrap up their discussion by looking at the times where DC saw fit to send Superman back into the sandbox, and even address some Death of Superman related fan (and Wizard Magazine) theories!  It's a good time as always, so check it out!
