Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 65 - The Death of Superman, Part 3: Reign of the Supermen (1993)

November 19, 2017

Hello again, friends! In this episode, Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) return to their 25th Anniversary celebration of the DC Comics event "The Death of Superman" with a look at 1993's "Reign of the Supermen," which ran through Action Comics #687, Superman: The Man of Steel #22, Superman #78, and Adventures of Superman #501--four comic books which were all released on the same day! After introducing some new creators and describing two related comics that came out during a three-month Superman publishing hiatus, they dissect each issue in their usual style. After a little discussion of their memories of reading this series as it came out, our pair look at other times heroes had to be replaced by understudies! It's an episode jam-packed with returns!
