New 52 Adventures of Superman

New 52 10 Superboy Supergirl 5

For the second of three episodes this month, Jon, Dave, and Mike are going to be looking at the fifth issue of each Superteen title.

Superboy 5 — “Breakout” — Before heading out to beat on Wonder Girl, Superboy wants to save Caitlin Fairchild.  But why?  What’s his motivation?  Can we figure out what Lobdell is trying to say?

Supergirl 5 — “Homecoming” — Kara goes home and finds nothing but death and destruction.  And a big ugly who beats on her.  What happened to them?  What does it all mean?  And who shot Zor-El?

The length of the discussion for the non-Action titles this month was lengthy enough that Jon felt a cut was in order.  The episodes are left a touch on the short side compared to usual, but that’s better than super-long for some people, so here it is.  Look for the rest in a week.

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 revived Legends of the Batman.  If you have thoughts on the books we cover or on our comments regarding them, please share them by writing an email or comment below.

Next episode due May 24
