Post-Crisis Action Comics & Adventures (Crisis 'Til Death II)

Host Anthony Desiato digs into the John Byrne-era ACTION COMICS and ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN as "Crisis 'Til Death" continues! In Part II, Anthony and guest Bernie Gerstmayr discuss Byrne's run on ACTION COMICS (#584-600), which functioned as a team-up series that introduced Superman and readers to the Post-Crisis DCU, as well as Marv Wolfman and Jerry Ordway's run on ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN (#424-444), which developed supporting cast members such as Gangbuster, Prof. Emil Hamilton, and Cat Grant. "Crisis 'Til Death" runs WEEKLY, so come back in 1 week for Part III!
