Post-Crisis Superman by John Byrne (Crisis 'Til Death I)

Host Anthony Desiato begins an epic 8-part deep dive into the period of Superman history from 1986 to 1993, aka the post-CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS relaunch through the Death and Return of Superman! In Part I, Anthony and guest Dan Greenfield (13thDimension.com) dig into writer/artist John Byrne's run on the SUPERMAN title, which spanned issues #1-22 and pitted the Man of Steel against Metallo, the billionaire industrialist iteration of Lex Luthor, and a trio of pocket-universe Kryptonian villains (with fateful results). "Crisis 'Til Death" runs WEEKLY, so come back in 1 week for Part II!
