Host Anthony Desiato presents a special double feature!

Then, in the second half, Rob O'Connor (All Star Superfan Podcast) returns for a discussion of writer Mark Millar's run on the late 90s comic book series SUPERMAN ADVENTURES, set in the style and continuity of SUPERMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES.

Next week, Digging for Kryptonite celebrates its milestone 150th episode with the start of an epic new fan journey! Stay tuned.
