In New Adventures of Superboy issue 20, the young Kal-El finds himself a captive on not just one but two alien worlds, with differing reasons as to why he can’t escape! Paul digs into this early 80s comic book goodness, and brings it all to you!
In this episode, Paul takes a look at New Adventures of Superboy 17 and 18. Superboy builds himself an unbeatable foe. What could possibly go wrong?
We ring in 2017 with a look at New Adventures of Superboy 14. It’s the one where Luthor tries to mess with Superboy’s powers! It also includes the story mentioned in episode 425, when Superbaby meets Zatara.
With Darren stuck in Deep Space (his internet has not yet been installed, so it’s like it’s the same thing), Paul continues his look at The New Adventures of Superboy. In this story, Superboy learns why it’s always a good idea to do one’s good deeds in the appropriate uniform! Then, a younger Superboy hands Perry White the scoop of his life!

It’s Canadian Thanksgiving, and Pride Week in Atlanta. That means it’s time for a Superboy 2-Parter from 1980. What happens when the Kents forget that Clark is Superboy? Listen and find out!
Fresh from a day at Fan Expo, Paul returns to put right what once went wrong, and records an episode about New Adventures of Superboy issue 5, which somehow was lost to the earlier coverage of the series (thanks to the eagle-eyed Thomas Lanes of the Parliament of Rooks podcast for noticing this!). How do Superboy’s powers start to diminish, and what do Ma Kent’s prize-worthy tomatoes figure into it? Also, how does this story tie into one of Paul’s all-time favourite pre-Crisis Superman stories? Those answers, and more, lie within!
Paul takes a look at July 1980’s New Adventures of Superboy issue number 7, wherein the boy of steel is sent to yet another planet to save their civilization. Will he stay on another world, never to return to Earth? Spoilers Ahead: No he won’t. Also, which is faster, Pre-Crisis Superman’s super-brain, or a Tandy TRS-80 with its blistering 1.77khz processor and between 4 and 16 kilobytes of RAM? The answer may surprise you!
While Paul fights off the bugs at the campsite, let’s revisit the 5th issue of The New Adventures of Superboy, in which Inspector Henderson arrives to try and convince him to come to Metropolis.
