Episode 486 – The Superboy Chronicles: Blind Boy’s Bluff

Paul celebrates the Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl victory by taking a look at New Adventures of Superboy 24. Superboy falls victim to Red Kryptonite, and all the wrong people seem to be figuring it out! Also, Superbaby fights aliens, and Paul takes a look at This Week in Legion History, courtesy of Michael Grabois of the Legion Omnicom.

Episode 481 – The Superboy Chronicles: The Heroic Failures of Superboy

Happy New Year! Paul kicks off the year with 2 back to back issues of The New Adventures of Superboy, issues 22 and 23. Superboy exiles himself from Smallville after he makes too many mistakes. Where will he go?!? Also, the origin of the signal lamp, and an adventure of the Dog Detective of Smallville! Lots happens in these issues, including the origin of one of Silver Age Superman’s more ridiculous villains!

Episode 460 – The Superboy Chronicles: The Planet that Kidnapped Superboy

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!

Episode 421 – The Superboy Chronicles: Clark Kent – The Reluctant Hero of Smallville

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!

Episode 412 – The Superboy Chronicles: The Secret of the Super Power Failures

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!
