Chris and Cindy are joined by Kyle Benning of King-Size Comics Giant-Size Fun to celebrate the work of prolific comics writer Gerry Conway. First they discuss Gerry’s recent tumbler posts conceringcreator equity, and what it means to him and other comic creators with vested interests in DC characters.
Then it’s off to examine Conway-penned tales from Superman Family #186 and 187. Lois Lane encounters a mad African dictator with a weapon powerful enough to bend the will of the Man of Steel! Then, the Superman of Earth-One and his Earth-Two counterpart must combine forces…and bodies(!) to defeat the inter-dimensional monster known only as Krogg, before he destroys Earth-One!
