  1. Thanks for another fun show. This comic sounds interesting in a Lady Cop way. The similarity between the two stories reminds me of a Seventies DC comic in which both lead and back-up strip ended on a cliffhanger of the star disappearing and the editor instigated a letter of contest inviting people to find a way to connect the tales. (I thought it was Adventure Comics in the 450s when Superboy was starring, but apparently not - anybody?)

    I don’t think that trigger warning was necessarily, if Relatively Geeky listeners were that fragile we would surely seek counselling.

    1. It All Goes Back To Lady Cop! I love that story of similar stories, it was just so weird.

      Maybe us Americans are a little more delicate these days than you hardy UK folk.

  2. Got it, thanks to Scott Rowland of the Back Issue Facebook group, it was Adventure Comics #457, Superboy and Eclipso were both fading away at the end of their separate stories.

    (Hope my going so far off piste doesn’t leave anyone… well, you know)
