    By the same account 1993 was a huge year for Superman sales across the board, and the circulation before 1970 indicates those AC #1000...

    Still laughing at goofy ol Pa Fist. That's so Snyder and I'd love to see how he described it in the script.

    I don't really think you have to mess with those quirks because I think they're in the...

    Then it's like you can see the difference right there in 1950 with that analysis scene. The point where he'd gotten away from doing Shuster but didn't completely settle into his own style. I have my...
  5. Sticky: I always like coming across later works from...

    I always like coming across later works from golden age artists, like some cool sketches from Burnley when he had the chance to draw pin up style. Superman #35 was also just a really great cover to...

    What is half Canadian? Like a Canadian motorist finds him and drops him off in Kansas? Or Martha hails from BC and brings him there for summers?

    Brian Vaughan, a Cleveland native, did a funny bit...

    "Superman is a chump." I am not into Superman dropping to a rooftop to sulk and getting that mental massage from a stranger. It's just the idea taking up the story to me is weak, how he just sits...

    AvX was an awful event and a cornerstone of the effort to throw the franchise under to put another higher. However, Gillen's run pre AvX was already longer than what Rosenberg had in total. He didn't...

    Astonishing
    Uncanny
    War of Realms

    I thought it was a very amusing mix of uncertainty and love letter. That sort of makes it a perfect send off to the dark ages even if that means ending up with...

    I finally got a pretty nice copy of Popeye Volume five! Too bad my volume one was trashed in my move last week. From "POPE" to "OPEY"

    Well it does involve coming to terms with the concept of a shared universe. Villains and antiheroes will exist no matter how "good" the heroes. Why doesn't the Spectre punish Slade, y'know?

    The...

    Yeah, what I'm saying is that there isn't just one kind of "fix." Byrne made changes to everything where O'Neil wasn't going to, but I figured we were talking about the main character they had in...

    Buckler is one of the guys I always just wanted to have a longer Superman bibliography. RIP.

    At the top for me are Barreto, Simonson, and Gammill. I think it was his output speed that caused...

    There was a follow up where Superman discusses the ending of this with Tommy, too.

    I don't know how it would work for others, maybe pretty well because a lot of people don't see the appeal of...

    Not really to me at least. Reboots especially aren't so much about fixing the original concept as fixing what they'd become. A lot of times they're actually trying to regress in some ways, like Byrne...

    I'm kinda confused, as I was thinking about "fixing" as in changing the character more than continuity.

    For comparison, there's the Spectre rip off Punisher with special avenging powers and then...

    That was Steve Rude. He's done a number of Superman stories over the years, World's Finest and Hulk vs Superman being the biggest.

    We never really got Kirby on the actual character but the list of...

    Ah, can't believe I forgot it was Plastino. Sadly I never think of him as his era wasn't my favorite.

    Oksner is definitely one of my favorite old school artists and partners for Swan. I never...

    I had a hilariously long list that was erased after days of rereading. Basically if I did my own 80 years trade:

    1. Action comics #47 (Superman), Superman #17 (Man or Superman, When Titans Clash)...

    On cooperation with the law and



    I agree.



    Probably, but one's a Superman comic and the other isn't, so I think it's hard to argue as a case of influence for Superman. I haven't seen...

    Being one of the most influential comics and specifically influencing a separatefranchise are two different things though.

    As for Byrne, the popular writer and artist brought in to revamp...

    The idea of Miller being a "subconscious influence" for writers who don't cite him just sounds like a way to stick him to things one doesn't like. Miller's story was an alternate future created...

    DC is called the Distinguished Competition.

    But like Dispenser said, O'Neil was probably the first conscious effort. Then arguably Wolfman about a decade later.

    Swan reminds me of the old Art Institution commercials that used to run. He's basically from the first generation of comic artists but has an older style, going back to his own dad in observational...
