    I remember seeing a one page promo for the “Man of Steel” mini series and it had the issue #1 image of him standing there opening his shirt. For me, that was really comforting. While I expected a...

    My favorite version of the character is the pre-Crisis one. All the backstory and mythology of that character is what I think of when I think Superman. However, I loved the period 1986 - 1993 quite...

    DC did some pretty mature and thought provoking stories in the 70’s. I’m not just thinking of the Green Lantern stories but every book had some really well written stories that I can look read and...

    When I was hanging with the “Marvel” kids in the early 80’s, they always looked down on DC comics as being juvenile. Marvel characters felt more rooted in reality. Iron Man built a suit that provided...

    I’d taken a brief break from comics and this was on the shelf when I finally went back. I hadn’t bought regularly for about a year. I absolutely loved it! I get some feel like it was overly critical...

    Far too late to actually go back to pre Crisis continuity. When I think of the Legion, I think of the pre Crisis version. When I think of Superman & Batman, it’s the versions from the 70’s. I loved...

    I looked this up because I remember seeing a lot of Saviuk art when I was a kid in the late 70’s. Mostly Flash & DC Comics Presents. He’s 68 now and started at DC in 1977 so he would’ve been about...

    Two periods for me. I started reading in the mid 70’s. The Bronze Age / Silver Age definitely has a certain uniformity to me. They’re different in tone but silver age Superman feels like 70’s...

    Got to throw this out. My first ever comic was a 1976 reprint featuring the Composite Superman. In the story, this guy who’s green and has half a Superman costume & half a Batman costume shows up. He...

    John Calnan. That name brings back a ton of memories. He did a lot of World’s Finest stories including a few with the Super Sons. He also did a multi issue “Who Killed Batman” story from 1977 that I...

    I stopped reading the books regularly 2002 so can’t really comment on much beyond that. I just lost interest. However, I loved the 1986 - 1993 period. Lots of great stories and a strong continuity...

    There was a story in the 70’s where for various reasons, Superman had to decide whether he would be Clark Kent full time or a super hero. If I remember correctly, when he was Superman full time, he...

    I’m pretty much a diehard Bronze Age, pre Crisis, Superman fan. Fortress with the key, Superboy & the Legion, secret identity, mad scientist Luthor, Kryptonite, all that mess. However, I thoroughly...

    I was still reading the books when I heard about this proposal way back. I liked all
    The writers involved but I’m not crazy about that costume.

    One of my favorite story “arcs” that Pasko did was the one involving Metallo, Skull, & the Kryptonite pipeline. He’s possibly my favorite Superman writer.

    My favorite “team” of writers was Bates, Maggie, Conway, & Pasko from the 70’s. Bates & Maggin were great at defining Superman world and fleshing out his character a bit. Conway & Pasko were great at...

    When I think of the JLA of that period, the first thing that pops into me head is Star Tsar. I seem to remember that being a character tied into the Manhunter story. Maybe not. That name just...

    So if my favorite Superman stories come from the late 70’s. Superman was often physically challenged. It depended on the writer though. Gerry Conway & Martin Pasko were good at writing stories where...

    I enjoyed inker Frank McLaughlin’s work with Dillin but he was just about the only inker he had in the 70’s. Giordano inked him in the early 70’s and I really liked that combo. It would’ve been nice...

    Shadow Lass was interested in Brainiac 5. Don’t know why I linked her with Superboy. Well I guess Triplicate Girl was it!

    I’ve said the same thing anytime Dillin gets mentioned. For me, he drew every character “right”. His Superman looked like Superman. He drew a great Batman. He drew a really good Flash. Hawkman,...

    I seem to remember Shadow Lass originally was interested in Superboy. It was maybe a quick mention back in a 60’s story I read. Other than that, Triplicate Girl & Laurel Kent were it. Lots and of...

    I’m not up on a lot of the current merchandise out but I saw these figures the other day. I also saw a backpack or something where Superman had the blazing red eyes going. Not my thing in all...
