    When you’re 7 or 8 years old, you don’t really think about who wrote what. It wasn’t until I was much older that I realized how many of my favorite Superman stories were written by Pasko. Because...

    The early 90s was the last time I bought a lot of comics. Id continue reading until 2002 but my interest wasnt there. I will say the 90s were a weird time. I was finishing college and not able to...

    The only time I saw his pencil art was in a few issues of “Who’s Who” from the 80’s. I can’t imagine how many comics I have that he worked on. I naturally remember him best from Justice League. One...

    I’ve said this in another thread but as a kid, I briefly thought Superboy & Superman were different people because Superboy had the “ultra modern” sideburns. I absolutely love the Legion from that...

    Maybe they should try the broadcast journalism angle they used in the 70s. I work in tv news and we always have some one man band types who take a vehicle & a camera and handle stories by...

    I grew up watching soaps with my grandmother in the 70’s. The Doctors & Another World mostly. There were some grisly storylines on Another World as I remember. I got into Days in the 80’s because...

    Two pages in and no mention of “Watership Down”. It scares me just to type that! Definitely traumatized me as a child. I mean traumatized!! I haven’t even looked at a clip of it since I was 8 or 9.

    I will never be crazy about all the lightning crackles around Flash when he runs. I’m old I know. Sometimes it looks ok but it’s never been my thing.

    One for me is DC Comics Presents 36 - Superman vs Mongul. It was a great fight because it was clear than Mongul was actually stronger than Superman.
