    I have learned to love For Tomorrow. The art is a big part of it but I found it a subversive, almost hidden valentine to Silver Age Superman. I think your take is fairly spot on.

    I would say, John Byrne followed by Grant Morrison. Byrne was asked to redefine the hero and he was given free reign to ignore the previous 50 years of continuity.

    Maybe more than Byrne, Morrison....

    Definitely, i have read so many Superman Origins and Reboots since this book but this one still feels definitive.

    I think it’s very possible DC would publish an oversized Byrne Omnibus later. I can’t believe I didn’t see an Absolute 4th World coming.

    I just read the first issue of the original mini-series. I think it's the first time in 30 years. I am surprised how less jarring re-reading this book feels. So many of the ideas are just part of the...

    Not sure if the site allows links to other content, but these guys break down Alan Moore's comics like nobody else. This video has a terrific discussion...

    I think people just see Captain America more and that's a huge difference.

    I ended up preordering this myself. I was hoping it was going to be oversized but now I suspect it will fit right next to the Gil Kane and Garcia Lopez books from awhile back. I only ever got the...

    I also bought comics off the drugstore comic spinner and I would wait there as they cut the bundle of floppies loose and put them on the spinner. A cousin gave me a cardboard box with a ton of...

    It surprises me that Golden Age All Star Comics and Captain Marvel haven't been Omnibused yet. I think there were complete archive editions for All Star Comics.

    I recently went and saw the entire first two seasons of Doom Patrol on HBO and I am surprised how good the show was, and how much it puts Grant Morrisons vision on TV. I always felt that his stuff...

    I like "Must there be a Superman" and I think it is definitely one of the definitive Superman stories. I do think Maggin probably has a more intuitive understanding of little blue people than he does...

    I have to say, I just re-read Grant's original run and Rags Morales was killing it that entire series. Jeans or Supersuit.

    Speaking of Maggin, I don't get why he thinks Lex would be obsessed with Einstein. That has to be Maggin just sharing his own obsessions.

    I have made peace with Kryptonite. In my head canon, any amount can be deadly because it's not quite science. A tiny ring sized amount can be just as deadly as Metallo's Fire Hose sized Kryptonite...

    I went and read Superman Annual 10, the Day the Cheering Stopped, The Ghost of Superman Future/The Einstein Connection, The Made to Order Menace, and the Man Who Created Superman. I was surprised how...

    I think the Flash debuted in 1958, just like the Fortress of Solitude story from the same year. I think that’s where Superman’s Silver Age begins. (The Super Key to Fort Superman) I wonder if the...

    I finished the first 5 Hellblazer Trades. I made it all the way to Dangerous Habits. I really enjoyed the Delano run, I think he ended up setting a lot of character work down that Ennis runs with...

    Bronze Age is my favorite, the scale of the Superman legend is there but the supporting cast seem more fully realized and the entire tone is less goofball than the Silver Age, but come on let's hear...

    I do like the idea that Superman villains are dark versions of who he is and I think it works really well from Bizarro to Mxyzptlk to Luthor. Each one represent a distorted take on the Man of Steel....

    I think Clark fighting with Kung Fu is just overkill and a bit silly, but I think he probably knows martial arts from Ancient Greece to New Genesis. I think saying he doesn't know how to fight is...
