    Yeah as Adekis mentioned, they most recently did a major Sandman homage with "Denny Swan." Personally I dig Superman #233, #235 (featuring Ferlin Nyxly) and #236 but don't really like the Sandman...

    I'm not entirely sure what "stylized" means if we're including Adams, Reis, Churchill, etc. The was an issue Loeb did with splashes from around the industry, and though I think Joe Mad is phenomenal...

    I hear people talk about pre crisis Superman as if he was Mork but that sounds more like a pushback from later takes than its own reading.

    I'd like it if they insisted on using that to show Kryptonian pride, although it also makes me think of a bilingual person dropping "baño" in the middle of an English sentence.

    If you squint and smudge, sure, you can group them all by something like how they contrast with aspects of his personality. But that's a small box. Admittedly Flash, Spider-Man, and chiefly Batman...

    Yeah, part of me is really glad people like it and I think both creators are great, but for me it just went through the motions. It's a little different if I'm talking about it with someone...

    I never really got the impression that Zod should make Superman "crap his pants" other than that huge push to make him relevant because he was in that movie. The original Jax, Faora, Xadu, Quex,...

    Welcome back. I was a little jealous that you were still posting on the Batman board haha.

    I'm on the fence, trying to decide if I should catch up with Action. There's a lot of interesting stuff,...

    It relates to a sore spot in the character's history, as that idea has been more or less played out for creators willing and able to do Superman who might also have a hard time landing other projects...

    I don't mean starting from scratch. You can hard reboot and still keep Reign of the Supermen in his past. It works better that way, if you're stuck with a new version, instead of the way they're...

    Yeah, I'm done with the idea of soft reboots because they never fail to stop some obvious details from goofing them up. It's like spraying sanitizer on dirt.
