    I just read the latest book! SO good, I planned on going through the first few pages but I had to finish the whole thing.

    It's too bad. So many great artists over the years and such a hugely influential book. I saw the Jim Jarmusch movie the "Dead Don't Die" and it plays exactly like a Mort Drucker movie parody from...

    I know it's been mentioned before but I want the following stories more widely known and reprinted soon!: Superman 296 to 300. I think they are all Elliot S! Maggin, Cary Bates, and Curt Swan. I...

    For me, when I first read the Claremont Byrne X-Men, I was of course floored, but I was also prepped by years of reading those great Legion/Superman digests and re-prints. I do love the 70's and 80's...

    It is absolutely the 3rd issue you mentioned. It has a beautiful ending scene for Ferro Lad's brother. At the time, DC was publishing a few thick Anniversary issues that to my mind, were terrific. I...

    I just finished the Jim Starlin Omnibus the Thanos Wars, and it was such a blast. It has the same big narrative feel of the 4th World Books, Alan Moore's Swamp Thing, or Neil Gaiman's Sandman....

    I forgot that there was a Waid Omnibus out there. That one is so tonally different than the Miller or Bendis stuff (can't speak on Brubaker unfortunately), that I might recommend that one.

    I would have a tough time putting together a top ten legion of Superheroes book and it would be heavy on the 60's stuff. I think there are some Dave Cockrum design sheets for the Legion that show the...

    One of my favorite stories ever and the type of Superman stories that always works for me.

    Oof! My bad! I actually forgot that I picked up the Marvel Nights Run through most of the Bendis run in single issues. That's probably why the Bendis run looks so massive to me in retrospect, I...

    Looking back at what I wrote, I actually may just have been summarizing what I read in the introduction to the book or even paraphrasing what I have read on this site about the New Gods. At the time...

    The biggest legacy is that the book rewards obsessive comic book fans. The New Gods were largely forgotten and considered a failure for years upon end. The Great Darkness Saga helped fans reevaluate...

    I like Superman because I imagine him as always committing the most selfless act with every decision he makes. I think Superman never does anything unless it benefits everyone around him, and because...

    I just read through all the BWS Conan! I use to think Buscema was the only artist I could take for Conan but boy I was wrong. I definitely prefer Windsor Smith Conan over all others!!!

    I'm old so I think the Miller stuff is the quintessential Daredevil. (By the way, massive props to Raffi for reading every single comic about a character. I don't think there is a single long time...

    Zenith is okay, the Super heroes take over and become possessed by higher dimensional beings that change our world into their hellish landscape. Anyways, I think Superman gets his society working...

    I think Clark is an idealist and a scientist as much as he is a reporter or hero. I think he would vote Mayor Pete or Cory Booker. Plus the idea of investing in a small town mayor seems too perfect....

    Since they seem so entirely lost as to how to make a Superman movie, I think an Elseworld's story like Red Son or the introduction of the Supersons would be completely smart moves at this point. I...

    I have been reading Jack Kirby's Eternals again and it is amazing how endless his ideas are and how distinct a concept it is from the New Gods. I use to dismiss the Eternals but there is so much good...

    I figure he is always about 35. That would make Batman around the same age and Robin around 20? Dick Grayson I mean.

    It must just be inevitable that things go wrong, or the next generation of super humans just sees the past as oppressive and end up turning the whole system upside down.

    I am a big fan of the series, DC Comics Presents. I think it is every bit as good as Batman's 70's comic the Brave and the Bold. The first 2 issues are by Garcia Lopez and feature Superman and the...

    I imagine Superman as enjoying human beings and being human on a level we can't imagine. I think he delights and needs to be around the League, the Planet, and anywhere on Earth. At the same time, he...

    More and more now I see the influence of Wally Wood, something about the way he does human anatomy, in work by John Cassady, John Byrne, and even Frank Quietly.
