    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 canít 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...

    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...

    Iím 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...

    I love the old Curt Swan Legion stories & I love the 80’s Giffen issues. The mid 70’s Grell period is probably the era that has my heart though.

    The Superman stories from around 1976 - 1981 are some of my favorites. I love the entire decade but that’s the sweet spot for me. The stories had a weight and featured menaces that really challenged...

    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 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...
