    Well Year One not doing well with critics is surprising to absolutely no one. Not sure if I'm going to give it a shot or not. I'm still curious about it, honestly I'd be lying if part of me wasn't also hoping for a "so bad it's good" ASBAR situation as soon as this was announced. Anyway saying Golden Age Superman is mandatory to "getting" Superman is too extreme. But so is saying we've moved on or should move on. I've dipped my feet into golden age and enjoy what I've read of it so far. And I got nothing but respect for Siegal and Shuster for everything they did for the medium and for creating my favorite character. But at the same time I very much disagree with the notion that you have to read the first appearances of a character in order to be considered a "true fan."These characters have become bigger than their original creators. I'm a big fan of a lot of characters who've I've never bothered to dig up and read their first appearences, Batman, Hal Jordan, Green Arrow and Aquaman come to mind. And I'd say I 'get' those characters just fine.
